Alex Pietrangelo Continues To Be Out With An Upper-Body Injury

from Danny Webster at NHL.com,

Alex Pietrangelo will be out for "the foreseeable future" for the Vegas Golden Knights because of an upper-body injury, coach Peter DeBoer said Wednesday.

The defenseman returned to Las Vegas for further evaluation after he was injured blocking a shot in the third period of a 4-0 win against the San Jose Sharks on Saturday. Pietrangelo, who appeared to favor his left hand, did not play in a 2-0 loss to the Minnesota Wild on Monday.

"Obviously not a great sign that he returned home for evaluation," DeBoer said. "I'm not concerned it's long, long-term, but he's out for the foreseeable future."
