Waiting On Malkin

from Jason Mackey of the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review,

The injury keeping Evgeni Malkin out this preseason is one the franchise center suffered in the United States — not Russia — according to Penguins coach Mike Johnston.

And with four scheduled practices left before the Penguins' first regular-season game Oct. 9, Malkin doesn't have a lot of time left to prepare....

On Thursday, Sept. 18, the day before the first camp practice, Johnston said he expected Malkin's absence from an undisclosed injury to be “fairly short.”

Johnston said a week later that no additional tests or evaluation had been required; they're simply “waiting it out.”

On Friday, Johnston amended the original timetable, setting it another four to five days.

It has now been five days since that point, and Malkin is showing no signs of a return.
