Pittsburgh, PA (Sports Network) - Pittsburgh Penguins defenseman Paul Martin
will miss the remainder of the regular season due to a broken bone in his
wrist that will require surgery.
Penguins head coach Dan Bylsma made the announcement prior to Saturday's game
against the New York Islanders, stating that Martin is expected to be
sidelined around six weeks. The veteran blueliner apparently sustained the
injury during Thursday's 4-0 victory over Winnipeg, which extended
Pittsburgh's winning streak to 14 games.
Martin had been in the midst of a strong season, topping all Pittsburgh
rearguards in goals (6) and points (21) while recording a plus-12 rating in 33
The Penguins are also currently without two-time All-Star defenseman Kris
Letang, who's dealing with a lower-body injury.
