Fantasy owners of Pittsburgh Penguins forward James Neal will continue to wait at least two more weeks before they get the former 40-goal scorer back.
Neal has been out since October 3rd when he re-aggrevated an upper-body injury. Despite his absence, Evgeni Malkin continues to produce (3 G / 6 A) and the Sidney Crosby line has carried the load up front. The Penguins are 7-1-0 with a banged up roster, so the rest of the NHL is dreading the return of Neal and Kris Letang.
Letang skated once again on Saturday, but was held out of the game. They are back in action tomorrow against Colorado – Letang could make his season debut then.
Monitor Letang’s status after the Penguins morning skate.
