Sutter tested negative for mumps and has been cleared to return to the team.

Sutter missed the last two games while he was in isolation being tested for mumps. His results came back negative and he can return to the team, which likely means he will be back in the lineup on Saturday vs. the Capitals. Sutter has 14 points (7G / 7A) in 32 games this season.

Sutter has been sent back to Pittsburgh to be tested for mumps.

Sutter will not play on Monday because he has been sent home to be tested for mumps. Sutter will be joined by Thomas Greiss and Steve Downie, who are also being tested for the virus. The Penguins have been hit harder than anyone by the mumps virus and will be down a few more players tonight vs. Florida.

The Penguins have re-signed forward Brandon Sutter to a two-year contract worth $6.6 million.

Sutter, 25, is coming off his best playoff performance to date. He set new career highs in goals (5), assists (2), points (7), shorthanded goals (1) and plus/minus (+7), while his 2:57 average shorthanded time on ice per game ranked second among all Pittsburgh forwards. The 6-foot-3, 190-pound Sutter suited up for 81 of Pittsburgh’s 82 games in 2013-14, tallying 13 goals and 13 assists for 26 points. Sutter played a vital role in the NHL’s No. 5-ranked penalty kill unit (85%), placing second among all Pittsburgh forwards with 2:18 shorthanded minutes per game.

Sutter (lower-body) left Monday's game and did not return.

Sutter was injured while killing a penalty in the second period. While Sutter was able to finish his shift, he limped to the bench when it was done and needed assistance heading down the runway. If Sutter’s injury is long-term, it will be a huge loss for the Pens. He was arguably Pittsburgh’s best player in Game 5 and was the catalyst behind their 3-1 win, which set the stage for them to clinch the series tonight.

In Malkin’s absence, the Penguins will adjust their lineup for Sunday. The team will elevate its centers with Brandon Sutter assuming Malkin’s spot between Beau Bennett and James Neal, Dustin Jeffrey centering Matt Cooke and Tyler Kennedy, and Joe Vitale filling the role on the fourth line.

Depending on how long Malkin is out Sutter could be a nice pickup playing alongside James Neal.

Sutter is happy to be in that mix. He had five power-play goals two years ago, when he finished with 21 goals, but had limited power-play time last season as his total goals dipped to 14.

Sutter played a more defensive role last season, centering the third line. He should improve his offensive output to the 40 point range with more PP time. The subtraction of Erik Cole should give him a nice opening.
