The Penguins have placed Chris Kunitz (undisclosed) on injured reserve.

Kunitz is battling an undisclosed injury, so he’s been moved to IR, meaning he will miss at least one week. His move to injured reserve opened up a roster spot for the Penguins to recall Jake Guentzel from Wilkes-Barre/Scranton (AHL). There is no word on the severity of Kunitz’s injury at this time.
