Schultz will miss at least four months after undergoing surgery on his fractured left leg.

Schultz underwent successful surgery to repair a fracture of his lower left leg on Sunday. Schultz is expected to miss at least four months, which will open the door for Jusso Riikola to become a full-time NHLer on the Penguins blueline. Jamie Oleksiak will draw n for Schultz on Tuesday and Olli Maatta will likely fill in for him on the second power-play unit.

Schultz is expected to miss time with a lower-body injury.

The Penguins are still waiting for official word on Schultz’s injury, but it looks like he is going to miss some time. Schultz was forced to leave Saturday’s game with a gruesome looking leg/ankle injury and left the Bell Centre with crutches and a boot. “We are losing a good hockey player,” Jack Johnson told reporters, suggesting that the early prognosis is not good. If Schultz does miss time, Just Riikola will have a full-time roster spot moving forward and Jamie Oleksiak will draw into the lineup on Tuesday.

Schultz (lower-body) will be a game-time decision on Tuesday.

Schultz has been sidelined by a lower-body injury for nearly one month, but could be back tonight in Philadelphia. Schultz took part in the Penguins morning skate, so monitor his status when the Pens hit the ice for warmups. He has two goals and eight assists (10 points) in 23 games in what has been an injury plagued season for the blueliner.

The Penguins have placed Justin Schultz (lower-body) on IR.

Schultz left Tuesday’s loss to the Rangers after placing just 9:00 TOI and was placed on IR this morning. His movement to injured reserve means that Schultz will miss at least the next three games and is not eligible to return until next Thursday in Vegas. Frank Corrado has been recalled to take Schultz’s spot on the roster.

Schultz (concussion) is skating and could join the Penguins on their road-trip.

The Penguins are in the middle of a five-game road trip and head coach Mike Sullivan said that Schultz is skating back in Pittsburgh and they haven’t ruled out that he could join the team in Western Canada. With Schultz and Matt Hunwick out, Chad Ruhwedel and Zach Trotman will remain in the lineup.

The Penguins have placed Justin Schultz (concussion) on IR.

Schultz left Tuesday’s game vs. Edmonton after being hit by Drake Caggiula and was diagnosed with a concussion postgame. It’s hard to pinpoint how long he will be sidelined with a concussion, but his move to IR means he’ll miss at least tonight’s game. With Schultz on IR, the Penguins have used that roster spot to recall Frank Corrado.

Schultz (concussion) will be a game-time decision on Saturday.

Schultz has missed the last three games with a concussion, but was at practice on Friday and took part in today’s morning skate which suggests he should be in the lineup tonight despite being listed as a game-time decision. Schultz should play a big role with Kris Letang, Trevor Daley and Olli Maatta all sidelined with injuries.

Schultz (concussion) practiced on Thursday; expects to play on Saturday.

Schultz has missed the last three games with a concussion, but he took part in Thursday’s practice and expects to be back in the lineup for Saturday’s outdoor game vs. the Flyers. With Trevor Daley and Olli Maatta definitely out and Kris Letang potentially unavailable for that game, Schultz and his 39 points (9G / 30A) should play a huge role.
