Penguins defenseman Mark Eaton (above, center, with Kris Letang and Bill Guerin), who missed his first game of the season last night, is expected to sit out a week due to an undisclosed injury. Dan Bylma suggested the time frame for Eaton's recovery could change however.
According to Shelly Anderson at PG+, Eaton had his left knee iced this morning.
Eaton was injured Saturday in a collision with Sabres forward Mike Grier.
EN Says: There's not need to rush Eaton back to the lineup, especially with the great Martin Skoula filling in.
