Jordan Staal Leaves Practice With New Injury

Penguins center Jordan Staal has left the Pens' practice after suffering an upper-body injury:

1:17 PM:
Dan Bylsma addressed Staal's condition after pracitce, as he left the ice 45 minutes prior to the end of practice.

On why Staal left the ice early:

Jordan left the ice with an upper-body injury and is getting evaluated right now.

We don't yet know the extent of the injury, but this has to be frustrating for Staal, who looked poised to get back into game action Wednesday after missing the entire season so far with a foot infection. Evgeni Malkin, Kris Letang and Alex Goligoski are all day-to-day. Goligoski left practice today due to an as-yet-undisclosed injury and has missed a lot of practice recently.
