Blake Comeau LW PIT 25 Days

Comeau (wrist) is expected to return to practice Monday, the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review reports.

Comeau skated on his own Friday and took shots for the second straight day. Pittsburgh wants to give the winger a look with Evgeni Malkin prior the trade deadline before determining whether to trade for a top-six winger on Malkin's line.

Penguins coach Mike Johnston said Thursday that Comeau (wrist) could return next week, Dave Molinari of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports.

After practicing Tuesday, Comeau was cleared to take shots Thursday. It sounds like his first chance to return will be Wednesday's game against the Red Wings.

Comeau (wrist) took to the ice Tuesday, Root Sports reports.

Coach Mike Johnston previously suggested Sunday that Comeau wouldn't travel with the Penguins to Edmonton, but evidently, the team reevaluated his status Monday and were comfortable bringing the forward along. Comeau didn't skate on a regular line Tuesday, so while it seems unlikely that he'll play Wednesday, he could be activated later on during the Pens' Western Canada trip.

Comeau (wrist) skated prior to Monday's session but remains 5-to-7 days away from returning to practice.

Comeau has missed the last 13 games with a wrist injury. It appears as though he'll miss at least another week of practice, and he's without a timetable to return to game action.

Comeau (wrist) is scheduled to receive X-rays later this week.

The examination should allow the Penguins to better ascertain a return timetable for Comeau, who has missed the last 11 games with the injury. He hasn't been cleared to resume on-ice work during that time, but Johnston acknowledged the possibility that if all goes well with his checkup, the winger could begin skating in the next four or five days. He's been a productive addition to the Penguins this season, netting 11 goals and 19 points in 32 games.

Coach Mike Johnson said Tuesday that Comeau would miss several weeks with a suspected wrist injury.

Comeau is just the latest in a long line of casualties for the Penguins, as he's now the 10th skater and sixth forward listed on the team's injured reserve list. Prior to suffering the injury, Comeau had been on track for his best season since 2010-11, mostly as a byproduct of seeing frequent time on the Evgeni Malkin line. With the specter of a lengthy absence now in store, it will be difficult for fantasy owners to justify rostering Comeau until he returns from the injury.

Comeau, who suffered a wrist injury Monday against the Panthers, was placed on injured reserve Tuesday, Dave Molinari of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports.

No word was available on the severity of Comeau's injury since the Penguins didn't hold a morning skate Tuesday, but the placement on IR will result in the winger missing at least three contests. He becomes the 10th player to land on injured reserve for the Penguins, who replaced him with AHL call-up Dominik Uher.

Comeau left Monday's game against the Panthers in the third period with an undisclosed injury, Josh Yohe of the Tribune-Review reports.

Coach Mike Johnston said after Monday's game that Comeau's injury may in fact be serious. Until further news is released by the Penguins, he should be considered day-to-day ahead of Tuesday's game against the Lightning.

Comeau potted his 11th goal of he season -- and third game-winner -- in a 1-0 overtime victory against Colorado on Thursday.

He's scored three goals in his last four games, registering 15 shots. Comeau dished out only one hit Thursday but has totaled 86 hits in 30 contests. The winger has earned his top-six standing and figures to play with Evgeni Malkin -- who assisted on his game-winning score Thursday -- for the foreseeable future.

Comeau netted his second goal in as many nights against a former team Saturday in Columbus.

The forward, who also scored against the Flames on Friday, now has 10 goals and 18 points in 28 games. Comeau has gained the trust of coach Mike Johnston and provided Pittsburgh with offensive production during a time when only Evgeni Malkin has played in all 28 games as a top-six forward.
