Injury updates on Evgeni Malkin, Alex Galchenyuk, Brian Dumoulin, Jared McCann and more!

Photo by Joe Sargent/NHLI via Lots of happenings at Penguins’ practice this morning Following an off-day on Sunday, the Pittsburgh Penguins were back at it in Cranberry this morning as they prepped before heading out for a Florida swing. With a team so banged up, there are a ton of updates: Evgeni Malkin and Alex Galchenyuk skated together for about an hour before the team got on the ice.
