Jordan Staal will miss training camp recovering from foot injury
Some tough news out of Penguins camp today as the team announced that center Jordan Staal will miss all of training camp recovering from a foot injury suffered during the playoffs. Penguins GM Ray Shero commented on Staal:
Staal is set to be the team’s second line center with Evgeni Malkin playing on his wing. Losing Staal for any amount of time should the injury continue to nag him will test the Penguins’ depth mightily. Resting Staal and letting him recover fully will likely help ensure that that won’t become an issue.
