Malkin Suffers Torn ACL & MCL

By: Casey Shea

PITTSBURGH (KDKA) – Pittsburgh Penguins head coach Dan Bylsma updated the status of Evgeni Malkin, who went down with a lower-body injury Friday night, after the team’s practice today.

The news was anything but good.

According to the team’s official website, Bylsma revealed that Malkin suffered a torn ACL and MCL in his right knee.

The team is now exploring treatment options.

No timeline has been given for his return, but it seems likely that Malkin’s season is over.

Malkin suffered the injury after colliding with Buffalo Sabres’ defenseman Tyler Myers in the second period.

Myers fell into Malkin’s knee, forcing it to bend the wrong way. Malkin stayed down on the ice for several minutes before being helped to the locker room.

Malkin had missed the previous five games due to a left knee injury and a sinus infection.
