PITTSBURGH (KDKA) – The hits just keep on coming for the Pittsburgh Penguins as Evgeni Malkin and Ron Hainsey have been added to the injury report.

According to head coach Mike Sullivan, Malkin will not play tonight against New Jersey due to an upper- body injury.

Meanwhile, Hainsey left Wednesday’s game against the Flyers and did not return. Sullivan classified his status as “week-to-week” with an upper-body injury.
