Penguins place goalie Thibault on IR

Pittsburgh Penguins: The Penguins on Sunday placed goaltender Jocelyn Thibault on
injured reserve with a severely bruised knee.

Pittsburgh, which finished with the NHL's worst record
(23-47-8-4) in 2003-04, bolstered its lineup during the
offseason with, among other moves, the acquisition of
Thibault in a trade with Chicago.

Thibault was limited to 14 games in 2003-04 due to a hip injury.
He went 5-7-2 with one shutout and a 2.85 goals-against
average after making his first All-Star Game appearance the
previous season.

In 536 career games, Thibault is 227-218-68 with 36 shutouts and
a 2.70 GAA.
