BOCA RATON, Fla. -- Pittsburgh Penguins forward Evgeni Malkin is expected to miss one to two weeks with a lower-body injury suffered in the first period of Saturday's game against the Boston Bruins.
Penguins general manager Jim Rutherford provided the injury update following the break of small group meetings at Day 1 of the NHL general managers meetings Monday in Boca Raton.
Malkin has 28 goals and 40 assists in 63 games this season.
Rutherford also said that Patric Hornqvist, injured in Sunday's 5-1 loss against the Detroit Red Wings, will miss approximately one week.
The Penguins have dropped two straight games, but Rutherford expressed confidence in his team.
"As long as we get healthy, I feel good about our team," Rutherford said.
The Pens sit third in the Metropolitan Division behind the league-leading New York Rangers and the New York Islanders.
