The Pittsburgh Penguins are reporting that defenseman Paul Martin returned to team practice Tuesday afternoon – according to Sam Kasan of the team’s website.

Martin, who hasn’t played since February 28th, left the game against the Carolina Hurricanes following the second intermission after he suffered what’s now being described a lower-body injury.

The 6-foot-1, 200-pound defenseman has been working with Penguins strength and conditioning coach Mike Kadar the past couple days, but still is unsure as to when he will suit up for Pittsburgh.

Martin had this to say following Tueday’s practice – per Kasan:

“We’ll see how (Wednesday) goes in the skate. Its been getting better everyday. I’ve been working off the ice, too.”

He also added that he probably needed “a couple more days,” before he’s fully recovered.

Stay tuned for updates on whether or not Martin will be able to go against the Philadelphia Flyers Thursday.

Pens got the Flyers Thursday in Philadelphia at 7 p.m.
