The Pittsburgh Penguins have reportedly placed forward Tanner Glass and defenseman Paul Martin on injured reserve – according to the team’s website.
In 24 games this season, Glass has collected six points (2G, 4A) and skated to a minus-1 rating.
Martin, 32, is reportedly dealing with a lower-body injury, and there’s not timetable for his return to action. Recently gaining the coaches’ confidence to run the point on the power-play, his presence in the locker room will be sorely missed.
In 23 contests this season, Martin has recorded 11 points (2G, 9A) and skated to a minus-1 rating.
Martin has been diagnosed with a fractured tibia and will miss the next 4-6 weeks - according to the team’s Twitter handle.
Martin has a fractured tibia and will be out approx 4-6 weeks, per coach Bylsma #Pens
