Pens' Forward Chris Conner Out 6-8 Weeks with Hand Injury


Pittsburgh Penguins’ forward Chris Conner will reportedly miss the next 6-8 weeks after having surgery to repair a hand injury he suffered in Tuesday’s game against the New Jersey Devils – according to Sam Kasan of the team’s website.

Conner has played in 19 games for Pittsburgh this season, and has collected five points (4G, 1A) while skating to a minus-3 rating.

The injured reserve stint comes at a tough time for Conner, considering he had been playing exceptionally well on the third-line. Although it’s a rough break, Pittsburgh has already found his replacement by claiming forward Taylor Pyatt off waivers this morning.
