Pittsburgh Penguins’ injured forward Brian Gibbons reportedly skated with the team on Saturday – according to the organization’s Twitter handle.

Gibbons, 25, has been out since Jan. 11 with a lower-body injury, and his original timetable for recovery was on a week-to-week basis.
Although he was able to participate in team’ activities, there’s still no clarification that he’ll suit up for tonight’s tilt against the Dallas Stars, and so we will consider him a game-time decision.
In 13 games for Pittsburgh this season, Gibbons has registered six points (2G, 4A) and skated to a plus-2 rating. Before going down with an injury, Gibbons had four points in his last five games.
