Bennett’s original timetable for recovery was 8-10 weeks, and he is now amidst his 14th week. For me, I was expecting him to be ready once play resumed on Feb. 27 for Pittsburgh, however, considering he’s just skating by his lonesome, it’s difficult to speculate when he’ll be back now.
Bennett’s health has been troublesome for Pittsburgh, but hopefully he can come back in tip-top shape, looking to contribute crucially for the Pens’ top-line.
In 12 games this season, Bennett’s registered just three points (1G, 2A).
Connor was given a timetable of 6-8 weeks for healing, after he had surgery. He may require more time to heal, although, he is amidst his 8th week, so it’s possible he could return soon.
However, once he is healthy, there’s a good chance, to me, that he gets re-assigned due to the depth.
In 19 contests, Connor has compiled five points (4G, 1A) and skated to a minus-3 rating.
