Report: Beau Bennett Has Wrist Surgery


Pittsburgh Penguins’ forward Beau Bennett reportedly had wrist surgery Thursday, and is expected to be out the next four months – according to the Pens’ Twitter handle and website.

Bennett missed the Pens’ Game 7 loss to the New York Rangers, so there’s a possibility he wasn’t able to go because of a re-aggravation to his wrist. However, when head coach Dan Bylsma started Tanner Glass over Bennett, it was originally thought to be because Bylsma wanted more grit.

Bennett missed 50 games during the regular-season due to a hand/wrist injury, and Josh Yohe of the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review tweeted that Bennett was never really 100 percent when he returned for the Pens’ home stretch.

Despite the details stating he had surgery on his hand/wrist during the regular-season and now the summer, Bennett tweeted that he’s never broken his hand or wrist.

With all this information, who knows what’s exactly valid. All we know is Bennett’s had a problem keeping his hand/wrist unharmed, and that now he’ll take four months to recover.

In 21 regular-season games, Bennett collected seven points (3G, 4A), and in 12 postseason tilts he registered five points (1G, 4A).
