Penguins add D Kris Letang to growing injured reserve list, Malkin day-to-day with leg issue

PITTSBURGH, Pa. - The Pittsburgh Penguins placed defenceman Kris Letang on injured reserve Monday with an upper-body injury. Coach Dan Bylsma said Letang could return after Christmas.

Pittsburgh forward Evgeni Malkin is day-to-day with a left leg injury. The NHL's third-leading scorer left Saturday's game after sliding hard into the end boards while trying to thwart a Detroit rush. Malkin is not expected to play on Monday night when the Penguins host Toronto.

Letang joins a crowded injured list that includes defenceman Brooks Orpik (concussion), Rob Scuderi (ankle) and Paul Martin (lower body).

The Penguins recalled defenceman Philip Samuelsson from Wilkes-Barre/Scranton of the American Hockey League on Monday. Samuelsson is the son of longtime NHL defenceman Ulf Samuelsson. Pittsburgh also recalled forward Harry Zolnierczyk from Wilkes-Barre/Scranton.
