Penguins lose Malkin, Bjugstad to 'longer term' injuries

Sullivan noted that Malkin will be out longer than Bjugstad.

Pittsburgh Penguins forward Evgeni Malkin is sidelined long term with a lower-body injury but is not expected to miss the entire season, coach Mike Sullivan announced Monday.

Jared McCann happened in the second period and the rest is history as the Penguins throttled the Columbus Blue Jackets in a 7-2 rout on Saturday night.

Malkin collided into the boards with Blue Jacket's defenseman Vladislav Gavrikov in the second period, which resulted in the injury to his lower back. Bjugstad sustained his injury in the third.

Malkin has scored one goal in two games this season.

Malkin had 21 goals and 72 points in 68 games a year ago, while Bjugstad had nine goals and 14 points in 32 games with the Penguins after coming to the team from the Florida Panthers.

Only once in the past six seasons has the three-time all-star played at least 75 games.

Bjugstad, chosen by the Florida Panthers with the No. 19 pick in the 2010 NHL Draft, has 205 points (96 goals, 109 assists) in 428 games with Florida and Pittsburgh.

Pittsburgh will go without the star center in Tuesday's contest against the Winnipeg Jets - and beyond.
