OTTAWA -- Right wing Tyler Kennedy will miss at least a month, and possibly six weeks, with a sprained knee.

The Penguins made Kennedy's injury status official Friday after their plane landed in Ottawa, where they will play the Senators today.

Kennedy (six goals, 15 points in 24 games) was injured Wednesday in a shootout loss against the New York Rangers at Madison Square Garden. He left that contest in the third period and did not return.

Kennedy returned to Pittsburgh on Thursday and was evaluated by a team physician yesterday morning. The team placed him on injured reserve.

The Penguins have recently recalled forwards Janne Pesonen and Chris Minard, each of whom played at Carolina on Thursday. Aside from Kennedy, the Penguins are also down center Mike Zigomanis, who is day-to-day with an undisclosed injury.

The team did not update Zigomanis' status yesterday.
