Penguins' Staal has foot surgery, return unknown
TribLIVE Sports Videos
Penguins center Jordan Staal had surgery last night to repair a tendon injury.
Rumors are circulating that Staal is out for the season, but Penguins coach Dan Bylsma said that this isn't necessarily the case.
"Jordan is day-to-day," Bylsma said.
Bylsma suggested that Staal might be able to return to the postseason at some point.
It is wildly unlikely that Staal will return this series. Montreal rookie defenseman PK Subban's skate blade apparently ripped through Staal's skate and tore a tendon on the top of his foot.
