SAN JOSE, Calif. — Penguins defenseman Ben Lovejoy is out indefinitely with a broken wrist.

Lovejoy was involved in a collision with San Jose centers Joe Pavelski and Logan Couture along the boards when the injury took place. The Penguins were forced to play most of the game with only five defensemen.

Defenseman Alexandre Picard is on the trip and will play Saturday in Los Angeles.

The Penguins are already playing without injured defensemen Zbynek Michalek (broken finger) and Brian Strait (wrist injury). They have played portions of the season without defensemen Brooks Orpik (abdominal surgery) and Kris Letang (suspension).
