Penguins forward Alex Galchenyuk will miss the Penguins’ preseason finale against the Buffalo Sabres at PPG Paints Arena on Saturday due to an undisclosed injury which has kept him sidelined since Wednesday.

According to coach Mike Sullivan, Galchenyuk skated on his own prior during the morning. He has not skated with the team since participating in a morning skate on Wednesday.

The Penguins acquired Galchenyuk in a trade which sent star forward Phil Kessel to the Arizona Coyotes this past offseason. He has appeared in only one game this preseason and has one goal.

Forward Sidney Crosby is scheduled to play after flying back from Rimouski, Quebec overnight for a ceremony in which is jersey was retired by his junior team, the Rimouski Oceanic, on Friday.

Goaltender Matt Murray is scheduled to start and complete the game.

Former Penguins forward Conor Sheary will be scratched by Buffalo due to an undisclosed injury.

Follow the Penguins all season long.
