Penguins forward prospect Filip Hallander is expected to be sidelined until after Christmas due to a fractured leg, according to a release from his team in Sweden.
Hallander, 19, is said to have fallen into the boards while playing for Lulea of the Swedish Hockey League against Orebro. Prior to the injury, he had one assist in two games this season.
The Penguins selected Hallander, a native of Sundsvall, Sweden, in the second round of the 2018 draft and signed him to a three-year entry-level contract last offseason.
