The Pittsburgh Penguins have received some good news on the injury front regarding back up goalie Tomas Vokoun, but the update on forward Beau Bennett was not as promising after a setback for the 22 year old.
According to the team, Bennett suffered a setback while recovering from hand/wrist surgery that will add an additional three to four weeks to his timetable for recovery.
Beau Bennett had a setback. 3-4 week timetable. More a “bump in the road,” per #Pens coach Bylsma

Bennett initially suffered the injury back in November, so it has been a slow road back to the ice.
While there is a chance Bennett could be healthy enough to return to the team in time for the playoffs, there will be plenty of rust and it would be unlikely that he could shake off the rust and be a real contributor.
