Penguins Paul Martin Out 4-6 Weeks


Penguins defenseman Paul Martin, who missed the U.S.’s final two games of the tournament, suffered a broken hand and will miss the next 4-6 weeks of action, according to head coach Dan Bylsma.

The veteran rearguard was able play a handful of games before heading to the Olympics, only to see his Sochi experience end on a sour note (this coming after he failed to get a game at Turin ’06, and missed the ’10 Games in Vancouver because of a broken left forearm.)

For the Penguins, losing Martin is doubly tough given fellow defenseman Kris Letang is out indefinitely after suffering a stroke in January.
