How long will the Penguins #1 defenseman be out. DePaoli reports on the latest buzz surrounding Sergei Gonchar.

The Penguins are being very mum on Sergei Gonchar’s injury but the early prognosis on Sergei Gonchar is he may miss 3-4 weeks. A source I talked to this morning was hearing the Penguins think it’s an injury similar to what Malkin suffered two years ago in the preseason. Not severe but severe enough to keep him out of action for a couple weeks. An official prognosis won’t be known until Gonchar get’s re-evaluated this afternoon.
