Eaton to be evaluated Sunday morning; Sidelined for weeks?
Of the Penguins top 6 defenseman, defenseman Mark Eaton is the only one of the top 6 to play in all 36 games.
That is about to change.
Eaton left in the second period of Saturday night’s game against Buffalo after suffering a knee injury and a source told me he had a brace on his knee and was on crutches following the game.
Eaton will be evaluated Sunday morning in Pittsburgh and while the injury doesn’t appear to be as serious as the knee injury he suffered in 2007-2008 season, it is to the same leg and there is some early concern from the organization.
