Matt D’Agostini placed on LTIR

 

Right winger Matt D’Agostini won’t be in the lineup anytime soon. The Penguins today placed D’Agostini on Long Term Injury Reserve, meaning he is ineligible to play for the first 10 games or 24 days of the season. D’Agostini progression from a lower body injury has been slow. D’Agostini was penciled in to play on the third line. That spot will be taken by Chuck Kobasew.
