Matt Niskanen (ankle) will miss Sunday's contest against the New Jersey Devils.
Niskanen had been playing with Kris Letang this campaign and was off to a good start with three points in five games before the injury. "It is feeling better. I've been able to do more and more things on the ice every day. I'd like to think I'm close (to returning), but we'll just have to wait and see how I progress. Got a few more steps to take," said Niskanen.
