The Penguins have placed Paul Martin on injured reserve due to a broken bone in his wrist.
He will require surgery and will be out of action a minimum of six weeks. This is a huge blow to the Pens and those who have Martin on their fantasy rosters as the veteran rearguard was enjoying his best season in many. With Kris Letang out with a broken toe, the Penguins may be looking to acquire another offensive defenseman. Perhaps Ryan Whitney would fit the bill.
