James Neal injury: Penguins winger out indefinitely with concussion

Harry How

Injuries continue to plague the Penguins.

Pittsburgh's season hit another bump in the road on Friday when winger James Neal was ruled out indefinitely with a concussion.

The Penguins recalled Jayson Megna from Wilkes-Barre Scranton of the AHL to replace him.

It's unclear when exactly Neal suffered the injury, but he was not feeling well on Thursday and immediately underwent examinations. The injury leaves another hole on the Penguins wings with Beau Bennett out with a wrist injury and Pascal Dupuis out for the year with a knee injury.

Chris Kunitz's status this weekend is also uncertain after his leg collided with a goal post on Tuesday against the Washington Capitals.

The Penguins are all but certain to surpass the 400-man games mark for games lost to injury thanks to this latest ailment, yet they continue to sit atop the Metropolitan Division with 92 points.
