Beau Bennett (lower body) didn't participate in Tuesday's practice.

Beau Bennett will remain sidelined Monday night versus the Rangers.

The young Penguins forward will remain day-to-day with a lower body injury and not dress Monday against the Rangers.

He's played just seven games this year, scoring a goal and a pair of assists.

Beau Bennett didn't practice with the Penguins on Tuesday due to a lower-body injury.

Bennett was hurt late in Monday's game. His career has been essentially put on hold for the last two seasons due to injuries, but Penguins coach Mike Johnston rose to Bennett's defense against the perception that he's injury prone. "When you look at the injuries he's had," Johnston said, "it's just the way things happen. Maybe it's just a stroke of bad luck. He's trained hard. He was ready for the start of the season. I'm convinced it's just one of those things. For him, maybe this will be the end of it."

Beau Bennett hasn't recorded a point in three games since returning from a lower-body injury.

"When something happens to your lower body, it's always in the back of your head. Mentally you have to get over it. Eventually I will," Bennett said. Of course, it also doesn't help that he's averaged just 10:15 minutes per contest. He's got a lot of offensive upside, but we can't recommend owning him in standard leagues until he earns a bigger role with the Penguins.

As expected, Beau Bennett made his NHL season debut on Tuesday.

Bennett was sidelined for the start of the season due to a lower-body injury. He took part in two AHL contests prior to Tuesday's game, but he was still used sparingly. He had a minus-one rating and logged just 9:35 minutes of ice time.

Nov 11 - 6:46 PM

Beau Bennett has been called up by the Pittsburgh Penguins.

Bennett had five assists in two AHL games. He's been devastated by injuries over the last couple of years, but he still has the potential to establish himself as a top-six forward.
Nov 11 - 1:52 PM

Beau Bennett has five assists in two AHL games.

Bennett is too good for the minors, but it remains to be seen if he can make the transition to the NHL. Of course, the bigger roadblock for him has been his health as he's been hit hard by injuries over the last couple of years.
Nov 11 - 11:14 AM

Beau Bennett might be playing in the AHL for a little while.

Wilkes-Barre/Scranton coach John Hynes suggested that Bennett needs to prove something before he'll be able to rejoin Pittsburgh. "'He has to leave no doubt that he's a full-time National Hockey League player," Hynes said. "It's strong work ethic. It's really being a difference-maker out there." Bennett has the potential to develop into a top-six forward, but he been slowed by injuries in recent seasons.
Nov 8 - 11:13 AM

Beau Bennett has been cleared for contact and he'll be sent to the minors to get some skates in while Pittsburgh goes on the road.

However, the reassignment isn't a formal conditioning stint. "It's an opportunity for him, with us being on the road and not having quality practices as we talked to you about," coach Mike Johnston said. "We'd like these guys to have some time in practice to get through practice. He needs that. So he has a chance to go down to Wilkes and get quality practices in this week." He suffered an injury to his medial collateral ligament during the preseason.
Nov 3 - 5:41 PM

Beau Bennett (lower body) might make his return within the next couple of weeks.

Bennett has a lot of potential, but he just can't catch a break. In addition to missing at least the first month of the 2013-14 campaign, he was limited to 21 contests in 2013-14. He'll be worth keeping an eye on once he's finally healthy.
Oct 30 - 9:32 AM

Beau Bennett (lower body) hasn't been cleared for contact yet.

Bennett is expected to get the green light to participate in contact drills after getting three or four practices under his belt. He hasn't played yet this season, but might be able to return next week.
