Forward Beau Bennett assisted on both of Pittsburgh's goals in the Penguins' 2-1 triumph Wednesday night over the visiting Carolina Hurricanes.

Bennett drew his first assist on on Chris Kunitz's 11th goal of the season, which tied the game at 1-1 at 19:38 of the first period. He got his second assist on Brent Sutter's game-winning goal at 18:18 of the third period. Kunitz also assisted on Sutter's goal, giving him 13 helpers on the season. Bennett doubled his number of assists for the season and now has four. The Penguins ended their four-game losing streak.

Beau Bennett (knee) took part in Wednesday's morning skate.

Bennett is feeling better, but he wouldn't say if he'll return Wednesday night. He's been devastated by health problems over the past couple seasons and that's caused him to play in just 28 NHL games since the start of the 2013-14 campaign.

Beau Bennett (knee and mumps) skated at practice Saturday.

Bennett was injured on November 24 with a knee injury and came down with the mumps a couple of weeks ago. He is apparently ahead of schedule with his return from the knee injury and worked out at home when quarantined with the mumps. "I got three vaccines and I still got it," Bennett said. "That’s just kind of the luck I’ve got right there." Can't argue with Bennett as he has had an extraordinary run of bad luck when it comes to injuries the last few years.

The Pittsburgh Penguins have confirmed that Beau Bennett has the mumps.

Bennett was previously under suspicion because he was displaying mumps-like symptoms. He was already on the sidelines due to a lower-body injury.

Beau Bennett, who was already out with a lower-body injury, might have the mumps.

Bennett has mumps-like symptoms, but the Penguins haven't been able to confirm his condition yet. The Penguins are missing Sidney Crosby due to the mumps.

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

Bennett has missed seven straight contests due to the ailment and is likely to be out for at least another week. He's missing a prime opportunity to get top-six minutes as the Penguins have been without wingers Chris Kunitz, Patric Hornqvist, and Pascal Dupuis.

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. With all the injuries the Penguins have, they need Bennett to heal quickly and provide some much needed depth to the lineup. He's played just seven games this year, scoring a goal and a pair of assists.

Beau Bennett (lower body) is projected to miss about two weeks.

He was hurt in Monday's game versus Boston. Bennett has produced a goal and two assists in seven games this season.

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.
