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. Nov 18 - 11:15 AM

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.

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.

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.

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.

Beau Bennett (lower body) could start limited practices in the next 7-10 days.

The Pittsburgh Penguins announced that Beau Bennett will miss approximately six weeks with a lower-body injury.

The 20th pick of the 2010 NHL Draft has had some really tough injury luck lately. He missed 11 games with a lower-body issue and 51 more thanks to a wrist injury in 2013-14, marring a season many hoped would be a breakout year. One would guess he'd miss anywhere from 10 to 20 games because of this issue based on the team's estimates.

Beau Bennett was hurt during Friday's practice when Kasperi Kapanen's skate clipped Bennett's heel, causing him to fall awkwardly.

"Early indications seem that it wasn't as bad as it looked," Penguins coach Mike Johnston said. Bennett has the potential to become a top-six forward, but he's been held back due to injuries. He only played in 21 games with Pittsburgh in 2013-14.

Marc-Andre Fleury drew the start for Pittsburgh and allowed two goals on 20 shots in two periods of action while 20-year-old Matthew Murray blocked seven shots in a clean frame on his own.
