Carl Hagelin will likely miss Game 1 of the Eastern Conference Final on Saturday night.

The Pens forward stayed on the ice after Saturday's morning skate, which would indicate that he won't be an option against Ottawa tonight. Hagelin missed Game 7 against Washington on Wednesday night and it appears as though the injury will cost him one more game.

Carl Hagelin has been dealing with a lower-body injury.

That's the reason why Hagelin missed Game 7 of the second round. He did participate in Friday's practice though, so perhaps he'll be available for Game 1 of the Eastern Conference Final.

Carl Hagelin will not play in Game 7 on Wednesday.

It's not clear why that is. It's possible that Hagelin is a healthy scratch, but it's more likely that he's not available for health reasons. Perhaps he's still dealing with an issue stemming from the lower-body injury that kept him out of the lineup in the first round, but that's just speculation on our part.

Carl Hagelin ended Game 5 on the second line with Phil Kessel and Evgeni Malkin.

Coach Mike Sullivan was trying to get the duo going as he moved Bryan Rust off the line and first replaced him with Chris Kunitz before Hagelin got the chance. "We just didn't think they (Washington) had the zone time that we expect, so sometimes we make a little tweak to see if we can be proactive and help the lines." Sullivan said. "Sometimes, it helps. Sometimes, it doesn't. But that was the logic."
May 8 - 10:04 AM

Apr 29 - 7:56 PM

Carl Hagelin was absent from the morning skate, leaving his status up in the air ahead of Game 2.

"It doesn’t mean anything," Penguins Coach Mike Sullivan said of Hagelin not participating. "This morning was an optional skate. So everybody will be game-time decisions." Hagelin hasn't played since March 10 due to a lower-body injury. We will keep you updated on his status ahead of tonight's Game 2 matchup with the Capitals.

Carl Hagelin (lower body) was able to fully participate in Friday's practice.

Hagelin had joined the Penguins for previous practices, but he had been getting no or limited contact until now. Now that he's progressed to full contact, Penguins coach Mike Sullivan is calling Hagelin a game-time decision for Saturday's contest. It remains to be seen who would be scratched to make room for Hagelin if he does play. "Regardless of what we line we put him on, he brings that element of speed, his ability to stretch the ice, his pursuit game, forces turnovers all the time and we can create a lot of offense off of it," Sullivan said. "He’s a good penalty killer; he’s a solid two-way player. So we can use him in a number of different capacities, but I think his speed certainly helps us play the type of game that we want to play and we’re a more competitive team when he’s in the lineup."

Carl Hagelin (lower body) joined the Penguins for Thursday's practice.

Hagelin was wearing a regular jersey as opposed to the no-contact one he had on Wednesday. That being said, he only endured limited contact Thursday morning. Additionally, he remained on the ice with the projected extras, so it would be a surprise if Hagelin plays in Game 1. Penguins coach Mike Sullivan said he's still day-to-day, but is close to returning.
Apr 27 - 1:34 PM

Carl Hagelin (lower body) took part in Wednesday's practice, wearing a no-contact jersey.

Coach Mike Sullivan said, "Big step today, getting involved in team practice. He's getting eager. Take it day-to-day. He's a lot closer." Still, it doesn't look like Hagelin will be ready for Game 1 against Washington on Thursday night.
