Penguins Injury Update: Olli Maatta will play tonight


By on 11/18/2014 01:43:00 PM

Pittsburgh Penguins defenseman Olli Maatta will be returning to the lineup tonight to face the Montreal Canadiens at the Bell Centre.


Maatta had surgery on November 4th to remove a cancerous tumor from his thyroid gland. He started skating again a week later, but the original prognosis was for Maatta to miss about four weeks, according to the Globe and Mail. Tuesday marks two weeks since the procedure.

Maatta so far has six points (one goal, five assists) this season.
