Michalek To Miss Only 2 Weeks After Watching Last Night’s Toronto Game

The Penguins ran tests on injured defenseman Zbynek Michalek for a couple days before announcing how long he’d be out, causing fan speculation that it might be something really serious, but after a preliminary report that Michalek would be out 2-4 weeks, the Penguins are now officially announcing that he’ll only miss about 2 weeks with a “right shoulder injury.”

I imagine his medical prognosis went something like this:

Doctor: It’s a right shoulder strain. Since it’s early in the year, I’d advise taking it easy for 2 weeks, then practicing for a bit and returning to game action about 6 weeks from now.

Michalek: That makes sense, don’t want to come back too early and re-injure it. Oh well — guess I’ll just sit here and watch the Maple Leafs game.

Steigerwald: Colton Orr scores!!! A perfect deflection in front of the net by Orr has given the Leafs a 1-0 lead.

Michalek: I’m coming back in 2 weeks.
