World Cup of Injuries: Matt Murray out 3-6 weeks with broken hand

Eric Bolte-USA TODAY Sports

Looks like not trading Marc-Andre Fleury this summer has already proven to be a wise call for the Pittsburgh Penguins, as they learned the goalie who played most of their playoff games is injured. From the team:

Pittsburgh Penguins goaltender Matt Murray will miss the next three to six weeks with a broken hand, it was announced today by executive vice president and general manager Jim Rutherford.

Murray suffered the injury on September 19 while playing for Team North America at the World Cup of Hockey.

The Pens regular season starts in just under 3 weeks on October 13th at home against the Capitals.

Luckily the October schedule is the least taxing month of the season for Pittsburgh, who only have one set of games on consecutive days (Oct 17 vs. Colorado; Oct 18 @ Montreal) so Fleury should be able to play almost all (if not all) of the games that Murray may miss.
