Penguins coach Mike Sullivan gave an update on Tanev’s status today, after the forward missed practice.
Sullivan listed Tanev’s status as out on a ‘week-to-week’ basis.

Sullivan then added that Tanev’s injury indeed did take place during Saturday’s game against the Bruins.
Teddy Blueger, who also recently returned to the lineup following time with an injury spoke about how he has been feeling.

Tristan Jarry spoke about his status after leaving last week’s game early with an injury.
On why he left following the first period of the game on March 29: "I think it was just more precautionary than anything. They didn't want it to get any worse. It was the right time and moment to do it. It was something the staff decided and I was okay with it." https://t.co/8on2lOnVxQ— Pens Inside Scoop (@PensInsideScoop) April 5, 2021
