Penguins Injury Update: McGinn Skates, Return Not Imminent (+)



Pittsburgh Penguins, Brock McGinn

Consider this the news you missed on Monday as the NHL trade deadline sucked the air out of the room, and all eyes were fixed upon the 32-GM battle royal. Eventually, the Pittsburgh Penguins snagged Rickard Rakell of the Anaheim Ducks just before the 3 p.m. deadline but had to sacrifice a pair of productive fourth-liners.

The Penguins included Dominik Simon, Zach Aston-Reese, a prospect, and a second-round pick for Rakell.

However, the news was lost in the shuffle early Monday morning: Brock McGinn hit the ice with fellow injured winger Jason Zucker. However, McGinn was clearly not at 100%. The winger worked on skills and skating with skills coach Ty Hennes but did so one-handed, including shooting drills.

McGinn held his stick almost exclusively with his left hand. See the video:
