Pittsburgh Penguins defenseman Mike Matheson will be out "longer-term" with an upper-body injury, head coach Mike Sullivan revealed Sunday. There's currently no timeframe for his return to the lineup, Sullivan added.
The 26-year-old was injured during the Penguins' second game of the season against the Philadelphia Flyers and was a late scratch for Sunday's contest. Defenseman Juuso Riikola took his spot in the lineup.
Matheson averaged 15:52 minutes of ice time over the two games he's appeared in.
