News: Bortuzzo (upper body) remains a few days away from playing, Seth Rorabaugh of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports. Impact: Head coach Mike Johnston said Monday that Bortuzzo was ready return, but he changed course Tuesday, and said that Bortuzzo is still about "5-to-6 days" away from taking the ice. Based on Johnston's estimate, Bortuzzo will likely return to action either Saturday against Buffalo, or Tuesday against Minnesota.(RotoWire, )

News: Bortuzzo (upper body) and Simon Despres took turns as Pittsburgh's sixth defender in Saturday's morning skate. Impact: It was pretty much assumed Bortuzzo would enter the lineup when healthy, but the Pens have apparently decided to keep veteran Rob Scuderi active while one of the two young blueliners will likely sit -- at least for Saturday's tilt in Nashville.(RotoWire, )

Coach Mike Johnston acknowledged that if Bortuzzo is able to get in a full practice Friday, he could be cleared to return to action Saturday versus the Predators.(RotoWire, )
