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, )

News: Bortuzzo (upper body) won't play Wednesday against the Flyers, Seth Rorabaugh of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports. Impact: Bortuzzo alternated with Simon Despres on the Pens' third line at morning skate, and while he won't be available for Wednesday's game, he appears very close to a return. 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, )

News: Bortuzzo (upper body) was on the ice for Monday's practice. Impact: Bortuzzo is right on schedule in his rehab process, and should be able to return fairly soon now that he's begun practicing again. The blueliner has yet to suit up so far this season, but recorded 10 assists and 74 PIM in 54 games with the Penguins a year ago.(RotoWire, )

News: Bortuzzo (upper body) is about a week away from practicing fully, Seth Rorabaugh of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports. Impact: It's not clear how much practice time Bortuzzo will need before he is ready for game action, but if he is able to skate in a week as anticipated, he will have a chance to suit up for the Penguins before the end of October.(RotoWire, )
