News: Bortuzzo (upper body) felt ill Wednesday morning and will undergo precautionary tests for the mumps. Impact: Since Bortuzzo was already dealing with an upper-body injury that prevented him from playing in Monday's game, the addition of the illness to his medical report probably rules him out of Thursday's contest against the Avalanche. More importantly, the Penguins will hope that Bortuzzo hasn't become the latest casualty to the virus, which has already struck forwards Sidney Crosby and Beau Bennett. Fellow blueliner Olli Maatta and goalie Marc-Andre Fleury were also feeling under the weather Wednesday and will undergo testing for the mumps.(RotoWire, )

News: Bortuzzo left Saturday's game after two periods with an undisclosed injury and will be re-evaluated, according to coach Mike Johnston. Impact: In 11:59 TOI, Bortuzzo took two shots on goal and delivered four hits in 14 shifts. The Penguins play Monday, meaning that there will be little turnaround time for the defenseman to recover from his ailment.(RotoWire, )

News: Bortuzzo will be eligible to play Monday against the Rangers after completing his two-game suspension. Impact: There was no official word on whether Bortuzzo, who gives Pittsburgh a physical edge defensively, will suit up against New York. Rookie Brian Dumoulin has filled in admirably for Bortuzzo, but there's a good chance Bortuzzo will skate on the Pens' third pairing Monday.(RotoWire, )
