Penguins' Yeo back at practice

BY foxsports • January 18, 2010

Pittsburgh Penguins assistant coach Mike Yeo has returned to practice and is expected to be behind the bench Tuesday against the Islanders after being hospitalized earlier this month with a blood-pressure problem.

Yeo spent several days in a hospital following a Jan. 2 game in Tampa. He has since been placed on medication, and he did not accompany the Penguins on a five-game road trip that ended Saturday.

Yeo said he hadn't missed a game or practice in 10 years of coaching before having his recent problem.

Yeo, a former Penguins prospect whose career was ended by a knee injury, joined the team as an assistant coach in 2005 and was retained after Dan Bylsma replaced Michel Therrien as coach last season.
