Kasperi Kapanen is the latest Pittsburgh Penguins forward to go down with an injury as head coach Mike Sullivan announced the speedy winger is week-to-week with a lower-body injury.

Kapanen suffered the injury in Wednesday's win over the Buffalo Sabres and was unable to finish that contest.

The Penguins are already dealing with injuries to forwards Evgeni Malkin (lower-body), Brandon Tanev (upper-body), Jason Zucker (lower-body) and Teddy Blueger (upper-body). Despite that, the team has been one of the hottest in the league recently, going 7-2-1 in their last 10 games.
