Pelech (upper body) will be unavailable against the Penguins on Wednesday.

In nine games this year, Pelech has tallied a goal, a pair of assists and a minus-4 rating while averaging just 15:26 of ice time. The 22-year-old's fantasy value is also limited by the fact that he isn't part of the team's power play and is used minimally on the penalty kill. While Pelech is out due to injury, Scott Mayfield figures to be his replacement on the blue line.
