Penguins' Chris Kunitz: Kunitz out Thursday

Kunitz (lower body) will not play Thursday against the Stars, the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review reports.

The winger will have to wait until Saturday for a possible return. Kunitz has stated that he wants to be fully healthy when he comes back and this gives him that chance. Jake Guentzel will likely continue to play top-six minutes in his absence.
