Penguins' Olli Maatta: Nature of injury more clear

Maatta has a "fairly severe shoulder separation" and is expected to miss at least a month, Josh Yohe of The Athletic reports.

It was expected that Maatta suffered a shoulder injury, but it's now clear he has a serious issue. Justin Schultz (lower leg) will be returning from injured reserve soon so the Penguins will simply place him into Maatta's spot in the lineup. Maatta could be a candidate for long-term injured reserve to give the Pens salary cap relief.
