VANCOUVER, B.C. – Pittsburgh goaltender Marc-Andre Fleury will miss the Penguins’ game against the Vancouver Canucks with a broken left ring finger.
Fleury fractured the finger on his catching hand in the second period of a 3-2 victory over Edmonton on Thursday night. He finished the game, but is listed as day-to-day.
He skated Saturday morning and doesn’t expect the injury to affect his participation on Canada’s team at the Vancouver Olympics next month.
Vancouver forward Pavol Demitra, a member of Slovakia’s Olympic squad, made his season debut Saturday. He has been out since hurting his shoulder in last year’s playoffs. He had surgery in May and again in mid-October.
John Curry was to make his fourth NHL appearance in goal for the Penguins.
