Penguins doctors to examine Penguins forward Jordan Staal's right foot next week

PITTSBURGH, Pa. - Pittsburgh Penguins forward Jordan Staal's surgically repaired right foot will be examined by team doctors next week to determine if he will be ready for the start of training camp in September.

A tendon in the foot was severed during Game 1 of the Canadiens-Penguins second-round playoff series on April 30 when Montreal defenceman P.K. Subban stepped on it. Staal was expected to be sidelined for weeks, but returned after missing two games—the only games he has missed to injury in his NHL career.

Staal has been unable to skate much this summer because of the injury, which required additional surgery in June. He wore a walking boot and was on crutches during the NHL awards dinner June 23.
