Penguins have ‘ballpark idea’ for Evgeni Malkin’s return

The Pittsburgh Penguins have a “ballpark idea” when star forward Evgeni Malkin will make his season debut, head coach Mike Sullivan said Wednesday. “We have a ballpark idea of when we think he’ll be available,” Sullivan said. I’m always reluctant to put a date out there, because if we don’t meet that date, everyone speculates.
