Penguins notebook: Defenseman Mike Matheson out several weeks

Penguins defenseman Mike Matheson will be sidelined on a week-to-week basis with a suspected face injury. His status was announced by coach Mike Sullivan via video conference Monday afternoon. Matheson was injured during the second period of Saturday’s 3-0 road win against the Washington Capitals when Penguins goaltender Tristan Jarry inadvertently lifted a clearing attempt into the left side of Matheson’s face.
