07:39 PM ET 02.27 | Pittsburgh Penguins head coach Dan Bylsma said that superstar Evgeni Malkin skated for about a half hour Wednesday, making it his first on-ice routine since being diagnosed with a concussion. This comes as great news to Pens fans, but we shouldn't assume Malkin will return anytime soon due to the way concussions are handled these days. Look for him to potentially return next week. Malkin did skate back in Pittsburgh. He was symptom-free (Tuesday) and progressed to exercise today. I think he was on the ice for 30 minutes or so. The rest of the team skated Wednesday except for Paul Martin. He was reportedly given the day off for maintenance, so it's most likely nothing to worry about.

That soon? I though he was concussed. Maybe it was just his period.

Either that of he was constipated, and the Philips caplets finally kicked in...

Never heard of them. I'm strictly a prune juice man.
