All right so he’s not Sidney Crosby, but Tyler Kennedy is looking like he’s ready to go for tonight’s game against Colorado. Kennedy has been out with a concussion of his own and while all eyes have been on Crosby and how he’s doing, Kennedy is set to get back on the ice.

Kennedy has been out since October 15th and has missed 11 games with the Pens with his ailment. With just one goal and two assists in six games, Kennedy hasn’t quite looked like the 20-goal scorer he was last year, but getting back into action with his old running crew like Jordan Staal and Matt Cooke should help.

The Pens would have to remove Kennedy from injured reserve by 5 p.m. ET today if they intend on playing him tonight.

In case you’re wondering, no, Crosby won’t be playing tonight.

    this is big. people dont give kennedy enough respect for what he does in the corners and on the forecheck. i would love to see him up front with malkin and neal instead of sullivan. at least kennedy can finish, sullivan hasnt shown me anything worthy of first line credibility
