Injured Penguins forward Evgeni Malkin (concussion) skated today in Pittsburgh, according to head coach Dan Byslma.

“He was symptom-free (Tuesday) and progressed to exercise today,” Bylsma said. “I think he was on the ice for 30 minutes or so.”

There is still no timetable for Malkin’s return.

Bylsma said Sunday that Malkin “suffered some short-term memory loss and therefore was diagnosed with a concussion” as a result of a fall into the boards in a home game against Florida on Feb. 22.

The Penguins play in Carolina Thursday evening before ending their three-game road trip Saturday in Montreal.

    I doubt he’ll play on this road trip but for him to e skating four days later is phenomenal.
