Pittsburgh Penguins forward Taylor Pyatt‘s Monday night was cut short after he suffered a lower-body injury delivering a hit against the Ottawa Senators. The team announced that he won’t return, giving him just 22 seconds of ice time tonight.

The Penguins claimed the 32-year-old off waivers from the New York Rangers in early January.

He has two goals in 13 contests with Pittsburgh after managing a single assist in 22 games with the Rangers this season. The former first-round pick (eighth overall by the New York Islanders in 1999) peaked with two consecutive 37-point seasons with Vancouver in 2006-07 and 07-08, including a career-high 23 goals in 06-07.

      I thought this guy was a bum when the Penguins picked him. It’s not the end of the world be any stretch with him getting hurt, but he has been a serviceable bottom 6 forward since he has been here.
