Pens’ Kobasew out 3-4 weeks

PITTSBURGH — Pittsburgh Penguins forward Chuck Kobasew is out for at least three weeks with a lower body injury.

Coach Dan Bylsma said Kobasew was hurt in the first period of Monday’s 3-1 win over the Carolina Hurricanes. Kobasew, who signed with Pittsburgh as a free agent in the offseason, has two goals in 12 games for the Penguins.

Kobasew’s injury came one game after the Penguins lost defenseman Rob Scuderi with an ankle injury that will require surgery.

The Penguins are already playing without forward James Neal (upper body), forward Beau Bennett (undisclosed injury) and goaltender Tomas Vokoun.
