PTO Update: Mark Pysyk out “longer term”, rise of Colin White

The Penguins opened camp with a high number of professional tryouts (PTOs) of five, though one was a minor league candidate in Peter Abbandonato that has already been released. The others, Mark Pysyk, Colin White, Austin Wagner and Libor Hajek all had various levels of realistic chances of making the roster, though after just one week some fortunes have changed.

Pysyk, who missed all of last season with a ruptured Achilles tendon last year, is now out again. The latest injury has only been officially described as “lower body” and “longer term” which are two things especially in this case that sound like a serious blow to Pysyk’s attempt to keep his career going.
