      Chad Ruhwedel (lower body) left Sunday's game vs. Vegas and will be out indefinitely.

      Ruhwedel exited Sunday's contest midway through the third period, playing only 10:46 time-on-ice, with a lower-body injury. The California-born defenceman has one point (0G / 1A), 14 blocks, and 18 hits, averaging 12:13 through 15 games this season, playing most recently on the third defensive pair with Ryan Shea.

      Chad Ruhwedel will be a healthy scratch on Tuesday vs. Dallas.

      Ruhwedel failed to pick up a point or shot in any of his first five games played while averaging just 11:48 TOI and will be the odd man out of the Penguins' lineup Tuesday vs. Dallas. The 33-year-old defenseman is being replaced by John Ludvig, who will be making his NHL debut. When Ruhwedel does return to the Pittsburgh lineup he will be looking to improve on his -3 plus/minus.
