PITTSBURGH (AP) _ Penguins forward Martin Straka will not return to the ice for at least a few more days after breaking a bone over his left eye in a game against the Los Angeles Kings last week.

In his first game back since breaking his right leg on Oct. 28, Straka was struck in the face with a goalie stick Wednesday as Pittsburgh's Johan Hedberg cleared the puck from in front of the net.

Straka will rejoin the team after he becomes comfortable wearing a face shield.

Team officials had said Straka would not play until mid-March after breaking the left orbital-sinus bone in the Penguins' 5-4 loss to Los Angeles.
