Penguins' Evgeni Malkin is injured, out of All-Star Game on Sunday

Pittsburgh Penguins forward Evgeni Malkin, who ranked third in the NHL scoring race through Tuesday’s games with 22 goals and 54 points, will miss Sunday’s All-Star Game at Staples Center because of what Coach Mike Sullivan described as a lower-body injury.

Malkin had been chosen to join Pittsburgh teammate Sidney Crosby on the 11-player Metropolitan division team for Sunday’s game, which will be played as a mini-tournament involving teams representing each of the league’s four divisions. The NHL did not immediately name a replacement.
