Evgeni Malkin: (Shoulder) Hopes To Return Friday

Update: Malkin (shoulder) took part in contact drills during the Penguins' practice session Wednesday, the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review reports.

Recommendation: Malkin was not a full participant in Wednesday's practice, but he was able to take part for the second straight day, and it appears he is improving. Malkin is day-to-day for now, but he is hoping to return for Friday's game against the Islanders.
