According to a Pittsburgh Post-Gazette report, center Jordan Staal has experienced some difficulty with his right foot and will be re-evaluated next week to see if he will be ready to participate in training camp.

Penguins general manager Ray Shero said the tendon on the top of Staal's foot that was cut April 30 is strong, but that there are other issues hindering Staal.

"This is a matter of whether he will be ready for training camp and then, if not, when can he go hard," Shero told the paper

Hope it gets better for him soon...I'd hate to see him miss any training/game time. I don't think he will though, considering he only missed one playoff game after having a tendon in his foot sliced through with a skate. I know he'll work as hard as he can to get back to top form ASAP.
