Bennett, 21, was playing on forward Evgeni Malkin’s second line before the Russian dynamo went down with a shoulder injury. In 19 games this season he’s registered nine points (2G, 7A) and skated to a plus-7 rating.
Bennett’s stay in the AHL might be short.
When the rosters expand in April, Bennett will more than likely be recalled.
