The Pittsburgh Penguins recalled defenseman Robert Bortuzzo from Wilkes-Barre/Scranton today, after he was sent down just recently on a conditioning assignment – according to the Pens’ website.

Bortuzzo was kept on the 23-man roster so this doesn’t come as a shock. The Pens are now down two of their top defenseman, Kris Letang and Paul Martin, who also lead the team in ice-time.

In 11 contests for the Pens this year, Bortuzzo has collected two points (1G, 1A) and skated to a plus-3 rating.

On his assignment he played in three games, registering an assist and skating to a plus-2 rating.
