The forwards moved down were Nick Drazenovic, Pierre-Luc Letourneau-Leblond, Steve MacIntyre, Jayson Megna, and Adam Payerl. The defensemen sent to WBS were Scott Harrington, Philip Samuelsson, and Brendan Mikkelson.
What’s interesting is that they’ve kept top prospects Olli Maatta and Derrick Pouliot on the roster this far; however, both of them are likely to be re-assigned.
Pittsburgh now has 35 players on their active roster, and they must get down to 23 by the start of the season.
Expect 12 more cuts in the coming days.
