The Pittsburgh Penguins and general manager Ray Shero have reportedly called-up forward Chris Conner from Wilkes-Barre/Scranton - according to the team’s twitter handle.
Conner, 29, was signed by Pittsburgh this offseason to a one-year contract, but failed to make the team at the start of the season.
He’s played in three contests for WBS so far this season, and he’s tied for the team lead in points (4) as well as goals (3). He’s been a big reason as to why the team has started out 3-0-0.
There’s no indication on whether or not he’ll play in Saturday’s matinee against the Vancouver Canucks, but we know his game in the AHL hasn’t gone unnoticed.
In 76 career games between the regular-season and the playoffs for Pittsburgh, Conner has recorded 20 points (10G, 10A) and skated to an overall plus-5 rating.
