The Pittsburgh Penguins and general manager Ray Shero have reporedly recalled defenseman Philip Samuelsson and forward Harry Zolnierczyk from Wilkes-Barre/Scranton – according to the team’s website.
Samuelsson, 22, has played in 26 games for WBS and collected six assists so far this season. He will be looking to make his NHL debut tonight.
Zolnierczyk, 26, has been called-up for the third time this season, but has failed to score a point in three games with Pittsburgh. Down in WBS, he is tied for the team-lead in goals (10) and has registered 14 points (10G, 4A) in 21 games.
No word on if they will play tonight, but with Kris Letang being placed on injured reserve and Evgeni Malkin likely out, they both have a great shot at suiting up.
