The Pittsburgh Penguins and general manager Ray Shero have reportedly recalled forward Nick Drazenovic from Wilkes-Barre/Scranton – according to the team’s website.

Drazenovic, 27, was signed to a two-way deal in the offseason, and will be looking to make his debut for Pittsburgh this Wednesday.

Playing in 26 games for WBS, Drazenovic has collected 20 points (7G, 13A) and skated to a plus-6 rating.

Selected in the sixth-round (171st overall) of the 2005 NHL Entry Draft by the St. Louis Blues, Drazenovic has played a total of 11 contests between them and the Columbus Blue Jackets. He has yet to record a point.
