The Pittsburgh Penguins and general manager Ray Shero have reportedly recalled forward Pierre-Luc Letourneau-Leblond from Wilkes-Barre/Scranton – according to the team’s website.
Letourneau-Leblond signed a two-way deal with Pittsburgh back in November, and will be looking to make his debut for the team tonight against the Washington Capitals.
In 31 games with WBS this season, Letourneau-Leblond has collected two points (1G, 1A) and skated to a minus-3 rating. His whopping 137 penalty-minutes leads the team in that category.
Selected in the seventh-round (216th overall) of the 2004 NHL Entry Draft by the New Jersey Devils, Letourneau-Leblond has played in 40 career regular-season contests with them and the Calgary Flames. Logging just three assists in those games, the 28-year-old has also played in five postseason contests – all for New Jersey.
