The Pittsburgh Penguins have reportedly sent forward Jayson Megna down to Wilkes-Barre/Scranton – according to the Pens’ Twitter handle.

Megna performed in two playoff games for Pittsburgh, and skated to a minus-1 rating. He logged an average ice-time of 9:30-minutes.
Due to the return of Brian Gibbons, Megna’s spot on the roster became expendable. And, because even Tanner Glass is seeing pine these days, it made Megna’s re-assignment even more easier.
Megna will now jump right into WBS’s playoff run. The baby Penguins’ ousted the Binghamton Senators in the first-round, and will take on the Providence Bruins in the second, which starts Friday, May 9.
Barring an injury, in all likelihood, Megna will finish his season in the American Hockey League (AHL).
In 36 regular-season games for Pittsburgh, Megna garnered nine points (5G, 4A) and skated to a plus-1 rating.
