PITTSBURGH (KDKA) – Dustin Jeffrey has been recalled by the Pittsburgh Penguins after being sent down to Wilkes-Barre/Scranton on Sunday.

Jeffrey has played 15 games for the Penguins this season and has five goals and three assists.

On Saturday, his rebound goal late in the second period gave the Penguins a 3-2 lead over the Toronto Maple Leafs. The Penguins would go on to win the game 6-5 in a shootout.

Jeffrey has 17 goals and 28 assists with the Baby Penguins this season.

On Sunday, Jeffrey was sent back to Wilkes-Barre/Scranton with defenseman Brian Strait and forward Joe Vitale.

Strait was called up due to the injuries to Paul Martin and Brooks Orpik.

Martin was a full participant in practice on Monday and is expected to be in the lineup Wednesday night against Toronto.

Orpik suffered a broken finger against the San Jose Sharks last week and is expected to miss four-to-six weeks.
