PITTSBURGH (KDKA) – The Pittsburgh Penguins recalled Dustin Jeffrey Tuesday morning and reinforcements could be on the way for tonight’s game against the Avalanche.
According to the Penguins’ official website, Jeffrey was recalled from a conditioning stint with the Wilkes-Barre/Scranton Penguins. His status for tonight’s game against the Colorado Avalanche is unknown.
Jeffrey played in two games with the Baby Pens where he recorded one assist and three shots on goal.
Tyler Kennedy has been out of the lineup with a concussion since Oct. 15, but may play against the Avalanche.
During the morning skate, Kennedy skated on the third line with Matt Cooke and Richard Park.
On Monday, head coach Dan Bylsma said Kennedy and Steve Sullivan were going to be game-time decisions.
Sullivan did not practice on Monday after leaving Saturday’s game with a lower-body injury. On Tuesday, he was back on the top line in the morning skate with Evgeni Malkin and James Neal.
Sidney Crosby and Eric Tangradi were also on the ice, but did not skate with any specific line.
