PITTSBURGH (KDKA) – The Pittsburgh Penguins had a scheduled day off on the ice, but the front office made two roster moves.

According to a statement from the Penguins, forwards Jason Williams and Colin McDonald have been sent back down to the team’s AHL affiliate in Wilkes-Barre/Scranton.

In eight games with the Penguins this season, Williams has recorded one goal and one assist. McDonald has not found the score sheet in five games.

Jordan Staal, Sidney Crosby and Simon Despres have been progressing in their recoveries from varying injuries.

Earlier this week, head coach Dan Bylsma said that Staal and Despres were about five to 10 days away from returning.

Both are dealing with knee injuries and returned to practice this week.

Staal suffered his injury in a collision with former Penguins Mike Rupp in a game against the New York Rangers on Jan. 6.
