Penguins recall Bennett from AHL

The Pittsburgh Penguins have called up forward Beau Bennett from their American Hockey League team, the Wilkes-Barre/Scranton Penguins. He could make his NHL debut Friday when the Penguins face the Winnipeg Jets.

In 35 AHL games this season, Bennett has 18 assists and 25 points, and was selected to play in the AHL All-Star Game.

A native of Gardena, Calif., Bennett was the 20th player taken at the 2010 NHL Draft, making him the highest-drafted California-born player in NHL history.

Quote of the Day

[He's] real confident with the puck now, getting it off his stick quick and no second-guessing. We need that. He's such a good guy in the room. He works so hard. That's the big thing. For not a big man, he just fights for every puck and when he scores, the guys appreciate that even more.

— Winnipeg Jets coach Paul Maurice on Mathieu Perreault, who scored two goals in win against Chicago Blackhawks on Tuesday
