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.

It means a lot to us, we're very excited. We're looking to continue to build on [our] top core talent of young players. It's just a great opportunity for us to really build high.

— Panthers vice president of hockey operations Travis Viola after Florida won the No. 1 pick in the NHL Draft Lottery
