Penguins send Despres to AHL

The Pittsburgh Penguins on Tuesday announced the club had reassigned defenseman Simon Despres to their American Hockey League affiliate, the Wilkes-Barre/Scranton Penguins.

The move comes one day after the Penguins acquired defenseman Douglas Murray from the San Jose Sharks for a pair of draft picks.

In 24 games this season Despres has two goals, five assists and a plus-10 rating.

Quote of the Day

I'm just excited about the opportunity. I've been on the ice earlier than usual and in the weight room, pushing around a little more weights than usual. Every day I go into a workout with a smile on my face and ready to go. When you do have a little more responsibility, you want to take your lunch pail and get ready to work.
