Penguins reassign four, place Letang, Vokoun on IR

The Pittsburgh Penguins cut four players from their roster and placed two on injured reserve prior to the League roster deadline.

Forward Andrew Ebbett and defenseman Simon Despres were sent to the Wilkes-Barre/Scranton Penguins, the team's American Hockey League affiliate, and forward Beau Bennett was sent to the Wheeling Nailers of the ECHL.

Derrick Pouliot, the eighth pick of the 2012 NHL Draft, was returned to his junior team, the Portland Winterhawks of the Western Hockey League.

In addition, defenseman Kris Letang (lower-body injury) and goaltender Tomas Vokoun (blood clot) were placed on injured reserve.
