Sill to make NHL debut with Penguins

NEWARK, N.J. -- Pittsburgh Penguins rookie center Zach Sill is making his NHL debut Saturday night at Prudential Center against the New Jersey Devils. The Penguins recalled Sill from Wilkes Barre/Scranton of the American Hockey League on Friday.

Sill, 25, has four points (one goal, three assists) and 25 penalty minutes in 13 AHL games this season. He played two preseason games with the Penguins in September before returning to Wilkes-Barre/Scranton for a fifth season. He was signed by the Penguins as an undrafted free agent on July 14, 2009.

Sill took Joe Vitale's spot in the lineup. He's on the fourth line, centering Tanner Glass and Craig Adams.
