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.
I spent a long summer thinking about that playoff series and what could have been. [The Blackhawks] ended up being the Stanley Cup champions, so we know we lost to a very good team. It's tough to know how close we were, and it motivates us for this year.
