Pens' Jeffrey recalled from AHL conditioning stint
With Steve Sullivan (lower-body injury) and Tyler Kennedy (concussion) game-time decisions, the Pittsburgh Penguins today have recalled forward Dustin Jeffrey from a conditioning assignment with AHL Wilkes-Barre/Scratnon.

Jeffrey is scoreless in six games this season, but he still might be dealing with the effects of March surgery to repair torn ligaments in his right knee.

Bylsma told the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review that the conditioning assignment was not performance based; rather, it's because Jeffrey needed to get into game situations that weren't available when the Penguins were a fully healthy team.

Quote of the Day

I'm very excited about what happened today. We've worked on this deal with Toronto for a month, or over a month. It got a little bit of legs on draft day, but it really heated up last night, and we were able to complete the deal today.
