PITTSBURGH (AP) -The Penguins recalled forward Tyler Kennedy from their American Hockey League affiliate in Wilkes-Barre/Scranton on Saturday.
Kennedy, a fourth-round pick in the 2004 draft, made his NHL debut Saturday night in Pittsburgh against the Montreal Canadiens. The 5-foot-11, 183-pound Kennedy was tied for second in scoring for his AHL team with five points (three goals, two assists) in six games. He had 12 goals and 25 assists for the AHL Penguins last season.
Pittsburgh had an open roster spot, so there was no corresponding move. Veteran winger Gary Roberts did not practice Friday and was not in the lineup Saturday.
