The Pittsburgh Penguins have re-assigned forward Jean-Sebastien Dea to Wilkes-Barre/Scranton of the American Hockey League, it was announced today by executive vice president and general manager Jim Rutherford.
Forward Carter Rowney has been activated from injured reserve.
The Penguins host the Washington Capitals tonight at 7:00 PM at PPG Paints Arena to close out a four-game homestand. Pittsburgh is 3-0 thus far on the homestand, and the Penguins are coming off a 9-3 run in the month of January. Those nine victories led the NHL for the month, and the Pens' 18 points were tied for most in the NHL.
