The Pittsburgh Penguins have re-assigned forward Jean-Sebastien Dea to the Wilkes-Barre/Scranton Penguins of the American Hockey League, it was announced today by executive vice president and general manager Jim Rutherford.
Dea, 24, skated in three games for the Penguins, scoring against the Ottawa Senators on December 8. He was re-claimed by the Penguins off waivers from the New Jersey Devils on November 29.
The Penguins visit the Washington Capitals tomorrow night, December 19 at 8:00 PM at Capital One Arena in a nationally televised contest on NBC Sports Network. Fans can listen to the game on 105.9 The X.
Pittsburgh will return home to PPG Paints Arena to host the Minnesota Wild on Thursday, December 20 at 7:00 PM. That game will be the team's annual Ugly Holiday Sweater Theme Night. The Penguins are asking fans to get in the holiday spirit by wearing their "ugliest" - or craziest, or funniest - holiday sweaters to the game.
