The Pittsburgh Penguins have activated forward Dominik Simon from injured reserve, it was announced today by executive vice president and general manager Jim Rutherford.

Simon, 24, has missed the previous eight games due to a lower-body injury. He has already bettered his assist (9) and point (13) totals from last year in just 26 games this season. Before his injury, Simon had picked up assists in three of his last five games.

The Penguins play their final home game before the holiday break tonight when they host the Minnesota Wild for a 7:00 PM contest at PPG Paints Arena. It is Ugly Holiday Sweater Theme Night.

Pittsburgh plays its final game before a four-day break this Saturday, December 22 when the Penguins visit the Carolina Hurricanes at PNC Arena in Raleigh. Game time is set for 7:00 PM.

Fans can watch both games on AT&T SportsNet or listen to the team's official flagship, 105.9 The X.
