Pittsburgh Penguins executive vice president and general manager Jim Rutherford announced today that the club has recalled 11 players to join the team as members of the 'Black Aces' during the current playoff push.
Ten of the additions have come from the team's American Hockey League affiliate in Wilkes-Barre/Scranton, including goaltender Sean Maguire; defensemen David Warsofsky, Derrick Pouliot, Cameron Gaunce and Frank Corrado; and forwards Tom Sestito, Dominik Simon, Jean-Sebastien Dea, Garrett Wilson and Kevin Porter.
Forward Daniel Sprong has also been recalled from his junior club.
'Black Aces' is a hockey term referring to players added to an NHL club's roster once the minor-league season ends. These players practice with the team and are eligible to play for the Penguins in the playoffs.
