The Pittsburgh Penguins cut their active roster to 21 players, it was announced today by Executive Vice President and General Manager Ray Shero.
The Penguins placed five players on waivers with the intention of assigning them to the club’s top minor-league affiliate in Wilkes-Barre/Scranton of the American Hockey League (AHL). They are forwards Ryan Bayda, Paul Bissonnette and Chris Conner and defensemen Deryk Engelland
and Nate Guenin.
The moves leave the Penguins with 21 players on their active roster. Forwards Max Talbot and Mark Letestu and defenseman Ben Lovejoy
are currently on Injured Reserve. Pittsburgh has 24 players on its overall roster – 14 forwards, eight defensemen and two goaltenders.
All NHL teams must submit their 23-man active rosters to the league by 3 p.m. on Wednesday.
