The Pittsburgh Penguins have re-assigned defenseman Scott Harrington to Wilkes-Barre/Scranton of the American Hockey League, it was announced today by general manager Jim Rutherford.
Harrington, 22, has spent a majority of the season with WBS, totaling 12 points (2G-10A) and a plus-19 in 48 games.
This marks the second-straight season that the blueliner has helped WBS allow the fewest goals in the AHL (third-straight season overall doing so for WBS).
Harrington played 10 NHL regular-season games with Pittsburgh this year, including his debut on Dec. 18 against Colorado.
The WBS Penguins play Game 1 of their first round playoff series against Syracuse at home on Friday night, April 24, at 7 p.m.
