The Pittsburgh Penguins have re-assigned forward Joseph Blandisi to the Wilkes-Barre/Scranton Penguins of the American Hockey League, it was announced today by executive vice president and general manager Jim Rutherford.
Blandisi, who was acquired from the Anaheim Ducks for Derek Grant on January 17, made his Pittsburgh debut in the Pens' 3-2 overtime win in Arizona on Friday night. He contributed two shots in 6:47 minutes.
Today the Penguins begin their bye week, which will be immediately followed by the All-Star Break. Pittsburgh will next be in action on Monday, January 28 when the Penguins host the New Jersey Devils at 7:00 PM at PPG Paints Arena. All fans in attendance that night will receive a Kris Letang bobblehead. That game begins a three-game homestand for the Penguins, which includes a January 30 visit from Tampa Bay, an 8:00 PM start, and a February 1 matchup against the Ottawa Senators that begins at 7:00 PM.
