The Pittsburgh Penguins have re-assigned goaltender Emil Larmi to the taxi squad, it was announced today by general manager Ron Hextall.
Goaltender Maxime Lagace and forward Justin Almeida have been re-assigned to the Wilkes-Barre/Scranton Penguins of the American Hockey League.
Larmi, 24, has split the season between the taxi squad and WBS, where he's started in six games. Prior to his time in North America, the 6-foot, 185-pound goaltender spent three seasons with HPK of Finland's top professional league (Liiga) as their starting goaltender, compiling a 50-44-29 record (wins-losses-ties), 2.07 goals-against average, .931 save percentage, and 15 shutouts.
Pittsburgh returns to action tomorrow night at 7:00 p.m. with a game against the New York Islanders at PPG Paints Arena.
