The Pittsburgh Penguins have re-assigned goaltender Alex D'Orio to the Wilkes-Barre/Scranton Penguins of the American Hockey League, it was announced today by general manager Ron Hextall.
D'Orio, 22, served as backup in one game for Pittsburgh this season, the regular season finale against Buffalo on May 8.
D'Orio has spent the majority of the season split between WBS and the Wheeling Nailers of the ECHL. With WBS, D'Orio posted a 5-3-1 record, 2.30 goals-against-average and .911 save percentage. In Wheeling, D'Orio played in 11 games, recording one shutout.
The Sherbrooke, Quebec native has spent most of his career with Wheeling, playing in 42 games with the Nailers. D'Orio made his WBS debut during the 2018-19 season but 10 of his 11 career AHL games have come this season.
Pittsburgh faces the New York Islanders in Game 1 of the First Round of the Stanley Cup Playoffs, Sunday afternoon at noon.
