The Pittsburgh Penguins have recalled defenseman David Warsofsky from Wilkes-Barre/Scranton of the American Hockey League, it was announced today by executive vice president and general manager Jim Rutherford.
Defenseman Brian Dumoulin was placed on injured reserve.
Warsofsky, 26, is joining the Penguins for the second time this season. Earlier this year, he was plus-1 in four NHL appearances with Pittsburgh.
The 5-foot-9, 170-pound Warsofsky leads WBS defensemen in scoring this year with 21 points (5G-16A) in 20 games. He is one of just six AHL blueliners averaging a point per game.
Warsofsky, a Marshfield, Massachusetts native, ranks fourth in the AHL, and first among D-men, with a plus-16. His four power-play goals are tied for fourth among AHL blueliners.
Warsofsky comes to Pittsburgh riding a four-game point streak (2G-6A-8PTS) and he has at least one point in nine of his past 10 games (3G-12A-15PTS).
Over the past two seasons, Warsofsky has 27 points (7G-20A) in 37 AHL games with WBS and one goal in 16 NHL contests with Pittsburgh.
