The Pittsburgh Penguins have recalled defenseman Scott Harrington from Wilkes-Barre/Scranton of the American Hockey League, it was announced today by executive vice president and general manager Jim Rutherford.
Harrington, 21, has spent the majority of the campaign with WBS, collecting five assists and a plus-6 in 21 games. Twice this season he has been recalled to the NHL, but he has yet to suit up for Pittsburgh. Harrington has two assists and is plus-3 in six games in December.
A native of Kingston, Ontario, Harrington has played one-plus professional seasons with WBS, where he has five goals, 19 assists, 24 points and a plus-15 in 96 AHL regular-season games. Harrington has two points (1G-1A) in 18 AHL playoff contests.
Harrington was a two-time Ontario Hockey League (OHL) champion with the London Knights and he twice represented Canada at the World Junior Championship (WJC).
