The Pittsburgh Penguins will have 25 players on their roster when they leave today for a 10-day trip to Sweden. The Penguins will have to make one more roster move on Friday, Oct. 3 to get down to a 24-man roster for season-opening games on Oct. 4 and 5 against the Ottawa Senators at the Globe Arena in Stockholm.
 
Forward Connor James and defenseman Danny Richmond were assigned today to Wilkes-Barre/Scranton of the American Hockey League. Injured defensemen Sergei Gonchar and Ryan Whitney will not make the trip.
 
The 25-man roster for the Sweden trip includes 15 forwards, seven defensemen and three goaltenders.
 
The forwards are Sidney Crosby, Evgeni Malkin, Jordan Staal, Petr Sykora, Miroslav Satan, Ruslan Fedotenko, Matt Cooke, Max Talbot, Tyler Kennedy, Pascal Dupuis, Eric Godard, Jeff Taffe, Janne Pesonen, Bill Thomas and Paul Bissonnette.
 
The defensemen are Brooks Orpik, Rob Scuderi, Hal Gill, Mark Eaton, Darryl Sydor, Kris Letang and Alex Goligoski.
 
The goaltenders are Marc-Andre Fleury, Dany Sabourin and John Curry.
 
Once they return from the Sweden trip, the Penguins will have to make another roster move to get down to a 23-man roster for the rest of the regular season. The NHL made a special exception to allow 24 players on the roster for the games in Sweden.
