The Pittsburgh Penguins have re-assigned forward Garrett Wilson to the Wilkes-Barre/Scranton Penguins of the American Hockey League, it was announced today by executive vice president and general manager Jim Rutherford.
Wilson, 27, has played in 14 NHL games with Pittsburgh this year, collecting two assists and posting a plus-3. He has been a valuable contributor to the Penguins' fourth line and to the penalty killing unit.
Pittsburgh wraps up the second half of back-to-back contests tonight by hosting the Minnesota Wild at 7:00 PM at PPG Paints Arena. It will be Ugly Holiday Sweater Theme Night, with the Penguins asking fans to wear their "ugliest" - or craziest or funniest sweaters. Tonight's game will be broadcast on AT&T SportsNet or fans can listen on 105.9 The X.
