A fan blog about the AHL's Wilkes-Barre / Scranton Penguins
September 30, 2013Posted by on
To Wheeling: Forwards: Denver Manderson and Christiaan Minella
Released: Forwards: Kyle Fletcher, Chaz Johnson, Patrick McGrath, Carter Rowney, C.J. Severyn, Cody Sylvester and Scott Zurevinski — Defensemen: Barry Goers, Mike Ratchuk, Clark Seymour and Alex Velischek — Goaltender: Andy Chiodo
Also, Jeff Deslauriers signed a 25 game PTO with Wilkes-Barre meaning that there is a high possibility that after not using more than two goaltenders all of last season, the Penguins could bring three goaltenders with them to Connecticut this weekend when they kick off the fifteenth season in Bridgeport.
EDIT: Just as I hit “Publish” on this post, Pittsburgh announced roster moves. They are:
– Andrew Ebbett and Simon Despres to WBS. Ebbett (and Chris Conner) both cleared waivers. Conner remains with Pittsburgh , for now
– Harrison Ruopp recalled to Pittsburgh.
– Beau Bennett sent to Wheeling.
– Derrick Pouliot returned to juniors.
– Kris Letang and Tomas Vokoun to injured reserve.
The Bennett move is just to get Pittsburgh cap compliant. Letang and Vokoun are legitimately injured. Derrick Pouliot is too young to play in the AHL so he had to go back to juniors. The Despres / Ruopp swap is interesting, but I think it will be just for a day so the Pens can get in under the salary cap. Tomorrow, you will see Bennett get called back up to Pittsburgh, Ruopp sent back to Wilkes-Barre and Despres called back up to Pittsburgh. I guess we will all find out together.
Make sure you check out the AHL Previews going on all week here on the blog. West Division and Midwest Division were today. North Division is tomorrow.
