All-Stars, Re-Assignments, Waivers, Oh My!

Lots of stuff going on today. My Second Quarter Grades are done, and would have run in this time slot, but instead will get bumped to Friday at noon.
Pittsburgh sent Jayson Megna and Beau Bennett back to Wilkes-Barre today. Philippe Dupuis, Alex Grant, Warren Peters, Riley Holzapfel, Trevor Smith, Dylan Reese, Benn Ferriero and Brian Strait were placed on waivers today. They have until noon tomorrow to clear.
Strait is the only one that runs the highest risk of being claimed. Jonathan Bombulie blogged his thoughts earlier today. We’ll see if he clears tomorrow.
Bennett was named to the 2013 AHL All-Star Team this afternoon. You can check out the Penguins press release here and the rest of the names that made the team here. Bennett was a slam dunk to make the team in my opinion. Honorable mentions would have included Riley Holzapfel and Trevor Smith.
The Outdoor Game Sunday will not be shown on local TV in Wilkes-Barre.
People have asked if the Penguins are going to have a special jersey for the Outdoor game. My thought is no. They’ll just go with the standard road black jerseys. If they do announce it, it would have to be soon. I’ll have pictures of it in some form of social media if it happens.
Check out the blog tomorrow for the Second Quarter Grades at noon.
