Chirps from Center Ice

A fan blog about the AHL's Wilkes-Barre / Scranton Penguins

Call-Ups, Call-Downs, Collins

Busy Monday morning on Coal Street.

Joe Morrow’s NHL cup of coffee lasted one day. He was returned to Wilkes-Barre almost to the second since when he was recalled. He was scratched in the 4-1 loss to New Jersey last night.

Reid McNeill was recalled from Wheeling. He’s a defenseman. He may be enjoying his AHL cup of coffee today, as with him on town, WBS has 8 D on the roster (B. Dumoulin, M. Eaton, A. Grant, R. McNeill, J. Mormina, J. Morrow, P. Samuelsson, C. Wild) unless one of the d-men are still hurt, I can’t see McNeill sticking around.

Chris Collins was signed to a PTO today by Wilkes-Barre. You may remember Collins from a few years ago playing on the team in 2010-11 that collapsed in the second round of the playoffs won the AHL’s regular season title. I checked the Chirps from Center Ice archives (900+ posts strong, by the way) and found him to be more of a quiet role player who killed penalties. Collins ranked second in points for his DEL team overseas last season, and bounced around North America this season playing for the ECHL’s Las Vegas Wranglers and the AHL’s Springfield Falcons.

Jonathan will have more later most likely. Hell, Tom might even have something too.

Let’s Go Pens!
