Coming off of the 4-2 win vs. Utica, the Wilkes-Barre / Scranton Penguins fifth overall, there were some moves made Sunday morning.
First, defenseman Adam Clendening was recalled from his conditioning stint by the Pittsburgh Penguins. Clendening had six games of AHL action and recorded three assists.
Second, forward Matia Marcantuoni and defenseman Harrison Ruopp were recalled by Wilkes-Barre from Wheeling, presumably as extra bodies as the team heads to St. John’s today to take on the IceCaps Tuesday and Wednesday in Newfoundland.
Third and in the same transaction which recalled Marcantuoni and Ruopp, forwards John McCarron and Patrick McGrath were returned to the Wheeling Nailers. Goaltender Casey Desmith was released from his professional tryout agreement.
Wheeling hosts the Indy Fuel Sunday afternoon.
