Chirps from Center Ice

Have No Fehr, It’s Sunny Tomorrow

With Eric Fehr down with what Mike Sullivan told Pittsburgh media a, “significant lower body injury” which will sideline the Penguins center for at least a month, the Pittsburgh Penguins recalled rookie center Oskar Sundqvist Thursday from Wilkes-Barre / Scranton.

Sundqvist is 5-11-16 in 39 games with the Penguins this season. He has a goals for percentage of 46.81% and an even strength goals for percentage of 50%. He’s a penalty killer and a center, which fills the role left when Fehr went down with injury.

Wilkes-Barre hasn’t made a recall from Wheeling as of this writing, but Clark Donatelli told media today he’s going to recall two players. Dominik Uher, Dominik Simon and Sahir Gill all did not practice today so if I was a betting man, I’d call up Anton Zlobin and probably Patrick McGrath. All of Wheeling’s other top scorers are either already recalled to the AHL or not on AHL deals meaning that the Penguins would need to sign the player in order for him to play here.

Or the Penguins can go beyond Wheeling and sign another ECHL contracted player from another team. I’d expect the news on a recall to come Friday morning.

Here is Seth’s post on the Sundqvist recall.

Gameday setup for Pens at Falcons hits the blog Friday at 3.

Let’s Go Pens!
