Chirps from Center Ice

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

Hasn’t Even Started Yet But It’s Started

Sigh. 

Color me shocked that Pittsburgh was pristinely specific about type of injury (hand fracture) and estimated length of disability (3-6 weeks) here. I applaud them and hope that the specifics as to injuries and disability length continue. “Upper / Lower” body injury and status day / week / month to whatever is a terrible and horribly archaic way of describing why your player is not on the ice. 

Seth with more here including the battle brewing now between Tristan Jarry and Leland Irving for the backup role to Marc-Andre Fluery. 

Remember that Casey DeSmith is on an AHL deal and isn’t in the mix. 

Pittsburgh preseason games start this week.
