Three Down on New Years

Announced at around 10:30 Sunday morning the following…


Have to assume with the health of Kris Letting and Trevor Daley that one if not both Ruhwedel and Warsofsky will remain in Wilkes-Barre. Brian Dumoulin is still out with his broken jaw. My guess is it will be Chad Ruhwedel, who played in last nights overtime win against the Montreal Canadiens.

As for Jarry, it is a bit of a risk re-assigning him to Wilkes-Barre being as though should he get hurt while back that leaves Pittsburgh with no NHL contracted goaltender as a back up. Yeah, you could say that Sean Maguire is under an NHL deal, but he is in Wheeling and too green to even consider as a viable option.

Wilkes-Barre plays Tuesday at home against Hartford, Friday at home against Hershey, Saturday at home against Binghamton and again Sunday in Hershey. Pittsburgh is off till next Sunday when they play Tampa Bay.

Assume Jarry gets the Tuesday game against the Wolf Pack, and is either called up or backing up Casey DeSmith Friday against Hershey and then either called back up Saturday or Sunday if not already called up by Friday.

As for Wheeling, the Nailers do not play again until Friday when they host the Toledo Walleye and then again Sunday when they host the Cincinnati Cyclones. My guess is depending on how the dominoes fall later in the week with whenever Pittsburgh recalls Jarry again will spell out Doug Carr’s status for the Penguins this coming weekend. You would have to assume, should Jarry go up before Friday, that Carr gets one of the three weekend games against either the Senators or Bears.

We will see. have a nice New Year holiday.
