Couple things to touch on this evening that happened today…
Tom Sestito is on waivers. Provided he clears, the Penguins will be down to 25 players. They need to be at 23 next week. It was suggested that the Penguins may cut Jay McClerment and put Patric Hornqvist on injured reserve. That gives them time to leave the window open on auditions for the 3C position and gives them time to continue to evaluate Derrick Pouliot.
Utica is getting the AHL All-Star game again, the second time in three years, last hosting in 2015. This is actually late in the game for the League to announce a host site and usually when things like this happen it means that no other team in the AHL wanted the event. That Utica gets it again for the the second time in three years pretty much speaks to it. I guess it is better than no game at all.
Coal Street cut four players today, Daniel Leavens, Tom Mele, Kenny Ryan and Danny Pick were released and sent to Wheeling. Cam Brown, Hunter Fejes, Dan Milan, Kevin Schulze, Nick Sorkin, and Colin Stevens are the Wheeling contracted players who remain in the AHL with the Penguins.
Penguins will be using more regulars in the lineup Friday against Binghamton. I’ll be there and will have a blog post after the game with a final score and write-up of the game like Wednesday night.
