Chirps from Center Ice

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

J-S Dea Reclaimed; Assigned to Wilkes-Barre

In follow up to the news on Wednesday that the New Jersey Devils placed Jean-Sebastien Dea on waivers, news Thursday on his whereabouts was revealed.

It’s Wilkes-Barre.

That will certainly help a Penguin team at the bottom of the penalty kill in the AHL. Dea’s speed is unmatched.

What isn’t clear is whether Dea makes his way to Rochester this Friday or Toronto this Saturday. I’ve not seen or heard anything to the contrary yet as to his availability, but one would have to assume he will play either Friday or Saturday if not both games. I’m sure Clark Donatelli and the Penguins coaching staff are chomping at the bit to get Dea back on the ice in a Penguins sweater.

Gameday setup for Friday’s matchup against the Rochester Americans will be on blog at 3.
