What you missed…
Countdown to Opening NightOctober 16, 2021
77 days to go.
A fan blog about the AHL's Wilkes-Barre / Scranton Penguins
There was a lot of activity on Coal Street Tuesday.
Well this doesn’t make sense. The Pens already have Ben Sexton in town and Pittsburgh skated with 14 forwards on Monday which means some combination of Joseph Blandisi, Adam Johnson or Sam Lafferty are headed back soon.
That explains the Hawkins recall.
Now Wilkes-Barre has Zach Trotman down on a conditioning assignment for six days (three games essentially, at Binghamton Wednesday, home vs. San Antonio Friday and Saturday). Because Trotman had the LTIR tag associated with him as part of the assignment, it is different than a straight up conditioning assignment where the player had been a healthy scratch night in and night out prior to the assignment.
Roster jockeying, tea leaves and conditioning assignments. It’s not even November.
Binghamton Wednesday night. Gameday setup here on the blog Wednesday at 3.
