Chirps from Center Ice

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

TV’s and Taxi’s

Couple things as we head into a weekend.

Pittsburgh did a swap of two forwards and a goalie, reassigning forwards Freddy Gaudreau, Anthony Angello and goaltender Max Lagace to Wilkes-Barre and recalling forwards Jordy Bellerive, Josh Currie and goaltender Emil Larmi in the process.

It’s a cycle that some teams have been doing and something we will have to get used to as we go here. Larmi has been playing his best hockey to date, so the recall is a reward. It will keep him sharp getting in NHL practices and Lagace too seeing AHL live fire. I don’t know what that means for Shane Starrett, who Wilkes-Barre signed in the offseason but who has not appeared yet as backup to Larmi yet.

Gaudreau and Angello are good pieces.

Zach Trotman was reassigned to Wilkes-Barre Thursday. He’s been recovering from knee surgery. Hope to see him in a game soon, as that backline is raw, man.

The other news late Friday was Coal Street’s announcement of six dates where they will broadcast home games. They are:

Wednesday Feb. 24 vs. Hershey 5:00 p.m.
Friday Feb. 26 vs. Lehigh Valley 5:00 p.m.
