Some news and notes to pass your way…

Pens bring up PL3

Pittsburgh has recalled veteran tough guy Pierre-Luc Letourneau-Leblond from AHL Wilkes-Barre/Scranton.

PL3 (I’m not writing out his last name in full anymore), 28, has 137 PIM in 31 game this year and fought 11 times. Unsurprisingly, he skated on the Penguins’ “extras” line with Taylor Pyatt, Zach Sill and Deryk Engelland this morning.

Sens demote Pageau

Ottawa sent diminutive forward Jean-Gabriel Pageau to AHL Binghamton on Wednesday.

Pageau, 21, has played in 21 games with the Sens this year, scoring two goals. The former fourth-round pick has been a quality scorer at the American League level, recording 16 points in 15 games with the B-Sens this year.


— Vancouver sent forward Darren Archibald back to AHL Utica. David Booth will return from a three-game benching tonight in Anaheim.

— Columbus sent defenseman Dalton Prout to AHL Springfield on a conditioning assignment.

    Sad thing is that’s not really the “extras” line, 3 of those 4 are gonna be the 4th line tonite. And all will end up playing if Neal doesn’t suit up. Yikes.

    I mean are these guys even that good? I have never heard of these people.

      Well, they are warm bodies…the Pens are just about out of options, though I’ve been pleasantly surprised by Sill. Too many injuries to worry about skill level, I’m afraid. HOWEVER, this would have been a great season to NOT waive Jeffrey and/or D’Agostini.

    it doesnt even matter, we can play with 2 lines and still win

      Dan Bylsma? Ray Shero? Is that you?

    Not if Neal doesn’t play tonight. The first line is messed up and now the second line might be messed if Neal doesn’t play.
