Pittsburgh Penguins Recall D Simon Despres, Martin Out?
With defenseman Paul Martin‘s game status questionable due to an illness, the Pittsburgh Penguins have recalled rookie blueliner Simon Despres from Wilkes-Barre/Scranton for at least tonight’s game against the Ottawa Senators.
The 20-year-old has one goal and three assists in 13 NHL games this season, and has turned in a solid performance literally every time he’s suited up for Pittsburgh.
Some may argue the Penguins are better off with Despres in the lineup rather than even a healthy Martin, and I wouldn’t argue against that.
Check out my article from earlier today for a few more Penguins updates.
Game time is 7:08 PM.
