Penguins promote five players for stretch drive
The Pittsburgh Penguins have recalled forwards Chris Minard, Jeff Taffe, and Dustin Jeffrey from Wilkes Barre/Scranton of the AHL. Goaltender John Curry and defenseman Ben Lovejoy were also recalled.
The Baby Penguins’ season ended last week with a loss in the seventh game of a playoff series with the Hershey Bears.
The five players recalled don’t figure to get into game action barring multiple injuries, but they’ll be “Black Aces” and stick with the team for as far as it goes.
