The Pittsburgh Penguins have assigned defenseman Zach Trotman to the Wilkes-Barre/Scranton Penguins of the American Hockey League on a conditioning assignment, it was announced today by executive vice president and general manager Jim Rutherford.
Defenseman Brian Dumoulin has been placed on injured reserve retroactive to Friday, October 18.
Trotman, 29, split the 2018-19 campaign between WBS and Pittsburgh. The Carmel, IN native played 13 games through the final stretch of the regular season in Pittsburgh, recording one assist and a plus-four. Prior to his recall to Pittsburgh in February of last season, Trotman played 24 games for WBS and recorded five points (1G-4A).

Wilkes-Barre/Scranton’s next game is Wednesday night, when the team travels to Binghamton to face the Devils at 7:05pm.
The Penguins are back on home ice this weekend for a pair of contests (Friday and Saturday, both at 7:05pm) against the San Antonio Rampage, the Western Conference team’s first visit to NEPA since 2009.
