DEA RETURNS TO WILKES-BARRE
The Pittsburgh Penguins have re-assigned forward Jean-Sebastien Dea to Wilkes-Barre/Scranton of the American Hockey League, it was announced today by executive vice president and general manager Jim Rutherford.
Dea, 23, skated in four games with Pittsburgh, scoring his first NHL goal against Carolina on January 23. That tally was also the game-winner. At the AHL level, Dea has produced nine goals, 14 assists and 23 points with a plus-13 in 36 games.
The Wilkes-Barre/Scranton Penguins are back in action tonight when they face off with the Lehigh Valley Phantoms in Allentown. Puck drop is scheduled for 7:05pm.
The Penguins are home on Saturday night to face the Binghamton Devils at 7:05pm. Fewer than 400 tickets remain for Saturday night’s game, and are available through the Penguins front office by calling 570-208-7367.
