Penguins recall Dustin Jeffrey from AHL
Forward Dustin Jeffrey has been recalled from an AHL conditioning assignment, and likely will play for the Penguins tonight against the Colorado Avalanche at Consol Energy Center.
Jeffrey was sent to AHL affiliate Wilkes-Barre/Scranton last Tuesday after appearing in six games with the Penguins. While on his conditioning assignment Jeffrey played twice and recorded an assist.
Penguins coach Dan Bylsma said Monday that wingers Steve Sullivan (lower-body injury) and Tyler Kennedy (concussion) would be game-time decisions. They were expected to participate in the club's morning practice today.
Jeffrey is still finding his rhythm after surgery to repair torn right-knee ligaments in March. He was unable to fully participate in training camp, and Bylsma said last week his conditioning assignment had nothing to do with performance but rather because Jeffrey needed to get in game situations that weren't available to him when the Penguins were healthier.
Prior to the game tonight fans are encouraged to make donations of cash or canned food as collections will be held at all Consol Energy Center gates to benefit the Pittsburgh Community Food Bank.
