Penguins call up Sam Lafferty

Chaz Palla | Tribune-Review
The Penguins Sam Lafferty plays against the Golden Knights in the first period Saturday, Oct. 19, 2019 at PPG Paints Arena.

Sam Lafferty’s trip to the AHL was a brief one.

Assigned to Wilkes-Barre/Scranton last Thursday as the Pittsburgh Penguins started to get healthy, the rookie forward was called back up Tuesday night.

With Patric Hornqvist on the injured list, the Penguins played Monday night in Boston with 12 healthy forwards. They had 11 for Tuesday’s practice in New Jersey because Evgeni Malkin sat out for what coach Mike Sullivan called “maintenance.”

Lafferty, a Hollidaysburg native, was effective in his first NHL stint, recording three goals, three assists and a plus-4 rating in 10 games.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
