Penguins roster shuffling due to injuries

The Penguins shuffled some things around with the roster due to some injuries plaguing the team right now

NHL: Pittsburgh Penguins at Ottawa Senators Marc DesRosiers-USA TODAY Sports

As history tends to repeat itself, there are some injuries going on with the Pittsburgh Penguins right now.

It’s not great at all to see Justin Schultz go on Injured Reserve, but it’s worth noting that isn't the Long-Term variety, simply the type to allow a roster spot to open.

Here’s to Frankie Corrado being freed and seeing how he can perform here at the NHL level.

Also not great: Kris Letang missing practice for the second day in a row, but I don’t think there’s any need to panic yet. He seemed quite hobbled after blocking a shot the other night. Given this week’s schedule and no back-to-back (until the weekend), may as well take the available time off as it’s afforded.

Zach Trotman, who was recalled last week also appears slated to see some action.

Given how we have seen Penguins defensemen thrive in face of adversity due to good coaching, let’s hope to see some of that success continue.
