Ahead of the Penguins’ game vs. the Winnipeg Jets on Sunday afternoon at PPG Paints Arena, head coach Mike Sullivan announced injuries for a couple of players.
Sullivan announced that Zach Aston-Reese is dealing with a lower-body injury and is listed day-to-day. Goaltender Louis Domingue is also dealing with a lower-body-injury, but his status is week-to-week.

On Saturday night, the Penguins recalled Radim Zohorna from the taxi squad — presumably to fill in for Aston-Reese while he is dealing with his injury.
