While the Penguins are in the midst of a stretch of several days without a game, the team has made a number of small roster moves.
Drew O’Connor has been activated from long-term injured reserve and the forward has been re-assigned to the WBS Penguins in the AHL. O’Connor has been sidelined since last month, reported to have been recovering from a collapsed lung.
