In addition to the two roster moves, defenseman Jan Rutta missed practice today for a maintenance day.
He’s currently the team’s top right-handed defenseman as Kris Letang and Jeff Petry are both out of the lineup.
The Pens get back in action tomorrow for the first of back-to-back games against the Winnipeg Jets and Carolina Hurricanes.
Tomorrow’s game against Winnipeg will take place at PPG Paints Arena before the Pens hit the road for Saturday’s game.
Puck drop is scheduled for 7 p.m.
