Pens Recall Forward Chris Conner
The Pittsburgh Penguins have recalled forward Chris Conner from Wilkes-Barre/Scranton of the American Hockey League, it was announced today by executive vice president and general manager Ray Shero.

Conner, 26, is tied for second on the team in scoring with nine points (3G-6A), helping WBS to an East Division leading 10-1 record for 20 points.

Conner, who has played 79 career NHL games, originally signed with the Penguins organization prior to the 2009-10 season. In that campaign, he appeared in eight games – and one postseason contest – with Pittsburgh, totaling two goals and three points.

Conner (5-foot-8, 180 pounds) completed his first year with WBS in 2009-10, ranking second on the team in points (56) and assists (37), while chipping in 19 goals in 59 contests. He added four playoff points (2G-2A) in four games for WBS.

The Westland, Mich. native played four seasons with Michigan Tech, recording 69 goals and 129 points in 151 games. Conner, who was named to the 2004 Western Collegiate Hockey Association Second All-Star Team, finished his career as the school’s leader in shorthanded goals (15) and ranks 19th among goal scorers (69).
