Pens Return Bennett, Megna to WBS
The Pittsburgh Penguins have returned forwards Beau Bennett and Jayson Megna to Wilkes-Barre/Scranton of the American Hockey League, it was announced today by executive vice president and general manager Ray Shero.
Defenseman Brian Strait was placed on waivers and will be reassigned to WBS on Friday at 12 p.m. provided he clears waivers.
All three players skated in Wednesday night’s ‘Black and Gold’ Game at CONSOL Energy Center – with Bennett scoring a power-play goal in the first period and Megna tallying the game-deciding shootout goal.
Additionally, the 14 players from WBS who joined the Penguins for Wednesday’s game have also been returned.
