Pens Recall D-Man Brian Strait

http://penguins.nhl.com/club/news.ht...fb-pghpenguins

Quote:
The Pittsburgh Penguins have recalled defenseman Brian Strait from Wilkes-Barre/Scranton of the American Hockey League, it was announced by executive vice president and general manager Ray Shero.

Strait, 23, currently leads all WBS defensemen with three assists and four points through the first five games of the season. His plus-6 rating leads the team and is tied for second-best in the AHL.

Strait, 6-foot-1, 200 pounds, was one of Pittsburgh’s final cuts in training camp. The Boston, MA native skated in four exhibition games, tallying one goal and posting an even rating in four games.

Strait, who was originally drafted by the Penguins in the third round (65th overall) of the 2006 NHL Entry Draft, made his NHL debut with Pittsburgh on Feb. 21 of last season against Washington. He was scoreless in three NHL games in 2010-11.

Since turning professional prior to the ’09-10 season, Strait has appeared in 158 career AHL games for WBS, totaling 28 points (5G-23A) and a plus-50 rating. Before joining WBS, Strait played three collegiate seasons with Boston University of Hockey East, helping the Terriers capture the NCAA national title in 2009.

Does this mean Letang's hearing isn't going to end well??

EDIT: Sorry, I didn't even read the Letang Hearing thread...it's been a long night..

So they'll recall Strait, but they won't recall Tangradi for offensive help. Just trot out MacIntyre and give him 2 minutes. That makes perfect sense. It's not like we need to score goals anyway.

Yeah that's not a bad idea either.

He's been one of WBS best players on a very thin roster. Very deserving of a game even if Letang is a go.

So who's going on IR, because Strait gives us 24 active players. Will it be Orpik, Kennedy or Malkin?

I think you can put guys on IR retroactively; I know you can do it with LTIRs.

I know, but one of them needs to be put on IR for sure, regardless.

Then you just IR Orpik retroactively from the start of season. He'd still be eligible to play tomorrow if he's healthy.

Good point. I don't think they do.

Edit: after check the CBA I can't find the relevant roster limit section, but the Penguins are banking some cap space.
