Penguins' Derrick Pouliot: Recalled from conditioning assignment
Pouliot (undisclosed) was recalled from his conditioning stint with AHL Wilkes-Barre/Scranton on Monday.
It's unclear exactly when he will return to the lineup, but now that he's back in the NHL it could be as soon as Wednesday. The defenseman played three games without a point in the AHL, and he didn't get a point in his one NHL game this year either. He will be a healthy scratch candidate once he's back in the lineup, so he's by no means a guaranteed play each game, which significantly hurts his fantasy value.
