Erixon signed a one-year, two-way contract with the Penguins on Monday. Erixon failed to crack the lineup in 2015-16 and spent the entire season with AHL Wilkes-Barre/Scranton. While in the minors, the blueliner scored three goals along with 17 assists and 44 PIM. Fantasy owners will largely ignore this deal as the 25-year-old is unlikely to burst on the scene for the 2016-17 campaign and will continue being developed outside of the NHL.
Erixon was sent to AHL Wilkes-Barre/Scranton on Wednesday, Dave Molinari of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports. Erixon was recalled from the AHL last Friday, but never ended up dressing for the Penguins. He will now return to the minors and continue serving as organizational depth along the blue line.
The Penguins have recalled Erixon from AHL Wilkes-Barre/Scranton, Jenn Menendez of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports. While Erixon is a well-rounded blueliner in the Pens' system, he doesn't play enough with the parent club to warrant serious consideration in most fantasy pools.
The Penguins assigned Erixon to AHL Wilkes-Barre/Scranton on Thursday. Erixon was sent to the AHL in order to make room for Bryan Rust on the Penguins 23-man roster. Rust will provide the team with additional depth up front while Beau Bennett works his way back from injury, so Erixon may be recalled by Pittsburgh once Bennett is ready to return to the Penguin's lineup.
Tim Erixon was traded Wednesday to the Penguins along with forwards Phil Kessel and Tyler Biggs and a 2016 second-round draft pick in exchange for forwards Nick Spaling and Kasperi Kapanen, defenseman Scott Harrington, and first- and third-round draft picks in 2016, Sportsnet.ca reports.
