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.
Tim Erixon re-signed with the Maple Leafs on Tuesday to a one-year, $600,000 contract, Frank Seravalli of TSN reports.
