Corrado was reassigned to the team's AHL Wilkes-Barre/Scranton affiliate Saturday. Corrado was replaced on the top squad by David Warsofsky, but his departure for the minors shouldn't have a large impact given that he's drawn into just two contests for the Penguins this year. The 24-year-old defenseman did rack up eight PIM in his short time, but is unlikely to produce enough for viability in most fantasy formats.
Corrado was recalled from AHL Wilkes-Barre/Scranton on Tuesday, Dave Molinari of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports. Corrado will swap in on the Penguins' blue line for Derrick Pouliot, who was assigned to the AHL in a corresponding move. The 23-year-old -- acquired from the Maple Leafs earlier this month -- skated in seven games with Wilkes-Barre/Scranton prior to his recall, generating one assist and no goals.
Corrado was traded to the Penguins by the Leafs for Eric Fehr, Steve Oleksy and a fourth-round pick, ESPN's Pierre LeBrun reports. Corrado managed to suit up for the Leafs just twice this year, but he's been modestly productive at the AHL level, notching 12 points in 18 games. The 2011 fifth-rounder is coming up on his 24th birthday and still looking to break in as a full-time NHLer; he's going to have trouble doing that for a Penguins team that has a crowd on the blue line. For now, he'll probably continue plying his trade in the AHL.
Corrado was waived by the Maple Leafs on Saturday, theScore reports. Toronto claimed rearguard Alexey Marchenko -- formerly with Detroit -- off the waiver wire, which has deemed Corrado expendable. He only ended up playing in 41 games with the Buds since the start of the 2015-16 campaign, but could be an intriguing acquisition for a team needing speed on the back line. If Corrado doesn't find any suitors, then he may wind up with AHL Toronto.
Corrado was called up from his conditioning stint in the minors Monday, Paul Hendrick of Leafs TV reports. Corrado has played in just one game this season in which he logged 16:24 of ice time and recorded two PIM, a pair of hits, and one blocked shot. Barring injuries to other blueliners, the 23-year-old will likely find himself watching from the press box more often than not.
