      Penguins' Kevin Porter: Reassigned to minors Friday

      Porter has been reassigned to AHL Wilkes-Barre/Scranton, per Seth Rorabaughof the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports. Porter made eight appearances with the parent club before getting sent down. During that span, he averaged 11:34 TOI, a reasonable amount for a bottom-six forward. He'll need to earn more ice time before warranting a look in fantasy leagues upon his next call-up.
