  • Penguins' Chris Summers: Demoted to minors

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (10/17/17) The Penguins reassigned Summers to AHL Wilkes-Barre/Scranton on Tuesday.

    Ian Cole was cleared for action Tuesday after missing three games due to a mouth injury, so Pittsburgh is no longer in need of Summers' services as a depth defender. The 29-year-old American will, however, continue to be one of the first players the Penguins turn to when they're dealing with injuries at defense this season.

    Penguins' Chris Summers: Promoted to big club

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (10/10/17) The Penguins recalled Summers from AHL Wilkes-Barre/Scranton on Tuesday.

    Pittsburgh has back-to-back away games Wednesday and Thursday this week, so Summers will slot in as the Penguins' seventh defenseman during their abbreviated road trip. The 29-year-old American will likely be returned to the minors ahead of Saturday's matchup with the Panthers.

    Penguins' Chris Summers: Waived by team

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (9/26/17) Summers was placed on waivers by Pittsburgh on Tuesday, James Mirtle of The Athletic/a> reports.

    Summers -- a 2006 first-round draft pick by the Coyotes -- signed with the Penguins in the offseason and will head to AHL Wilkes-Barre/Scranton, assuming he clears waivers. The 29-year-old has 70 NHL contests under his belt, which will likely make him an instant leader with the Baby Pens.

    Penguins' Chris Summers: Grabs two-year deal

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (7/1/17) Summers put pen to paper on a two-year, two-way contract with Pittsburgh on Saturday.

    Summers tallied four goals and eight helpers in his 74 minor-league contests last year. The University of Michigan product was selected 29th overall in the 2006 NHL Draft by the Coyotes but was never able to secure a regular role within their organization. While the occasional call-up is definitely in the offing this season, the bulk of the defenseman's starts will likely be with AHL Wilkes-Barre/Scranton.

    Rangers' Chris Summers: Placed on waviers

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (10/4/16) Summers and three teammates were put on waivers Tuesday by the Rangers in order to reassign them to the minors, Renaud Lavoie of TVA Sports reports.

    Summers came over to New York as part of the Keith Yandle deal back in March of 2015 and has played in just six outings for the Rangers since. Primarily used in AHL Hartford, the blueliner offers little in terms of offensive production, which extremely limits his fantasy value. In addition to the 28-year-old, New York also waived Tommy Hughes, Chris Brown, and Mathew Bodie, all of whom will report to the minors if they go unclaimed.
