The Penguins have recalled three players from their farm team in Wilkes-Barre and returned another to the Baby Penguins.

Forwards Chris Minard, Tim Brent and Jonathan Filewich were added to the major league roster, while defenseman Ryan Lannon went back to the American Hockey League. Lannon was expected to play in at least part of Wilkes-Barre/Scranton's game at Hershey today.

Minard, Brent and Filewich will be available when the Penguins face Washington tomorrow at 7:38 p.m. at Mellon Arena. Whether any of them actually plays likely depends on the condition of three players already in the NHL.

Colby Armstrong is listed as day-to-day because of a bruised hip he got during the first period of the Penguins' 2-0 victory in Montreal Saturday. So is Adam Hall, who strained a groin against the Canadiens.

Tyler Kennedy sat out the Montreal game because of illness, and his status for tomorrow night has yet to be determined.

Brent is the Baby Penguins' leading scorer, with seven goals and 28 assists in 39 games, while Minard is second with 17 goals and 14 assists. Filewich has seven goals and 10 assists.

More details in tomorrow's Pittsburgh Post-Gazette.
