The Penguins have placed forward Jeff Taffe on waivers and assigned forward Janne Pesonen and goalie John Curry to their farm team in Wilkes-Barre.
Also, center Kris Beech, who previously was assigned to Wilkes-Barre, has been placed on unconditional waivers. If he continues to refuse to report and clears waivers, the Penguins can terminate his contract in two weeks. Beech is trying to find a team to play for in Europe.
Taffe will be eligible to join the Baby Penguins if he is not claimed by another team by noon Thursday.
Also, winger Paul Bissonnette has switched his sweater number from 67 to 16.
