The Penguins' American Hockey League team is picking up a key reinforcement for the Calder Cup playoffs.

Defenseman Kristopher Letang, whose junior season ended Wednesday night, will join Wilkes-Barre/Scranton and will be available for Game 5 of the Baby Penguins' second-round series against Hershey tomorrow night.

Hershey leads the best-of-seven series, 3-1. The Baby Penguins staved off elimination with a 3-2 overtime victory Wednesday.

Letang began the 2006-07 season with the Penguins, then was returned to Val d'Or in the Quebec Major Junior Hockey League. He is expected to make a strong bid for a job on the Penguins' defense this fall.
