The Penguins cut their roster today to 22 players by sending five to their minor-league affiliate in Wilkes-Barre.

Forwards Ryan Stone, Jonathan Filewich and Jeff Taffe and defensemen Kristopher Letang and Mike Weaver were assigned to the Baby Penguins. Weaver must clear waivers, but Taffe cleared waivers last week and the other three don't have to.

The Penguins also signed a forward, Adam Hall, who was in training camp on a tryout, to a one-year contract.

NHL teams are compelled to submit their 23-man rosters to the league office by tomorrow.

The Penguins will open the 2007-08 season Friday at Carolina before returning home the next night to play Anaheim.
