The Penguins have recalled rugged forward Pierre-Luc Letourneau-Leblond from Wilkes-Barre/Scranton of the American Hockey League.
The Penguins, who play host to the Washington Capitals tonight at Consol Energy Center, have several injuries.
Letourneau-Leblond, 28, has one goal, one assist and 137 penalty minutes for Wilkes-Barre. He has spent most of his pro career in the AHL but has played in 40 NHL games with New Jersey, registering three assists and 101 penalty minutes.
His recall comes a day after the Penguins promoted forward Nick Drazenovic.
