The Penguins recalled defenseman Steve Oleksy from Wilkes-Barre/Scranton of the American Hockey League.
A free agent signing past offseason, Oleksy, 30, has played in 44 AHL games this season and has 11 points (one goal, 10 assists). He leads Wilkes-Barre/Scranton with 78 penalty minutes.
The team learned earlier this week that defenseman Ben Lovejoy will be out long term with an upper body injury suffered last Saturday.
The Penguins play in Boston tonight at 7:38 p.m.
