Penguins recall Philip Samuelsson and Harry Zolnierczyk

The Pittsburgh Penguins announced this morning that the team has recalled defenseman Philip Samuelsson and forward Harry Zolnierczyk from Wilkes Barre/Scranton.
This is Samuelsson’s first NHL callup. The 22 year old defenseman was the Penguins second round pick in 2009. Samuelsson the son of former Penguin Ulf Samuelsson, is a defensive minded defenseman who has been playing top pairing minutes in Wilkes Barre. He is a plus-3 in 26 games for Wilkes Barre.
The team will place Kris Letang (upper body) on IR and Deryk Engelland is not eligible to play as he awaits a suspension hearing on Wednesday.
The Penguins host the Toronto Maple Leafs tonight and we’ll have some morning skate updates in the 10:00 a.m. hour.
