The Pittsburgh Penguins have sent Beau Bennett and Jayson Megna down to Wilkes Barre and defenseman Brian Strait has been placed on waivers today, the team announced.
Strait will be sent down to Wilkes Barre, provided he clears waivers by 12:00 p.m. on Friday. No trade market developed for him.
The Penguins, as expected, will be keeping Simon Despres and for regular readers of the site, there are no surprises on how this roster has shaken out.
