According to a source, the Penguins are expected to recall Dustin Jeffrey and Paul Bissonnette for tonight’s game against the New Jersey Devils.
Bissonnette 23, made the Penguins roster out of training camp and appeared in 6 games for the Penguins. In 16 games with the Wilkes Barre/Scranton Penguins, Bissonnette recorded 6 points and 82 penalty minutes.
Bissonnette has been playing very well in WBS and one specific team in the Eastern Conference has been targeting Bissonnette.
Michel Therrien was behind the call up of Bissonnette. Therrien wanted Bissonnette called up a few weeks ago when the Penguins played Philadelphia but the front office went with Connor James.
Jeffrey 21, has recorded 17 points in 30 games for WBS and will center Bissonnette and Eric Godard.
