SOUTHPOINTE -- In an expected move, the Pittsburgh Penguins have re-assigned forward Cal O'Reilly, the team announced this morning.
O'Reilly will report to Wilkes Barre/Scranton.
O'Reilly a healthy scratch the last three games, was claimed on re-entry waivers Feb 1, but had little to no impact in six games with the Penguins, tallying one assist. A skilled passer, O'Reilly had just 1 shot on goal in his last four games.
With the return of Arron Asham last weekend, the Penguins feel their best lineup is a gritty lineup which sent O'Reilly to the press box.
