Pesonen and Minard Called Up

It's been confirmed by Savran on Sportsbeat that Zigomanis will not be in the lineup in tonight's game and that Kennedy has flown back to Pittsburgh to be checked out (word is it's a leg and TIOPS reporting an ankle); both Minard and Pesonen will play tonight against the Canes!

TIOPS is reporting that sources have said that Zigomanis is now OUT for tonight's game (no longer probable) and should play on Saturday; Kennedy suffered an ankle injury.

[UPDATE] From the Pittsburgh Penguins webpage:

Forwards Tyler Kennedy and Mike Zigomanis left Wednesday's game at New York with undisclosed injuries. Kennedy will not be in the lineup tonight for Pittsburgh's matchup against the Carolina Hurricanes. Zigomanis' playing status is currently listed as probable.
I guess that answers any questions!

The Penguins announced that they've recalled both Janne Pesonen and Chris Minard from the AHL Baby Pens today to fill in spots left in the lineup made by injuries suffered by both Tyler Kennedy and Mike Zigomanis in last night's game against the New York Rangers.

However, nothing further has been mentioned about these injuries or whether or not they will indeed be out of tonight's lineup against the Carolina Hurricanes.

But it's looking more likely they won't be playing. Anything further and I will be sure to update the blog.

You beat me to it, I was just about to comment on your last entry that these guys had been called up and that it looks like Ziggy and TK will not be playing! Fingers crossed they wont be out for long.

Agreed Gilld,

The pens will miss them both. They bring a lot of energy.

Not to mention a 60+ percentage on face-offs wins for Ziggy (that's high)!!
