Shot in the arm? Penguins call up Megna


The Pittsburgh Penguins grabbed a point on Friday, but they admitted that they didn’t look very sharp against the New York Islanders. Perhaps calling up Jayson Megna might give them a boost in tonight’s rematch, then?

It’s unclear if another Penguins forward is sidelined (beyond Pascal Dupuis), as the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette’s Dave Molinari notes. Even if everyone else is healthy, it might make sense to give Megna a look, as he’s been on a hot streak this month:

The 24-year-old appeared in 36 games with the Penguins last season, scoring five goals and nine points.

The Hockey News describes him as “an energy forward with a little upside,” which might be just what the Penguins need for a better showing tonight.
