Kunitz a late scratch from the Pens’ lineup

Pittsburgh is without Chris Kunitz tonight as they play host to the New Jersey Devils.

Scott Wilson, who was recalled from the Wilkes-Barre/Scranton Penguins on Tuesday has taken Kunitz spot in the lineup and is skating alongside Brandon Sutter and Steve Downie to start tonight’s game.

Wilson, 22, has three goals and 12 points in 21 AHL games this season.

Originally seventh-round pick (209th overall) in 2011 by the Penguins, Wilson is making his NHL debut tonight.
