Penguins waive Arcobello

Well, that was fast.

Less than a month after claiming him, Pittsburgh has put Mark Arcobello on waivers, per ESPN.

Arcobello, 26, joined the Pens in mid-January after getting waived by Nashville and appeared in 10 games for Pittsburgh, scoring two points while averaging 12:05 TOI per night.

The diminutive center played just 10:01 in Saturday’s 5-0 blowout loss to Vancouver, though, recording one shot on goal.

It’s likely that Arcobello was waived because various Pens forwards are getting healthy. Beau Bennett could return for Wednesday’s tilt against Detroit, as could Blake Comeau.
