The Pittsburgh Penguins, with a game tonight in Chicago, have recalled defenseman Derrick Pouliot from the AHL.
No word why the move was made, but it’s worth noting that teams are limited to four recalls post-trade deadline, which is today at 3 p.m. ET. Called up this morning, Pouliot would not count as one of those four recalls.
Pouliot, 23, has only played seven NHL games this season, with no points registered.
