According to the ECHL's daily transactions, defenseman Dan Henningson is on loan from the Chicago Express (ECHL) to the Wilkes-Barre Scranton Penguins.

Henningson, 27, had recorded a goal and three assists in 18 games with the Express this season before being loaned to the Penguins. Henningson captained the Wheeling Nailers, the Penguins ECHL affiliate, last season and recorded five goals and 13 assists in 68 games.

This was a required move after Deryk Engelland was banged up the against the Bruins. Alexandre Picard was called up to Pittsburgh to join Robert Bortuzzo and Simon Despres as a part of the NHL Penguins' top six, leaving Wilkes-Barre with only five healthy defenseman: Joey Mormina, Carl Sneep, Philip Samuelsson, Cody Wild and Alex Grant.

The Wilkes-Barre Scranton Penguins head to Binghamton for tomorrow night's game against the defending champion Senators.

Go Penguins!
