Just when Colin McDonald thought he would get a few days off like the rest of his teammates in Wilkes-Barre, he gets the nod to the NHL to join Pittsburgh when they host the Toronto Maple Leafs tonight.
McDonald got on the score sheet in the AHL All Star Game last night, recording an assist in the 8-7 shootout loss the the Western Conference. Now he gets a chance to prove himself at the NHL level again after getting a two game stint with the Pittsburgh Penguins earlier this season.
With McDonald getting the recall to Pittsburgh, expect Nick Petersen to rejoin the WBS Penguins, after Wheeling plays Elmira tomorrow night.
WBS is off until Friday, so the next update might come after practice on Thursday if no other news breaks like the statement from Pittsburgh on the status of Sidney Crosby.
