Schnell, Chupp Back to Wilkes-Barre

Thursday, February 2, 2012
Just as the WBS Penguins were getting on the ice for practice this morning, the announcement came from the Wheeling Nailers that Ryan Schnell and Cody Chupp are on their way back up to the AHL. I'm not at practice so I'm not sure if those two were already in Wilkes-Barre but they will definitely be available for tomorrow night's game at home against the Hershey Bears.

Interesting move considering the NHL Penguins claimed forward Cal O'Reilly off re-entry waivers yesterday. I figured Colin McDonald would be on his way down, which might be announced soon, giving the AHL Penguins an extra forward.

As it stands right now (McDonald not included), the WBS Penguins have 14 healthy forwards, unless Brandon DeFazio is still banged up from a hard hit he took in Connecticut last Friday. Time will tell. Stay tuned!
