Pesonen and Minard Returned to AHL's Wilkes-Barre Scranton

Janne Pesonen and Chris Minard have both been returned to the WBS Penguins.

Likely that means the Big Penguins recent injury troubles are over and Dupuis and Fedetenko will be back.  Minard played two games in the NHL while Pesonen played one.

It's good that the team seems to have a few AHL guys with NHL experience that can be called up and slip into the lineup seemlessly when need be.

From what I've heard Minard, Pesonen and Jeff Taffe form quite a formidable line in the AHL, so hopefully their success will return when they're reunited in Wilkes-Barre.  Minard is the baby Penguins leading scorer with 13 points, Taffe is second with 11 and Pesonen is third with 9.

The baby Pens play today in Houston while the big Pens play their next game Thursday night against Edmonton.
