  • Penguins' Johnny Gruden: Recalled from minors

    Gruden was elevated from AHL Wilkes-Barre/Scranton on Thursday.

  • Penguins' Johnny Gruden: Back in AHL

    Gruden was returned to AHL Wilkes-Barre Scranton on Monday, per Seth Rorabaugh of Tribune-Review Sports.

    Gruden, who has been in the lineup since Dec. 8 against Florida, hasn't picked up a point in four outings with Pittsburgh this season. The Penguins also sent down Marc Johnstone, which could lead to the returns of Noel Acciari (lower body) and Rickard Rakell (upper body) ahead of Monday's contest against Minnesota.

  • Penguins' Johnny Gruden: Dealing with undisclosed injury

    Gruden is currently day-to-day after suffering an undisclosed injury, Seth Rorabaugh of TribLive.com reports Monday.

    Gruden was a long shot to make the 23-man roster even without suffering an injury but now is all but guaranteed to be shipped down to the minors once given the green light to play. Without a clear path to NHL minutes, the 22-year-old winger shouldn't be expected to offer much in the way of fantasy value.
