Notebook: Penguins Demote 10, Trim Roster to 30


Rossi, Rob, Tribune-Review/Pittsburgh Tribune-Review


The odds to earn a roster spot did not favor center Tyler Kennedy entering training camp, so it came as no surprise he was among 10 players assigned to the Penguins' AHL affiliate in Wilkes-Barre/ Scranton on Saturday.

Joining Kennedy in Wilkes-Barre/Scranton were fellow forwards Nathan Smith, Connor James, Chris Minard, Jeff Taffe and Tim Wallace, defensemen Alex Goligoski, Ryan Lannon and Ben Lovejoy, and goaltender Ty Conklin.

Angelo Esposito, the 20th overall pick in the 2007 entry draft, was re-assigned to his junior club, Quebec, in the QMJHL. Center Dustin Jeffrey, the 171st overall pick in 2007, was re-assigned to his junior club, Sault Ste. Marie of the OHL.

Of the 12 players trimmed from the Penguins' camp roster, Kennedy, 21, showed with his performance over the past few weeks that he is a prospect to watch.

"The bottom line for Tyler is that he is a young player in terms of experience. He only has (40) games of professional experience under his belt," assistant general manager Chuck Fletcher said. "It's time for him to get down to (Wilkes-Barre/Scranton) and get going."

Fletcher praised Kennedy's combination of energy, effort and tenacity -- all of which were on display during camp. Those are traits Penguins officials hope will serve Kennedy well as he takes on an expanded role with the AHL Penguins.

"He is going to get a big opportunity to be one of the go-to guys in (Wilkes-Barre/Scranton)," Fletcher said.
