Minard, Curry re-assigned to Wilkes-Barre/Scranton

From the Penguins:

“The Pittsburgh Penguins have re-assigned goaltender John Curry and forward Chris Minard to the Wilkes-Barre/Scranton Penguins of the American Hockey League (AHL), it was announced today by Executive Vice President and General Manager Ray Shero.”  Also, defenseman Ben Lovejoy was re-assigned on Thursday.


This is an indication that Marc-Andre Fleury is ready to go after his undisclosed, but believed to be groin-related, injury.  Also, hopefully Minard’s re-assignment means that Mike Zigomanis is ready to come back, the Penguins’ faceoff percentage could use it.
