Report:  Penguins Recall Defenseman Prospect Joe Morrow

Too soon to make too much out of this.  Could very well be simply that Kris Letang's "lower body" (read: groin) injury is worse than originally anticipated.  Matt Niskanen has been skating the past couple of days, but may not be ready to return to the lineup soon.

Sucks that it’s coming because Letang’s injury is worse than expected…but this is the start of seeing how some of these guys are going to pan out. 

Kind of exciting…

I don’t think I’d say at this point his injury is worse.  They put Letang on IR retroactively, it may just be an audition for Morrow for a few games….

There are numerous reports that Morrow needs some work on his defense, so we’ll just see….

Oh, I didn’t catch the “retroactively” part.

Still, it’s exciting to see that some of these guys are getting close to being “ready.”
