Penguins call up Zach Aston-Reese, Garrett Wilson

Chaz Palla | Tribune-Review
The Penguins’ Garrett Wilson beats Blue Jackets goaltender Jean-Francois Berube in the third period Saturday, Sept. 22, 2018 at PPG Paints Arena.

In addition to shaking up their line combinations and power-play personnel, the Pittsburgh Penguins made some roster moves Tuesday, calling up wingers Zach Aston-Reese and Garrett Wilson from Wilkes-Barre/Scranton of the AHL and sending down center Derek Grant.

Aston-Reese, one of the organization’s top forward prospects, has six goals and nine points in 11 AHL games this season, including a hat trick in an 8-5 loss to Bridgeport on Sunday. Last year, he had four goals in 16 NHL games.

Wilson, 27, is Wilkes-Barre/Scranton’s captain and leading scorer. A physical forward, he has six goals and 11 points in 11 games this season. He has 34 games of NHL experience with the Florida Panthers.

Grant has no points in six games for the Penguins this season.

Follow the Pittsburgh Penguins all season long.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
