The Penguins’ Jean-Sebastien Dea scored one goal during his call-up.

With a couple of key forwards closing in on a return from injury, the Pittsburgh Penguins sent forward Jean-Sebastien Dea back to Wilkes-Barre/Scranton of the AHL on Tuesday.

Patric Hornqvist and Dominik Simon skated on their own before the Penguins held their morning skate Monday. Coach Mike Sullivan said Hornqvist, out with an upper-body injury, was “getting a lot closer” to a return.

Simon, out with a lower-body injury, is considered day-to-day.

The Penguins visit the Washington Capitals on Wednesday night.

Dea played three games after being called up Dec. 7 when Simon was placed on the injured list. He scored a goal Dec. 8 at Ottawa.

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using you agree to our Terms of Service.

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.
