- Head coach John Hynes confirmed on Monday that some Wilkes-Barre/Scranton players will head to Pittsburgh after tonight‚??s game in Norfolk to participate in Wednesday‚??s Black and Gold scrimmage with the NHL club. Hynes said Pittsburgh management will be at the Norfolk game to select some players to play in the scrimmage. ‚??I think it‚??s great for the players. They get an opportunity to go up there, get some exposure and be around the locker room. To be on that stage is good for them,‚?Ě Hynes said.
- Hynes didn‚??t know if the suspension of Keven Veilleux in Wheeling means that he won‚??t be able to play in Wilkes-Barre if recalled. On Sunday Veilleux was suspended indefinitely after alleging directing a racial slur toward an opponent. ‚??We haven‚??t talked about it yet. I probably won‚??t be too involved in that,‚?Ě Hynes said, adding that upper management will likely make the call.
- On the injury front, Benn Ferriero practiced on Monday and is questionable for tonight‚??s game. Recent call-up Paul Crowder has been wearing the 14 worn by Tom Kuhnhackl this season. Hynes said Kuhnhackl, who has been out with a shoulder injury, had surgery and is done for the season.
