At this time, sticking to the narrative is best for Sprong. Leave him in the AHL until black aces/taxi squad time. Ice-time and coaching in Wilkes-Barre will be far more valuable to him than being forward 13-14 in Pittsburgh.

By comparing to other call-ups: ZAR, Simon and Blueger are 23, Dea is 24. Of the forwards that started the season, Guentzel is 23, Rust and Sheary 25, the rest is older. Sprong is 20.

If you call him up now, it either shows: (A) you're VERY sure of Sprong --- or (B) are VERY convinced he's not worth it investing the time developing him --- and you just plug him in somewhere as injuries dictate.

I don't think either applies. Lo and behold, we traded for a guy with roughly two full seasons of NHL time. Guy's a fourth line/AHL type if I read right. Not a miracle worker, but useful. UFA after the season ends too. Logical call-up decision.

Josh Jooris sent down to Wilkes-Barre as Rust is returning to the lineup. Jooris scored no points as the 4th line center, having played only 2 games, remained at +/- 0. He won 4 of his 10 faceoffs, averaging just over 7 minutes of ice time.

You'd rather have a Rowney instead? One with zero skill that does nothing?

Looks like Josh Jooris was recalled on Sunday according to this link. Who is hurt now?

Yeah it was announced earlier today that Murray would be an "option" tomorrow vs the Isles.
