When Teddy Blueger was recalled by the parent Penguins on Feb. 9 and flew to Dallas, all signs pointed toward the Latvian center making his NHL debut.
Mike Sullivan told our site that day he liked what he had seen from Blueger:
Blueger was called up for 11 days, including the road trip to Dallas and St. Louis, then another to Columbus. But with Carter Rowney and Patric Hornqvist returning from injury, Blueger was sent back down to Wilkes-Barre/Scranton without getting a game.
Blueger told me this week that it was disappointing to not get a game in during his recall, but he was grateful for his time there and still had some takeaways from the stint.
