Joseph Blandisi. -- MATT SUNDAY / DKPS

Penguins forward Joseph Blandisi cleared waivers on noon at Tuesday.

Blandisi was not assigned to Wilkes-Barre/Scranton, though, and participated in the Penguins' practice at the Lemieux Complex at 11 a.m. With Patric Hornqvist now out "longer term" with a lower-body injury and Zach Aston-Reese missing practice with an illness, Blandisi centered the fourth line alongside Mark Recchi and Sam Lafferty.

The Penguins don't have to re-assign Blandisi to Wilkes-Barre, but him clearing waivers resets the games-played and days on the roster counters that determine his waiver status. He won't require waivers again until he reaches 10 games played or 30 days, whichever comes first.
