News: The Penguins assigned Ebbett to AHL Wilkes-Barre/Scranton on Tuesday.
Impact: In a corresponding move, the team recalled defenseman Derrick Pouliot, with Ebbett's demotion possibly a positive indicator with regard to the progress of injured forwards Evgeni Malkin and/or Patric Hornqvist, per the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette.

News: Ebbett was recalled by the Penguins on Saturday, Jason Mackey of the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review reports.
Impact: Ebbett has already played in 21 games for Pittsburgh this year, accruing a goal and five assists. While it would be surprising if he saw significant ice time during this stint with the Penguins, he could have a shot at entering the lineup Sunday against the Red Wings. Both of the team's top two centers, Sidney Crosby and Evgeni Malkin, are dealing with an illness and injury, respectively, and aren't certain to be available.
