Blandisi scored a goal on two shots in Saturday's 7-4 win over the Wild.
Blandisi capped off a three-goal stretch in 2:28 for the Penguins with his first tally of the year. It would ultimately count as the game-winner. Blandisi didn't register a point in nine games at the NHL level between the Penguins and Ducks last year, but he had 17 goals and 26 helpers in 53 games with the Ducks' AHL affiliate. Expect the 25-year-old to remain in a fourth-line role while up with the big club.
The Penguins recalled Blandisi from AHL Wilkes-Barre/Scranton on Friday.
Pittsburgh is currently dealing with a ton of injuries up front, so Blandisi will likely slot into the lineup right away Saturday against Minnesota. The 25-year-old racked up 43 points in 54 AHL appearances last season.
