Letang and his hair were activated today. [ Pens ]
This left the Pens with 100 million players on their roster so they had to send someone down. That someone was Simon Despres.
He was choosen because he is the only one left other than Beau Bennett on a two way deal.
Our friends at PensionPlanPuppets sent this over. It is an FAQ on waivers. Despres is exempt from waivers due to experience. Two-way deal has nothing to do with waivers.
Good news, though. Yhe roster expands April 3, so he'll be back. He could be back even sooner if the Pens make a deal to clean up some roster space.
