The Penguins today recalled center Maxime Talbot from their American Hockey League affiliate, Wilkes-Barre/Scranton.
The Penguins will be without center/winger Ryan Malone for several weeks because of a broken arm.
Talbot, 22, leads Wilkes-Barre/Scranton with four goals in five games and leads the team with three game-winning goals, the game-winners coming in Wilkes-Barre's last three games. Talbot also has posted a plus-1 rating with two penalty minutes.
The 5-foot-11, 190-pound native of Lemoyne, Quebec, appeared in 48 games with Pittsburgh last season, recording five goals and eight points, with 59 penalty minutes.
