Malkin skates, but Penguins recall Blandisi … again

The Penguins have recalled forward Joseph Blandisi on an emergency basis, Jim Rutherford announced on Saturday.

Blandisi was last recalled by Pittsburgh on Thursday, then re-assigned back to the AHL on Friday. His transactions page for this season on CapFriendly tells quite a story:

Blandisi's recall may not mean that Evgeni Malkin is out of the lineup tonight against the Kings at PPG Paints Arena. The Penguins didn't skate this morning, but Malkin skated this morning on his own with Juuso Riikola. We'll likely get an update on Malkin when Mike Sullivan speaks at 5 p.
