PITTSBURGH - Zach Sill was re-assigned to Wilkes-Barre/Scranton of the American Hockey League on Thursday.

Sill, a native of Birch Hill, near Brookfield, played in 20 NHL games this season with the Pittsburgh Penguins.

Sill, six-foot-two, 197 pounds, was averaging 10:48 minutes of ice time. He had no points and 12 penalty minutes.
