By: KDKA-TV News Staff

PITTSBURGH (KDKA) - The Penguins' roster is getting back forwards Bryan Rust and Jason Zucker.

Rust was activated from the COVID-19 protocol list and Zucker from long-term injured reserve, general manager Ron Hextall announced Monday.

Zucker has been out since the beginning of January and missed the Pens' last seven games. Rust was added to COVID-19 protocol after testing positive on Jan. 8.

With the roster moves, forwards Kasper Bjorkqvist and Radim Zohorna were assigned to the taxi squad and defenseman Juuso Riikola was reassigned to the Wilkes-Barre/Scranton Penguins.

The Penguins will bring a six-game road trip to a close Monday against the Vegas Golden Knights.
