Penguins demote Killeen - 10-08-10

Written by Seth Rorabaugh on .

The Patrick Killeen era in Pittsburgh has been put on hold.

The Penguins demoted the rookie goaltender back to Wheeling of the ECHL.

Killeen (above) was involved in an odd transaction in which he was summoned from Wheeling while forward Eric Tangradi was demoted Wednesday.

Killeen, 20, was a sixth-round pick in 2008.
