Penguins' Juuso Riikola: Dropped to taxi squad

Riikola was reassigned to the taxi squad Monday. Riikola hasn't played in a game since Jan. 19 versus Washington, in which he logged 8:20 of ice time.

Penguins' Juuso Riikola: Lifted from LTIR

Riikola (upper body) was activated from long-term injured reserve Tuesday. The 27-year-old has missed the past 20 games. Riikola served as a healthy scratch before this injury, so he's not guaranteed to enter the lineup for Tuesday's matchup against the Rangers. Nevertheless, Riikola has been skating in a regular jersey for more than two weeks, so he'll be ready when called upon. Over 36 games last year, Riikola provided seven points and 74 hits.

Penguins' Juuso Riikola: Dons non-contract jersey

Riikola (upper body) was on the ice for Friday's practice session sporting a non-contact sweater, Mike DeFabo of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports. Riikola continues to make strides in his recovery, but the fact he hasn't been cleared for contact yet makes it highly unlikely he'll be available against the Islanders on Saturday. Even once cleared to play, the Finnish blueliner is unlikely to crack the lineup over Cody Ceci and Pierre-Olivier Joseph.
