The Pittsburgh Penguins made several roster moves a few hours before their game against Ottawa at PPG Paints Arena this evening.

They activated defenseman Jeff Petry from the Long-Term Injured list and goalie Tristan Jarry from injured reserve, and returned goaltender Dustin Tokarski and defenseman Taylor Fedun to their farm team in Wilkes-Barre.

Those moves suggest that Jarry and Petry will play against the Senators, although coach Mike Sullivan said earlier in the day that both will be game-time decisions.

Also, Kris Letang was placed on the Long-Term Injured list, retroactive to Dec. 28, and Jan Rutta was placed on injured-reserve.

Players on the LTI list must sit out at least 10 games and 24 days. but because tonight’s game will be Letang’s 10th, he will be eligible to be activated for the Penguins’ game at New Jersey Sunday afternoon.

Jarry suffered an unspecified lower-body injury during the first period of the Pittsburgh Penguins’ 2-1 loss to Boston in Winter Classic at Fenway Park Jan. 2. He is 15-5-4, with a 2.75 goals-against average and .918 save percentage.

Petry, 35, has three goals and nine assists in 28 games.
