He promptly was assigned to the Penguins’ American Hockey League affiliate in Wilkes-Barre.

Shea does not have a goal or assist in 22 games with the Penguins this season, but has been assessed three minor penalties.
Zohorna, 27, has four goals, three assists and 16 penalty minutes in 31 NHL games this season.
