 PITTSBURGH (AP) -The Pittsburgh Penguins reacquired forward Kris Beech on a waiver claim Saturday, the fourth NHL team for Beech this month.
Beech, first picked up by the Penguins in the 2001 trade that sent Jaromir Jagr to Washington, was claimed on waivers from the Capitals. Beech began the season with the Blue Jackets' Syracuse farm club before being called up by Columbus, getting four goals and five assists in 16 games before being waived.
Beech was claimed by Vancouver on Jan. 10, only to be waived again Tuesday. He was claimed again by Washington, but did not play any games with the Capitals, who were attempting to send him to their Hershey farm club.
Beech, who turns 27 next month, had one goal and one assist in four games with Vancouver.
The 6-foot-2, 209-pound Beech was the No. 7 overall pick by Washington in 1999, but has not lived up to his potential. He scored 10 goals in 95 games with Pittsburgh from 2001-04 and has 25 goals and 42 assists in 193 career NHL games.
The Penguins are short on forwards with Sidney Crosby (high ankle sprain), Gary Roberts (broken leg) and Tyler Kennedy (mononucleosis) currently sidelined.
