Penguins form taxi squad as Ottawa game is postponed in busy day

Quite a bit of news and notes around the Penguins on Tuesday, let’s jump right in and get all caught up and sorted out. First, the Penguins have established a taxi squad for short-term boosts to help them fill out a full roster after six players entered COVID protocol earlier. The only thing particularly surprising is that early reports from the media about the taxi squad indicated that waiver non-eligible players (like Joseph and Bjorkqvist) couldn’t be on it, yet the Pens did it, so they must.
