PITTSBURGH (AP) - Longtime NHL forward Miroslav Satan (MEER’-oh-slahv shah-TAN’) has cleared waivers and been recalled by Pittsburgh as the Penguins end the regular season and head to the playoffs.

The move was announced Friday.

Satan had 17 goals and 19 assists in 65 games with Pittsburgh before being sent to Wilkes-Barre/Scranton of the AHL in a salary cap move at the March 4 trading deadline.

Satan was demoted after Pittsburgh picked up forwards Bill Guerin, Chris Kunitz and Craig Adams before the deadline.

At Wilkes-Barre, Satan had three goals and six assists in 10 games.

He rejoins the Penguins in time for Saturday’s regular-season finale at Montreal and the start of the playoffs next week. He has 15 goals and 23 assists in 56 career playoff games.
