Two goalies to get their chance with the Penguins' organization.

The Pittsburgh Penguins are dealing with a tricky situation as both Matt Murray and Michael Leighton have succumbed to injury and are listed as day-to-day. 

Tristan Jarry and Casey DeSmith will once again form the team's tandem in goal as they prepare to face off against the Carolina Hurricanes on Friday.

That has left the team's affiliate in Wilkes-Barre/Scranton without goalies, and so they've signed two goalies to professional tryout agreements in order to fill the gaps while Murray and Leighton heal up.

Peters has a 10-4-1 record for the Buffalo Sabres' ECHL affiliate in Cincinnati, while Morrison for his part has a subpar 2-7-0 record for the Wheeling Nailers - Pittsburgh's ECHL affiliate.

This will be Peters' second crack at playing with the Penguins' AHL affiliate. He went winless in 3 tries in his previous stint.
