That did not take long. One local hockey star is heading back to Pittsburgh.
The Pittsburgh Penguins announced the team is once again calling up Hollidaysburg native Sam Lafferty Tuesday.
Lafferty just took a trip back down to the minor leagues last week. He was assigned to the Wilkes Barre-Scranton Penguins for the last five days.
He played in 10 games for Pittsburgh after being called up on Oct. 8. He scored his first NHL goal on Oct. 12.
