Dominik Uher had two goals and an assist on Wednesday to break a 13 game pointless streak in the AHL.

Uher was sent down to Wilkes-Barre/Scranton on December 30 after playing a couple of games with the Penguins and struggled since, even being a healthy scratch on two occasions. "His game went down a little bit in January," Baby Pens coach John Hynes said. "We talked about it. He had to readjust. He got scratched. I think he handled it the right way. His work ethic and intensity level in practice was good. There's a different hunger about him, too."

Dominik Uher has been called up by the Penguins from Wilkes-Barre and will be in lineup Monday.

It's been an interesting last few days for the 21-year-old Czech Republic native. He was called up on December 23rd, played in his first career NHL game, and then sent back down on the 24th. He has now been summoned by the Pens again on Monday and should be in the lineup Monday night where he will look for his first career NHL point.

Dominik Uher struggled during his first professional season in 2012-13.

The native of the Czech Republic came to North America in 2009 and played three seasons with Spokane of the WHL, getting drafted by the Penguins in the fifth round of the 2011 Draft. He had only four goals and seven points in 54 games with Wilkes-Barre/Scranton as he found the jump from the juniors to the AHL difficult. "The pro league is much harder," Uher said. "You play against actual men, not just junior kids. The speed and the physicality in that league was really different. I had some hard times, but I'm glad that season is behind me and now I know what I'm going to be in, and I'm really looking forward to the season." Uher projects to be a bottom six forward if he ever makes it in the NHL and should not be considered in drafts at any time in his career unless he lucks out and gets to play alongside Sidney Crosby or Evgeni Malkin.
