Megna is still looking to get into the lineup as he was recalled on Thursday. "I don't think I hit my ceiling. Obviously, [it's been] a lifelong goal of mine to play in the NHL. Now that I've played in the NHL all I want to do is stay in the NHL," Megna said. "I don't know if that's going to happen in this trip up or if I get another trip up, who knows? I'm just going to make the most of this one and try to do the best I can, stick for as long as I can. I want to prove that I can play in the NHL every day." Megna played 36 games with the Pens last season and had five goals and nine points.
