Minor league goalie misses NHL call-up after losing passport

MONTREAL (AP) — Pittsburgh Penguins minor league goalie Casey DeSmith missed a chance to join the NHL team in Montreal on Saturday because he lost his passport. The Penguins wanted to promote DeSmith from the AHL's Wilkes-Barre/Scranton for Saturday's game against the Canadiens while they let Tristan Jarry rest at home before hosting Florida on Sunday. Pittsburgh called on DeSmith, who has played 50 games for Pittsburgh over the past two seasons, but the 28-year-old couldn't find the paperwork to travel internationally.
