- Penguins Prospect Camp is coming up, starting on July 20th and running through the 26th. PensUniverse will be there to give you updates on the action.
- Chris Minard signed a contract with the Edmonton Oilers yesterday. Terms of the contract were not disclosed. Signed by the Penguins on July 12th of 2007, the 27-year-old center played in 20 games for the Penguins last season and registered a goal and two assists. He played the rest of the season in Wilkes-Barre, where he had team-high 34 goals to go along with 23 assists. After averaging almost a point per game in his two seasons with the Baby Pens, we hope that he is able to succeed in garnering significant playing time with the Oilers. With the influx of young talent to the Penguins, it was clear that his opportunities were going to be limited in Pittsburgh. Good luck Chris!
