Restocking the Baby Pens

This afternoon your Pittsburgh Penguins trimmed down the roster down to 29 players and restocked the Baby Pens at the same time. Wilkes-Barre/Scranton received soon to be fan favorites Nick Johnson, Eric Tangradi, and Luca Cuputi. Also Fowards Wade Brookbank, Konstantin Pushkarev, Wyatt Smith, Joe Vitale, Tim Wallace were sent down. Defensemen Robert Bortuzzo, Jonathan D’Aversa, Chris Lee and goaltender Brad Thiessen joined the club.

The best part of a returning Stanley Cup Champion team loaded with talent is that young up and coming superstars like Tangradi, Johnson and Cuputi get lots of experience in the minors. While these players will start with the Baby Pens, you will most certainly see them with the big boys during the tough NHL schedule.

Another roster move announced by the Penguins sent 2009 first round pick Simon Despres Quebec Major Junior Hockey League.
