Pens Make A Pair of Trades


Earlier Today, it was announced that the Penguins traded forward Benn Ferriero to the New York Rangers for forward Chad Kolarik – according to the team’s website.

And in another transaction, it was reported that the Pens shipped defenseman Carl Sneep to the Dallas Stars for a conditional draft pick – per their team site.

Kolarik has been one of the AHL’s best performers this season.  Scoring 35 points (16 G, 19A) in 41 contests with the Connecticut Whale, the 26-year-old Kolarik will now suit up with the Wilkes-Barre/Scranton Penguins.

Ferriero, 25, wasn’t having as good a season as Kolarik.  Posting just 18 points (4 G, 14 A) in 34 games, Ferriero will now look to turn his season around with the Rangers AHL affiliate.

Sneep, 25, really didn’t play for the WBS Pens this year.  Appearing in just one game, Sneep will now move on.

Both these moves are coming just a day after the organization gave ex-Penguin defenseman Mark Eaton a PTO contract with their minor league club.

Stay tuned for more Penguins updates.
