Report: Pens Sign Forward Jean-Sebastien Dea


The Pittsburgh Penguins and General Manager Ray Shero have reportedly signed forward Jean-Sebastien Dea, Tuesday, to a three-year entry-level contract – according to the team’s website.

Dea, 19, was signed by the Pens to a amateur tryout contract (ATO) this offseason after spending the past two seasons in the Quebec Major Junior Hockey League (QMJHL).

Playing for the Rouyn-Roranda Huskies in the QMJHL, Dea has compiled 117 points (62G, 55A) in 118 regular-season contests for the squad, while posting 24 points (13G, 11A) in 18 postseason games.

Just last season, Dea finished 11th in the league for scoring, where he posted an eye-popping 85 points (45G, 40A) in just 68 regular-season contests.

The 5-foot-11, 176-pound Dea participated for the Pens in the rookie tournament held in London, Ontario, earlier this month, and he led all prospects in scoring with three points (1G, 2A) in three contests.

Dea was reportedly re-assigned to Wilkes-Barre/Scranton.
