Jagr is a one-of-a-kind player and he deserves an NHL contract- but will he fit again with the Penguins? [Pens Labyrinth]
Penguins Looking to Prospects
Training camp is right around the corner and, while some might think the Pens need more moves, the Penguins are looking to their prospects. Between Zach Aston-Reese and Daniel Sprong, the Penguins are looking to their prospects to see what they can bring to the table. It wouldn’t be surprising to see one of these prospects crack the team’s NHL roster as the season approaches. The Penguins have a lot of reliable prospect talent and aren’t afraid to bring a new rookie into the mix; therefore, the Pens will be examining their prospect talent heavily during camp.
