Cornell grad Nick D’Agostino has listened, learned and now is about to begin his professional career. [Post-Gazette]
Some prospect observations by Baby Pens writer Jonathan Bombulie [Penguins Insider].
Our favorite passage:
– I thought Brian Dumoulin was maybe the best player on the ice in the scrimmage. He uses his reach so effectively and is an excellent passer. If he develops some snarl, he’ll be in the NHL for good.
Friend of Pensburgh Netwolf from Let’s Go Pens always has great camp write-ups, be sure to check out his scrimmage recap. [LGP]
With this passage:
Let's go back to Maatta for a minute. The poise this kid has at 18 is unbelievable. No matter how much pressure he was under, he seemed to make the right play whether it was a chip off the wall, a pass, or simply skating out of trouble. As I mentioned earlier in the week, he isn't a speedster, but has decent wheels. Other facets of his skating are exemplary; quick feet, very agile, looks almost effortless. He probably could handle limited NHL minutes, but given the Penguins' depth chart and how they have a history of not rushing guys, he's almost assuredly heading back to London this fall.
