Pittsburgh Penguins will not re-sign Mike Zigomanis

New, comments

News of the recent re-signing of Craig Adams had more than a few Pensburghers assuming that Mike Zigomanis was a goner.  Turns out we were right.  Dave Molinari of the Post-Gazette confirmed such today:

Zigomanis' agent, Kurt Overhardt, said this afternoon that "I think it's a fait accompli" that he will not have any additional discussions with the Penguins about them retaining his client.

In the grand scheme of things it doesn't hurt the Pens all that much.  While it may be hard to find a fourth-line center with Ziggy's faceoff skills, it's just as easy to promote from within via Wilkes-Barre Scranton or find a more durable and consistent fourth liner on the free agent wire.
