Pens announce roster for Quebec City game

New, comments

The Pittsburgh Penguins get to play Monday night in the new Quebec arena. They're bringing along several French-Canadian players for the opportunity.

The Penguins play 3 games in the next 3 days (Mon-Tue-Wed), which probably explains why their training camp still has so many players left in it. Monday's game is somewhat of a gimmick game, at the arena in Quebec City against the Montreal Canadiens.

According to a Pens email, here's the team that they'll be bringing:

Forwards (13): Pascal Dupuis, Nick Bonino, Bryan Rust, Beau Bennett, Scott Wilson, Matia Marcantuoni, Jean-Sebastien Dea, Oskar Sundqvist, Daniel Sprong, Tyler Biggs, Domink Uher, Dominik Simon, David Perron

Defensemen (7): Rob Scuderi, David Warofsky, Reid McNeill, Tim Erixon, Derrick Pouliot, Sergei Gonchar, Kris Letang

Goalies (2): Marc-Andre Fleury, Tristan Jarry

It's really cool that the Pens are sending up all their French Canadian players for the unique opportunity to play in Quebec City. (Well, until they get an expansion or relocated franchise soon, anyways). Still, a nice little touch by the team to get anyone with Quebec ties from Sprong to Dea up to the stars like Letang and Fleury to have a chance to play in a cool venue, near to home.

They'll have to scratch a forward and defenseman for the lineup, so we'll see what the lines and team looks like. It looks like the Pens are set to bring several big guns like Sidney Crosby, Evgeni Malkin and Phil Kessel to Johnstown on Tuesday night for the special game at the War Memorial in honor of the renovations made recently there.
