Penner Making The Adjustment

from Grant Kerr of the Globe and Mail,

Penner will turn 25 next week and has only one full NHL season under his belt. Last season, he played on Anaheim’s No. 2 line with Ryan Getzlaf and Corey Perry. Now, he’s a first-liner in Edmonton.

“I’m working every day to jell with the guys and get some chemistry going,” the 245-pound Penner said. “I need to use my body more effectively and pick up my speed and quickness.

“I love being back in Canada. I already know I have great teammates after being here three weeks. You get support from the fans, the organization and the city. You can feel the intensity [in Edmonton] already.”
