From the Point Too
Entries with the tag: training camp
I will be back shortly with some thoughts on the moves, but the team has shipped out 13 players to their Wilkes Barre-Scranton Affiliate and or their respective junior teams. Amongst the cuts is former first round pick Simon Despres, who hasn’t had an overly impressive training camp. The moves leave 42 players on the training camp roster.
The official release from the team is below…
Though the Penguins put in a day of physicals, meetings and off-ice activities on Friday; today marked the first day of on ice activities.
The sessions were open to the public and there was plenty of fan support. Most were in the house to witness the return of Sidney Crosby and Evgeni Makin – both of which missed significant time last season with injuries. Crosby and Malkin did skate today and looked great in doing so, but more on that shortly.
I was in the house alongside a diverse group of media folk from around the league and Pittsburgh and wanted to throw a collection of news and notes at you.
