Chirps from Center Ice

A fan blog about the AHL's Wilkes-Barre / Scranton Penguins

All Present

Every AHL East Division team or their NHL parent has had news since the last time I blogged.

Pittsburgh announced the re-signings of Paul Thompson and Zach Sill to one year deals. Good to have both in the mix for next season.

Pittsburgh also announced today the signing of Matt D’Agostini, a right winger with NHL experience who will likely provide third / fourth line depth for Pittsburgh and will probably never be seen in Wilkes-Barre. To that end, while I have updated the 2013 Offseason Moves List to reflect the Sill / Thompson moves. I did not note the D’Agostini signing.

Here’s a nice story from the Wheeling Nailers on Bobby Farnham’s NHL contract.

Norfolk has some news. First, they hired ECHL Coach of the Year Jarrod Skalde from the Cincinnati Cyclones as an assistant coach. Second, Anaheim signed Alex Grant, who was traded there from Pittsburgh. Finally, the Zack Stortini and Nolan Yonkman news is finally official.

Ottawa re-signed Binghamton captain Mark Borowiecki Tuesday. Borowiecki is probably graduated to Ottawa this Fall though. They also re-signed David Dziurzynski.

Syracuse signed Evan Rankin to an AHL deal today. Rankin was with Rochester last year.

Washington re-signed Peter LeBlanc, who led the Bears in playoff scoring, for another season.

Robert Bortuzzo filed for salary arbitration today. There’s another ex-WBS Penguin also on that list.

Brad Thiessen and Warren Peters are still unemployed.
