The Wilkes-Barre / Scranton Penguins announced this afternoon that they have re-signed Tom Kostopoulos for another season. It’s an AHL deal, just like this past season.
Kostopoulos hasn’t lost a step yet and it’s clear that the fire still burns and that he is dedicated to the Penguins. He could have retired but didn’t.
Hopefully this is just the first step in what will be a great offseason of news for the Penguins.
While I have you here, some other news to clean up.
– The AHL All-Star Classic will be held in Syracuse next season. Tickets on sale already. Details here.
– Hershey re-signed Dustin Gazley and Erik Burgdoerfer to AHL deals a few weeks ago.
– The Flyers added Aaron Palushaj last week. Palushaj spent last season in Russia’s KHL. He’s seen more AHL than NHL over here, so it’s possible that he ends up back in the AHL in the
East Division Atlantic Division at some point with Lehigh Valley.
That’s about it. I updated the 2015 Offseason Moves List.
