Draft Recap 6/27

The Pittsburgh Penguins didn’t have a selection in the first round of the NHL Draft of Friday, but they had four picks on Day 2. Let’s take a look…

I’m lucky that I am able to keep up with the happenings in Wilkes-Barre and the AHL as a whole. NHL Draft Prospects isn’t my cup of tea, but there is a cadre of folk with knowledge, so here they are…

There is a local connection too.

Here is his draft profile page with a bit more on him from Pittsburgh and some highlights that Coal Street tweeted out:

Also, a clarification and an update. First, Bobby Farnham is a restricted free agent. It was discovered by Jonathan Bombulie yesterday that due to his NHL service time, Farnham is actually a restricted free agent, it’s in the link at 5:58. I have updated the Offseason Moves List accordingly.

Finally, if you thought that the AHL Free Agent Big Board was going to go away when Jonathan took off for Pittsburgh, think again. I spearheaded an effort with other AHL bloggers to bring it back. I have been in contact with Mike Cignoli from the Citizens Voice about putting the big board up on the Penguins Insider blog and that is where it will most likely end up. If not, we have a Plan B in place to place the Big Board either here or mirrored on this blog and the other blogs where the contributions were made. Keep an eye out for this coming either late Monday or Tuesday.
