Pens Re-Sign Patrick McGrath 8/9

In keeping with keeping their name in the news cycle during the middle of August, there was more news out of Coal Street Tuesday.

They re-signed Forward Patrick McGrath.

McGrath is a Shavertown native known more for his fists than anything else. With the AHL cracking down on staged fights and fighting in general, the McGrath signing adds toughness to the Penguins lineup.

If you are expecting a big splash name in AHL free agency this week with this parade of news so far from the Penguins, prepare yourself to be underwhelmed….

We’ll see. We aren’t even at Wednesday yet. The 2016 Offseason Moves List has already been updated.

Stay tuned.

    Let’s hope injuries don’t leave any of the organization’s teams limping this season.
