Pens Acquire Kristo for McNeill

Saturday at around noon, the Wilkes-Barre / Scranton Penguins announced that the Pittsburgh Penguins have acquired Forward Danny Kristo for Reid McNeill. 

This is a big deal. 

The first place Penguins add more offense to a team which is loaded in goal and stacked on the blue line. 

Kristo played with Carter Rowney at the University of North Dakota and also won a gold medal with Dave Warsofsky in 2010 at the World Juniors. 

It’s not clear whether Kristo will be able to join the Penguins tonight in Hershey, but if not, then definitely when the Penguins and Bears rematch in Chocolatetown this Wednesday before Thanksgiving. 

Game day setup for tonight’s matchup with the Bears will hit the blog at 3 p.m.
