Sykora and other stuff.

We don’t break news, but good for Petr.

$1.6m for 1-year.

The Penguins had $1.8m in cap space. It just wasn’t in the cards.

Also…the Pens cut 10 players.

Aaron Boogaard
Nicholas Petersen
Casey Pierro-Zabotel
Kevin Veilleux

Lane Caffaro
Alex Grant
Brian Strait

Jordan Parise
No real surprises.

  • Boogaard is a much smaller version of his brother,
    even at 6’3 220. He played in Wilkes-Barre last year.
  • Who is Nicholas Petersen?
  • Veilleux is still pretty raw. He’s big, plays all 3 forward positions, and he’s got a scoring touch…let him develop.
  • CPZ is an over-age player who excelled in a weak league with good teammates(Evander Kane). He’s overrated, but he’ll crack the NHL someday.
  • Despite hearing good things about Alex Grant…not this year.
    He apparently has an NHL-caliber shot, but not much else.
  • Strait looks promising too. Someday.
  • Who is Lane Caffaro?
  • Did you know Jordan Parise has a brother? Even if he’s good, it’s too soon for more brother talk.
Don't click read more...there isn't any.

Lane Caffaro is a Canadian out of Union College ecac.. hes a gamer with mad defensive skills, moves the puck and will get a few Ginos on the PP... In other words hes another Canadian Beauty.

Thanks Randall38.

I saw a YouTube video of him scoring, as you described, a geno. Any idea what he's up to? He's not listed on the Pens' website as being "in the system"
