Matt D’Agostini compared to former Penguin

D'agostini Matt D’Agostini will be given every opportunity to win one of the winger spots on the Penguins third line in training camp. On Friday Penguins head coach Dan Bylsma compared D’Agostini to Tyler Kennedy. In terms of similarities to Tyler Kennedy, there are some,” head coach Dan Bylsma said of D’Agostini. “His skating ability, his shot, his ability to put the back in the net is all something evident in his play. He skates really well. May not be as a tenacious of a guy as TK but a guy who goes to the hard areas to score goals. Playing away from the puck for him is something we’ve talked about in terms of his role on team and in playing third line role, that’s something we’re going to have to see him do as well.”
