KOBASEW OFFICIALLY SIGNS WITH PENGUINS
Chuck Kobasew had to wait for the Penguins to get their cap situation straight and today put ink to the paper, agreeing to a one year deal worth $550,000.
Kobasew who joined camp on a PTO, made a strong impression on the coaching staff and is expected to start the year on the third line with Brandon Sutter.
The Penguins this morning made a few other roster moves:
Beau Bennett has been recalled from Wheeling in the least surprising news of the day…….Chris Conner and Harrison Ruopp have been re-assigned to Wilkes Barre/Scranton…….Matt D’Agostini has been placed on IR.
