PENGUINS FORWARD DEPTH CHART
Asking around on Matt D’Agostini in the past hour and early word I’m getting is the Penguins feel he will battle for a third line spot and one team source called him a leading candidate right now for one of the third line winger spots.
What I’m told the Penguins like about D’Agostini is the speed he brings to the table and while he’s not physical by any means, one scout said he can get to loose pucks quickly.
Following the D’Agostini signing, here’s my updated Penguins forward depth chart:
