Bozak signs with the Leafs
The Toronto Maple Leafs won the Tyler Bozak sweepstakes as the talented forward agreed to a two year contract worth close to $1.8 million.
The Penguins were informed late Wednesday night that Bozak would be signing elsewhere.
The Penguins remain in contact with a few other college prospects but they are not believed to be pursuing former Hobey Baker award winner Ryan Duncan.
Ruslan Fedotenko Update
The Penguins practiced this morning at SouthPointe and they will depart to Carolina this afternoon.
Forward Ruslan Fedotenko
(Shoulder) was evaluated this morning by Dr. Charles Burke
and it appears he is going to be fine. There is no structural damage in his shoulder but he continues to have some discomfort. This is something that will likely bother him the rest of the season but he should be able to play through it according to sources.
Fedotenko will make the trip to Carolina and will be a game time decision.
No Changes on the blueline against Carolina
Philippe Boucher will have to keep waiting as the Penguins will not make any changes on their blueline for tomorrow night’s game against Carolina. Boucher was the seventh defenseman in practice but does get to work with the second power play on a regular basis. The vibe around the locker room is Boucher may get in the lineup against Tampa Bay.
Fleury to start both weekend games
Marc Andre Fleury will start both weekend games against Carolina and Florida. Interim coach Dan Bylsma remains non-committal whether Garon will start on Tuesday against the Lightning. The team wants to get Garon another start but it is difficult when your fighting for playoff position.
