Pens make some cuts

The Pens' roster is down to 44. [ PG ]

Forwards Paul Thompson, Tom Kostopoulos, Brian Gibbons, Dominik Uher and defensemen Clark Seymour, Reid McNeill and Nick D'Agostino were assigned to the Penguins' American Hockey League affiliate in Wilkes-Barre.

The Pens did sign prospect Jean Sebastien Dea. Good write up on Dea from Highland Park Hockey.

After a development camp with the Montreal Canadiens earlier this summer, Dea came to the Pittsburgh Penguins annual camp two weeks later showing that he hadn't slowed down his offseason weight building routine that helped lead to his success a year prior. Not being drafted only motivated Dea even more to prove people wrong about his size.

"I gained almost 20 pounds during [this past] summer," Dea said. "I got bigger and stronger and I just want to prove to all the teams that they made a mistake at the draft."
