The Wilkes-Barre/Scranton Penguins signed Andrew Orpik to an AHL-only deal today. Like three minutes ago.
Brook Orpik’s little brother. 24 years old. Enter Sandman.
*Edit: Junior Mint and Andy’s Candies have been ruled out for viable nicknames.
We’ve never seen him play yet, but from what we can gather he doesn’t disappoint in the Candy department.
Wilkes-Barre should be fully stocked for Halloween this season.
Shero has a sweet tooth.
He spent most of last season with the Las Vegas Wranglers (ECHL).
The 6-3, 200-lb. forward posted 22 points (10G, 12A) and 38 penalty minutes in 35 games.
Drafted by Buffalo in the seventh round (227th overall) in the 2005 Draft.
If he ever gets a two-way deal and makes it to Pittsburgh, the term “bash brothers” would be given a new meaning.
Also, Steiggy would have a field day.
FSN: Did you know the Orpiks were brothers?
Closest we could find to the signature “eyes” pic.
Keep it rollin’.
