Offensive growth making Agostino an intriguing prospect


After being an undersized player earlier in his career, Ken Agostino is continually learning how to play to his size at Yale, and is becoming one of the top offensive threats in college hockey.



Agostino is off to a hot start in this, his junior season.  Through his first four games he has three goals and three assists for the Bulldogs. As a freshman and sophomore, Agostino tallied 59 points through his first 64 collegiate games. He even scored at over a point-per-game pace last season as a sophomore.

Agostino, a fifth round pick by the Pittsburgh Penguins, was actually cut from the United States' World Junior team in his freshman season despite putting together a solid freshman campaign.… read more

Well, that is promising to hear. I think he could be one of those steal picks.

Hope to see him or Thompson become a good 3rd line wing once the likes of cooke, dupuis, tk, etc move on

Agreed. He seems like one of those guys that could become an upgrade on Kennedy or Dupuis offensively / be a true 2nd/3rd line tweener. Has the mix of innate skills and work ethic to elevate his game at each level hopefully. Not sure how easy it is to score in the Ivy league vs. say the OHL but encouraging anyway. I don't think I agree with the use of the words "prolific scorer" just yet but he may get there.

If we can build a 3rd line that's tough to play against and a legit offensive threat the way Boston has and will continue to have with a guy like Jordan Caron coming on, it will make us a much better team. Even when Cooke - Staal - TK were in their best days they were still streaky in terms of points. But put someone out there who has legitimate finishing touch / offensive instincts and we could have something pretty good (and cheap) to hang our hats on there. Cooke - Sutter - Kenny (assuming Tango finds his offensive game and sticks in the Top 6 as a younger Kunitz type one day) could be pretty good.

At least we know what his GDT avatar / nickname will be when he gets here, if he gets here.
