This team really does hate taking the time to develop their prospects once they reach the NHL level. Bennett gave them no choice, and even then it wasn't a sure thing, and the defensemen haven't faired much better.
Yeah, I think if it's one thing that gets him to the NHL it's that speed. And he just never quits. For a guy with (really) limited offensive skill who can't even fight that well, he's insanely electric. I will be really bummed if he just bounces elsewhere in the AHL next year. I'd love for the Penguins to give him an NHL deal but he's given WBS so much this season that they have to give him another AHL contract, right?
Just checking the box score and Thiessen is in net, 1-1 late in the 2nd. Trevor Smith with the goal, assisted by Kolarik and Cody Wild. Wild is in the line-up primarily due to Dylan Reese being injured earlier in the series.
Disappointing to see Zatkoff run into playoff bugaboos for the 3rd straight year.
