Chiodo praises Whitney


Endicott didn't lead the Penguins in scoring in the series against the Phantoms. Neither did captain Tom Kostopoulos. No, that honor went to rookie Ryan Whitney, who had six assists in as many games against the Phantoms.

"I try to add some offense to the game, but I definitely don't expect to lead the team in scoring for a series," Whitney said. "I'd be really, really, really surprised if it happened again. But it helped the team, so it's all good."

Whitney has been just what the doctor ordered for a Penguins defense corps that has struggled moving the puck at times this season. And his pro career is still just 12 games old.

"Look at how great a player Whitney already is," Chiodo said. "He makes such a great first pass. He reads the play so well. A great guy. It's just a sign of what's to come. I think there are a lot of good things ahead in this organization."

That's cool to hear feedback from the guy that Whitney is playing in front of.

Chiodo's a smart man with the way he can rally the troops in front of him. Kind of con-artisty, but smart none-the-less.
