Conklin Lands A Penguin

Ty Conklin has moved on to join the Pittsburgh Penguins organization yesterday as a backup to the Penguins' starter, first overall draft pick, Marc Andre-Fleury.

The half-million dollar, one-year deal will see him with the potential to play with either the parent club or their AHL affiliate, the Wilkes-Barre Scranton Penguins. Wilkes-Barre's other goaltenders are a young lot with little pro experience and include Dany Sabourin, who's expected to compete with Ty for the backup position, and then two total newcomers from the college ranks, David Brown (Notre Dame), and fellow Hockey East alum, John Curry (BU) - both coming off of outstanding senior seasons.

Congratulations Ty! Good to see you still going strong.

Go 'Cats!
