AHL #Pens Add Four, Where the #WBSPens Stand Now

Thursday, August 8, 2013

The Wilkes-Barre/Scranton Penguins announced the re-signing of forwards Chris Minella and Denver Manderson and defenseman Peter Merth to AHL contracts this morning. The AHL Pens also added defenseman Dustin Stevenson to an AHL deal as well today.

These moves are intended to build depth and the guys added today are in that ECHL/AHL "tweener" category. They're experienced enough to play in the AHL when called upon, but will likely start the season in Wheeling (ECHL).

Most of the big-name NHL and AHL free agents are off the board at this point. As the dust begins to settle on this free agency offseason, let's take a look at what the WBS Penguins will likely have at their disposal when their preseason schedule begins on September 25th up in western New York.

Forwards (16)
Andrew Ebbett, Chris Conner, Nick Drazenovic, Harry Zolniercyk, Zach Sill, Brian Gibbons, Paul Thompson, Jayson Megna, Dominik Uher, Adam Payerl, Tom Kuhnhackl, Bobby Farnham, Steve MacIntyre, Anton Zlobin, Chris Minella, Denver Manderson
Defensemen (9)
Philip Samuelsson, Brian Dumoulin, Brendan Mikkelson, Scott Harrington, Reid McNeill, Nick D'Agostino, Harrison Ruopp, Peter Merth, Dustin Stevenson
