Simon Despres has already re-signed, but you might have missed some other depth signings.
Next up for the Pittsburgh Penguins prospects is the rookie camp in London, Ontario from Sept. 13-16. The Pens are scheduled to play prospects from the Chicago Blackhawks, Ottawa Senators and Toronto Maple Leafs in the annual rookie tournament across the four-day camp.

Between now and then - starting Tuesday with an update on Conor Sheary - expect to see more feature stories on Penguins prospects that are pegged for AHL duty in the fall. Learn more about what the guys have been doing in the off-season as well as their mentality heading into rookie camp and the main NHL training camp.

Things you might have missed over the last week or so:
  • All of the Penguins restricted free agents that spent time in the AHL last season have been re-signed with Jayson Megna, Philip Samuelsson, Bobby Farnham inking one-year deals. Simon Despres signed a two year contract, perhaps getting a fresh start with new management in Pittsburgh.
  • I caught up with the fine folks at Pens Initiative for a story on a wide range of Penguins Development Camp topics.
  •  Friend and colleague Ian Altenbaugh had this look at Dominik Uher/Adam Payerl and their quest to make a push for the NHL over on Hockey's Future.
