Cranberry Twp, PA — Pittsburgh Penguins Director of Player Development Scott Young offered his assessment of the Penguins new crop of prospects, who were on display over the three-day development camp at the UPMC Lemieux Complex Wednesday through Friday.
PHN’s Dan Kingerski offered a live analysis of the Penguins prospects on Thursday and during the three-on-three scrimmage Friday. Kingerski was impressed with several prospects including third-round choice Nathan Legare, first rounder Sam Poulin, and Finnish goalie Emil Larmi. A profile and chat with Larmi will appear on PHN at 8 a.m. Saturday morning.
Kingerski’s conclusion was the Penguins have more prospect depth than at any point since 2015 when Conor Sheary, Bryan Rust and Jake Guentzel were in the system. Young did little to hide his enthusiasm for the group, as well.
Unlike 2018, when Young was forced to do a hard sales job on the sparse talent available, he spoke for only three minutes Friday and didn’t want to single one player out for praise.
