The Pittsburgh Penguins added their third free agent prospect this month. On Thursday, the Penguins signed Princeton undrafted free agent Corey Andonovski to a two-year entry-level contract.
Andonovski, 22, will report to the WBS Penguins on a PTO, and his entry-level contract will begin next season. He recently completed a three-year collegiate career at Princeton University. This season, the forward led Princeton in goals (10), assists (12), and points (22) in 31 games.
He is listed as a center in some draft publications but played RW with Princeton.
In his Sophomore year, the 6-foot-1, 195-pound forward ranked second on his team with 13 assists and 19 points. As a Freshman, he was recognized by the team with the Hobey Baker Award for the Most Outstanding Freshman in 2018-19. He led the freshmen with nine points (5-4-9) in 23 games.
Andonovski played one season with the Chilliwack Chiefs of the British Columbia Hockey League in 2017-18. In 2017, Central Scouting ranked him the 184th among North American skaters.
In 80 career NCAA games, Corey Andonovski scored 21 goals, 29 assists, and 50 points. He has been a teammate of Penguins 2018 sixth-round pick Liam Gorman for the past two seasons.
Earlier this month, the Penguins also signed undrafted juniors Jordan Frasca (Kingston, OHL) and goalie Taylor Gauthier (Portland, WHL).
According to our friends at PuckPedia.com, he will have an $832.500 base, and an $92.500 signing bonus. He will make $80,000 in minors and carry a 925K cap hit.
