Default Re: Pens open against Flyers in Philly?

Welcome aboard Beau!

WINNIPEG, Manitoba --

Beau Bennett might not sizzle in his NHL debut here Friday night. It wouldn't be fair to expect that, anyway. The Penguins' prized prospect is still a baby-faced 21-year-old, he's played only 35 pro games, and, really, he wasn't a mega-scorer in college or in the minors.

The Penguins will give Bennett every chance to do exactly that, based on conversations this week with team executives.

If it takes just a couple shifts Friday against the Jets, great.

If it takes a couple weeks, even the couple months between now and the April 3 NHL trade deadline, that's fine, too.
