I just got back a little while ago from the Rookie Skate held down at Mellon Arena. It was great watching the guys going through their drills and line formations - we have a lot of very good prospects out there. Noah Welch looked awesome, as did Jordan Stahl.
The highlight of the morning was watching Evegni Malkin live and in person. He is big, strong, fast and wow can he skate.....very smooth. He has very long legs and gets an extremely fast jump on the puck. His passes were very good and in summation, all I can say is - we Pens fans are in for a very exciting season! When he came out of the tunnel, we all cheered him and he smiled brightly. Whenever he would put the puck in the net, we gave him more accolades! He is going to bring so much to this hockey club!
Here's a picture from today's skate of our newest star!! Go suck an egg, Russia - he's OURS!
