Player Listed on Roster but Never Announced

When I recently took a look at the current Pittsburgh Penguin's roster on NHL.com, I noticed that there is a new player listed that was never announced by the Penguins / the media but has been mentioned briefly on a couple of message boards.

Center David Gove is / was member of the Carolina Hurricanes. He spent the 2006-2007 season playing the majority of his career on Albany in the AHL. There were no stats listed for the 2007-2008 season on NHL.com; however, I checked the Baby Penguins site and it shows that Gove spent part of the 2007-2008 season with the Albany River Rats and the other with Wilkes-Barre / Scranton Penguins.

Interestingly, Gove also played for the ECHL Johnstown Chiefs (my hometown) in 2001-2002! I'm not "up" on Chiefs news / info so I can't really elaborate on this player.

Stephanie,
The Pens picked up Gove from the Canes at the trade deadline this past season. He played in WB/S and will most likely land back there again this year.

I guess if I had to compare him to a current Penguin, i'd say he is probably most similar to Taffe, with a little more quickness.
