THANK GOODNESS for Vince over at "Pesonen and the Pens" blog or we wouldn't have these great little facts about Janne Pesonen and Pens nation would have no idea what he's about before he arrives for camp in a few weeks (he will be the best-known Pens player of all time)!!
Strangely enough, there are similar traits between the progression of his life of hockey (living in Finland) and coming to play for the Pens! He definitely has black and gold running through his veins -- logos for the Pens, his Karpat team, and the town in which he lives all have the common thread of black and gold -- so he was BORN to play with the Pittsburgh Penguins (or, perhaps, he was born a Pittsburgh Penguin)!!
HANG IN THERE, Vince!! Training camp is only a few weeks away and I'm certain there will be TONS to post on your blog about Janne then!! But until that time, I have faith that you will continue to amaze us with your hard-to-find Pesonen facts!
