Penguins Make Second Cut of the Pre-Season

The Penguins announced earlier this afternoon that they reduced their camp roster by 11 additional players today - all of which will be reassigned to their affiliate in WB / S (and assuming a few clear waivers).

FORWARDS Chris Conner, Nick Johnson, Brett Sterling, Joe Vitale, Tim Wallace; DEFENSEMEN Robert Bortuzzo, Corey Potter, Brian Strait, Steve Wagner; and GOALTENDERS John Curry and Brad Thiessen.

The following must clear waivers by 12 noon tomorrow before joining the rest of them in WB / S:  Conner, Curry, Potter, Sterling, Wagner and Wallace.

I'm slightly surprised by Sterling being cut unless I sit and ponder all the talent the Pens have ... the depth is unbelievable quite honestly and even though we'd like to see a few players stay here instead of playing in the NHL ... the bottom line is that this is good for the Penguins in the whole scheme of things.

This latest cut gives the Pens a total of 30 players on their roster and will have at least one more cut prior to the pre-season (teams can have no more than 23 players on their roster by the start of the season).
