WBS Baby Pens Sign Samuelsson to Amateur Contract

The Penguins just announced that their AHL affiliate, WBS Baby Pens, signed defenseman Philip Samuelsson to an amateur tryout contract. Earlier this month, Pittsburgh signed Sanuelsson to a entry-level contract.

I'm guessing this means the Baby Pens are short on defensemen and need to have him play for a short period of time ... a game or two - not exactly sure how those contracts work (and I believe this is what the Pens signed the Russian goalie, Alexander Pechurskiy, to when he played one game for them back in January 2010).

The Baby Pens advanced to the second round of the AHL Calder Cup playoffs and their first game of this round against Charlotte Checkers is tomorrow night.
