    Day 23 – Pittsburgh Penguins

    The Penguins organization’s prospect strength is on defence. They have a variety of defensive styles represented but very few lack that offensive punch needed for today’s NHL. Outside of a hit-or-miss prospect in Eric Tangradi and Beau Bennett, most of their forward prospects lack top scoring line upside or are still a few years away in development. In a few years their prospect depth could fill their needs for younger (as well as cheaper) depth at the NHL level but not immediately. The only smaller solutions are players like Simon Despres and Eric Tangradi who are still feeling their way out in the NHL. The Penguins also had a very strong NHL entry draft picking up Derrick Pouliot, Olli Maata and acquiring Brian Dumoulin via trade.

    RW- Beau Bennett (USA) Wilkes-Barre Scranton Penguins

    6’1’’ 190, 20 years

    Soon after finishing his sophomore season at the University of Denver, Bennett signed an entry-level contract with the Penguins. After only playing in 10 college games, Bennett will have to stay healthy to prove he can withstand the rigors of professional hockey. Truly a threat with the puck at all times, he may have rushed his development by turning pro. His slick puck handling and his offensive creativity help make Bennett a prospect with good potential. He plays with a style similar to a Bryan Little or Blake Wheeler. If he can impress early on, he has the opportunity to earn a second line winger scoring position in the event that he manages to unseat long time incumbent Pascal Dupuis. Bennett has the possibility to be a big producer at a young age because of the talent that surrounds him in Pittsburgh but a lot remains to be seen if he is at all ready for that responsibility.

    Projection: Top six forward
Potential Upside: 40-65 points (Blake Wheeler)
    ETA: 2013-14

    D - Brian Dumoulin (USA) Charlotte Checkers

    6’4’’ 209, 20 years

    After a strong three seasons at Boston College, Dumoulin signed with Hurricanes in April 2012. He plays a strong two-way game and racked up a lot assists for the Boston College Eagles. He’ll never put up elite offensive numbers but he could grow to become like a fellow former Eagle, Bob Sweeney back when Sweeney was stellar defensively and registered 40+ points per season. He probably will be forced out of the Hurricanes regular rotation for the 2012-13 season because of the immense depth they have on defense, the towering Dumoulin will have room grow in the AHL. He is also a very smart defender and that will only improve over time in both ends of the ice. Dumoulin came over to the Penguins in the Carolina Hurricanes’ trade for Jordan Staal.

    Projection: Two-way defenseman

    Potential Upside: 35-40 points (Bob Sweeney)
    ETA: 2013-14
