Pittsburgh Penguins‘ 1st round pick in the 2010 draft (#20 overall), left wing Beau Bennett(13) decided to turn pro after only a couple of years of college hockey, signing a three year entry level deal that keeps him with the organization through 2015.
The 21-year old has on his first two levels shown to be prolific on the scoresheet and in 18 AHL games to start his rookie season, he’s already struck for 4 goals and 9 assists.
At 6’1″ 195 lbs. the forward already has size and works it to gain position for scoring chances.
He might just be the first player ever to be born in Gardena, CA to play in the NHL. We’re projected that obviously.
