Simon Despres(47) Pittsburgh Penguins

Pittsburgh Penguins‘ 1st pick in the 2009 draft (#30 overall) defenseman Simon Desprese(47) started his rookie season with their AHL affiliate Wilkes-Barre/Scranton Penguins. In 22 games, he has 3 goals and 4 assists and is a +3. At 6’4″ 205 lbs. he’s bound to put on at least 15 more pounds of muscle in the next couple seasons to fill out his frame and overall game.

He received his first recall and had an assist in his NHL debut, a win vs. Washington Capitals.

He wears the same number 47 in the NHL as he does in the AHL.
