Pittsburgh Penguins‘ 2nd round pick in the 2011 draft (#54 overall) defenseman Scott Harrington(6) is having exactly the kind of building block rookie year right out of the gate playing games with minor league affiliate Wilkes-Barre/Scranton Penguins.
In 23 AHL games he has a pair of tallies and 6 assists with a +7 rating. He also appeared in 2 playoff games, scoring his first professional goal.
The 6’3″ 205 lbs. blue liner plays mostly a solid, stay-at-home style but did show he can contribute on the score sheet in four years of junior hockey with London Knights.
He also won a pair of OHL Championships serving as team captain in the most recent title grab.
The 20-year old is signed to a three-year entry level deal that keeps him in the prospect system through 2016.
He could easily receive his first NHL recall this season but may also stay put to help the farm club go deep in the postseason.
