Reader "knightsfan89" was up in London for the rookie tournament yesterday where he caught the last game against Chicago.
He was cool enough to send some more pics along to us. Here they are:
Patrick Killeen chilling near the bench. Probably just made a hair-cut appointment in Wheeling somewhere.
The leading scorer for the Pens in the tourney, Zach Sill talks about how he won't get a shot at Greg Amadio this year.
If you don't know who that is or why he dislikes him, this should give you a pretty good idea:
Tangradi thinking about possible ways he could improve ticket sales at the JLC.
That's one way to do it.
Pens bench. Veilleux's checking out some broad in section 11.
Mattias Modig after getting lit up and pulled. Too much snus?
When he arrived for his dental review, he had a container of something similar to snuff that he said is popular among Swedish players. Although his English is good, Modig had a hard time explaining exactly what the substance is. He said it's placed in the mouth but is not chewing tobacco and doesn't require spitting. It decidedly did not get the dentist's approval.
Got like 13 e-mails about Despres' highlight-reel goal.
No pics or video of it anywhere.
Knightsfan gives us his final thoughts:
Tangradi's goal was good. He is a good power forward from what I've seen. He has the size to fight around the net and score, and his fight was ok. Wouldn't say either man won, Papin was a little too big for him. There was reports he was injured in the fight his shoulder, but i think with 7 mins left in the game they just sent him to the dressing room to avoid any other action.
