Pens sign Aaron Boogaard

The Pens signed Aaron Boogaard to an entry-level contract. Boogaard was drafted by the Minnesota Wild in 2004 and has been playing the WHL for the past 5 seasons.

Aaron is still only 20 years old, and will likely be a fixture for Wilkes-Barre for a few years. He hasn't put many points on the board (only 21 this season - 10 G, 11 A), but has racked up 384 penalty minutes over the past two seasons in the WHL. Can you say Dennis Bonvie replacement?

Hat tip to Will for pointing this out in the comments.

Let's hope it heals right and he's ready to go for training camp. I really like Whitney and he's proving to be a huge player for the Pens. Now if we can just get some tough, stay at-home, d-guys we'll be looking good. Oh yeah, and a few scoring wingers to play with Crosby!
