2010 Draft - Beau Bennett

The Pens selected Beau Bennett in the first round of the 2010 NHL Draft.

Beau is listed as a RW, but spent much of the later part of his season with Penicton playing center.

He has average size (6'1", 176 lbs) and will need to get bigger and stronger.

There's a good interview with Beau, done after he was picked, over here.

Here's a brief snippet from the interview, with Beau talking about his strengths and what he needs to work on:
Definitely bring some creativity to the game. I can create off the right side or the left side. Definitely need to work on some things, as well, with my defensive play and strength. I think going forward, I'll get better in some aspects.
Bennett will attend Denver University, so he's several years away from the NHL.

Nice pick for the future.
