2010 Draft - Fifth Round - Kenneth Agostino

Agostino was a great high school player from New Jersey. He piled up tons of goals and points, and his team was ridiculously successful. His defense was highly praised.

So why is he just a fifth round pick? Because it's high school hockey in New Jersey.

Agostino is on the small side and plays wing. He'll go to Yale in the fall.

In Lou We Trust has a great article summarizing the information about Agostino that's available online here.

This is a long term project for the Pens. They'll need to see him perform at the next level first, much like Ben Hanowski, but not quite as promising.
