One of the newest members of the Pittsburgh Penguins franchise has been making a big splash this year, so big he might even figure into the Penguins’ post-season plans.

Zach Aston-Reese signed with the Penguins on March 14th, 2017. The 22-year-old, 6’0, 180 lbs forward promptly reported to AHL affiliate Wilkes-Barre/Scranton.

Fresh off a NCAA career that saw him score 63 points (31 goals and 32 assists) in 38 games this season alone, Aston-Reese won the NCAA Hockey East Player of the Year Award, and was a finalist for the Hobey Baker Award for NCAA MVP. He had 66 goals and 82 assists for 148 points through 145 games played with the NCAA’s Northeastern University team.

Aston-Reese who will earn his first start tomorrow for the Wilkes-Barre Penguins was already skating on the top line and practiced on the first power-play unit. It's only a matter of time before Aston-Reese makes his first stride in the NHL.
