The rich get richer.

In an announcement via their official team website, the Pittsburgh Penguins have announced the signing of Zachary Aston-Reese, the top available free agent out of college hockey.

From the Penguins:

The Pittsburgh Penguins have signed college free agent forward Zach Aston-Reese to a two-year, entry-level contract, it was announced today by executive vice president and general manager Jim Rutherford.

The contract will begin with the 2017-18 season and run through the 2018-19 campaign. 

Aston-Reese will report to Wilkes-Barre/Scranton this weekend on an amateur tryout contract this year.

Aston-Reese drew widespread interest across the NHL after his dominant season that saw him record 31 goals and 32 assists for a total of 63 points in just 38 games with the Northeastern University Huskies.

It's a huge win for the Penguins who were competing with a number of other teams for his services.
