Pittsburgh is hanging on to one of college hockey’s biggest stars from last season.
The team announced they’ve re-signed goalie Eric Hartzell to a two-year contract worth $550,000 at the NHL level, should he make it there. He signed with the Penguins following his tremendous senior season at Quinnipiac.
Hartzell made a name for himself leading the Bobcats to their first ever national championship game and winding up a finalist for the Hobey Baker Award for college hockey’s best player. He was also a first-team All-American last year as well and was the ECAC’s Player of the Year.
Expect to see Hartzell compete for the starting job at Wilkes Barre-Scranton in the AHL next season with last season’s No. 1 there, Jeff Zatkoff.
