Veilleux and Payerl Assigned to Nailers



It was announced today that forwards Adam Payerl and Keven Veilleux have been assigned to the Wheeling Nailers (ECHL) from Wilkes-Barre/Scranton by the Pittsburgh Penguins.

Payerl, 21, skated in five games with Wilkes-Barre/Scranton, potting his first professional goal on Oct. 28 at Hershey. He spent the last season with the Belleville Bulls of the Ontario Hockey League, setting career highs with 22 goals, 47 points and 106 penalty minutes over 61 games.

Payerl signed an amateur try-out agreement with the Penguins on Apr. 10, registering an assist over two games.

Veilleux, 23, has yet to appear in any game action since suffering an injury in an exhibition contest last September that cost him his entire 2011-12 season. The St-Georges-de-Beauce, QC-native posted 12 goals, 24 assists and 122 penalty minutes over 66 games in 2010-11.

The Penguins host the Binghamton Senators on Wednesday, Nov. 7 at 7:05 PM.

About B.Pettit

Lead Journalist - Owner - Editor I developed PensFans4Ever back when the Penguins first came to Wilkes-Barre. It was started to keep the Wilkes-Barre/Scranton Penguins Fans along with the Pittsburgh Penguin Fans up to date with happenings as far as who is up and who is down. We Started out as just a message board where we would post news and information and other fans would post their feelings and any information they had. We then turned into a dot com and started making a true web site, at first it was just news, we incorporated a message board into the site. By the third year we added a chat feature. This enables the fans to gather in a live chat room during games that they can’t be at. We try to make it as informative as possible. Since everything that has happened to us we have turned our site into a blog but keeping with what we started out to do not just giving you our thoughts and interpretations we incorporate official team news and press releases.
