The Pittsburgh Penguins announced making some roster moves late yesterday. These moves are aimed at giving the Pens a new look on defense.
The Penguins traded D-man Ben Lovejoy to Anaheim for a fifth-round pick in 2014 and recalled Dylan Reese
According to the Pitt Pens site, Reese, 28, will be a welcome addition to the
Penguins’ blue line. He is a solid, two-way defender with smarts and speed. He’s a perfect fit for the way the Penguins want their defensemen to play. He has the intelligence to know when to join a rush to create
an odd-man break, but also has enough speed to get back into a defensive posture if the puck were turned over or countered.
