It Begins: Penguins Open Training Camp by @Puck_Princess17
Summer has officially ended. Daylight is getting shorter. Soon the cool, crisp air of October will waft through the hills and valleys of south-western Pennsylvania. With that air comes the sound of skates hitting the ice, stick on puck, and the booming yell of "DO IT RIGHT!"
Today, Penguins Nation, today our reigning Stanley Cup Champions open training camp and begin the work needed to make a repeat run at yet another Championship. The Penguins return all but three players from last season (Ben Lovejoy, Beau Bennett, and Mr. Game One, Jeff Zatkoff) and boast a new crop of Baby Pens eager to break in and make their mark on the NHL.
Who will be the standout in camp? Who will emerge as the leaders? Who will finally live up to their potential? Can the Penguins be the first team since the Detroit Red Wings to win back-to-back Stanley Cups? The answers will come soon.
Check out the first Penguins Hype Video of the season (above), the training camp roster and get your rally towels ready. The March of the Penguins begins NOW.
