Here is the long awaited interview with Ben Hanowski (audio may be slightly hard to hear):

Hanowski looked bigger on the ice this year and a little bit quicker. He needs to continue to get bigger to make it in the pro game.

This coming season at St. Cloud State is probably one of the most important years because if he takes a big step forward then the Penguins know they have a good player and hopefully a future star on their hands.

If he does not, then Hanowski may not become the scoring wing Shero and Co. were hoping for when they drafted him in the 3rd round last year.

Interview with Alex Smigelski coming later tonight and an interview with Beau Bennett on Wednesday.
