Moon, Bortuzzo Sign Amature Tryout Contracts
Into The Boards is reporting that the Penguins have signed two key prospects to amateur tryout contracts.
Forward Nathan Moon (4th Round – 2008) and defenseman Robert Bortuzzo (3rd Round – 2007) have been inked to deals that could send them along for the ride with Wilkes-Barre/Scranton during their playoff run.
Bortuzzo only played 23 games this season for the Kitchener Rangers of the OHL due to a shoulder injury. He registered 17 points in his return (1+16).
At Faceoff-Factor, we followed Nathan Moon all year long, and had a chance to talk to him late last month. Check out the interview here
This is a great reward for both players, but especially Moon, who had an excellent end to his season and who brings a ton of offensive talent to the table.
Stay tuned to FF as we continue to follow the journey of these two youngsters.
