Looks like Eric Hartzell did pretty well for himself getting his entry-level deal over with early, says CapGeek. So did the guy who beat him out for the Hobey Baker (but didn’t beat him in the semifinal), Drew LeBlanc. Meanwhile, the guy who beat him in the final in Pittsburgh last spring, Jeff Malcolm, signed with Hartford*. Meanwhile, Hartzell will find Peter Mannino in Wilkes-Barre/Scranton after Mannino signed an AHL deal there.
And RIP, Emile Griffith.
*-Got to admit, it’s nice to call them that unironically again. “Wolf Pack in the house,” etc.
