Pens Collegians

First off, congrats to the Pittsburgh Penguins. Granted I am a bit biased being a Pens fan, but this was one of the most enjoyable playoffs in recent memory. While Evgeni Malkin won the Conn Smythe and Marc Andre Fleury made the biggest save of his life in the waning seconds of game 7, this is about the former collegians who play for the Pens. What follows is a list of the Pens who played college hockey and appeared for the Penguins in their playoff run.

Craig Adams (Harvard, ECAC Hockey)

Bill Guerin (Boston College, Hockey East)

Chris Kunitz (Ferris State, CCHA)

Mark Eaton (Notre Dame, CCHA)

Hal Gill (Providence, Hockey East)

Alex Goligoski (Minnesota, WCHA)

Ben Lovejoy (Boston College, Hockey East and Dartmouth, ECAC Hockey)

Brooks Orpik (Boston College, Hockey East)

Rob Scuderi (Boston College, Hockey East)

Thoughts: There are some academic powers on this list (Dartmouth, Harvard, Notre Dame) but you might as well call them the Boston College Penguins with all the former Eagles on the roster. And what’s more, current BC defenseman Carl Sneep is a Pens draftee. John Curry must feel out of place on that team.
