Penguins sign Dea, trim 11 from training camp roster

The Pittsburgh Penguins on Tuesday signed forward Jean-Sebastien Dea to a three-year, entry-level contract while also re-assigning 11 players.

Dea, goaltenders Matt Murray and Tristan Jarry, and forward Matia Marcantuoni were sent back to their respective junior teams. Forwards Paul Thompson, Tom Kostopoulos, Brian Gibbons and Dominik Uher, and defensemen Clark Seymour, Reid McNeill and Nick D'Agostino were sent to Wilkes-Barre/Scranton of the American Hockey League.

Dea, 19, attended training camp on an amateur tryout contract after leading a group of Penguins prospects with three points (one goal, two assists) in three games at the rookie tournament in London, Ontario in early September.

The 5-foot-11, 176-pound Dea has played the past two seasons with the Rouyn-Noranda Huskies of the Quebec Major Junior Hockey League. Last season he finished 11th in the league with 85 points (45 goals, 40 assists) in 68 regular-season games.

Quote of the Day

The groove of being behind a bench is going to be interesting at first, but thank God we have a few exhibition games to get rid of those cobwebs. Overall the excitement of it all and the freshness and coming back refreshed, all those things are going to be assets. If [the players] come ready to give their best effort in practice and games, good things are going to happen. I'm always looking for results. It's not always on the scoreboard. It's winning and building something.
