Penguins send goalie Hartzell to minors

The Pittsburgh Penguins reduced their roster to 43 players by sending goaltender Eric Hartzell to Wilkes-Barre/Scranton of the American Hockey League.

Hartzell played in one preseason game, stopping all four shots he faced in relief of Tomas Vokoun on Sept. 16.

Hartzell, 24, signed with the Penguins out of Quinnipiac University and is entering his first professional season.

Quote of the Day

That was something I've been dreaming of, something I've told myself before the third period I was going to do ... It was an amazing feeling. It's hard to describe. I didn't believe it went in at first but when I saw all the reaction and all the fans going crazy and my teammates going crazy, it's just an unbelievable feeling. I didn't know what to do. I didn't know whether to jump or just skate and do a Theo Fleury. I don't think I'm the same caliber player he is so I couldn't do it.
