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

He's only 17 but he can see the ice so well and he moves the puck and goes to the open ice all the time, so I just think he's a player that is ready to play in the NHL. I'm really looking forward to coaching someone like this.

— U.S. National Junior Team coach Ron Wilson on Auston Matthews, the projected No. 1 pick of the 2016 NHL Draft
