The Pittsburgh Penguins have signed forward Anthony Angello to a two-year, entry-level contract, it was announced today by executive vice president and general manager Jim Rutherford.
Angello's deal will begin with the 2018-19 campaign. He will report to the Wilkes-Barre/Scranton Penguins on an amateur tryout contract.
Angello was the Penguins' fifth round (145th overall) draft selection in the 2014 NHL Draft.
Angello, 22, just finished his third season of collegiate hockey at Cornell, where he produced 13 goals, 13 assists, 26 points and a plus-16 in 33 games. His goal and point total tied for the team lead. Angello was named All-ECAC Second Team and All-Ivy Second Team.
A double-digit goal scorer and 20-point producer in all three of his seasons at Cornell, the 6-foot-5, 210-pound Angello wrapped up his college career with 70 points (36G-34A) and a plus-31 in 102 career contests. He led the club with 11 goals in 2015-16, becoming the first Big Red freshman since Colin Greening in 2006-07 to do so.
Before joining Cornell, Angello skated for two seasons with the Omaha Lancers of the United States Hockey League. He was a USHL Scholar-Athlete Award winner in 2013-14.
A native of Albany, New York, the righthanded-shooting Angello represented Team USA at the 2014 World Junior-A Challenge, where he helped the Americans take the gold. Angello finished that tournament tied for second on the team in scoring with five points (2G-3A) in four games. Angello was tied in scoring with Brock Boeser, the Vancouver Canucks star rookie who was the MVP of the 2018 NHL All-Star Game.
