Rode to the Cup

by Michelle Crechiolo @PensInsideScoop / Penguins Team Reporter

Back in the spring, Rich Vargo and his girlfriend Becky Clever had their annual motorcycle trip all figured out. They take a two-week, themed trek every year, and for this particular ride, they were going northeast to travel the New England coast and eat lots of lobster along the way.

But during the Stanley Cup Final against the Predators, Vargo was watching one of the games when he got an idea. Instead of going up the coast, he thought, they should visit each of the cities the Penguins had a playoff series in. He mentioned the idea to Clever, who agreed, even though she isn't the biggest sports fan.

Young looking forward to new role with Pens

by Michelle Crechiolo @PensInsideScoop / Penguins Team Reporter

Last season, Scott Young would take a break from his role as an assistant coach at Boston University and drive 30 minutes to Cushing Academy to watch his son Tyler, who played for the school's hockey team.

A lot of times, Young would run into former Penguins teammate Mark Recchi, whose son Cameron was also on the team. Young and Recchi ended up spending a fair amount of time with each other throughout the year, at both Cushing Academy and BU, as Young took Recchi's daughter for a tour when she came to the campus for a college visit.

That constant contact with Recchi helped Young land his new position as the Penguins' director of player development. And he couldn't be more thrilled to rejoin the organization he won the Stanley Cup with as a player in 1991.
