Former Irish right winger signs deal with Penguins
Share with others:
The Penguins yesterday signed Tim Wallace, a right winger who caught the team's eye in an amateur tryout and spent last season in the minor leagues.
Wallace, 22, who set a Notre Dame record by playing in 153 consecutive games in four seasons, attended Penguins rookie camp and part of regular training camp last year.
He then had 17 points in 19 games with Wheeling of the East Coast Hockey League and 14 points in 32 games with Wilkes-Barre/Scranton of the American Hockey League during his first pro season.
He had 59 points in his college career with the Fighting Irish.
A 6-foot-1, 205-pound native of Anchorage, Alaska, Wallace is the second undrafted player signed in the past week.
With so many prospects advancing to the NHL level the past two seasons, the Penguins are building depth in their organization. They signed defenseman Jonathan D'Aversa on Friday.
