    To confirm, it's Kenny Agostino, Jersey native born in Morristown grew up in Mt Olive, went to Delbarton then Yale. Played in Calgary, STL, Boston and Montreal organizations, now NJ.

    Was never part of the Pittsburgh organization...that was Nick D'Agostino.

    He really is underrated. Seems like no matter where he plays he always gives it his all

    He was drafted by Shero in Pittsburgh and thrown into the Iginla trade.

    He's not so bad, he's just inconsistent as all hell and absolutely useless when he's not "on"

    Out of curiosity does anyone know which team has lost the most players to waiver claims?

    Drafted in round 5 by Pittsburgh in 2010. Traded to Calgary in the deal that sent Iginla to the Penguins.

    I don't get it either. When he went pro, he had a couple good years with the Flames farm club, looked solid in his first NHL stint, then new management took over and just didn't give him a qualifying offer. He goes to the Blues, tears up the AHL, gets just 7 games with the big club. Leaves as a Group VI UFA (iirc), heads to Boston. More of the same, solid AHL season, just a cup of coffee in the NHL. Montreal finally gave Agostino a chance and in the games I saw, he looked good, clearly not a top 6 forward, but he's smart, defensively reliable, not afraid to get involved physically.

    Now, he's getting the chance with his hometown team. I really hope he gets a chance to stick and find a home. I've loved the kids since I started watching Yale games after the Iginla trade, through his two years with Adirondack & Stockton and his first few NHL games. Frankly, I wish the Flames would have thrown a 7th or something the Habs way and given Agostino a shot on their 4th line and demoted Mangiapane.

    Kenny Agostino was traded to the Flames by the Penguins in the Jarome Iginla deal. He was apart of their organization, he just never played a game for them.

    edit: it appears I was beaten, by well everyone lol

    Kenny was a solid winger on the Habs 5th line. He should be good on the Devils 4th or 3rd lines.
