I was impressed with his shot this preseason.
I'm happy for the kid, had a strong camp!
Acceptable. Good luck kid.
Good for him.
Cool. I came in ready to make fun of the puff piece about him but he won me over. He had a good camp and earned it. I like his style.
Anyone know why he's listed as waivers exempt? He played out a 3 year ELC and has 4 AHL seasons under his belt.
Guess that's why Freddie Tiffels is gone (at least in part).
I think 0 NHL games played..
And he's on waivers now, assuming that means after this
Yup, this says that he is on waivers, so it looks like an error on CapFriendly's part.
Penguins reward winger Ryan Haggerty with NHL deal
At worst should be a good AHL scorer.
Bigger body RH shot and is insurance for any injuries to RW's.
I like him better than Simon...can actual put the puck in the net....has a deceptive release and is a quick shooter...
I don't see a connection, Penguins are still at 45 contracts, and Haggerty was already in WBS, I think Tiffels had enough of the ECHL and didn't see a future even in the AHL, so he preferred to return to Germany.
If I remember correctly he really hated bouncing between Wheeling and WBS. As you said probably saw more of that as we have a pretty good AHL roster.
Particularly when he was one of the first cuts.
That said, I agree with Giskard, I don't see why there should be a relationship between Haggerty's contract and Tiffels' leaving when we had 45 contracts, even if all the journos reckon it was Tiffels leaving that opened the door.
Good grief you are obsessed.
I like this! Felt like he scored in every other game in the beginning of last season in WBS.
I was a little surprised he didn't get a NHL-contract after last season, but they probably wanted a few contract openings for camp invitees. But since no one turned out to be the new Bellerive/Miletic and Tiffels gone this signing is a no-brainer.
He cleared waivers. Not that there was much of a concern that he would be claimed.
