Scott Harrington has played well at camp thus far but his biggest problem may be that he can be returned to the AHL without going through waivers.
The same cannot be said for Simon Despres as he would have to pass through waivers and would likely be lost to the organization. Harrington had five goals and 24 points in his first season in the AHL and said he learned a lot under coach John Hynes and assistant coach Alain Nasreddine. "I learned tons of stuff daily in Wilkes-Barre last year," Harrington said. "Every day is a new learning experience down there." Sep 27 - 10:43 AM

The Pittsburgh Penguins see some similarities between Scott Harrington and defensive defenseman Rob Scuderi.

"The pride. The way they play without the puck. The attention to detail. We like Scott a lot," Penguins assistant GM Tom Fitzgerald said, listing off some of the things Scuderi and Harrington have in common. Harrington will make the jump from the OHL London Knights to the AHL Wilkes-Barre/Scranton Penguins in 2013-14.

The AHL affiliate of the Pittsburgh Penguins signed Scott Harrington to an amateur tryout agreement.

Harrington was the Penguins' second-round pick in 2011. While he might have gotten a chance to make the NHL club if there were a full season, the lockout-shortened campaign restricted him to the London Knights of the Ontario Hockey League all season. Harrington finished with three goals and 19 points in 50 games with the Knights.

Scott Harrington said he was disappointed that he wasn't given a chance to participate in training camp with the Pittsburgh Penguins because of the NHL lockout.

"All summer I worked out looking forward to, hopefully, get a chance to go to camp and then see what happened from there," he said. "I'm lucky, I guess, that I'm not affected as much as the regular NHL guys. I can still play here in London, so that's what my attention is completely focused on right now." He will play his fourth season with the London Knights of the OHL in 2012-13 alongside fellow Penguins prospect Olli Maatta. Maataa, who was selected 22nd overall in the 2012 draft, was also disappointed with not being able to skate with the pros. Both of them are talented defensemen, who should be patrolling Pittsburgh's back end very soon.
