Jean-Sebastien Dea has been playing well in the AHL.
Dea was undrafted but signed with the Penguins after scoring 45 goals and 85 points in 68 games with Rouyn-Noranda of the QMJHL in 2013. He followed up with a 49 goal performance last season and has eight goals and 18 points in 26 games with the Baby Pens this season in the AHL. He is an offensive center and that could be a problem in cracking the Penguins lineup, but it's a good problem for Pittsburgh to have. Sun, Dec 21, 2014 09:13:00 AM
