-"It's been an exciting last month, that's for sure. First the draft, then the (Penguins') development camp and then signing so quickly. It's been incredible." - second-round pick Scott Harrington (above) on joining the Penguins.

-The AHL Penguins also signed forward Andrew Hotham and re-signed forward Brandon DeFazio to AHL contracts.
-Happy 42nd birthday to former Penguins goaltender Garth Snow (right). A free agent signing just prior to the 2000-01 season, Snow's Penguins career amounted to 35 games hat season in which he went 14-15-4 with a 2.98 goals against average, .900 save percentage and three shutouts. Easily the highlight of his season was a 40-save effort in a 5-0 shutout of the Maple Leafs. Snow probably would've been the first star of the game had it not been for some guy making his season debut that night. In the 2001 offseason, Snow was signed by the Islanders. He is currently the Islanders' general manager.
-The Rangers re-signed restricted free agent forward Ryan Callahan to a three-year deal worth $12.875 million. He will have a salary cap hit of $4.275 million. In 60 games last season, Callahan scored 48 points (23 goals, 25 assists).
-EN Says: That's a pretty hefty cap hit for a player who is primarily a defensive asset. Callahan (right) is an excellent defensive penalty killer. He has some offensive abilities as evidenced by his 23 goals last season but he's a borderline top-six forward.
-The Lightning have privately funded a $35 million renovation of the St. Pete Times Forum.
-Former Ducks goaltender Ray Emery will attend the Blackhawks' training camp on a tryout basis.
