-Happy 47th birthday to former Penguins defenseman Bobby Dollas. Orginally coming to the Penguins in the 1998 offseason along with Tony Hrkac in a deal which sent Josef Beranek to the Oilers, Dollas spent parts of two seasons in two stints with the Penguins. In 1998-99, he appeared in 70 games for the Penguins and scored 10 points. During that spring's postseason, he saw action in 13 games and scored one goal. In the 1999 offseason, he joined Long Beach of the IHL as a free agent. At the 2001 trade deadline, Dollas returned to the Penguins when he was acquired along with Johan Hedberg in a deal which sent Jeff Norton to the Sharks. He appeared in five games for the Penguins and failed to record a point. He was released in the 2001 offseason. In 75 regular seasons games with the Penguins, he scored 15 points.
