Wilkes-Barre Scranton - September 9, 2013 - The Pittsburgh Penguins announced today that they have invited 54 players (30 forwards; 18 defensemen; 6 goaltenders) to training camp, these numbers are according to the Pittsburgh Penguins web site.

According to the Penguins site these players Included are 21 players who were members of the Penguins’ Eastern Conference finals roster, headlined by captain Sidney Crosby, co-playoff team scoring leaders Evgeni Malkin and Kris Letang and 2012-13 NHL First-Team All-Star left wing Chris Kunitz.

The Penguins also return NHL plus-minus leader Pascal Dupuis, the team’s regular-season goal-scoring leader James Neal, two-way blueliner Paul Martin, alternate captain Brooks Orpik and the goaltending tandem of Marc-Andre Fleury and Tomas Vokoun.
