Be prepared for us to make unlimited Plot to Bomb the Panhandle references.
It had been talked about for a few weeks now, but the Penguins made it official, signing Plotnikov to a 1 year, entry-level deal. He’s just 25, but he will knock the hell out of you.
It’s a safe, low-risk, solid top 9 signing. Oh, and he played on a line with Malkin in international play. Getting Kessel and Plot isn’t such a bad haul on the first day of free agency.
