Nick D'Agostino (Pittsburgh's 2008 Seventh Round Draft Pick) by Aubri Covol

Aubri, a guest blogger who has previously written for HftL, has helped me out once again.  The ECEC and WCH have been sparse these past few weeks, so I decided to use a guest post again today.

For those of you who are new to HftL and may not know Aubri, READ HER STORY HERE (and my interview with her HERE). And to read Aubri's previous post, CLICK HERE.

Sid and Aubri (LUCKY girl!)
BIGS THANKS to Aubri, for her most recent post which is about another one of the many up-and-coming hot, young guns in the Penguins organization - NICK D'AGOSTINO (see what you think, but I think he bares a little resemblance to our one and only captain, Sid!). 
Most women love men with athletic skills, but usually that comes with the price of them having no brains to go with it. Well, this rising star is currently playing hockey at Cornell University and hopefully will be joining our Pittsburgh Penguins sometime soon.

Nick D’Agostino spent two season with St. Michael’s Buzzards of the OJHL, and in his first season there he was drafted by the Pittsburgh Penguins in 2008 in the seventh round. He was named the OJHL central division’s top defenseman. Along with being the top defenseman in his division, he was also honored by being chosen to represent team Canada East at the World Junior A challenge in 2008-2009, helping them to finish in third place.

In the 2009-2010 season, D’Agostino racked up a total of eighteen points (4 goals, 14 assists), and plus thirteen in his 32 games played. He continued that success into the 2010-2011 season racking up seventeen points (7 goals, 10 assists), but sunk in the plus/minus category ending up being a minus eleven.

Nick D’Agostino is not only a good looking hockey player, he is also is extremely smart getting an education at Cornell University. He has the entire package of being a smart, good looking, and an athlete. Everybody wishes you the best of luck in your upcoming season at Cornell and hope you can join the Penguins organization soon!
