The Pittsburgh Penguins added a pair of notable overagers to their stable, signing goaltender Taylor Gauthier and forward Jordan Frasca.
Gauthier, 21, has been a stalwart in the WHL throughout his career, serving as a starting goalie with the Prince George Cougars and the Portland Winterhawks. He has a 20-6-0 record with three shutouts this season, and his .932 save percentage is tops in the league. Gauthier was Canada's third goalie at the 2021 World Junior Championship and was a starter at the 2019 U-18 World Championship, with Hockey Canada showing faith in the undrafted goaltender to take part in major events.
Frasca, 20, has a career-high 32 goals and 65 points with the Kingston Frontenacs, with his goal count putting him fifth in the OHL. Frasca previously played parts of two seasons with the Windsor Spitfires, and has 133 points in 173 total OHL games.
Jordan's youngest brother, Gabriel Frasca, is one of the top players for the 2022 OHL draft. Jacob Frasca, a 6-foot-4 defenseman with the Barrie Colts, is up for the NHL draft this season.
