Observations:

February 2017 – While it's debatable whether the miniscule blueliner will ever become an NHL regular (three points in 16 big-league games), there's no disputing the breakout campaign he's enjoying in the AHL. With 12 goals and 25 assists in 38 games, he's third in points for Wilkes-Barre/Scranton as well as leading the league at plus-28. His timing is great because he's a UFA after this season. Mark Allan

October 2016 – In the absence of injured blueliners Derrick Pouliot and Kris Letang, Warsofsky has been recalled by Pittsburgh, although he's well down on the Penguins' depth chart. Mark Allan

October 2016 – The Torey Krug wannabe cleared waivers and was assigned to Wilkes-Barre/Scranton of the AHL, where he might remain for the rest of the season. Mark Allan

July 2016 – David Warsofsky is back in Pittsburgh after signing a one-year, two-way contract worth $575,000. The 26 year old is a well travelled journeyman defenceman who is skilled but undersized. After starting the season in Pittsburgh last year, he was claimed off waivers by New Jersey. Warsofsky also played for Team USA at the 2016 World Championship where in ten games he posted one goal and four assists. No stranger to international hockey, Warsofsky won the Gold Medal with Team USA at the 2010 World Junior Championship, and the Bronze at the 2008 U-18 World Championship where he posted seven points. Warsofsky is worth a roster spot in deep keeper leagues with a minor league system as he has the offensive upside and a very attractive cap hit to potentially stay on the roster. Peter Harling
