July 2020 – Angello was one of 17 forwards who made the Penguins postseason roster for the Stanley Cup Playoffs in Toronto. Clare McManus
May 2020 – The impending RFA had a breakout campaign with the Wilkes-Barre/Scranton Penguins, scoring 16 goals and adding nine assists for 25 points in 48 games, while also leading the team in goals scored. He should earn himself a contract come summertime. Clare McManus
February 2020 – A last-minute replacement for an ill Evgeni Malkin, Angello got his first NHL goal (and point) in a 5-2 win over Toronto. Setting up unhindered in front of the Leafs’ net, the 23-year-old cleverly deflected a shot from Marcus Pettersson past a helpless Frederik Andersen. It was a preview of what’s to come for the 6-5 center, a budding net-front presence. Just don’t expect more from him in the short term other than intermittent appearances on the fourth line.

January 2020 – The towering center could get into his first NHL game after being recalled from the AHL on an emergency loan basis. Although he has just nine assists in 45 outings with Wilkes-Barre/Scranton, the strapping 23-year-old leads the baby Penguins with 16 goals and is tied for the team lead with a trio of game-winners. The hope in Pittsburgh is that they have a future shutdown middleman who contributes some timely scores. He becomes an RFA after this campaign. Mark Allan<
