TSN's Bob McKenzie reported this afternoon that the Pittsburgh Penguins reached a deal with Denver junior-to-be Beau Bennett. Bennett was a first round pick, 20th overall, of the Penguins in 2010.

Bennett played in just 10 games for the Pioneers this year after a nagging wrist injury required surgery, ending his season in early December. Prior to the surgery, Bennett had 13 points in those 10 games, giving him a career total of 38 points in 47 games.
