THRASHERS SIGN ESPOSITO TO MULTI-YEAR DEAL
The Atlanta Thrashers have come to terms with forward Angelo Esposito on a multiple-year contract.
Terms of the deal were not disclosed.
The 19-year old Esposito was acquired by the Thrashers from the Pittsburgh Penguins in a NHL trade deadline deal last season along with Colby Armstrong, Erik Christensen and a first-round selection in the 2008 NHL Entry Draft (Daultan Leveille) for Marian Hossa and Pascal Dupuis.
The Montreal native has yet to appear in the NHL however he has enjoyed a solid junior career with the Quebec Remparts of the QMJHL with 96 goals and 150 assists in 173 games.
Esposito was originally selected by the Penguins in the first round, 20th overall, of the 2007 NHL Entry Draft.
