CPZ Traded to Nashville’s ECHL Affiliate (CONFIRMED)

Rumblings out of Wheeling is that Pittsburgh Penguins prospect Casey Pierro-Zabotel has been traded to the Nashville Predators organization.

I’ve received confirmation that Pierro-Zabotel has been assigned to Cincinnati. The Nailers receive rookies Christiaan Minella and Sam D’Agostino as a result of the trade.

The trade was deemed necessary after a falling out with Penguins brass. It’ll be good for CPZ to get a fresh start with a new organization. He’s been a team player here in Wheeling all year and his attitude and work ethic were much better than they were last year.

I’m sure that having a vocal wife that hates the organization helped with Pittsburgh’s decision to move their once highly touted prospect.

Thanks Levi.
