WILKES-BARRE, Pa. — A Sunday afternoon game in Providence was somewhat of a homecoming for Wilkes-Barre/Scranton Penguins defenseman David Warsofsky. He grew up an hour away in Marshfield, Mass., then, after finishing his career at Boston University and being a fourth-round NHL draft pick of the Blues, he played parts of five seasons with the AHL Bruins.
He made himself right at home.
“Any time you get to play in front of family and friends, it’s always enjoyable,” Warsofsky told DKPittsburghSports.com Thursday at the Penguins’ practice facility. “(I) had a great experience there. Nothing but good things to say about the organization.”
In taking that trip down memory lane, one begins to understand how Warsofsky, now 26, developed into an All-Star caliber player and one of the best offensive defensemen in the AHL.
