WILKES-BARRE, Pa. — Frank Corrado appeared plenty energized at the Wilkes-Barre/Scranton Penguins' practice facility Saturday morning despite the 72 hectic hours that preceded his arrival.
The 23-year-old defenseman was traded from the NHL's Maple Leafs to Pittsburgh for Steve Oleksy, Eric Fehr and a draft pick Wednesday. That, it turned out, was the easy part. Simply getting to Wilkes-Barre became an issue when his visa had not been approved through early Friday. Finally, at about 4:45 p.m. that same day, he received clearance.
