CRANBERRY, Pa. -- The Penguins stocked up on power forwards in this summer's draft with Samuel PoulinNathan Legare and Judd Caulfield.

Fifth-round pick Caulfield, at 6-feet-3, 207 pounds, is the member of the Penguins' draft class with the most size.

"I'm a big guy," Caulfield told reporters on Day 2 of the Penguins' development camp. "So, I like to be physical when I can, and play down low in the gritty areas and take puck to the net when I can, and play well in the (defensive) zone too."

With six goals and 19 assists in 28 USHL games and six goals and five assists in 36 exhibition games last season with the U.S. National Team Development Program, Caulfield doesn't quite have the scoring touch of other members of his draft class. That'll be one of his biggest focuses when he plays for the University of North Dakota in the fall.
