The 18-year-old led the Penguins at the 2017 Prospects Challenge in Buffalo with four goals and three assists in the three games, including a hat trick against the New Jersey Devils.

The five-foot-10, 194-pound native of North Vancouver, B.C., put up a combined 92 points in the last two seasons with the WHL’s Lethbridge Hurricanes, including 27 goals in 2016-17. Bellerive contributed 14 points in 20 games during Lethbridge’s run to the 2017 WHL championship.

Takeaways:  The Penguins have a few holes to fill, especially the third line center not sure this does anything to address that, but may as well give your prospects a sniff of the big leagues, if only for nine games.  The reality is that it is an entry-level deal with no guarantee of making the team, but it does start the contract ticking.
