Tommy Goebel is a great hockey name. I don't know much about him, what kind of prospect is he?

Goebel currently has a minor league deal (Wheeling and Wilkes-Barre). Hopefully the Pens can sign him to an NHL deal after this season.

Prospect-wise, I don't think anyone expected him to be this good because he's 5'7" tall.

Last year, he was a standout at Ohio State and played in 5 AHL games with Rochester (had 5 points).

Goebel started this season in Wheeling, where he led the league in points until his call-up to WBS. (27 points in 20 games)

He currently has 4 points in 5 games with the Baby Pens now.

His best asset is his speed. Possibly quicker than Connor James.

Very underrated player.
