Didn’t I *just* say this shouldn’t be all Pens and whatnot? Well sometimes Foxy Friday writes itself.
26-year old Joe Vitale is from the Lou, and we assume he’s proud. (That’s St. Louis for anyone who didn’t have kitchen dance parties with me and Chuck in 1999.) He went to Northeastern University (hi Boston!) where he majored in journalist. Joe, if you’re reading, we take guest bloggers.
Joe plays Center and has 2 G/4 A in 32 games this season. His current contract runs through the end of this season. Joe has two NHL fights, and according to HockeyFights.com, he won them both. Here’s one vs. the Bruins where he takes his helmet off for you [link].
The Pens need to get more interviews for Joe, but based off this old one [link], his favorite movie is Pirates of the Caribbean, he loves the Beatles and he eats a banana before every game. That’s kind of a weird superstition, and Joe knows it.
