Instead of going up the coast, he thought, they should visit each of the cities the Penguins had a playoff series in. He mentioned the idea to Clever, who agreed, even though she isn't the biggest sports fan.</p></div>Michelle CrechioloMon, 14 Aug 2017 16:33:03 +0000Getting to Know: Zach Aston-Reesehttps://www.nhl.com/penguins/news/getting-to-know-zach-aston-reese/c-290625098<div class="article-item__preview"><p>The Penguins signed forward Zach Aston-Reese as a highly-coveted undrafted free agent out of Northeastern.
