Future Watch: Zach Aston-Reese Rookie Hockey Cards, PenguinsFuture Watch: Zach Aston-Reese Rookie Hockey Cards, PenguinsZach Aston-Reese was signed as a free agent by the Pittsburgh Penguins in 2017. He first competed in the USHL and then he was a highly decorated college player and the hope was, in time, he would contribute at the NHL level.

The Staten Island, New York-born player had two average seasons in 2013-14, and 14-15 with Northeastern University. He had 8 goals and followed that up with 13 goals.

In 2015-16, things started to change. He wore the “A” and he had 14 goals and 43 points in 41 games. It’s hard to be a point-per-game player in college hockey.

In 2016-17, he was a beast. He scored 31 goals and had 63 points in 38 games. He was the Hockey East Player of the Year and a Hobey Baker Finalist. He was named a First-Team All-American as well.

After being signed he got in 10 games with Scranton in the AHL and scored eight points.

The next season the Penguins were shorthanded, and he got in 16 games netting four goals with the big club. And nine playoff games where he scored one point.

Here’s a look at his first NHL goal:

At the start of the 2018-19 season, he started the year with Scranton. In 11 games he had six goals and nine points. He got a call-up and played in 43 games where he had eight goals and 17 points. He broke his hand so that slowed his season down and he got in four playoff games to finish out his year.

Fans can find his rookie cards in 2018-19 Upper Deck Series 1 Hockey, O-Pee-Chee Platinum, SP Game-Used, Synergy and Engrained to name a few.
