PITTSBURGH (93-7 The FAN) – After coming to the Pittsburgh Penguins at the trade deadline last year from the Florida Panthers, there wasn’t a whole lot known about what the future might hold for Marcel Goc with his new team, but on the opening day of free agency he signed a one-year $1.2 million deal with the Pens.

A day later, Goc joined Starkey and Mueller on Sportsradio 93-7 The FAN to talk about what it means to him to come back.

“The time I was there at the end of the season, I thought the organization was very good,” Goc said. “Obviously we didn’t end the season the way we wanted to, but I think we can have a lot of success there in Pittsburgh.”

Speaking of the way the season ended, former Penguins Defenseman Brooks Orpik has recently spoken out about why the team fell short in the playoffs and citing the outside pressure seeping into the locker room. Goc talked about that pressure and if he noticed it affecting the team.

“Obviously there was pressure,” Goc said. “The team did really well during the regular season and there was a lot of high expectations, not just from outside, from us as well, but I think every team has to deal with that. I came from Florida and I think you could notice that there was a little more pressure from outside coming in in Pittsburgh but that’s something you have to deal with in a big hockey market like Pittsburgh.”
