Dustin Penner is currently out of work. Like many other hockey players he's also one very bored man. While other hockey players have shifted abroad to continue working in their area of expertise, Penner decided to go in a totally different direction.  Meet the newest intern at the Conan show on TBS - Dustin Penner.    I thought @conanobrien would be a lot more talkative in person..... twitter.com/Dustinpenner25… — Dustin Penner (@Dustinpenner25) November 30, 2012 Penner announced through his Twitter account that he found a new place to work during the lockout - on Conan.

Let's see if it pays off for him as he tries to kill some time during the lockout. [follow]
