PENGUINS RUMORS & GOSSIP

Penguins’ Schultz Return Possible; Cullen Update

As expected, the Penguins decided not to extend a qualifying offer to defenseman Justin Schultz making him an unrestricted free agent. It was the right move as he was a bottom-pairing defenseman while in the lineup, and frequently a healthy scratch. Not to mention that the 25-year-old would have made nearly $4 million if tendered.

Little Wiggle Room for Penguins with Free Agency Looming

Why fix what’s not broken? The Penguins are heading into the off-season with their championship-winning roster almost set to return. That’s a good thing for them, because their players’ salaries won’t create a lot of wiggle room for the Pens’ general manager Jim Rutherford to work with on the market. There are, however, a few considerable holes to address. Due to their...

The Steady Presence of Brian Dumoulin

Coming into the 2015/16 NHL season, Brian Dumoulin’s NHL resume consisted of 260 minutes of even-strength hockey. Of those 260 minutes, only 65 came in the Stanley Cup playoffs via a short-lived first round flame out against the New York Rangers. Dumoulin’s minutes in that first-round loss were soft and sheltered. He was deployed primarily against the Rangers 4th line with...

The Pittsburgh Penguins Win Franchise’s Fourth Stanley Cup

Well okay. The Pittsburgh Penguins just won their fourth Stanley Cup in franchise history by beating the San Jose Sharks in six games.

Sidney Crosby handed Cup to Trevor Daley for great reason

When Sidney Crosby was presented with the Stanley Cup after the Pittsburgh Penguins defeated the San Jose Sharks Sunday night, he skated around with it for a few moments before handing it off to defenseman Trevor Daley, a somewhat unexpected recipient.

Penguins’ HBK line dominates the Stanley Cup playoffs

Though Sidney Crosby won the Conn Smythe Trophy for the Pittsburgh Penguins, you could very easily make the argument that the team’s HBK Line were the real postseason MVPs. The HBK Line, comprised of Carl Hagelin, Nick Bonino and Phil Kessel, combined for 56 points in the postseason, including 11 during the Stanley Cup Finals. Here’s their individual breakdown: – Hagelin...
