After two Stanley Cup seasons, the Pittsburgh Penguins are still looking towards their future. Part of that includes signing a number of young players to entry-level contracts. On September 26, the Penguins added yet another young talent by signing London Knights’ over-ager Sam Miletic to a three-year entry-level contract. Congrats to #OHL @GoLondonKnights OA candidate

Rumors of the Detroit Red Wings trading Riley Sheahan have heated up over the last week. The reigning back-to-back Stanley Cup Champion Pittsburgh Penguins, are the team most linked to Sheahan. Jason Mackey of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette believes that a trade between Pittsburgh and Detroit for Sheahan would be mutually beneficial: Consider that Sheahan will make

The Pittsburgh Penguins have invited 34-year-old forward Jay McClement to training camp. With Matt Cullen and Nick Bonino’s departures, the team is in need of some depth down the middle and a hole to fill on the penalty kill. Penguins general manager Jim Rutherford has taken a patient approach to filling out the roster and may still

Repeating as Stanley Cup champs isn’t easy. In fact, before the Pittsburgh Penguins’ ridiculous 2017 run, it hadn’t been done since before the salary cap era, when the Detroit Red Wings repeated as champions in 1998. Of course, the Wings probably spent around $60 million on their team—adjusted for inflation, that’s about $90 million in

On July 1, 2017, the Pittsburgh Penguins announced they had made a handful of deals, which included the signing of Burnsville, Minnesota native Jarred Tinordi.

The Pittsburgh Penguins locked up the final piece of their blue line last week, signing 25-year-old Brian Dumoulin to a six-year, $24.1 million deal. The contract will keep Dumoulin in Pittsburgh through the 2022-23 season. It also means that five-sixths of the Penguins’ defense is signed for the next three years. Only a couple of

In the wake of the NHL’s first expansion draft in 17 years, the Pittsburgh Penguins found themselves with a large hole to fill in the roster, and Finnish goaltender Antti Niemi found himself a free agent. The Penguins didn’t have to wait long to find a suitable replacement for Marc-Andre Fleury with some NHL tenure to

Defenseman Brian Dumoulin finally signed with the Pittsburgh Penguins on July 24, narrowly avoiding arbitration with a doozy of a contract. The six-year deal not only pays him over $4 million a year but also locks him on with the team for longer than any player other than Sidney Crosby himself. In the 2022-23 season, the

On July 12, forward Josh Archibald signed with the Penguins for a two-year contract at just over the league minimum. The contract isn’t inherently a bad idea. Archibald has shown promise with the Penguins, laying his fair share of determined hits whenever he gets ice time. His puck-handling skills put him on a level with other up-and-coming

The Pittsburgh Penguins aren’t a franchise known for investing a lot in young players. For heaven’s sake, they’ve picked once in the first round over the last five years, yet Pittsburgh has seen quite a few young players emerge onto the NHL scene and make significant impacts the last couple years. Without the contributors of Matt Murray, Jake Guentzel,

Free agency left the depth of the Pittsburgh Penguins’ blue line pretty bare last week, as Trevor Daley, Ron Hainsey and Marc Streit all left in free agency. But heading into 2017-18, general manager Jim Rutherford couldn’t be more confident in his defensive core. Of course, getting back Kris Letang will exude confidence in anybody. After

Justin Schultz signed on for three more years with the Pittsburgh Penguins this Saturday. His contract is no Carey Price-style bank-breaker, but it’s not chump change either. The deal’s $5.5 million average annual value makes Schultz the fifth-highest-paid player on the team, cheaper only than Evgeni Malkin, Sidney Crosby, Phil Kessel and Kris Letang. That’s a $4 million

People who have heard tales of the Dallas Stars’ goaltending woes over the 2016-17 season might be wary of the Pittsburgh Penguins’ Saturday acquisition, but picking up goaltender Antti Niemi in free agency was the best response to the departure of Marc-Andre Fleury that Penguins fans could have hoped for. Getting a player as a

After the Pittsburgh Penguins traded their first-round draft pick (31st overall) in the 2017 draft (along with Oscar Sundqvist) to the St. Louis Blues in exchange for Ryan Reaves and the 51st overall pick, the reigning Stanley Cup champions used that second round selection on defenseman Zachary Lauzon from the Rouyn-Noranda Huskies.

Late in the 2015-16 season, Pittsburgh’s third round (83rd overall selection) of the 2012 NHL Entry Draft, got his shot in the NHL when Marc-Andre Fleury fell to a concussion.

An estimated 650,000 people flocked to the streets of downtown Pittsburgh to get up close and personal with their Stanley Cup Champions.

It’s funny how quickly things move in the world of professional sports. The Pittsburgh Penguins won the franchise’s fifth Stanley Cup on Sunday night, becoming the first group to repeat as champions in the salary-cap era. However, before their victory was even 24-hours old, news broke that goaltender Marc-Andre Fleury did indeed agree to waive his

Late on Sunday night, the Penguins lifted their second Stanley Cup in two years, marking their third in nine years and their fifth as a franchise. If you’re sick of seeing them win, here’s some bad news for you: despite the fact that they exist in the heavily restrictive era of the salary cap, the Penguins
