Pittsburgh Penguins

Matt Hunwick, upon signing with the Pittsburgh Penguins this past summer, seemingly fit the exact mold you’d expect from a depth defenseman under Mike Sullivan.

Few players in the NHL have dealt with a rollercoaster-like career quite like the one Phil Kessel has. From being drafted high in the 2006 NHL Entry Draft to his battle with cancer and subsequent trade to the Toronto Maple Leafs, Kessel’s career started off with as many peaks as it had valleys. After a

Despite winning back-to-back Stanley Cup Championships, the Pittsburgh Penguins are being anything but complacent. Currently occupying the first wildcard spot in the Eastern Conference (and one game out of the third playoff spot in the Metropolitan Division), the Penguins know that they’ll need to play their best hockey all season if they plan on turning

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

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.

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
