Penguins' Carl Hagelin: Still looking for first point
Hagelin was held off the scoresheet for a third consecutive game Monday against the Avalanche.
After exploding offensively following a midseason trade to the Penguins and thriving as a member of the "HBK" line last year, Hagelin's slow start is a little surprising. When Hagelin isn't scoring, he isn't very valuable because he doesn't move the needle in any supporting categories. He sits with an underwhelming five shots on net, three hits and a blocked shot through three games.
