Top Penguins News

  • Penguins' Emil Larmi: Joins team for Phase 2

    Larmi made the trip to Pittsburgh to link up with the team as part of the Phase 2 skates, Matt Vensel of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports.

    Larmi spent the 2019-20 campaign split between the AHL and ECHL and struggled with a combined 6-10-4 record. Undrafted out of the Finnish league, the netminder has one more season remaining on his entry-level deal to show the organization he can adjust to the North American game. While he will be with the team for the playoffs, the youngster is likely fourth, at best, on the organizational depth chart and won't be getting into any games barring an unfortunate run of injuries.

  • Penguins' John Nyberg: Signs overseas

    Nyberg agreed to terms on a two-year contract with Swedish club Brynas IF on Wednesday.

    Nyberg -- who was acquired by the Pens in a minor-league player swap -- notched four assists and 10 PIM in 16 appearances with AHL Wilkes-Barre/Scranton this season. As a restricted free agent, the blueliner could still be handed a qualifying offer by Pittsburgh in order to retain his rights.

  • Penguins' Jake Guentzel: Taking part in Phase 2 skates

    Guentzel (shoulder) will join his teammates on the ice as part of Phase 2 of the NHL's Return to Play. According to coach Mike Sullivan, "Jake is participating in the informal skates this week with other players. His progress is as anticipated and we're very encouraged where he's at," Seth Rorabaugh of TribLive.com reports.

    The team has consistently indicated that Guentzel could be ready for the 24-team postseason and this latest step would seem to indicate everything remains on track. Once given the all-clear, the winger figures to jump back onto the top line with Sidney Crosby, which could reunite the 2017 "Sid and the Kids" line along with Conor Sheary.

  • Penguins' Nick Bjugstad: Injury details released

    Bjugstad's surgery was to repair a herniated disc, the team announced Wednesday.

    While the timeline for Bjugstad's recovery from this injury is eight weeks, general manager Jim Rutherford told reporters Tuesday that the towering center wouldn't be available for the postseason. It's the second surgery for Bjugstad this season, as he previously underwent core-muscle surgery in November. The fact that this is the second back surgery in Bjugstad's career will no doubt increase speculation that the Penguins will try to buy out his contract once he's medically cleared.

  • Penguins' Nick Bjugstad: Undergoes second surgery

    Bjugstad (lower body) suffered a setback in his recovery and had an additional surgery Tuesday. The center is expected to miss the entirety of the postseason.

    It's just the latest injury woe for Bjugstad, who was limited to a mere 13 contests for the Penguins this season. When originally brought in from Florida via trade, the Minneapolis native was expected to serve as the No. 3 center yet has been unable to stay healthy. Even if fully fit, there were rumblings that the 27-year-old might have to watch from the press box. With one year remaining on Bjugstad's contract, the Penguins could try to buy out his deal, which would save them $3.5 million against the cap in 2020-21.

  • Penguins' Dominik Simon: Set to miss 6-7 months

    Simon underwent shoulder surgery April 29 and is expected to miss 6-7 months.

    Simon was labeled week-to-week back in March prior to the league going on hiatus but will now be unavailable should the regular season or playoffs restart. In fact, even if the NHL pushes back the start date of the 2020-21 campaign into November, the Czech center could still be sidelined for Opening Night. When (if) the NHL resumes play, it's possible the Penguins' open spot in the lineup will go to Jake Guentzel (shoulder), who reportedly is on track to get back onto the ice when the rest of the team does.

  • Penguins' Radim Zohorna: Signs one-year deal

    Zohorna penned a one-year, two-way contract with Pittsburgh on Wednesday.

    Zorhorna celebrated his 24th birthday by inking his first NHL contract after spending parts of the last six seasons playing in the Czech Extraliga. The winger logged 46 games for BK Mlada Boleslav this past year, in which he secured career bests in goals (10) and assists (12). Zohorna will certainly be given a look during training camp this fall but may have to settle for a spot with AHL Wilkes-Barre/Scranton to start the 2020-21 campaign.

  • Penguins' Will Reilly: Lands entry-level deal

    Reilly secured a two-year, entry-level contract with Pittsburgh on Wednesday.

    Reilly just finished off his senior season at R.P.I., where he notched 22 goals and 46 helpers in 139 appearances. Drafted by the Penguins in the seventh round of the 2017 NHL Draft, the 22-year-old blueliner figures to spend the next two years primarily playing in the minors with AHL Wilkes-Barre/Scranton before getting a look at a spot on the 23-man roster.

  • Penguins' Zach Aston-Reese: Ready for play to resume

    Aston-Reese (lower body) is healthy and available if the NHL season picks back up, Mike DeFabo of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports.

    Aston-Reese had returned to full practice with the team prior to the league shutdown and likely would have been ready to go soon. With the extra time off, the Staten Island native figures to rejoin Brandon Tanev and Teddy Blueger on the Pens' fourth line. In 57 appearances this season, the 25-year-old Aston-Reese has notched six goals and seven helpers and could have pushed for the 20-point mark this year.

  • Penguins' Sidney Crosby: Voted player to win one game

    Crosby beat out Connor McDavid in the NHLPA poll, as the one player his peers would want on their team to win one game.

    Additionally, Crosby was also voted as the most complete player. After returning from core muscle surgery, the world-class center racked up 30 points in 24 games and was on pace to reach the 50-point mark for the eighth straight season. If the NHL returns this year, the Nova Scotia native figures to continue providing top-end fantasy value.
