Ex-Penguins Update: October 28, 2017

Here’s a peek at how former Penguins are performing around the league. Stats are updated for games played through Friday, October 27.

Leading the pack are a pair of Vegas Golden Knights—James Neal and David Perron—sandwiched around Los Angeles defenseman Jake Muzzin. Neal tops the Pens alumni in goals (7) and points (10), one point better than Muzzin and three ahead of Perron. Fellow Golden Knight Deryk Engelland leads the way with a plus-8.

With four goals in nine games, New Jersey reclamation project Brian Gibbons has been hands-down the biggest surprise. The diminutive forward hasn’t played in the NHL since 2014-15. Ron Hainsey (six assists) is off to a productive start for Toronto. Chris Kunitz has a goal and two assists for Tampa Bay. Derrick Pouliot has three assists for Vancouver.

Among the goalies, Ottawa’s Mike Condon boasts the lowest goals against average (2.23), followed by Marc-Andre Fleury (2.48). “Flower’s” been out since October 13 with a concussion.

    Rick, this is always a favorite post of mine.

    I think the main players of interest for me changes year to year. This year I’m watching are the guys that just left. Pouliot, Sundqvist, Bonino & Daley. Of the bunch, it looks like only Pouliot has enjoyed a change of scenery. Sundqvist never impressed me and still isn’t. I’m actually rooting for Bonino, he doesn’t seem to be fairing to well, but has earned the paycheck. Daley, well, I thought he was done with how bad he looked at the end of last year, interesting.

      Hey Phil,

      I’m the same as you…I especially like to check on the guys who recently left town to see how they’re doing.

      Agree about Sundqvist. Not that I’m rooting against him, but he’d won a Malkin-esque 35.9 percent of his faceoffs last time I checked.

      Vancouver’s bringing Pouliot along slowly, using him on the third pairing. So far, it seems to be working.

      I read that Bonino was recently put on IR with a leg injury. Hope it’s not related to the broken leg he suffered in the playoffs last spring.

      Rick
