Ex-Penguins Update: February 19, 2017

Here’s a look at how former Penguins have fared thus far in 2016-17. Stats include games played through Saturday, February 18. Marian Hossa tops the ex-Pens with 20 goals.

Penguins Show Grit in OT Loss

Penguin Call-Ups Doing the Job

Who’s scored eight goals and 12 assists (20 points), registered a plus-11, and leads the team with 64 penalty minutes this season? Stumped? I’ll give you a hint. The answer’s more it than individual. Kind of an on-ice kolkhoz, or collective, if you will. If you guessed “Rec [...]
