Baby Penguins Update: January 8, 2017

Penguins Update: Fleury Revival

There’s a revival of sorts going on in the ‘Burgh these days. One involving a slender 32 year old from Sorel, Quebec with dark, flashing eyes and a shy, ready smile.

Indeed, the Pens closed out 2016 with a bang, clipping Atlantic Division leader Montreal, 4-3, courtesy of a sparkling 37-save effor [...]

Indeed, since replacing injured defenseman Trevor Daley on December 17, Oleksy’s added some much-needed spice to the Pens’ backline. Through his first five regular-season games wear [...]
