Penguins Update: The Recchin’ Ball Crashes the Hall

When the Penguins took Mark Recchi in the fourth round of 1988 Entry Draft, it was hardly a lock he’d make the team, let alone go on to a Hall-of-Fame career. Despite scoring 61 goals during his final season of junior hockey, he was passed over by the 21 NHL teams—including the Pens—not once, but three times. Too small, the scouts whispered. [...]

I would imagine coach Mike Sullivan uttered a similar phrase on the Penguins’ be [...]

Penguins, Fans Play a Waiting Game

I don’t know about you. But as a die-hard Penguins fan and professed hockey nut, there’s something about this time of year that keeps my adrenalin pumping and senses tingling.
