NHL Rumors: Pittsburgh Penguins, and the Philadelphia Flyers

Dan Kingerski of Pittsburgh Hockey Now: The Pittsburgh Penguins have had trouble filling their third-line center role since Nick Bonino headed to the Nashville Predators in free agency.

Since Bonino’s departure in 2017, the Penguins have tried Greg McKegg, Riley Sheahan, Derrick Brassard, Jared McCann, Nick Bjugstad, then Jared McCann.

The free agent market is a little thin this offfseason. They’ll be looking for someone that can record 30-plus points, is defensively-responsible, hopefully can kill some penalties and in the $3 to $4 million range or less.
