Looking at how ‘old’ teams actually perform in the NHL

The Pittsburgh Penguins were already one of the oldest teams in the NHL, and that average age has only managed to increase this offseason.

With the re-signings of Evgeni Malkin, Kris Letang, Bryan Rust, and Rickard Rakell, as well as the trades and free agent signings that sent out John Marino and Mike Matheson in exchange for Jeff Petry, Ty Smith and Jan Rutta, the Penguins are looking like a team that is going to have an average over 30 for this season.

As of this moment there are 11 players on the roster already 30 or older, and two more that are 29 years old.
