NHL Rumors: Penguins Pending Free Agents … Bruins and Krug

Rob Rossi of The Athletic: Both Alex Galchenyuk and Justin Schultz will be unrestricted free agents after this season. Restricted free agents for the Pittsburgh Penguins will include Matt Murray, Marcus Pettersson, Jared McCann, Dominik Kahun and Dominik Simon.

That group of seven carries a cap hit this season at just under $18 million but that could climb to $31 million next season if all are brought back.

Penguins GM Jim Rutherford has said that he’s “probably not” going to negotiate in-season with Schultz and Murray.
