Okay, so this may not be news but it's amazing and awesome and why we love Evgeni Malkin off of the ice.
Posted within the last hour, Malkin takes a turn posing in his Halloween costume with his very own Dick Grayson (aka Robin). If anyone is willing to translate we'd be more than happy to give credit where it's due.
If you don't already follow Geno...
It was no secret that the Pittsburgh Penguins weren’t happy
with the way the team exited the playoffs against Boston. The collapse was a colossal embarrassment. My
Gram used to say, “To whom much is given, much is expected.” The Pens entered
the Boston series last season with an envious wealth of talent but failed to
live up to their potential. The inevitable wave of...
The Pittsburgh Penguins 2012 first round draft pick, Olli Maatta, will remain with the team, general manager Ray Shero announced Thursday. “Based on his play, we believe this is the best decision for Olli and the Penguins,” Shero said. “We want to thank Mark and Dale Hunter and the London Knights for their patience and understanding.” The 19-year-old
Pittsburgh Penguins will keep rookie defenseman Olli Maatta.
The Penguins could have sent the 19-year-old Maatta back to his junior team, a move that would have pushed back the clock on Maatta's NHL service time. Instead, general manager Ray Shero decided to keep Maatta in Pittsburgh, calling it the best decision for Maatta and the Penguins.
Maatta has been solid during Pittsburgh...
If you were to ask Penguin fans to tell you the first player who comes to mind when they hear the word “dependable”, many I am sure would think of offensive minded players like Sidney Crosby, Evgeni Malkin, and so forth. But often the word “dependable” in the context of hockey can often be skewed because offensive stats are the first thing to pop into the minds of many. One...

The Pittsburgh Penguins recalled forward Jayson Megna from their American Hockey League affiliate Wilkes-Barre Scranton Penguins today.
Megna has 5 points (3 G; 2A) in six games this season for Wilkes-Barre/Scranton. Last season, Megna tallied 12 points in 56 games as a rookie for WBS.
Megna played one season at the University of Nebraska-Omaha...
A funny thing happened at CONSOL Energy Center last weekend. Squared off against the Vancouver Canucks in a Saturday matinee, the Penguins' Marc-Andre Fleury surrendered a tally that conjured up images of his recent playoff ghosts. After the harmless looking shot from center ice floated on net, rolled up and over Fleury's chest and trickled over the goal line, the...
Pittsburgh Penguins forward James Neal will remain out for at least two more weeks, as reported by Joe Yerdon of NBC Sports.
The 26-year-old winger was placed on injured reserve on October 15 with an upper-body injury. Neal has only played in one game this season, playing in the team’s season-opener against the New Jersey Devils on October 3. He started the day as a game-time decision...

Paul Martin can’t keep the puck in at the offensive zone blue line, takes it back to center ice, and then gives it away at the offensive blue line to the Avs. As this happens...
The Penguins are keeping Olli Maatta general manager Ray Shero said Thursday.
Maatta 19 will remain with the team instead of being returned to his junior club the London Knights. The Tribune-Review first reported this decision on Sunday.
By playing in a 10th NHL game on Friday against the New York Islanders at home Maatta will have this season count as the first of his entry level...
Sidney Crosby left little doubt about who remains the best player from Cole Harbour, Nova Scotia.
That's fine by Nathan MacKinnon and the Colorado Avalanche. At the moment, they'll settle for one of the best records in the NHL.
Jean-Sebastien Giguere turned aside 34 shots and the surprising Avalanche edged the Pittsburgh Penguins 1-0 on Monday night to improve to 8-1 on...
In today's installment of Chris' Corner I cover last night's loss to the Avs and explain why no one needs to over react. I also discuss the questions surrounding whether or not Olli Maatta stays in Pittsburgh or heads back to London. I also preview this weekends Pens games vs the Islanders and Leafs and close by talking about my one big concern for the Penguins right now!
Via the Pens:
The Pittsburgh Penguins have re-assigned forwards Chris Conner and Harry Zolnierczyk to Wilkes-Barre/Scranton of the American Hockey League (AHL), it was announced today by executive vice president and general manager Ray Shero.
Marc-Andre Fleury has started the season on a tear. His only loss came on Monday night, when his high-powered offense was circumcised. With everyone hoping Fleury's post-season meltdowns are behind him, it's encouraging that he's off to the hottest start of his career.
While examining MAF's career, we decided to check out how the Pens' starting goalies have...
First thing's first; if you had the first overall pick and skipped on Sidney Crosby, you're probably kicking yourself. Crosby has looked as good as ever and leads the league in goals and assists. Patrick Marleau is someone who has been impressive to start this year with at least a point in every game and he has scored a goal in every game but one this year. Marc-Andre...
