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...
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...
Roster moves abound as Pens welcome back Kris Letang, and keep rookie Olli Maatta on NHL roster for remainder of season.
Good Morning friends, family, and Penguins fans alike. It is Friday, and as always is A Great Day For Hockey.
I would like to get every one of you off to a tranquil start today, so please join me in this meditative technique.Close your eyes, look deep inside...
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...
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...
The last time the Penguins faced the New York Islanders was in the 2013 NHL playoffs where the Islanders had basically melted down and succumbed to what was a very lucky Pittsburgh Penguins team. Flash-forward to Friday night and you saw basically the same Islanders team that continues to matchup really well against this team. Hate to say it, but this was about the most complete...
Uhhh what happen here?
Total failure by all players involved. First off, this is why Chuck Kobasew is Chuck Kobasew. Gotta get the puck out. Malkin checked out, Niskanen yikes, and Olli Maatta makes his first really, really bad play.

With the return of defenseman Kris Letang getting closer, the Pittsburgh Penguins made some roster moves today to make room for him and another injured player. The team announced that they re-assigned forwards Chris Conner and Harry Zolnierczyk to Wilkes-Barre/Scranton today. Both players started the season in the AHL and did not record any points with...
Don't be surprised if this game starts a big-time run for the Islanders. Even though they got outshot, a stat that was aided by five fruitless Penguins power plays, the Islanders are starting to become a really tough team again. Don't get us wrong; their defense is still Swiss cheese, and no one has any idea which Evgeni Nabokov is going to show up on any given night...
