Once in a while a player will switch jersey numbers. This is usually done to accommodate new arrivals to the team. One such instance is Penguins left-winger Tanner Glass, who wore the number 10 until Pittsburgh acquired Brenden Morrow. Morrow was number 10 on the Dallas Stars, so Glass decided he would switch to number 15 to open up the jersey number so Morrow could wear it.
Nice gesture, right? Well, what about all those fans who went out and bought Tanner’s jersey with 10 on the back and sleeves?
Glass sent this tweet out to his fans:
Any #Pens fans with "GLASS 10" jerseys that want to switch to "15"- Head to Consol PensGear and I'll pay for the switch. First 15 are on me!

You can say what you want about the Pittsburgh Penguins, but this is a class move all the way. Most people wouldn’t even take into consideration what a jersey switch means to their fans who went out and bought their previous jersey. ...
BEST OF MAXIM
Going into trade deadline day today you would be hard pressed to find a deeper roster than that of the Pittsburgh Penguins. Their first two lines could fill an All-Star team. Penguins GM Ray Shero added yet another player to the Penguins and once again did it without losing a roster player only a conditional 6th or 7th round pick.

During Henirk Lundqvist's save on Evgeni Malkin's shootout attempt it looked like he tweaked a hamstring, which he addressed after the game...
"I think I pulled my hamstring a little bit, but it's fine, I think. I don't know what happened. It just hurt...It felt better after a minute or two, so hopefully it's nothing."

The Pittsburgh Penguins grabbed Jussi Jokinen from Carolina at the trade deadline, hopeful that the smooth-skating forward could fill in while superstar Sidney Crosby recovers from a broken jaw.
Jokinen certainly borrowed a page from Crosby's flair for the dramatic in his Penguins debut, scoring in regulation and then adding the only tally in the shootout as Pittsburgh edged...
On Wednesday night the Pittsburgh Penguins struggled mightily during their game against the New York Rangers. Penguins goalie Marc-Andre Fleury was clearly frustrated with the lack of help he was getting and when he went to slam his stick against the boards, the stick actually got caught between the boards and the glass. This obviously made him even more upset because he had...

Three points out of four in the home and home against Pittsburgh? Sign me up!!
Still, tough luck loss tonight, Rangers absolutely deserved to win. Only Fleury prevented tonight's game, especially in the third period, from turning tonight into a repeat of...
There was a collision in front of Fleury late in the second period. He somehow lost his glove. But that didn't phase him:
Almost wish a puck would have got through to see him make a save with his barehand. But that also could have meant a broken hand, so glad it didn't happen.
As a rookie hopeful fresh out of the University of Minnesota-Duluth, Pat Boutette received a baptism by fire … from his own teammate. While trying to make an impression during a Toronto Maple Leafs training camp he engaged in several fights with NHL penalty king Dave “Tiger” Williams.
The scrappy youngster passed his first test. Boutette’s spirited play earned a spot on the...
As if the Pittsburgh Penguins needed another way to win games. Today the Penguins have acquired Carolina Hurricanes shootout specialist Jussi Jokinen for a conditional draft pick. As part of the deal, the Hurricanes will most likely retain some of Jokinen’s salary. If they didn’t have to, the Penguins would have likely just claimed [...]
It simply may be a coincidence that the Pittsburgh Penguins have dropped both games without injured captain Sidney Crosby following their impressive 15-game winning streak.
The New York Rangers, meanwhile, hope it's more than just happenstance that they played so well with their newest additions.

The Rangers dropped a tough one to the Pittsburgh Penguins tonight, 2-1 in a shootout. The play of Marc-Andre Fleury was the only reason this game wasn’t a repeat of Wednesday night. A truly sensational performance. While the loss stings, securing 3 out of a possible 4 points in a home and home with the Pens is more than we could have hoped at the...
Dallas Stars president James Lites has come under fire before and he will come under fire again.
That has been the nature of his tenure with the team.
Over the past week, he has engineered a trio of trades that have not sat well with the fan base that he must please.
