• Beau Bennett’s injury and the Penguins need for skill in their top-6, has made it likely that Kasperi Kapanen will get a nine-game tryout with the Penguins. That is the direction team officials are leaning as of this weekend. “He could be a guy who could jump in for opening night, ” head coach Mike Johnston said after Saturday’s win. Kapanen could play nine games in the NHL before burning a year of his contract and the Penguins could also have him play in the AHL because he doesn’t abide to the CHL transfer rules.
