The Pittsburgh Penguins are not actively engaged in talks with center Jeff Halpern, Inside Pittsburgh Sports has learned. At least not yet anyway.
However, Halpern has expressed an interest in playing for Pittsburgh.
League sources tell Inside Pittsburgh Sports this afternoon that Halpern’s agent Mike Luit approached the Penguins organization about Halpern in recent days but there has been no follow up from the Penguins to this point.
The Penguins are believed to have some interest in Halpern but the sense from league contacts is that the Penguins are taking a wait and see approach regarding their NHL roster.
The Penguins are current involved in preliminary talks with Kevin Epp, the agent for Rob Niedermayer.
