Penguins General Manager Ray Shero is focused on adding another scoring winger but he is also very interested in adding more grit to his lineup.
The Penguins have been linked to Senators forward Chris Neil for over a month but sources tell Inside Pittsburgh Sports, that the Penguins and Av’s have held discussions about forward Ian Laperriere.
Laperriere, 35, (6-1, 201 lbs) has 17 points this season and the Penguins believe Laperriere couldprovide the kind of physical, abrasive dimension on the third or fourth line that the Penguins have missed since losing Ruutu and Roberts in free agency.
Av’s are seeking a prospect or draft pick for Laperriere
