TIOPS Rumor Mill
Penguins head coach Mike Sullivan has recommended to Penguin management that the team bring in winger Kris Versteeg on a professional tryout for training camp, Inside Pittsburgh Sports has learned.
Sullivan a big fan of Versteeg’s skilled game, was part of the Blackhawks organization during the 2014-2015 season.
Versteeg originally signed with SC Bern of National League A in Switzerland but the deal fell through this past weekend due to insurance complications, TSN’s Darren Dreger reported
Versteeg’s agent has told interested teams in the past 24 hours Versteeg prefers to come to an NHL training camp on a PTO. The Versteeg camp received six offers on Tuesday, all Professional Tryout Offers.
The 30 year old forward had 15 goals and 38 points last season, including 2 points in five playoff games with the Kings.
Versteeg’s ability to play left wing particularly interests Sullivan and his staff, sources say.
The Penguins still have room to add a player with a cap hit in the $925,000 range, per a team source.
The Penguins coaching staff is planning to meet again next week to put the final plans in place for training camp. Mike Sullivan will not be with the team for the start of camp due to the World Cup.
Pittsburgh first preseason game is September 27 vs Detroit. [/hide]

Versteeg is a cool player.
Gotta love Depaoli, disappear for a long stretch and then come back with an overwhelming pile of non-sense that isn’t supported by anyone else in the industry.
how about the previous article? nobody wants your patron saint. one more shot at the cup this season with murray in there. after that, murray will be playing in las vegas and then st.backup will ruin things as usual in the playoffs.
Yup… Seen your stupid there and it’s no surprise you carry the narrative here. You would have nothing to talk about related to this game if MAF wasn’t a topic… More proof you’re a brain dead idiot.
Oh wait, there is one other topic.. “Blow it up” hahahaha
it’s the biggest story line of the season. a 6 millon dollar backup who can’t be traded who the pens are stuck with.
Blow it up retard
Simple solution for you…dont watch or comment….we all win!
Why would Murray be playing in Las Vegas, exactly?
Don’t forget shut down all the boards, this biggest reason to come here.
