Lacing Up: Martin Joins Penguins Coaching Staff

By Joshua Neal; Aug 12, 08:25 AM

Word came down on Friday that the Penguins had made an addition to their coaching staff as we patiently trudge through the offseason. Jacques Martin is a name that has an undeniable association with hockey and coaching – but for Martin, the odd part is not that Martin will be coaching hockey again, but that it will be in an assistant’s role. It seems that he may be one of the most overqualified people in the NHL today. Martin was a head coach most notably with the Ottawa Senators and more recently, the Montreal Canadiens.

The Third Line Is A Good Fit For Bennett

By Matt Paul; Jul 10, 07:29 AM

Beau Bennett projects to be a fulltime winger for Sidney Crosby or Evgeni Malkin before long. But before long might not be the beginning of the 2013-14 season, and that’s not a bad thing.

By Matt Paul; Jun 26, 07:16 AM

Both Craig Adams and Mark Eaton are crafty veteran role players who helped the Penguins win the Stanley Cup in 2009.

Lacing Up: Cooke's Contract

By Matt Paul; Jun 21, 07:23 AM

Matt Cooke has had a tumultuous career with the Penguins, finding himself earning a reputation as one of the dirtiest players in the NHL. But following a 2011 suspension that kept him out of the playoffs, he was forced to change his game or lose his job. Change he did, and now he’s become one of the more valuable third liners in the game.
