Fantasy Update

Feb 24, 2017

Last season’s run to a Stanley Cup win taught the Pittsburgh Penguins the value of goalie depth during the playoffs. Pittsburgh GM Jim Rutherford spoke with NHL.com on Thursday ahead of the March 1 trade deadline to address the elephant in the Penguins’ room: Fleury’s future with the team. With two years left on his contract and Matt Murray entrenched as Pittsburgh’s starter, Fleury’s time with the Penguins is short anyway.

Of course there were penguins at the Stadium Series game

Like, the actual bird version. What’s the point of hockey without any penguins involved? ... Well, I mean, Pittsburgh Penguins are a given. But the actual animal is often associated with ice, so you’ve gotta think they’d be naturals at the game (or, at the very least, enjoy being there). So of course, there were Penguins, and then there were penguins. Featuring Antonio Brown, Matt Murray waddling just like a penguin, actual penguins!!, fireworks, a little fall oh no (but he’s used to ice, so he got right back up) and, um, a very convenient cutaway when one of the penguins decides...

Penguins vs Blue Jackets: Tired Pittsburgh falls in OT

The Penguins finish up a back-to-back with an admirable effort, but fall in OT in an intense game on the road to the Columbus Blue Jackets Pregame Lots of changes for the Penguins at every level from last game last night.

Matt Murray is leading this season’s rookie goalie class - of course

Matt Murray is leading this season’s rookie goalie class - of course

Technically he’s still a rookie, which is wild to think about. It’s easy to forget Matt Murray is technically a rookie. But he only played 13 games in the regular season in 2015-16. The 21 playoff games - seriously, he won more playoff games than he played regular season games - don’t count towards rookie status. And so: Murray, Stanley Cup Champion, is a rookie this season. It goes without saying that he’s the best rookie goalie this season, too. Juuse Saros and Jared Coreau are the only other rookie goalies who have played more than 10 games this season; Coreau is older than...

Matt Murray is auctioning off one of his World Cup of Hockey sticks for charity

Matt Murray is auctioning off one of his World Cup of Hockey sticks for charity

Specifically, he’s helping the humane society in Thunder Bay. As you may have heard, Matt Murray has a Newfie puppy, Beckham. So he’s clearly a dog lover; you definitely don’t get a breed as big as that if you can’t handle them. Murray is also from Thunder Bay, whose humane society needs some help after rescuing a lot of dogs as of late. So he’s doing his part to help out: auctioning off one of the sticks he played with when he was on Team North America for the World Cup of Hockey, with all proceeds going to their humane society. FRIENDS!! Recently, our local humane society...

The Penguins are looking to deal Marc-Andre Fleury before deadline, per report

The duo of Fleury and Matt Murray has been “difficult” to keep happy as the season goes on, according to GM Jim Rutherford. The Pittsburgh Penguins have quite a predicament on their hands. The Penguins have two very competent goaltenders in Marc-Andre Fleury and Matt Murray and the NHL has an expansion draft coming up in a little less than five months.

Matt Murray has a Newfoundland puppy, and he has an Instagram

And this is a BIG puppy. Through the past two months or so of his rookie NHL season, Matt Murray has been caring for a young one at home.
