Penguins Pregame: Evgeni Malkin, Ron Hainsey out, Derrick Pouliot recalled and Patric Hornqvist a game-time decision versus Devils

Kris Letang, Bryan Rust and Olli Maatta skated today, but another key Penguins player won't appear against the Devils.

Morning Skate Memo: No Malkin, Hainsey for Pens against Devils

I wonder how Penguins coach Mike Sullivan performs in games of Jenga. That’s essentially the task Sullivan has faced for a few weeks now: He must keep the Penguins upright as injuries slowly pull one counted-upon piece after another out of the lineup. Friday’s morning skate brought more bad news: Center Evgeni Malkin will miss […]

Penguins Ron Hainsey sidelined with upper-body injury

PITTSBURGH — The depleted Pittsburgh Penguins defense has taken another hit. Coach Mike Sullivan says defenseman Ron Hainsey is week-to-week with an upper-body injury.The Penguins acquired the 35-year-old Hainsey just before the trade deadline. Hainsey has one assist in 10 games since joining Pittsburgh. The Penguins called up Derrick Pouliot from their AHL affiliate in Wilkes Barre/Scranton ahead of Friday nights game against New Jersey to fill in for Hainsey.Pittsburgh is already missing injured defensemen Kris Letang, Olli Maatta and Trevor Daley, though all three are expected back by...

Mark Madden: Penguins should go with playoff-tested defensemen, if they're available

If it comes down to playing Trevor Daley, Olli Maatta, Ron Hainsey and Mark Streit, the choice should be the former two. Daley and Maatta are Cup-tested, and that counts even more having won it just last year with the…

Penguins’ Suddenly Aged Blue Line

Earlier, I expressed some concern regarding who the Pittsburgh Penguins might have been targeting at the trade deadline. Many have lauded the acquisitions of Mark Streit and Ron Hainsey, and until now they’ve played well enough. But could that come to an abrupt end? Blue Line Suddenly Aging Prior to Streit (age 39) and Hainsey […]

Morning Skate Memo: Streit to debut, Sheary likely to return against Lightning

  Only a week ago, the Penguins found themselves fretting about a shortage of options on the blueline and, to a lesser extent, among their top-six forwards. Oh how times have changed. The infusion of Ron Hainsey and Mark Streit on the back end — not to mention the call-up of Derrick Pouliot, apparently an ongoing […]

Mark Madden: Penguins' new defensemen had better be better than merely experienced

Mark Madden: Penguins' new defensemen had better be better than merely experienced

Which Penguins will sit down with Mark Streit, 39, and Ron Hainsey, 35, and tell them what it takes to win a Stanley Cup?

Morning Skate Memo: Pens won’t hide Hainsey in D-man’s debut

It’ll take likely no more than 10 or 15 minutes in Saturday’s Stadium Series game at Heinz Field to determine how much trust Penguins coach Mike Sullivan already places in blueline addition Ron Hainsey. There’s no shortage of minutes for Sullivan to distribute to his defensemen with Kris Letang (upper-body injury), Olli Maatta (hand) and […]

New Pens defenseman Ron Hainsey gets first shot at the Cup

In his 14 seasons in the NHL, Ron Hainsey has never played in a postseason game. That should change this spring with the Penguins, who acquired the veteran defenseman this week.

Why Your Trade was(n’t) Stupid: it set the price for depth defenders

WYTS is back, but the only trade was smart for both teams. per @Real_ESPNLeBrunTRADE:To #Pens:D Ron Hainsey (50% retained)To #Canes:F Danny Kristo2017 2nd RD pickhttps://t.co/pOmLyOX15A — CapFriendly (@CapFriendly) February 23, 2017 Ron Hainsey is a dependable, unexciting third pairing defender who is never going to surprise anyone with his play. And the Hurricanes got a second round pick for him. They also got a good AHL player who is having a bad year, so perhaps he’ll help the farm team too. This is good for the Penguins who have major injury troubles on defence. They did...
