Dutch born, Daniel Sprong’s family moved to a Montreal suburb when he was 7 to aid with his hockey development. At 18, that development seems to be coming along just fine.

That Sprong fell into the Penguins’ lap in the second round of the 2015 draft is nothing short of miraculous.

The Penguins squandered five power plays and turned in another lackluster performance as Jason Spezza and the Dallas Stars overwhelmed Pittsburgh, beating the hometown squad 4-1 on Thursday night at CONSOL Energy Center.

Much as it has been for the entirety of this young season, the Penguins offense was stifled, their defense was lackluster, and star center Sidney Crosby, for the sixth time in seven games this...

Following three straight losses to begin the season, the Pittsburgh Penguins showed up to CONSOL Energy Center on Thursday night determined to end that streak. Two second-period goals, one by Evgeni Malkin and one by rookie Daniel Sprong, helped push the Penguins past the Ottawa Senators 2-0 to earn their first win of 2015-16.

“That’s the look of what we want,” Penguins head coach Mike Johnston said. “We had some great looks, great chances, and we played with energy.”

The NHL season is upon us and the race to defend their Stanley cup has begun for the Chicago Blackhawks. Will Tampa's offense get the Lightning back the top in the east, or is this finally the season the Caps break through?

For the first time this season, the Penguins showed some life offensively and put two shots past Montreal Canadiens goaltender Carey Price. The Habs potted three, however, two by Max Pacioretty, to defeat the Penguins 3-2 on Tuesday night at CONSOL Energy Center.

While Sidney Crosby finally notched his first shot of the season in the first period, and finished with four shots in the game, the team’s captain could not push a shot past Price and the Penguins...

For years, the most tantalizing prospects in the Penguins organization were their much-hyped young corps of defenseman. Those days are over, as most of that group is preparing to make an impact in the NHL.

Highlighted by 2009 and 2011 first-rounders Simon Despres and Joe Morrow, the Pens had a long and deep list of blue-line talent.
