Prospect Spotlight: Forward Teddy Blueger

Prospect Spotlight: Forward Teddy Blueger

For almost a year, there was some skepticism that the Pittsburgh Penguins could sign their 2012 NHL Draft second-round pick, Teddy Blueger, before June 1 of this year.

Q: Has someone stepped up to replace departed wide receiver Tyler Boyd?

The Pirates left Spring Training in Bradenton with plenty of talent, but there are some lingering concerns as the club gets into the thick of the early-season schedule.

With A.J. Burnett retired and JA Happ off to Toronto, the Pirates were left filling holes in their starting pitching rotation this offseason.

Now that Murray is in the NHL, Jarry will get the majority of the minutes for the Wilkes-Barre/Scranton Baby Pens the rest of the way.

The order of finish may be different in 2016, but the same three clubs should be atop the division.

The six-month journey begins April 3, so it’s only natural to speculate and predict the winners of the major awards for the 2016 season – both individual and organizational.

Whenever a hockey team changes coaches mid-season, it’s fair to look at the season in two parts. The beginning of the 2015-16 Pittsburgh Penguins campaign was the end of the Mike Johnston era and the remainder marked the beginning of Mike Sullivan’s tenure as head coach.
