The Pittsburgh Penguins activated forward Ryan Poehling from injured reserve Sunday, according to a team tweet. Poehling had been absent from the lineup with an undisclosed injury since early this month, and he’s been limited to 31 out of 45 games this season overall as he’s been in and out of the lineup with various minor injuries. He has four goals and four assists for eight points in those games, and he’s played decent defensively in that time as well.
It’s been a trying few weeks for the Pittsburgh Penguins. The Pens have been contending with injuries to several key players, negatively impacting their on-ice competitiveness. Pittsburgh got their starting goaltender back on Friday, as Tristan Jarry made his first start in nearly three weeks. Now, they’ll get a...
The Pittsburgh Penguins activated forward Ryan Poehling from injured reserve today, according to a team tweet. Poehling had been absent from the lineup with an undisclosed injury since early this month, and he’s been limited to 31 out of 45 games this season overall as he’s been in and out of the lineup with various minor injuries. He has four goals and four assists for eight points in those games, and he’s played decent defensively in that time as well.
Teddy Blueger’s return from injury was supposed to mark the return of the Penguins’ stringent penalty kill unit, and for a while, it did. When Blueger made his season debut on Nov. 15 against Toronto, it signaled the beginning of a seven-game stretch in which the Penguins didn’t allow a power-play goal in 17 opportunities, the only team in the NHL to not permit a score over that period of time. The demonstrated improvement was a far cry from Pittsburgh’s start to the season that consisted of giving up at least one extra-attacker goal in nine of the 2022-23 campaign’s first 12 contests.
The Pittsburgh Penguins have made a couple of curious moves today, clearing several roster spots at the same time. Mark Friedman has been assigned to the minor leagues, while Ryan Poehling and Tristan Jarry have been placed on injured reserve. Each of their stints are retroactive to their most recent appearance – Dec. 30 for Poehling and January 2 for Jarry.
The Pittsburgh Penguins return to a normal lineup formation despite no Ryan Poehling or Mark Friedman.
Injuries may be mounting for the Pittsburgh Penguins, but Ryan Poehling is likely back in the lineup.

An undisclosed injury has sidelined Poehling for the past three games. Speaking after an optional morning skate Friday, Poehling indicated the ailment...
The day after logging over 27 minutes of ice time, Kris Letang was absent from practice, but it wasn’t because of a maintenance day. Coach Mike Sullivan said the longtime Penguins blueliner is being evaluated for a lower-body injury, which caused him to miss the team’s Thursday afternoon practice at UPMC Lemieux Sports Complex. Letang missed five games in late November and early December while recovering from the second stroke of his career but had played in each of the Penguins’ last eight contests, including Wednesday night’s 5-4 overtime loss to the Detroit Red Wings.
While we touched on Ryan Poehling’s possible trajectory over the weekend and what his future could hold with the Pittsburgh Penguins, there’s another piece of the puzzle too. It’s what went wrong for him in Montreal, or what never happened to allow the team that drafted him in the first round just a few years ago basically make him a throw in for a trade and be fine with walking away from him.
The Montreal Canadiens were finally able to grant Jeff Petry his wish and trade him to a team based in the United States. The veteran defender wanted out since early last season to be closer to his family, and general manager Kent Hughes swing a deal to send him to Pennsylvania.
“From Day 1 since I’ve got here, it’s been a special place and it’s a privilege to put on that uniform of so much history. I’ve learned that over my four-and-a-half years so far how much pride I take to put on that uniform every day.”
The Montreal Canadiens shed some salary — and one of their better players — when they dealt veteran defender Jeff Petry on Saturday along with forward Ryan Poehling to the Pittsburgh Penguins in exchange for defenseman Mike Matheson and a 2023 fourth-round draft pick. Petry is scheduled to...
