The Pittsburgh Penguins have been attached to some trade rumors. Here’s a rundown on the names you might hear in the coming weeks.

It’s that time of the year again and with the NHL trade deadline rapidly approaching on February 26, 2018 at 3:00pm Eastern, the Pittsburgh Penguins are in an interesting spot. They’re not quite at the top of the league, but they have been one of the hottest teams since January. The Penguins are currently in second place in the Metropolitan division, but have played a couple more games than some of their division rivals. Additionally, the lineup as currently constructed has been making a good run, minus the recent injuries to Conor Sheary, Patric Hornqvist, Tom Kuhnhackl, and others.

The big question is what the Penguins will do on trade deadline day (if anything). With only a little under $1 million in cap space available at the deadline, the Penguins might need to clear some space to make moves or limit who they bring in. There are a lot of names and a lot of question marks out there, so hopefully this list will help guide you through the craziness or laziness that is the NHL trade deadline day.
