Player Notes

  • GM: Derrick Pouliot having a good summer
    According to Pens GM Jim Rutherford, Derrick Pouliot is having a great summer.

    Advice: "Derrick Pouliot is having a really good summer," Rutherford said. "All the reports are very good on (Pouliot). He's worked very hard. It's his time to jump in there. Last year, he made great strides. It's my understanding he's had a terrific summer, and he's really prepared for camp. I'm expecting Derrick to take a big step forward." The Pens drafted Pouliot eighth overall in 2012, but he hasn't developed as quickly as the team would have hoped. This season, he'll have an opportunity to become a regular on Pittsburgh's blue line. The 22-year-old had seven assists in 22 games last season. Rotoworld.com Today, 6:58 am
  • Zach Parise (back) is 'good to go'
    Zach Parise (back) says he's "good to go" for the World Cup.

    Advice: "I feel really good," Parise said. "All the rehab went and is going well. I’m happy with the progress. The doctors were really happy today. … I’m really happy with it. I’m good to go." Parise dealt with a herniated disk in his back and it forced him to miss the playoffs last year. The 32-year-old had 25 goals and 53 points in 70 games during the 2015-16 season. He should easily surpass those totals if he stays healthy. Rotoworld.com Today, 6:43 am

They still to this day carry themselves in a great way." He replaces David Backes, who went to Boston in free agency. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 8:13 am

  • John Carlson (ankle) is feeling good
    John Carlson says his injured ankle is fully healed.

    Advice: Carlson broke his ankle last February, but says the injury isn't bothering him anymore. "I hurt it, took some time off, tried to come back, it felt good, and then it kind of deteriorated," Carlson said recently. "At that time, we just felt the only option was to get surgery and put some screws in it to basically bulletproof it, make sure that I was back in time for the playoffs and that we were not ever going to have an issue with it again. It’s perfect, has been the whole summer. It’s good." Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 6:12 am
