Cole’s Departure Should Pave Way for a Sleeper

Erik Cole departed from the Carolina Hurricanes for the second time in four seasons, choosing to sign with the Montreal Canadiens on July 1st.

Igloo Insider: Pens reclaim Atlantic lead

After being acquired from the Toronto Maple Leafs on Tuesday in exchange for Luca Caputi and Martin Skoula, Alexei Ponikarovsky is expected to make his debut today in a Pittsburgh uniform.
