Unfortunately, injuries are a very large part of each NHL season. It is inevitable for players to go down while flying around a sheet of ice surrounded by solid boards, all while standing on a 2.8 millimetre thick piece of steel. Of course, among those many injuries, some will find the superstars of the league. Injuries that could present a...

The Pittsburgh Penguins might have a winning record, but they're not playing solid hockey. Through 17 games, the Penguins are 10-7-0 and are 7-3 in their last ten games.

Pittsburgh Penguins GM Jim Rutherford has been arguably the most active General Manager in the league since taking over in Pittsburgh. In fact, he has completed nine trades in his short tenure at the helm, one of which being the blockbuster that brought Phil Kessel to the Penguins in July. And, with all indications pointing to Rutherford wanting...
