Although the Pittsburgh Penguins are expected to undergo some seismic changes this summer, Kyle Dubas hasn’t done anything with the on-ice personnel yet.
No trades. No re-signings. No announcements about any pending free agents who won’t be offered contracts.
He has, however, made one significant addition to the front office, bringing in his former special adviser in Toronto, Jason Spezza, as an assistant GM. And with the NHL draft less than two weeks away and the start of free agency looming, things figure to pick up in the very near future.
Here’s a look back at the past six days of the Pittsburgh Penguins’ offseason:
President of hockey operations Kyle Dubas hasn’t made a player-related move yet. Here’s a look at the odds of exactly what the first of those will be.

A couple of Penguins alums were members of the Vegas supporting cast as the Golden Knights won a Stanley Cup in their sixth year of existence.
Kyle Dubas is expected to reconstruct the Pittsburgh Penguins’ roster over the next few months, but that’s not all he has to fortify for the long-term health of the organization.
The NHL’s buyout window opens. Will Mikael Granlund leave the Penguins through it?
Don’t be surprised if Mike Sullivan has a large influence on the personnel decisions Kyle Dubas will make this summer.
