Penguins Video Q&A: Draft Pick Debate, Trades, & Jack Daniels



From Bridgestone Arena following the first round of the 2023 NHL Draft, Pittsburgh Hockey Now’s Dan Kingerski takes reader questions about a wide range of topics, from why there were no trades on the draft floor for the first time since 2007, the selection of Brayden Yager, and the Pittsburgh Penguins goalie situation.

When will Yager be ready? Will the Penguins re-sign Tristan Jarry? Why did the Nashville Predators give each media member a bottle of Jack Daniels (and why are we more excited by the steak rub)?

Kingerski had specific projections for Yager, which both may exceed Yager’s own timeline but may still disappoint Penguins fans hoping for more. And where is Kingerski’s favorite meal in Nashville?

The latest Q&A is a quick 10-minute ride as fellow media members debated throwing popcorn, but full of analysis of multiple Penguins situations.
