Penguins Rumors: Team Linked to Three Players In Trade Rumors

According to reports from Dan Kingerski of Pittsburgh Hockey Now, the Pittsburgh Penguins have been actively exploring trade options as the NHL trade deadline approaches.

One name that has prominently surfaced in trade discussions is Vladimir Tarasenko, the 32-year-old Russian winger currently playing for the Ottawa Senators.

Tarasenko, known for his offensive prowess, has recorded 13 goals and 19 assists in 44 games this season, making him an attractive target for the Penguins.

His ability to contribute on the power play and his experience as a Stanley Cup champion with the St. Louis Blues in 2019 could provide valuable leadership and scoring depth for Pittsburgh.

Another one of Kingerski's potential trade targets is Victor Olofsson, a left winger who had a standout season with the Buffalo Sabres last year.

While Olofsson's performance has dipped this season with only 12 points in 33 games, his past success, particularly on the power play, makes him an intriguing option for the Penguins.

If they can secure him at the right price, Olofsson could provide much-needed offensive contributions and help address their middle-six forward needs.

Additionally, the Penguins might consider a reunion with former winger Jason Zucker, who now plays for the Arizona Coyotes.

Zucker brings speed and offensive capability to the table, qualities that could boost Pittsburgh's performance.

However, his salary is a potential obstacle, and any potential trade involving Zucker might require Arizona to retain some salary in exchange for another asset. Photo Credit: Rick Scuteri-USA TODAY Sports
