Mikael Grandlund is a grand addition to the Penguins’ squad as they look into the playoffs. The Pittsburgh Penguins hold on to the wildcard spot, being three points ahead off Sabres and eight shy of Rangers. Grandlund, 9 goals and 36 points in 58 games, is a top-nine forward who has a versatile range of play. He has speed to play up and slow it down and play a lil bit defense. Additionally, Mikael can be a real help in the wings and the middle.

Mikael is under contract through the 2024-25 season at a cap hit of 5 million dollars. The Granlund cam rethrough as a rejuventaion after the bit of blow in the morning. They traded veteran Teddy Bleuger to Vegas Golden Knights for a prospect and 2024 third-round draft selection.

Tampa Bay Lightning snatched up Tanner Jeannot, also Edmonton notched Mattias Ekholm.
