Brassard Kessel combination that is still in early stages of growth
« เมื่อ: 13 มี.ค., 18, 14:45 »
The Penguins had an off day on Thursday so we didn’t learn anything too new about injuries suffered by forwards Bryan Rust and Dominik Simon from the game against the Flyers. One not so encouraging sign though is that the Pens dipped into Wilkes Barre to bring up forward Josh Jooris. From a team release

The Pittsburgh Penguins have recalled forward Josh Jooris on an emergency basis from the Wilkes Barre/Scranton Penguins of the American Hockey League https://www.penguinspitfans.com/kris-letang-jersey-c-7.html , it was announced today by executive vice president and general manager Jim Rutherford.

Jooris, 27, was acquired by the Penguins from the Carolina Hurricanes at the NHL Trading Deadline in exchange  https://www.penguinspitfans.com/olli-maatta-jersey-c-6.html   for Greg McKegg. The fourth year veteran played in 31 NHL games with the Hurricanes earlier this season, producing six points 3G 3A .

The 6 foot 1, 197 pound Jooris has appeared in three games with WBS since his acquisition, scoring once. His lone tally with WBS was a big one Conor Sheary Jersey , as it came in the final minute of regulation, forcing overtime, on March 4 in Milwaukee.

Overall, the Burlington, Ontario native has played in 204 career NHL games with Calgary https://www.penguinspitfans.com/derrick-pouliot-jersey-c-5.html , the New York Rangers, Arizona and Carolina. In those contests, Jooris has 23 goals, 32 assists and 55 points.

Jooris originally joined the Calgary organization as an undrafted free agent following a three year collegiate career at Union College.

As an “emergency loan” presumably one if not both Rust and Simon will be out for a while, though more details could be forthcoming as soon as today. Given that Rust’s head was driven into the boards and he left the game with an apparent concussion/head injury, it stands to reason he isn’t going to be playing in the very near future.

That’s a tough break for Pittsburgh since Rust has been so solid recently. He returned from an injury in last January and put up 15 points 6g 9a in the last 19 games and fit in well either with Sidney Crosby or more recently on the uber hot Evgeni Malkin line.
However, all hope isn’t lost. By virtue of the Derick Brassard trade the Pens basically had 11 forwards that could be classified as “top 9” caliber players. As a result, for these past couple games guys like Conor Sheary and Riley Sheahan were skating on the 4th line.

That depth will obviously work in the Pens favor with Rust most likely out for a bit. Sheary broke a 15 game goal less drought by scoring two huge goals against the Flyers. Even better, he dd it with Crosby. In springs 2016 and 2017 we saw Sheary play some great hockey on Crosby’s line and this could be the chance for the winger to reclaim that role and salvage an up and down season.

Another interesting aspect to watch will be Sheahan. With the recall of Jooris, the Pens probably could/should employ a more grinding type of 4th line with him, Carter Rowney and Tom Kuhnhackl. This would open up Sheahan to move to left wing and play on a line with Brassard and Phil Kessel. In recent games situationally the Pens have been using Sheahan a little more on the wing, especially late in contests where they might need a little more defense or in case a center gets kicked out of the faceoff circle.

Sheahan’s skill set isn’t perfectly tailored to the wing, his shot takes too long to get off and he’s not much of a goalscorer, but given the all around ability he has it does present an interesting style and option to add to a Brassard Kessel combination that is still in early stages of growth.

The Pens will miss Rust for however long he may be out this time, but they still have the depth to run what should be three very impressive offensively minded lines that should be able to generate scoring chances on any given shift.

Notice something funny about the upcoming schedule?
