Penguins Make Play For Dan Hamhuis

The Penguins acquired Dan Hamhuis’ negotiation rights from Philadelphia on Friday for a third round pick in the 2011 NHL Entry Draft.


The 27-year-old Hamhuis is one of the youngest and most talented defensemen heading to the open market this offseason and the Penguins are making a clear play to tie him up before he hits the open waters of free agency.


The overtures towards Hamhuis seem to be another nail in the coffin of Sergei Gonchar’s time as a Penguin.
