Penguins eyeing Kulemin of Toronto?
The Pittsburgh Penguins, sitting first in the Atlantic Division, could be looking to acquire another winger to play alongside Evgeni Malkin.
It’s believed the Penguins are once again taking a look at Toronto Maple Leafs forward Nikolai Kulemin.
Malkin, who currently leads the Penguins in assists with 10, played alongside Kulemin during the lockout in the KHL.
Last season, the Penguins inquired about Kulemin’s availability, but a deal was never finalized and then-GM Brian Burke reportedly turned down a first-round pick in exchange for him.
In nine games with the Leafs so far this season, Kulemin has recorded one goal and five assists.
