PITTSBURGH PENGUINS
SUMMARY
Having two of the top 10 prospects in the league in Matt Murray (1) and Jake Guentzel (8) will help, but after those two, there's a lack of high end prospects in the system, and given they are coming up on our NHL games maximum, the Pens system won't be this high for awhile.

UP
Tristan Jarry continues to progress and looks like the real deal when it comes to being a potential NHL #1 goalie. The problem, Matt Murray has the crease locked down. Expect Jarry to be dealt at some point this year and return the Pens some help as they continue to look for more Cups.

DOWN
Connor Hall seemingly doesn't have the offensive abilities to be a legit top 4 option. He still could be a depth NHL defenseman, but his ineffectiveness with the puck is likely to hinder him as he moves forward.

WHO TO WATCH
Kasper Bjorkvist struggled offensively as a freshman last year, and will need to pick his production up to get back on the radar as a potential top 6 prospect. He's shown ability against his age group, but needs to produce against older players
