Penguins claim Pyatt off waivers
The Pittsburgh Penguins on Thursday claimed forward Taylor Pyatt off waivers from the New York Rangers

The Pittsburgh Penguins claimed veteran left wing Taylor Pyatt off waivers from the New York Rangers on Thursday.

Pyatt had one assist, 10 penalty minutes and a minus-9 rating in 22 games this season before the Rangers placed him on waivers Wednesday.

The past two seasons in New York Pyatt, 32, had six goals and six assists in 70 regular-season games and two goals and two assists in 12 Stanley Cup Playoff games, all in 2013.

Taken by the New York Islanders with the eighth pick of the 1999 NHL Draft, Pyatt has 136 goals and 276 points in 825 NHL regular-season games with the Islanders, Buffalo Sabres, Vancouver Canucks, Phoenix Coyotes and Rangers. His best season was 2006-07 with Vancouver, when he had a career-best 23 goals.

The Penguins host the Rangers Friday night at Consol Energy Center.

Quote of the Day

Not only is it a great idea, but if you don't [start using analytics] you're going to fall behind. You have to be on the cutting edge. It was [Arizona Coyotes assistant general manager] Darcy Regier who said, 'If you didn't invent it, you have to be the second- or third-best copier, because if you're fourth or fifth you've got no chance.'
