Penguins going with youth, won't re-sign F Guerin @NHLdotcom

PITTSBURGH (AP) -The Pittsburgh Penguins won't re-sign forward Bill Guerin, preferring instead to give several young forwards a chance to play on one of their top lines.

The 39-year-old Guerin scored 21 goals last season and had four more during the playoffs while often playing on Sidney Crosby's line. He has 429 goals and 427 assists in 1,263 career games with eight teams, starting with New Jersey in the 1991-92 season.

Guerin was dealt to Pittsburgh during a trading deadline deal on March 2, 2009. He had 26 goals in 95 regular season games and 11 goals in 35 playoff games, helping Pittsburgh win the Stanley Cup in 2009.

The Penguins plan to give a longer look during training camp to younger forwards Eric Tangradi, Dustin Jeffrey and Mark Letestu.
