Hainsey adjusting in unique circumstances

by Michelle Crechiolo @PensInsideScoop / Penguins Team Reporter

After the Pens acquired Ron Hainsey from Carolina last Thursday, the veteran defenseman's first practice with the team was outside at Heinz Field on Friday.

From there, his first game with the team was the 2017 Stadium Series against the Philadelphia Flyers on Saturday.

And after a day off Sunday, Hainsey's first indoor practice with the Pens on Monday at PPG Paints Arena had over 7,500 screaming students in the stands watching as part of the annual kids' Open Practice.

One wouldn't blame Hainsey if he wonders whether things will ever get back to normal with his new team.
