Five generations of Penguins netminders

by Sam Kasan @PensInsideScoop / Penguins

TAMPA, Florida - Five Penguins' goaltenders spanning the course of five decades came together in Tampa on Wednesday.

Les Binkley, Jim Rutherford, Gilles Meloche, Matt Murray and Tristan Jarry were all in Tampa's Amalie Arena, covering Penguins' netminders from the '60s, '70s, '80s, '10s and '20s.

Binkley (1967-72) was a member of the Penguins' original expansion team in 1967 and was a close friend of Rutherford (1971-74), who is the current general manager of the team.

Meloche (1985-88) is a special assignment scout for the Penguins and a former goaltending coach for the club. He suited up for the club in the late '80s.

Binkley, Rutherford and Meloche all watched the Penguins' practice, including the efforts of Murray (2015-present) and Jarry (2017-present). After, all five puck stoppers got together at the team's bench to take a picture that represents the past, present and future of Pittsburgh goaltending.
