Youth providing spark to Pens' lineup

by Sam Kasan @PensInsideScoop / Penguins

The Penguins were stuck in a slump in the 2015-16 season. The club crawled to a 15-10-3 record, but the team look sluggish and lethargic on ice. A change was needed. A new energy was needed. 

General manager Jim Rutherford found that energy with a new head coach (Mike Sullivan) and several trades (Trevor Daley, Carl Hagelin, Justin Schultz). But those weren't the only changes that ignited the club. It was the contributions from the younger players in the system: Bryan Rust, Scott Wilson, Conor Sheary, Tom Kuhnhackl, Matt Murray. 

The rest of that season, as they say, is history. The Penguins would rally to win the club's fourth Stanley Cup title and the first of back-to-back championships.

November 1972: 'Little Giant' in the Nets

by Al Abrams / Post-Gazette

In honor of '70s Theme Night, the Penguins new media staff searched the team's archives and wanted to re-post this article about Jim Rutherford from November 15, 1972. Spoiler: it turns out Jim did have a 'great future' ahead of him!

If you are not a hockey aficionado, one look at Jim Rutherford would bring up the question, "What's his line?"
Not even the members of the TV panel with the same handle could guess correctly.
Rutherford is 5 feet 8 inches and weighs 155 pounds... built along the same lines as ElRoy Face. In his goalie gear, the Penguins' young star grows to a hefty 185 pounds. The height remains the same until after a triumph. Then, Jim feels as tall as Wilt Chamberlain.
