Nick Spaling LW PIT 9 Days

Spaling will serve as a second-line left winger next to Evgeni Malkin and Patric Hornqvist on Tuesday.

He saw time on the team's No. 2 line Saturday and set Malkin up for his goal against the Rangers. With Pascal Dupuis (undisclosed) sidelined Tuesday, Spaling will continue seeing top-six minutes. Whenever the team gets healthier, look for the former Preds forward to move in and out of Pittsburgh's top-six on a game-by-game basis. He's totaled five points (2G,3A) in 16 contests thus far in 2014-15.

Nick Spaling has been dealt to the Pittsburgh Penguins.

Spaling will head to Pittsburgh along with Patric Hornqvist while James Neal is headed the other way. Spaling will give the Penguins some good depth as a bottom six forward as he managed 13 goals and 32 points in 2013-14. He is slated to become a restricted free agent on Tuesday but we cannot imagine him not wanting to play with Crosby and company.
