The Pittsburgh Penguins got several pieces in return for Jake Guentzel at the trade deadline. This week one of those pieces in Michael Bunting has shown his worth during the IIHF World Championship tournament.

The Pittsburgh Penguins season came to a disappointing end when they failed to make the Stanley Cup Playoffs. Despite this disappointment the Penguins still have plenty of things that provide hope for the future.

This includes the impressive play of forward Michael Bunting who is representing Canada in Czechia during the IIHF World Championships. In his first game with Canada Michael Bunting tallied 2 points and was a plus 3.

Bunting had a great first game in the 2024 IIHF worlds this very early morning.


— 1 goal
— 1 assist
— 2 points
— +3

Michael Bunting with the answer!



He's playing on a line with Nick Paul (TBL) and Connor Bedard (CHI). Their line dominated Britain.

So stocked to have Bunting for a full season in Pittsburgh.


This hopefully will provide positive momentum for Michael Bunting heading into next season. The Pittsburgh Penguins will likely be looking to him as a main contributor on a team hoping to make it back to the playoffs.

As the World Championships continue over the next couple of weeks all eyes will be on Michael Bunting and Canada to see if he can sustain his success.
