The Pittsburgh Penguins, currently sitting at the 7h rank of the Metropolitan Division will have important choices to make ahead of this year's deadline. The main one resolves around Jake Guentzel, who'll be a free agent following the current season. He's reportedly asking for a big salary, which could force Kyle Dubas to trade him before the deadline to avoid losing him for nothing on the free agents market.

As the organization looks for all possible avenues concerning Sidney Crosby's linemate, a major development could turn their plans upside down.

Major Blow For the Pittsburgh Penguins Regarding Jake Guentzel: The Forward Got Injured Last Night in a Game Against the Florida Panthers

Last night, not only did the Penguins lost 5-2 to the Panthers, but they've also lost Jake Guentzel.

He didn't play any shifts in the final portion of the game, and the team's head coach Mike Sullivan confirmed in his post-game press conference that the player would be evaluated for an upper-body injury.

Per Elliotte Friedman:

"Jake Guentzel did not play the final 11:58 of Pittsburgh's 5-2 loss to Florida. Head coach Mike Sullivan says the forward is being evaluated for an upper-body injury."


With less than a month before the deadline, this could seriously hurt Guentzel's value. If the injury keeps him away from the ice for a long time, teams could be reluctant to get him, and the Penguins could have trouble trading him at the price they've set.

We hope that he will be back on the ice soon and that the Penguins will take precautions to make sure he doesn't get injured again before the deadline.
