The Pittsburgh Penguins could use some help on defense going forward.
The Pittsburgh Penguins could use some help on defense. Yes, they added Erik Karlsson to the group but he isn’t exactly the best defensive defenseman.
In fact, Karlsson is all about the offense. He is great at it but he could get better. Now, the Penguins would love to add another player to compete for that sixth spot on the blue line.
You need as many good and healthy players for that role as possible and the Penguins know that from previous experience.
Adding someone like Nick Holden would really help them get to that place. He’d come in and bring stability to the bottom pair as this team tries to be a playoff team once again.
He spent the last two seasons with the Ottawa Senators after stops with the Columbus Blue Jackets, New York Rangers, Colorado Avalanche, Boston Bruins, and Vegas Golden Knights.
A team like the Pittsburgh Penguins would be another great stop for him. In fact, all three of these players would look good in that uniform.
