Jared McCann is sticking with the Pittsburgh Penguins. McCann tied a career high with 35 points during the 2020-21 season, collecting 14 goals and 21 assists in 66 games. ''Jared is a good offensive player who can play center or wing,'' Penguins general manager Jim Rutherford said in a statement.
As of Tuesday, players in the NHL with modified no trade clauses had to update their lists of teams they can block getting traded to without their permission. For the Penguins three players qualify.
