Simon Despres will get a chance to crack the Pittsburgh lineup for the 2014-15 season.
Despres was not a favorite of the recently-fired head coach Dan Bylsma and with Matt Niskanen, Deryk Engelland and Brooks Orpik unlikely to return to the Pittsburgh lineup, the former first round pick will be given every opportunity to win a job on the Penguins blueline. "Without a doubt," associate GM Jason Botterill said. "You saw how he played in the playoffs in Wilkes-Barre. It was a great step in the right direction. He went down there with a better attitude. He was very physical. I think he enjoyed playing. It's been a difficult situation for our defensemen because of the depth that we have." Jun 29 - 10:46 AM
