Trevor Daley has been quite impressive in the defensive zone this season.
Daley has started the season by blocking more shots than he ever has in the NHL and he is getting on the ice when the draw is in his zone a lot more than ever before. "You want to improve every year and do something a little bit better," Daley said. "With the team we have here, we have such good offensive guys. The quicker that we get back and get the puck up to them, and basically get out of their way, the better it is. Plus, you pretty much have to be good defensively to play in the game today." Daley has two goals and six points in 18 games as is plus-two despite being a minus-three in his last five contests. At 33, his offensive skills may be diminishing but he did have a goal and six points in 15 playoff games last season. Nov 20 - 9:24 AM

Trevor Daley is getting a larger role on Pittsburgh's penalty kill this season.

He led the Penguins' defense corps in shorthanded ice time Thursday night with 3:14, while skating alongside Ian Cole. Daley is helping to replace Ben Lovejoy's minutes on the penalty kill after the latter left for New Jersey in the summer.

Trevor Daley's ankle has responded well to his training over the last three or four weeks.

Daley missed the last nine games of the Penguins' playoff run after breaking his ankle. "I feel great," said Daley. "I don't feel like I've missed a step at all. I feel good about my game, and I'm just excited to get it going." He's in a bit of an interesting position as this is the second campaign in a row that he'll be opening the season with the defending champions. Though he wasn't part of Chicago's 2015 Stanley Cup-winning run, he was part of the Blackhawks at the start of 2015-16, so he got to see firsthand the challenges that come with being on the team that everyone's looking to dethrone.

Trevor Daley was the second player on the Penguins to touch the Stanley Cup after captain Sidney Crosby.

He suffered a broken ankle in Game 4 of the Eastern Conference Final, but joined his teammates on the ice for the winning celebration on Sunday. "I lost the crutches about four days, five days ago I think then I lost the boot yesterday," Daley said. "So I'm on shoes now so it's been good. It's sore right now … but it's worth it."

Trevor Daley, who was considered done for the year, says he won't rule himself out of the Stanley Cup Final.

Daley suffered a broken ankle in Game 4 of the Eastern Conference Final. Although it's unlikely that he suits up in any game of the final, there's a tiny chance he could play if the series extends to six or seven games. Don't bank on him playing in the final.

Trevor Daley (broken ankle) is done for the season.

Penguins head coach Mike Sullivan confirmed the news after Sunday's morning skate. Daley suffered the injury after being hit into the boards by Lightning forward Ryan Callahan in Game 4. It's a huge loss for the Penguins, as Daley had been eating up over 22 minutes of ice time per game in the postseason.

Trevor Daley isn't on the ice for the Penguins' morning skate on Sunday.

It is an optional skate, but it doesn't seem likely that he'll suit up in Game 5. Daley was seen leaving the arena with crutches and a cast on his foot after Game 4. It looks like Olli Maatta will take his spot in the lineup. We'll let you know if anything changes regarding Daley's availability for Game 5.

It does not seem likely that Trevor Daley (foot) will play Sunday in Game 5.

Daley suffered a foot injury in Game 4 when Ryan Callahan took him into the boards. Daley did not return to action and was seen after the game on crutches with his left foot bandaged. Coach Mike Sullivan said it was not encouraging Saturday but did not give an update. Stay tuned but don't expect the solid Daley in the lineup.
May 22 - 8:48 AM

Trevor Daley was seen leaving the arena on crutches and with a heavily bandaged left foot according to the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review.

That does not bode well for Game 5 as Daley needed to be helped off the ice in the second period after taking a hit into the boards from the Lightning's Ryan Callahan. There was no update after the game but it does not look good for the Penguins defensive corps for Game 5.
May 21 - 7:29 AM

Trevor Daley left Friday's Game 4 loss to the Lightning because of a lower-body injury.

May 5 - 11:06 AM

Trevor Daley is slated to occupy Kris Letang's spot on the top power-play unit Wednesday night.

Letang won't play in Game 4 because of a one-game suspension, so Daley gets a chance to skate with Evgeni Malkin, Sidney Crosby, Phil Kessel and Patric Hornqvist on the first combination. Daley has collected four assists in eight postseason games for the Penguins.
May 4 - 1:50 PM

Trevor Daley skated with Kris Letang at practice Friday.

Letang's defense partner Olli Maatta is week-to-week with a lower body injury suffered Thursday so the Penguins are being forced to switch up their defensive pairings. This move should help Daley's fantasy value. Brian Dumoulin, Daley's partner of late, practiced with Ben Lovejoy while Justin Schultz, Ian Cole and Derrick Pouliot switched things up on the third pairing.
