David Warsofsky is confident he can claim a spot on Colorado's back end going into the 2017-18 season.

"When you're in position like I am, and you can make break-out passes and get the puck to the open forwards, good things are going to happen," Warsofsky said. "Twenty years ago I don't think someone like me could make it in the NHL. But the way with the team is going nowadays, teams need (speed) from the back end and do the things I can do. I can definitely be useful, whether it's the 5-6 pair or (top-four). I'm clean getting out of our own end and I can jump up into the rush and getting scoring opportunities. I can help contribute." There are openings on the blue line with only Erik Johnson, Nikita Zadorov, Tyson Barrie and Mark Barbario have secure positions.

David Warsofsky has enjoyed a strong training camp during his bid for a roster spot with Pittsburgh.

"We like his mobility, his ability to get back to pucks quickly, his vision, his ability to make that first pass, so that preferably we can keep the puck and come out of our end zone efficiently," coach Mike Sullivan said. "We like all of those aspects of his game." He skated in 12 games for the Penguins last year before he was claimed off waivers by New Jersey in January, so he feels comfortable in Pittsburgh's system. Warsofsky logged 4:53 of playing time on the power play in Wednesday's preseason match and he registered an assist on a goal by Chris Kunitz.
