The NHL finally saw a second player change sweaters after accepting an RFA offer sheet from a rival team. Over a decade ago, Dustin Penner signed with the Edmonton Oilers, which raised Anaheim Ducks GM Brian Burke’s ire, though Penner’s career never reached its ceiling.

One year ago today, Flyers fans woke up disappointed and frustrated. The Philadelphia Flyers’ last playoff game was one year ago yesterday: September 5th, 2020.

He’s adding a new chapter to the story by returning to the Penguins organization this month as manager of its Community Hockey Programs. (NHL)
