Penguins 2006-2007 Roster

The official roster for the Penguins is located at their site - www.pittsburghpenguins.com

I'm going to reproduce it here for posterity (and so I can find it easily at mid season, the end of the year and next season), along with what the lines could look like to start the year.

The Pens are carrying 23 players, with 2 on the injured reserve (Cairns and Petro). The breakdown is as follows:

Forwards (13)
  • Nils Eckman - Sidney Crosby - Colby Armstrong
  • John Leclair - Ryan Malone - Mark Recchi
  • Jarkko Ruutu - Dominic Moore - Karl Stewart
  • Michel Ouellet - Jordan Staal - Andre Roy
  • Evgeni Malkin (injured)

Defensemen (7)
  • Sergei Gonchar - Mark Eaton
  • Ryan Whitney - Brooks Orpik
  • Josef Melichar - Kris Letang
  • Rob Scuderi (scratch)

Goalies (3)
  • Marc-Andre Fleury
  • Jocelyn Thibault
  • Dany Sabourin

Injured Reserve
  • Ronald Petrovicky
  • Eric Cairns

When Malkin returns, expect to see Ouellet, Roy or Stewart get scratched. Malkin would center the second line, and things would likely shape up like this:
Ryan Malone - Evgeni Malkin - Mark Recchi
Jarkko Ruutu - Dominic Moore - John Leclair
Michel Ouellet - Jordan Staal - Andre Roy (or Karl Stewart)
