Marc Bergevin still associated with the Penguins

The name of former Montreal Canadiens general manager Marc Bergevin has once again been linked to the Pittsburgh Penguins.

In his “32 Thoughts” podcast on Wednesday, renowned Sportsnet network reporter Elliotte Friedman said the 57-year-old could be “on the radar” for the Pennsylvania club. The “Pens” are looking for a new DG, after having wiped the slate clean at the conclusion of their 2022-2023 season.

“I’m not saying it will be him, but I think he will be an interesting candidate in their search,” Friedman said.

This is not the first time that Bergevin’s name has been associated with the Penguins: two weeks ago, TVA Sports host Jean-Charles Lajoie raised the possibility in his daily newspaper.

Currently, the former CEO of CH holds an advisory position to the general manager of the Los Angeles Kings, Rob Blake. He had obtained this job a few months after being fired by the Canadian in November 2021.

Bergevin led the general staff of the Habs for just under 10 seasons. He had previously held various positions on the second floor of the Chicago Blackhawks organization.

The Montreal native also worked for 20 years as a defenseman in the National Hockey League. He played for the Blackhawks, New York Islanders, Hartford Whalers, Tampa Bay Lightning, Detroit Red Wings, St. Louis Blues, Vancouver Canucks and Penguins.
