PITTSBURGH (93-7 The FAN) — Multiple media outlets are reporting that the Pittsburgh Penguins are still very much in the mix for free agent winger Shane Doan.
In fact, one report says Doan will likely visit with Pittsburgh.
“Shane is going to visit a couple of more teams,” said Doan’s agent, Terry Bross, to the Tribune-Review on Sunday. “I’m pretty sure Pittsburgh will be one of them. He is interested in the Penguins.”
Doan has indicated all along that his primary interest is to re-sign with Phoenix, which is the only organization he has ever played for. However, there’s a lot of uncertainty surrounding the Coyotes and their ownership.
Doan has received several outside offers, including one from the Penguins. He visited with the New York Rangers and Philadelphia Flyers last week.
Doan scored 22 goals and totaled 50 points last year in Phoenix. He added five goals and four assists in the playoffs.
For his career, Doan has 318 goals and 470 assists for 788 points.
