Pittsburgh Penguins 2019 Draft in Review

With three first round picks and six in the top two rounds, the Penguins saw the 2019 draft as an opportunity to build a foundation for their rebuilding effort, to go along with key youngsters like Mitch Marner, Jeremy Roy, Brandon Carlo and Brendan Perlini.

During the 2019 draft, we learned for sure who was going to take the mantle as the face of the new-look Penguins, saw a nice boost to the defensive pipeline and some depth forward prospects with intriguing skillsets as the Penguins' farm system got a much-needed boost. Let's review the ten new prospects added to the team:

1st round, 2nd overall - C Jack Hughes

When the Penguins traded Cody Hodgson to Ottawa to start this rebuild, the 2nd overall pick was the piece they coveted most, and when the San Jose Sharks took Kaapo Kakko with the 1st overall pick, it left Jack Hughes as the future of the Pittsburgh Penguins franchise. Hughes has the makings of a superstar, a brilliant skater and playmaker who will be effective at the other parts of the game. The only knock on Hughes is a lack of size and physical presence, but he will be an elite first liner for the Penguins to build around going forward and is expected to make his NHL debut this season.
