Coach Dan Bylsma said he may try out Brandon Sutter alongside Evgeni Malkin and James Neal this season.
"I also feel like I wouldn't anchor (new acquisition Brandon) Sutter to that third-line center position," Bylsma said. "If he is winning a lot of the right-hand draws he could conceivably go take the draw and be on Geno's line. There could be some movement." Sutter is slated to play the majority of the year as the team's third-line pivot, but he is hoping to have a bigger offensive role with the club than he received with Carolina.
