There may be a new third line forming for the Pittsburgh Penguins.

Jussi Jokinen, Brandon Sutter and Matt D’Agostini have been skating as a unit at Penguins training camp and they managed to produce some offence Saturday, scoring two goals in a 3-0 scrimmage victory for Group A, as per the club’s website.

Not a bad start.

“Both guys are pretty easy to play with,” D’Agostini told the Penguins’ website.

“They’re both simple, straight-forward guys that get their offensive chances by just working hard, getting pucks behind their D and getting our chances from there.

“Every time you come off there are conversations. Go here, you want me here, those kinds of things. They’re good communicators. It’s been pretty good the last couple of days.”

The Penguins signed D’Agostini in July to a one-year deal worth $550,000.

    I was hoping Dustin Jeffery was gonna get a chance on that line, but that’s still a potentially potent third line for sure.
