Mark Friedman, age 27, has a two-year contract with a salary cap hit of $775,000. He has played three preseason games with no points and three shots. Friedman joined the Penguins in 2021 after being claimed off waivers from the Philadelphia Flyers.

Magnus Hellberg, age 32, played one preseason game, making 16 saves on 19 shots. He signed a one-year contract with a salary cap hit of $785,000.
