After all the wheeling and dealing done, how does the Pittsburgh Penguins future draft situation look? It can be hard to keep up with it all, so we'll recap it here.

Pretty bleak, the Penguins have their normal 2nd, 5th, 6th and 7th round picks, and have traded away their 1st, 3rd and 4th rounders.

Note: The Penguins may receive an additional pick in 2016 as part of the trade that sent Philip Samuelsson to Arizona for Rob Klinkhammer. The condition of the pick was never publicly revealed, but probably hinges on Samuelsson's performance and/or the Coyotes re-signing him this summer. We'll update if we hear anything, but any pick probably wouldn't be of large value.

So there you have it- the Penguins have not acquired any picks of late, and have dealt away several of their own. There is always the chance that Pittsburgh could trade players for draft picks during the summer during the draft (like when they sent Tyler Kennedy to San Jose for a second round pick), so we'll have to see. The draft pick cupboard is depleted and could use such trades.
