Here are your Pens Points for this Monday morning...

How much change is coming for the Pittsburgh Penguins? [Trib Live]

As the offseason gets underway for the Penguins, one of the many question marks surrounding the team was pointed in the direction of head coach Mike Sullivan. Three straight first-round exits is not a recipe for job security, even with two Stanley Cups to your name. However, it looks like the Bostonian bench boss will return to the Penguins for the 2021-22 season. [Pensburgh]

Kris Letang is another figure who faces a bit of an uncertain future, with talks of a contract extension not on the radar yet. The 34-year-old blue liner has gone on record stating that he wants to finish his career with the only team he’s ever known. [Post-Gazette]

Jake Guentzel was very critical of his most recent playoff performance. With only a goal and an assist in six playoff games this season, the winger believes he ‘let a lot of people down.’ [Trib Live]

Kasperi Kapanen has finally found a ‘home’ with the Penguins. [Trib Live]

News and notes from around the NHL...

The Columbus Blue Jackets’ star defenseman, Seth Jones, has informed the team that he will not sign a long-term extension with the club and will opt for free agency when his contract expires next season. However, he could be traded as early as this summer, according to a new report. [Sports Illustrated] / [Pro Hockey Rumors]
