Pittsburgh Penguins Roster at 32: As Season Nears, Who Gets Cut?

Wednesday morning, the Penguins announced a second round of training camp cuts, bringing their current roster to 32 players. The Penguins' team site broke the story.

Ryan Craig, Nick Johnson, Eric Tangradi, Colin McDonald, Scott Munroe and Brad Thiessen were assigned to Wilkes-Barre/Scranton of the AHL Wednesday. Before clearing waivers Thursday, Nick Johnson was claimed by the Minnesota Wild.

Defenseman and 2011 second-round draft pick Scott Harrington was returned to the London Knights of the OHL.

Following the second round of cuts, the Penguins now carry 32 men on their roster (18 forwards, 12 defense and two goaltenders) with two preseason games left—Friday at Chicago and Sunday in Detroit.

For those players on the fence, those games will be their final chances to make an impression on the staff.

With 20 of the 52 players from the first training camp roster already gone, a few more cuts will be made before the Penguins' season begins next week in Vancouver, with some projected starters to miss the beginning of the year with injuries.

Who's out, who's in and who's got an outside chance? Let's take a look at the remaining roster, and who might make a surprise appearance early this season:
