A mere 13 hours after their 82nd and final game of the season ended in a loss to the Columbus Blue Jackets, ranked 30th, the Penguins made some significant moves.

Fenway Sports Group announced the dismissal of President of Hockey Operations Brian Burke, General Manager Ron Hextall, and Assistant General Manager Chris Pryor from their positions.
