Along with Max Talbot, Matt Cooke, Chris Kunitz and Pascal Dupuis, Kennedy provided the Penguins with an emerging core of versatile role players last season. Kennedy scored 15 goals -- all at even strength -- with three GWG. He handled face-offs effectively as well, winning at a 53.8% clip. That flexibility to play the wing and take draws in certain situations adds to his overall value while skating less than 14 minutes a night.
