Columbus general manager Scott Howson says you can’t have enough centers on your roster, acquired a “top nine” player in Mark Letestu from the Pittsburgh Penguins in exchange for a fourth-round draft pick.

Letestu who is 26, has a contract through next season and will cost $625,000 against the CBJ salary cap. He will be an unrestricted free agent in 2013-2014.

Currently, the Jackets are without Jeff Carter who has a broken foot and rookie Ryan Johansen is being used as a winger at the present time.

Letestu is 5’11, 195 pounds and is from Elk Point, Alberta.

Penguins’ Crosby to miss start of season

Sidney Crosby, star of the Pittsburgh Penguins, will have to wait a little longer to get back on the ice.

The team placed the former MVP on the injured list on Monday, meaning that he’ll have to miss at least the first week of the season.

Under the NHL rules, the earliest Crosby could be activated is October 13, when Pittsburgh plays host to Washington.

Crosby has been out of action recovering from concussion-like symtoms sustained last January. He has been skating with the Penguins since  training camp opened but has not yet been cleared for contact.

Pittsburgh hockey fans will have to say goodbye to Mellon Arena

Mellon Arena in Pittsburgh will be joining all of those other arenas, ballparks and stadiums of yesteryear in the big graveyard of memories.

Demolition work has begun on the igloo-shaped former home of the Pittsburgh Penguins.

The city-county Sports & Exhibition Authority says demolition crews will work until about May to tear down the old building.

A preservation group in Pittsburgh and around Pennsylvania failed in its efforts to get the courts to keep the arena from being torn down so it could be used for other events.

The group’s argument was that the retractable steel-roof on the building, which is 50-year’s old, made it worth saving for future events.

The National Hockey League will kick off its regular season with a national television doubleheader featuring the Stanley Cup champion Boston Bruins.

The Bruins will host the rival Philadelphia Flyers in the first of two games on the NBC Sports Network, formerly Versus on October 6, and the Pittsburgh Penguins will visit Western Conference champion Vancouver Canucks in the nightcap.

NBC’s first game will be November 25, the day after Thanksgiving, when Boston plays host to the Detroit Red Wings.

The network will air the Winter Classic on January 2 as the New York Rangers play at Philadelphia.

NBC Sports Group and the NHL are getting ready to enter the first year of a 10-season deal reportedly worth $2 billion.

The Bruins’ Stanley Cup-clinching win against the Canucks in June earned a 4.8 rating, the NHL’s highest-rated game in 37 years.
