In case you missed the news earlier today, the Pittsburgh Penguins claimed defenceman Mark Friedman off of waivers from the Philadelphia Flyers.


While this isn't particularly a huge development, Friedman's waiver claim made waves on social media because it was reported by Sportsnet NHL insider Elliotte Friedman. Mark and Elliotte, despite sharing a last name, have no relation and Penguins president Brian Burke made sure of that.

Check it out:



Burke, of course, was colleagues with Friedman at Sportsnet prior to taking his new job with the Penguins and the pair had somewhat of a "Big brother / little brother" relationship where Burkie would give Friedman the gears at any given moment.
