The Pittsburgh Penguins are interested in Montreal Canadiens defenseman Jordie Benn, per RDS's Francois Gagnon, minutes away from Monday's 3:00pm trade deadline.

Benn, 30, has 12 points in 59 games played this season. The defenseman has 25 penalty minutes and an even plus minus rating. The Canadiens acquired Benn on Feb. 27 from the Dallas Stars in exchange for Greg Pateryn and a fourth round draft pick in 2017.
