Top Penguins News

  • Penguins' Bryan Rust: Missing from road trip

    Rust (upper body) did not join the Penguins for their four-game road trip, the team announced Monday.

    Rust was injured in Sunday's wild 7-6 victory over the Flyers in which he racked up two goals (one on the power play) on six shots and an assist. Unless he links up with the team later in the trip, the 31-year-old winger should be expected to miss at least the next four games. Reilly Smith has moved into Rust's first-line spot while Valtteri Puustinen was elevated to the No. 1 power-play unit.

  • Penguins' Kris Letang: Two points in Sunday's win

    Letang scored the game-winning goal and added a power-play assist in Sunday's 7-6 victory over the Flyers.

    The veteran blueliner produced his second straight multi-point performance, snapping a scoring slump that had seen Letang cobble together just one goal and six points over his prior 16 contests. Sunday's helper was only his third power-play point of the season, as the addition of Erik Karlsson to the Penguins' lineup has left Letang in danger of failing to score in double digits with the man advantage for the first time since 2009-10.

  • Penguins' Rickard Rakell: Two-point effort Sunday

    Rakell produced a goal and an assist in Sunday's 7-6 win over the Flyers.

    After helping to set up a Sidney Crosby tally in the first period, Rakell potted a goal of his own in the third. The 30-year-old remains erratic, but skating alongside Crosby at even strength gives him some fantasy ceiling. Bryan Rust's upper-body injury from Sunday could make Rakell's spot on the power play more secure. Rakell has delivered three multi-point performances in the last 10 games, but has just one goal and seven points over that stretch.

  • Penguins' Sidney Crosby: Four points in win over Philly

    Crosby scored a goal and added three assists, one on the power play, in Sunday's 7-6 win over the Flyers.

    The future Hall of Famer got the Penguins on the board midway through the first period before having a hand in two Bryan Rust (upper body) tallies and a third-period marker by Rickard Rakell. Crosby is doing what he can to drag his team into the postseason. Since the calendar flipped to 2024, the 36-year-old has recorded 12 goals and 24 points in 20 games.

  • Penguins' Tristan Jarry: Escapes with win Sunday

    Jarry made 15 saves on 21 shots in Sunday's 7-6 win over the Flyers.

    Scott Laughton flipped a puck through traffic past Jarry a little over two minutes into the first period, setting the tone for a wild afternoon affair, but the Penguins managed to come out on top in the end. Jarry's February has been just as chaotic -- he's allowed two goals or less in four of his six starts, but coughed up 11 total in the other two, leaving him with a 2.70 GAA and .901 save percentage on the month.

  • Penguins' Bryan Rust: Injured Sunday

    Rust (upper body) is being evaluated after Sunday's win over the Flyers, Michelle Crechiolo of the Penguins' official site reports.

    Rust tallied two goals -- including one on the man advantage -- and an assist with six shots on goal before exiting Sunday's contest. He has 16 points in 20 appearances since returning from a 10-game absence that held him out for most of December. The 31-year-old winger has 18 goals and 36 points in 42 games this season. An update on Rust's status should be available before the Penguins begin their upcoming four-game road trip.

  • Penguins' Tristan Jarry: Starting vs. Flyers

    Jarry will guard the home net Sunday versus Philadelphia.

    Jarry snapped a three-game losing streak with a 30-save performance in a 4-1 victory over Montreal in his last outing. He'll look to build on Thursday's effort against a Flyers team that managed just one goal in a loss to the Rangers on Saturday. Jarry is 15-17-4 with a .915 save percentage and 2.46 GAA this season.

  • Penguins' Drew O'Connor: Two points vs. Habs

    O'Connor tallied a goal and an assist in Thursday's 4-1 win over the Canadiens.

    O'Connor set up Kris Letang's tally in the first period before adding a goal of his own in the second, beating Cayden Primeau with a wrister to extend Pittsburgh's lead to 3-1. O'Connor now has goals in back-to-back games and five points (two goals, three assists) in his last five contests following a seven-game point drought. The 25-year-old forward is up to a career-best 20 points (eight goals, 12 assists) through 54 games this season.

  • Penguins' Kris Letang: Two goals in win

    Letang scored a pair of goals in Thursday's 4-1 victory over Montreal.

    Letang got Pittsburgh on the board midway through the first period, beating Cayden Primeau with a wrister through traffic to tie the game 1-1. The 36-year-old blueliner added an empty-netter in the final frame to seal the Penguins 4-1 win. It's Letang's first multi-point game since Jan. 4 -- he came into Thursday with just one goal and three points in his last 11 contests. Overall, Letang has 34 points (six goals, 28 assists) through 54 games this season.

  • Penguins' Tristan Jarry: Stops 30 in win

    Jarry turned aside 30 of 31 shots in a 4-1 victory over the Canadiens on Thursday.

    After giving up a goal to Mike Matheson in the first period, Jarry proceeded to blank the Canadiens over the final two frames while the Penguins scored four unanswered goals to give him the win. The victory ended a three-game losing skid for Jarry, as he improves to 14-17-4 with a .914 save percentage and 2.50 GAA this season. The Penguins are back in action Sunday at home versus Philadelphia.

  • Penguins' Emil Bemstrom: Dealt to Pittsburgh

    Bemstrom was traded from the Blue Jackets to the Penguins on Thursday in exchange for Alexander Nylander and a conditional sixth-round pick in 2026.

    Bemstrom has 11 points in 32 contests for the Blue Jackets this season, giving him 69 points over 204 career NHL appearances. The 24-year-old winger has never really managed more than a bottom-six role, but the Penguins will bring him in with the hopes he can improve their scoring depth. Bemstrom will likely remain in a bottom-six role once he links up with Pittsburgh.

  • Penguins' Magnus Hellberg: Sent back down

    Hellberg was reassigned to AHL Wilkes-Barre/Scranton on Thursday.

    Hellberg was up with the big club for four days but didn't see any game action. The 32-year-old netminder will return to the Baby Pens until he's needed in Pittsburgh again.

  • Penguins' Noel Acciari: Off injured reserve

    Acciari (concussion) was taken off injured reserve Thursday, per Seth Rorabaugh of Tribune-Review Sports, which sets the stage for him to draw into the lineup for the evening's game against Montreal.

    Acciari missed the Penguins' previous six contests. He has three goals, four points, 91 hits and 59 blocks in 39 outings in 2023-24. Acciari is projected to play on the fourth line Thursday while Jesse Puljujarvi might serve as a healthy scratch.

  • Penguins' Noel Acciari: Game-time decision Thursday

    Acciari (concussion) will be a game-time decision versus Montreal on Thursday, Wes Crosby of NHL.com reports.

    Acciari has been out of action since Feb. 6. He has a goal, three assists, 91 hits and 59 blocked shots in 39 games. Should he return to the lineup against the Canadiens, look for Jesse Puljujarvi to be a healthy scratch.

  • Penguins' Tristan Jarry: Between pipes Thursday

    Jarry will defend the home goal versus Montreal on Thursday, Wes Crosby of NHL.com reports.

    Jarry has lost his last three starts, but he only gave up a pair of goals in two of those games. Overall, Jarry has played quite well this season despite his 14-17-4 record, as he has a 2.50 GAA and a .914 save percentage. He also leads the NHL in shutouts with six. Jarry will face the Canadiens, who have scored 159 times in 56 games, 26th in the league.
