  • Penguins' Matt Cullen: Will play Wednesday
    By RotoWire Staff

    Cullen (illness) will be in the lineup for Wednesday's game against the Blackhawks. Cullen missed Tuesday's practice due to an illness, but the veteran pivot was able to participate in Wednesday's morning skate, and he was never in serious danger of missing Pittsburgh's meeting with Chicago. The American forward will slot into a bottom-six role against the Blackhawks, centering Tom Kuhnhackl and Oskar Sundqvist on the Penguins' fourth line, but he should also see time on the man advantage as a member of Pittsburgh's second power-play unit Wednesday evening.

  • Cullen missed Tuesday's practice due to illness. It is unclear what impact this may have on Cullen's status for Wednesday's matchup with the Blackhawks, but with the number of banged-up players in the Burgh, losing a veteran like Cullen -- even for one game -- would be a big setback. The 40-year-old has been lighting it up recently, netting two goals and three assists in his past six contests -- including a marker on the power play, where he is only averaging 23 seconds of ice time. If the winger is unable to suit up Wednesday, the Pens may need to call up a player from the minors to fill out the game-day roster.

  • Cullen scored a first-period goal in Sunday's loss against Philadelphia. The 40-year-old now has two goals and three assists over seven games since returning from an undisclosed injury. Cullen is becoming more injury-prone as he ages, but he has 28 points this season over 66 games, compared to 32 points over 82 last season. When healthy, Cullen is still a solid winger in leagues of decent-sized depth.

  • Penguins' Matt Cullen: Ready to return Wednesday
    By RotoWire Staff

    Cullen (undisclosed) will return to Pittsburgh's lineup for Wednesday's game against the Flyers, Jonathan Bombulie of the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review reports. Cullen will return to a bottom-six role Wednesday, centering Tom Kuhnhackl and Oskar Sundqvist on the Penguins' fourth line. The 40-year-old pivot has posted solid numbers while skating in a somewhat limited role for Pittsburgh this season, notching 23 points (10 goals, 13 assists) in 59 games, but he hasn't done enough to warrant ownership in most fantasy formats.

  • Cullen (undisclosed) will be a game-time decision in Wednesday's rivalry clash with the Flyers. Cullen has already missed the Pens' previous three contests and if unable to go, would likely be replaced on the fourth line by Josh Archibald. A rash of injuries for Pittsburgh has forced several young players into the lineup of late, so getting back a veteran of Cullen's caliber would be a huge boon in this contentious matchup.
