      Penguins' Matt Cullen: Goal and assist in win over Toronto

      Cullen scored a goal and added an assist in Saturday's 4-0 win over Toronto. The old man can still play. Cullen turns 39 on Monday and is clearly in the sunset of his career. But he has four points in 11 games and is holding his own, although he probably won't afford fantasy owners with much value, even in deep leagues.

    • Set to center line in Pittsburgh

      News: Matt Cullen will start the season as Pittsburgh's fourth-line center and serve as a penalty killer.
      Analysis: The 37-year-old is expected to give the Pens a hint of offensive ability on a fourth line which had very little scoring prowess in 2014-15. Matt Cullen netted seven goals and 25 points in 62 games for Nashville last year and has a long relationship with GM Jim Rutherford via their stints with Carolina. Cullen had a decent camp and could serve as an in-season waiver-wire pickup when injuries strike.
    • Cullen Inks One-Year Deal With Penguins

      News: Matt Cullen signed a one-year, $800,000 contract with the Penguins on Thursday.
      Analysis: Matt Cullen, who turned 38 in November, will provide the Penguins with a veteran presence in the locker room, as well as some solid depth at center. He registered 25 points (seven goals, 18 assists) in 62 games with Nashville last season, and will likely slot into a bottom six role with Pittsburgh in 2015-16.
    • Preds' Cullen Back In Saturday

      News: Matt Cullen (lower body) will return to the lineup Saturday against the Stars, Robby Stanley of reports.
      Analysis: The Predators are gradually beginning to get healthy again, as all of Matt Cullen, Shea Weber, and James Neal will return to the lineup Saturday following multi-game absences. Cullen's return is the least significant of the trio for fantasy purposes, as he's only produced seven goals and 24 points across 58 games for the Predators. Nonetheless, he's a valuable depth forward for the squad, and will be tasked with centering the third line during Saturday's game.
    • Preds' Cullen Practices Thursday

      News: Matt Cullen (lower body) practiced with the team Thursday.
      Analysis: Matt Cullen centered the Preds' third line during the session, with coach Peter Laviolette indicating afterward that he was pleased with how the forward looked during the session. While Cullen could be on track to play Saturday against the Stars, the team probably won't know for certain if that will be the case until after Friday's practice.

      Analysis: After being ruled out of Tuesday's win over the Canadiens due to the injury, Matt Cullen was on the ice for Wednesday's practice.
