    Penguins' Olli Maatta: Snaps slump against Ducks

    Maatta collected his sixth goal of the season -- and first in nine games -- Monday against Anaheim. The defender hasn't looked particularly strong at either end of the ice in recent action. His four shots on goal were one more than his collective total in his previous six tilts. It's easy to forget the third-year regular is still only 21 years of age, but that gives fantasy owners hope for continued improvement going forward. Maatta has scored six goals and 15 points in 46 games.

    Penguins' Olli Maatta: Gets two points against Avalanche

    Maatta assisted on two of Pittsburgh's four goals in Wednesday's victory over the Avalanche. The Finnish defenseman has showcased his offensive ability with four points over his last four games. He has 44 points in 118 career contests, so expect Maatta to continue to contribute at a decent rate as long as he can stay healthy.

    Penguins' Olli Maatta: Plays well in return Saturday

    Maatta put a pretty backhander past goalie Jonathan Quick for his third goal of the season Saturday. Playing after a seven-game absence, Maatta got better as the game went along. He made it through the game without reinjuring himself and could expand his responsibilities to the power play Sunday if Kris Letang (undisclosed) cannot play.

    Penguins' Olli Maatta: Will return to action Saturday

    Maatta (upper body) will play Saturday against the Kings. Maatta has missed Pittsburgh's last six games with an upper-body injury, but returned to practice Monday, and will draw back into the Penguins' lineup for Saturday's game against LA. The 21-year-old blueliner's return couldn't come at a better time for Pittsburgh, as Kris Letang will miss Saturday's contest with an undisclosed ailment. Maatta has tallied four points (two goals, two assists) and 17 shots on goal in 18 games this season.

    Penguins' Olli Maatta: Getting closer to return

    Maatta (upper body) won't play Friday but could return Saturday, according to the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review. Pens coach Mike Johnston said Maatta was playing his best hockey before getting hurt. "Getting Olli back, I think, is important for our group because I thought Olli was starting to play really well as far as moving his feet, getting up ice, making good decisions with the puck like he always does," Johnston said. Maatta has two goals, four points and a plus-8 rating in 18 games.

    Penguins' Olli Maatta: Skates top line Thursday

    Maatta (upper body) skated with Kris Letang during Thursday's practice. Earlier in the week Pens coach Mike Johnston said that Maatta might return to the lineup Friday. He was just finding his game when he got hurt Nov. 17. His ability to skate on the top pairing would take a lot of pressure off of a mediocre defensive corps in Pittsburgh.

    Penguins' Olli Maatta: Takes part in practice Monday

    Maatta (upper body) took part in Monday's practice, Jenn Menendez of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports. Maatta appears to be progressing quicker than expected after being tabbed with a timetable of at least a month upon initially sustaining the injury. He's already missed two weeks after a collision with the boards but could be ready for game action in the near future.

    Penguins' Olli Maatta: Making good progress

    Maatta (upper body) is expected to skate before team practices for the next several days as part of his recovery process, the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review reports. Pens coach Mike Johnston sounded optimistic his defender might return in less than the three or four weeks he was originally projected to miss. "I'm hoping it might progress over the next few days," Johnston said. Maatta has already missed one week after being checked into the boards from behind by Minnesota's Nino Niederreiter.

    Penguins' Olli Maatta: Likely out at least a month

    Maatta is expected to be sidelined for at least a month with an upper-body injury he suffered in Tuesday's tilt against Minnesota, Jason Mackey of the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review reports. Maatta is still in the hospital Wednesday after being hit into the Wild's bench door by Minnesota's Nino Niederreiter in the second period of Tuesday's contest. The good news is that internal organ damage is no longer a serious concern, and Maatta isn't expected to require surgery to address the ailment. The bad news is that the 21-year-old blueliner is expected to be out at least a month with the injury, and could be sidelined far longer depending on how his rehabilitation goes. A more definitive timetable for Maata's return should be established once team physicians have an opportunity to evaluate him further.
