• Scoring in the preseason

    News: Beau Bennett scored his second preseason goal Monday against the Canadiens.
    Analysis: Beau Bennett is finally healthy and looking to rebuild his career. He projects as a third or fourth line player to start the season, but he's got the talent to play top-six. Bennett has scored 33 points in 96 career contests, showing just a glimpse of his potential.
  • Bennett Re-Signs With Penguins

    News: Beau Bennett signed a one-year, $800,000 contract with the Penguins on Wednesday.
    Analysis: Beau Bennett missed an extended amount of time last season due to a number of injuries, only managing to suit up for 49 of the Penguins' 82 games in 2014-15. In those 49 games, Bennett tallied four goals and eight assists for a total of 12 points. He will return to his bottom-six role with Pittsburgh in 2015-16.

  • Pens' Bennett Heads Into Offseason Feeling Healthy

    News: Beau Bennett (upper body) said Sunday that he's fully healthy heading into the offseason, Seth Rorabaugh of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports.
    Analysis: The upper-body injury resulted in Beau Bennett being scratched for the final three games of the Penguins' first-round series with the Rangers, but it looks like he would have been a candidate to play had his team extended the series to six games. With just 10 goals and 33 points in 96 games over his three seasons with the Penguins, Bennett has yet to emerge as the top-six winger the team thought it had on hand when they selected him 20th overall in 2010. He'll be a restricted free agent this summer, but it remains to be seen if the Penguins will tender him a contract.

  • Pens' Bennett Finds Net In Loss

    Analysis: It was Beau Bennett's first goal since Jan. 20, and just his fourth point overall since that time. The 23-year-old opened the season with hopes of snagging a top-six role for the Penguins, but his inability to get on a roll has kept him primarily on the team's third or fourth line. His utility remains limited to very deep dynasty leagues.

    News: After tallying assists in back-to-back efforts, Beau Bennett has been held without a point in four straight games.
    Analysis: He's settled into a third-line role in recent games and has been bumped off the power play.

His inconsistent production makes the winger a risky fantasy proposition at this stage of his career.

    Analysis: The point was Beau Bennett's second in 11 games. Before Wednesday, the winger served as a healthy scratch four times in five games. It appears as though he's found a home on the third line with Brandon Sutter and Nick Spaling, though coach Mike Johnston may deploy him more against skilled teams and sit him against gritty opponents.
