      News: Chuck Kobasew signed with SC Bern of the Swiss National A League on Wednesday.
      Analysis: After logging over 600 games at the NHL level upon being drafted in the first round of the 2001 NHL Entry Draft, Chuck Kobasew, 32, could choose to remain overseas for the remainder of his career. He didn't have much success in 2013-14 with the Penguins, notching two points in 33 games while missing much of the first half of the season with a lower-body injury.
    • Penguins Send Kobasew To AHL

      News: The Penguins have assigned Chuck Kobasew to AHL Wilkes-Barre/Scranton.
      Analysis: Chuck Kobasew, who recorded two goals in 33 games for the Penguins this season, heads back to the AHL for now, but he provides the team with an experienced forward option should injuries hit during the playoffs.
    • Pens Recall Kobasew

      News: Chuck Kobasew was recalled by the Penguins on Sunday, Shelly Anderson of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports.
      Analysis: The veteran winger will likely be a temporary call up for Sunday's season finale. However, he could be a replacement for one of the two currently listed day-to-day in Chris Kunitz and Taylor Pyatt if they aren't healthy enough for the start of the playoffs.
    • Pens Reassign Kobasew

      News: Chuck Kobasew was reassigned to AHL Wilkes-Barre/Scranton on Wednesday.
      Analysis: After passing through waivers unclaimed, Chuck Kobasew will head out to the minors to clear the way for Marcel Goc's addition to the Pittsburgh roster. Kobasew had some early-season heroics with game-winning goals in his first two games, but he's offered no points in his 30 games since.
    • Pens' Kobasew Placed On Waivers

      News: Chuck Kobasew was placed on waivers by the Penguins on Monday, TSN's Bob McKenzie reports.
      Analysis: Chuck Kobasew was on the ice for Monday's practice, so there's still a chance the Penguins will keep him with the big club even after he passes through waivers unclaimed. The 31-year-old has two points in 31 games and is strictly organizational forward depth for the Penguins.
    • Pens' Kobasew Struggling To Score

      News: Chuck Kobasew has two goals and no assists in 30 games this season.
      Analysis: Chuck Kobasew started the season hot with two game-winning goals in his first two games, but hasn't been on the score sheet since. He missed most of January with a lower-body injury, but got five games in before the break. He'll continue to play mostly a depth role when games resume.
    • Pens' Kobasew Likely To Play Monday

      News: Chuck Kobasew (lower body) is expected to return to the lineup Monday against the Panthers, Josh Yohe of the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review reports.
      Analysis: Not only will Chuck Kobasew be playing in his first game since Dec. 31, but he also figures to earn an appointment as the right wing on the Sidney Crosby line. Skating alongside arguably the world's best player could certainly ignite Kobasew's production, as the 31-year-old had just two points in 25 games before his latest injury.
    • Pens' Kobasew Back Practicing

      News: Chuck Kobasew (lower body) took part in practice Saturday.
      Analysis: Chuck Kobasew had been skating on his own for several days before, so his return to practice doesn't come as a major shock. He could be one of several injured Penguins to make their return to game action Monday vs. the Panthers. Kobasew, who scored goals in his first two games with Pittsburgh and went goalless in his next 23, is expected to skate on the third or fourth line.
    • Pens' Kobasew Looks To Be Out Tuesday

      News: Chuck Kobasew (lower body) appears to be unavailable Tuesday vs. the Canucks, Shelly Anderson of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports.
      Analysis: Chuck Kobasew didn't participate in regular line rushes during morning skate and looks like he'll miss his third straight contest with the lower-body injury. The Penguins have moved Deryk Engelland over from defenseman to forward to fill out their four lines with Kobasew unavailable.
    • Pens' Kobasew Nursing Lower-Body Injury

      News: Chuck Kobasew is day-to-day with a lower-body injury, Seth Rorabaugh of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports.
      Analysis: Chuck Kobasew was absent from Saturday's practice with the injury, putting his status in question for Sunday's game vs. the Jets. The Penguins don't exactly have a lot of available replacement options with six other forwards on IR, which may force Kobasew to tough things out Sunday if his injury isn't too severe.
