  • Penguins' Tom Kuhnhackl: Nets shorthanded goal Sunday

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (2/20/17) Kuhnhackl put the Penguins on the scoreboard Sunday in a 5-2 loss against Detroit.

    The German winger has been battling a lower-body injury all year, but he is finally finding consistent time in the lineup. Sunday's shorthanded goal was Kuhnhackl's first tally since Dec. 8 when he scored against the Panthers. His fantasy value has been minimal over seven February games, though, firing a total of five shots on goal and averaging 11:12 minutes of ice time. It's really hard to justify starting a right wing whose best stats are in the defensive zone -- 58 hits and 23 blocked shots over 33 games.

    Penguins' Tom Kuhnhackl: Available Sunday

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (1/7/17) Kuhnhackl (lower body) has been cleared to play according to coach Mike Sullivan, Sam Kasan of Pens Inside Scoop reports.

    Despite being healthy, Kuhnhackl is still listed as on injured reserve per the NHL Media Site as the team will need to make a corresponding roster move in order to stay under the 23-man limit. Given the depth of talent at the forward position for Pittsburgh, there is no guarantee the 24-year-old will be on the ice Sunday as he has periodically been a healthy scratch throughout the year. Until winger can secure consistent ice time, he will offer limited fantasy value.

    Penguins' Tom Kuhnhackl: Sitting on IR

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (1/1/17) Kuhnhackl (lower body) is listed on injured reserve, per the NHL's official media site.

    On the surface, this seems like a bit of an odd move considering the Penguins have eight days before their next game, so there isn't much need to free up the roster space, especially considering Kuhnhackl appeared to be nearing a return to action soon anyway. In any case, the 24-year-old will have plenty of time to heal up and could be ready as soon as Jan. 8 for a matchup with the Lightning.

    Penguins' Tom Kuhnhackl: Still not ready to return

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (12/31/16) Kuhnhackl (lower body) won't play Saturday against Montreal, J-F Chaumont of the Journal de Montreal reports.

    Kuhnhackl was able to log a full practice Friday, but evidently still isn't ready to return to game action. Either way, Kuhnhackl's continued absence likely won't impact many fantasy owners' lineups, as his limited offensive upside -- five points in 23 games this season -- keeps him from being a practical option in most formats. The Penguins should release another update on the German forward's status once he's ready to return to the lineup.

    Penguins' Tom Kuhnhackl: Full participant for practice

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (12/30/16) Kuhnhackl (lower body) remains day-to-day, yet practiced in full Friday.

    If Kuhnhackl is cleared to return in time for Saturday's matchup with with Montreal, it would be extremely fortuitous for Pittsburgh as Bryan Rust (illness) is under the weather. The German has been out of the lineup for the Pens last six contests and has managed a mere five points even when healthy, so you may not want to expert a sudden explosion of scoring when he does slot back into the lineup.
