Athanasiou (lower body) could be an option against the Penguins on Thursday, per NHL.com.

While the news rules Athanasiou out for Monday's matchup with the Rangers, it does provide a more specific recovery timeline for the 27-year-old center. While injuries have limited the Ontario native to just 11 contests, he has picked up six points in those appearances, making him a solid top-half fantasy option when available.
