Sceviour delivered two assists Thursday in a 5-4 overtime win over the Capitals. Both helpers from Sceviour took place in the second period. He'd gone eight straight games without a point before breaking out Thursday, but Sceviour is holding his own in a fourth-line role based on his output of five goals and five assists through 41 games while averaging only 9:25 of ice time.
Sceviour scored two goals on three shots in Sunday's 5-2 win over the Devils. Sceviour tallied his two goals 2:51 apart early in the first period, and the Penguins never trailed in the contest. The 31-year-old was waived Saturday but didn't get claimed and remained on the Penguins' active roster. He's produced five goals, three assists, 35 shots on net and 40 hits through 32 appearances this year.
The Penguins placed Sceviour on waivers Saturday, Mike DeFabo of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports. Assuming Sceviour clears, he'll likely be sent to the taxi squad and could even be back on the active roster for Sunday's game in New Jersey. However, this could be a sign that Evgeni Malkin (lower body), Brandon Tanev (upper body), or Kasperi Kapanen (lower body) are close to returning. Sceviour has six points in 31 games this season, including three over his last five contests.
Sceviour was promoted to the active roster Wednesday, Seth Rorabaugh of TribLive.com reports. Sceviour will suit up for a ninth straight game, and he's slated to skate on the fourth line. The 31-year-old doesn't have much fantasy upside, as he's recorded three points and 25 shots on net through 34 games.
Sceviour was demoted to the taxi squad Monday, CapFriendly reports. Sceviour has been in Pittsburgh's lineup for the last eight games, tallying one assist and 12 hits during that span. He'll likely be recalled before Wednesday's game against Buffalo.
