Pionk picked up a power-play assist in Friday's 4-0 win over the Golden Knights. Pionk is in the midst of a career year, with 44 points (25 on the power play), 168 shots on goal and 159 hits through 69 contests. Expect the 24-year-old defenseman to remain the quarterback of the top man-advantage unit in Winnipeg -- it's been a productive role for Pionk thus far.
Pionk recorded eight shots in Tuesday's 4-3 overtime loss to Washington. Despite putting up a season-high eight shots, Pionk was unable to write his name on the scoresheet. The blueliner remains stuck in a nine-game goalless streak but has racked up six helpers (four with the man advantage) over that stretch. With Josh Morrissey (upper body) sidelined, the Jets will lean even more on Pionk down the stretch.
Pionk collected a pair of assists while adding five shots, three hits, two blocks and two PIM in Thursday's 5-1 win over Ottawa. Pionk's breakout season continued with another boxscore-filling performance. He set up a Mark Scheifele power-play goal in the first period and had the secondary assist on Kyle Connor's second-period tally. That's now eight points (one goal, seven assists) in the last seven games for the 24-year-old. An undrafted, college free agent out of the University of Minnesota Duluth, Pionk has rather quietly put up 41 points in 62 games in his third NHL season.
Pionk registered a power-play assist, four hits and two PIM in Sunday's 5-2 win over the Blackhawks. The consistent defenseman had a hand in Blake Wheeler's third-period tally. Pionk has racked up 37 points (21 on the power play), 127 shots and 136 hits in 57 outings this season. His key role in the Jets' star-loaded power play should keep the 24-year-old as a viable fantasy asset through the end of the year.
Pionk scored an even-strength goal and added two power-play assists in Saturday's 5-2 win over the Senators. The defenseman even had a major hand in the Ottawa offense -- with Winnpeg up 3-1 late in the second period, Pionk fanned on a clearing attempt to inadvertently set up the Sens' Mikkel Boedker for an unassisted tally. It was Pionk's first multi-point performance in 2020, but on the season he still has a solid six goals and 36 points through 56 games.
