  • Penguins' Rickard Rakell: Point streak reaches four games

    Rakell netted a power-play goal in Pittsburgh's 4-1 win against Ottawa on Friday. Rakell has 17 goals and 31 points in 45 games this season. He's on a four-game point streak and has provided three markers and six points over that span. His recent hot stretch has been a nice change of pace after Rakell was held to a goal and three points over nine contests from Dec. 22-Jan. 13.

  • Penguins' Rickard Rakell: Adds three assists Monday

    Rakell registered three assists in a 4-3 overtime victory against Anaheim on Monday. Rakell has now recorded at least a point in three of his last four contests. That's pushed him up to 15 goals and 29 points in 43 games this season. The 29-year-old's offensive pace is ahead of 2021-22, when he finished with 20 goals and 41 points in 70 outings.

  • Penguins' Rickard Rakell: Nets power-play goal Saturday

    Rakell found the back of the net in a 2-1 loss to Carolina on Saturday. Rakell scored on the power play at 7:48 of the third period to narrow the Hurricanes' lead to 2-1, but Pittsburgh couldn't complete the comeback attempt. It was his 15th goal and 26th point in 42 games this season. Rakell was limited to just a goal and three points in his previous nine contests.

  • Penguins' Rickard Rakell: Generates helper Thursday

    Rakell notched an assist and two shots on goal in Thursday's 5-2 loss to the Golden Knights. Rakell began the game on the second line, but a shuffle during the contest saw him pick up first-line minutes in the third period. He set up Sidney Crosby's goal late in the final frame, though it had no impact on the result. With just three assists over seven games since his last goal, Rakell's offense has gone a bit sluggish. The 29-year-old is up to 13 tallies, 11 helpers, 116 shots on net, 65 hits and a plus-5 rating through 38 contests.

  • Penguins' Rickard Rakell: Nets power-play goal Sunday

    Rakell contributed a power-play goal in a 3-2 loss to Carolina on Sunday. Rakell has 13 goals and 21 points in 31 games in 2022-23, including seven power-play points. The 29-year-old has been held off the scoresheet only once in his last six games. He entered the contest averaging 17:59 of ice time, including 2:28 with the man advantage, and Rakell should maintain his offensive pace as long as he stays in his current role.

  • Penguins' Rickard Rakell: Two-point night in Buffalo

    Rakell scored an even-strength goal and a power-play assist in Friday's 4-3 overtime win over the Sabres. He knotted the score at 2-2 early in the third period before helping to set up Jeff Carter's winner 96 seconds into OT. Rakell continues to enjoy his time in a top-six role for the Penguins, and over the last 13 games he's piled up six goals and 11 points despite very little production (just two helpers) with the man advantage.

  • Penguins' Rickard Rakell: Two-point effort in Sunday's win

    Rakell scored a goal, added an assist and went plus-2 in Sunday's 5-3 win over the Blackhawks. Over his last seven games, Rakell has looked solid with three goals and four helpers. This was his second multi-point effort in that span. A recent move to the top line has helped keep his offense steady. The winger has eight tallies, five assists, 58 shots on net, 35 hits and a plus-12 rating in 19 contests overall. That's right in line with the scoring pace he displayed after coming over from the Ducks at the trade deadline last season.

  • Penguins' Rickard Rakell: Credited with helper

    Rakell notched an assist, three shots on goal, two hits and a plus-2 rating in Wednesday's 4-1 win over the Capitals. Rakell helped out on Jason Zucker goal in the second period. The 29-year-old Rakell had gone multiple games without a point for the first time year before that assist. He's at five goals, two assists, 47 shots on net, 22 hits and a plus-6 rating in 13 contests. While he hasn't gone on an extended run of offense, he's been steady in a second-line role.

  • Penguins' Rickard Rakell: Nets lone goal on power play

    Rakell scored a power-play goal on eight shots in Friday's 5-1 loss to the Canucks. Rakell was the only Penguin to beat Spencer Martin, and he was one of their best players in the loss, which was closer than it looked. The 29-year-old Rakell has four goals and one assist through eight games, but he has yet to get on the scoresheet in consecutive contests this year. He's added 34 shots on net, 10 hits, seven blocked shots and a plus-7 rating while working in a top-six role and on the first power-play unit.

  • Penguins' Rickard Rakell: Records two early points

    Rakell collected a first-period goal and assist, but the Oilers rallied to claim a 6-3 victory over the Penguins on Monday. Rakell appears to be starting to earn a defined role with the Penguins. The 29-year-old right winger scored a combined 87 goals for the Ducks from 2015-18 but had little impact (four tallies in 19 games) during his first run with the Penguins. So far this season, Rakell is attempting to make up for the lost campaign, collecting three goals in six outings. He also was credited with his first assist Monday, aiding Sidney Crosby on his first-period tally.

  • Penguins' Rickard Rakell: Scores versus Kings

    Rakell scored his second goal of the season against Los Angeles on Thursday. Rakell managed just four goals in his 19 games with the Penguins last season after coming over at the trade deadline. With a new long-term contract in hand, the 29-year-old Swede has kicked off the campaign with a pair of goals through the opening four contests. Paired with Evgeni Malkin on the Pens' second line, Rakell should continue to rack up points this year.

  • Penguins' Rickard Rakell: Inks six-year extension

    Rakell signed a six-year, $5 million AAV deal with the Penguins on Monday, Mike DeFabo of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports. Pittsburgh acquired Rakell from Anaheim last season and he notched 13 points in 19 games with his new team. The 29-year-old winger will be locked into the Penguins' top six for at least the next few years. Since scoring 69 points during the 2017-18 campaign, Rakell has yet to surpass the 45-point mark. On top of his regular role, he should be expected to see time on the team's second power-play unit.

  • Penguins' Rickard Rakell: Solid in limited stint

    Rakell notched four goals, nine assists and 48 shots in 19 games with the Penguins this year. Rakell was solid in his brief time in Pittsburgh but was forced to miss most of the playoffs, appearing in just two of the seven games against the Rangers. In those outings, the Swede posted six shots but failed to get himself onto the scoresheet. While the team would likely want to bring Rakell back, the number of big-name players that need new deals could limit the club's ability to offer him a market-value deal.

  • Penguins' Rickard Rakell: Suiting up Sunday

    Rakell (upper body) will play Sunday against the Rangers, Jason Mackey of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports. Rakell will return from a five-game absence after he was injured in Game 1 on May 3. The 29-year-old winger will skate in a second-line role alongside Evgeni Malkin. He scored 13 points while averaging 17:01 of ice time in 19 games after the Penguins acquired him from Anaheim.

  • Penguins' Rickard Rakell: Game-time decision Sunday

    Rakell (upper body) is a game-time decision for Game 7 against the Rangers on Sunday, Dan Rosen of NHL.com reports. The 29-year-old hasn't played since Game 1 on May 3, when he was knocked out of the game due to injury after logging just 4:28 of ice time. Rakell was a solid contributor after coming over from Anaheim in a trade -- chipping in 13 points in 19 regular-season games with the Penguins -- so his return would be welcomed in what figures to be quite a Game 7 battle at Madison Square Garden.

  • Penguins' Rickard Rakell: Out Friday

    Rakell (upper body) will not play Friday against the Rangers, Seth Rorabaugh of TribLive.com reports. Rakell was considered a game-time decision Friday but he'll end up missing his fifth straight game. The 29-year-old appears to be close to returning, so he could be an option for Game 7 on Sunday if the Rangers tie the series Friday.

  • Penguins' Rickard Rakell: Game-time call Friday

    Rakell (upper body) will be a game-time decision Friday for Game 6 against the Rangers. Rakell has been out since Game 1 with an upper-body injury following a hit from Ryan Lindgren. If the 29-year-old forward is able to go Frida, he could see an expanded role with Sidney Crosby (upper body) ruled out. Rakell had four goals and nine assists in 20 games after joining the Penguins at the trade deadline.

  • Penguins' Rickard Rakell: Still considered day-to-day

    Rakell (upper body) remains day-to-day and won't be available against the Rangers on Wednesday. Rakell will miss his fourth consecutive contest due to his lingering upper-body issue. In 20 games since joining the Penguins, the 29-year-old Swede has recorded four goals and nine assists, including one power-play point.

  • Penguins' Rickard Rakell: Not cleared for contact

    Rakell (upper body) has yet to be cleared for contact despite sporting a regular jersey at Tuesday's optional skate, Mike DeFabo of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports. Rakell has missed the last three games while dealing with his upper-body injury and remains in doubt versus the Rangers for Game 5 on Wednesday. Whenever the 29-year-old Swede does get back into the lineup, he should immediately reclaim his place on the second line with Evgeni Malkin.

  • Penguins' Rickard Rakell: Ruled out Monday

    Rakell (upper body) skated in a non-contact sweater at Monday's game-day skate and has been officially ruled out for Game 4 versus the Rangers, Wes Crosby of NHL.com reports. While it's certainly good news that Rakell has begun skating, his absence will continue to create a hole on the Penguins' second line, one that is currently being filled by Danton Heinen. Including the game he got hurt, the 29-year-old Rakell is mired in a four-game pointless streak during which he's recorded seven shots, six hits and a plus-2 rating. Once cleared to play, Rakell should be a lock to play on Evgeni Malkin's line, where he can offer top-half fantasy value.
