  • 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 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.

    Rakell (upper body) will not play Friday against the Rangers, Seth Rorabaugh of 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.

  • 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 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.

  • Penguins' Rickard Rakell: Able to skate Sunday

    Rakell (upper body) skated Sunday, Seth Rorabaugh of Tribune-Review Sports reports. Rakell exited early in Tuesday's Game 1 against the Rangers after getting caught with his head down on a hit from New York's Ryan Lindgren. The rest of the team had the day off Sunday, but Rakell's ability to take the ice suggests he's progressing in his recovery, though it remains to be seen whether he'll be healthy enough to dress for Game 4 on Monday.

  • Penguins' Rickard Rakell: Not playing Game 3

    Rakell (upper body) is not on the ice for warmups ahead of Saturday's Game 3 versus the Rangers, Matt Vensel of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports. Rakell will miss a second straight game after suffering an upper-body injury in Game 1. The 29-year-old doesn't have a timeline to return yet, so he's questionable at best for Monday's Game 4.

  • Penguins' Rickard Rakell: Ruled out versus Rangers

    Rakell (upper body) will miss Thursday's Game 2 meeting with the Rangers. Even before getting hurt, Rakell was stuck in a four-game pointless streak during which he registered seven shots and six hits while averaging 12:25 of ice time. Without deadline acquisition Rakell in the lineup, the team may turn to Jason Zucker (lower body) if he is healthy enough to play.

  • Penguins' Rickard Rakell: Hurt in first period

    Rakell (upper body) was injured on a hit from Ryan Lindgren in the first period of Tuesday's Game 1 versus the Rangers, Dan Rosen of reports. Rakell was wobbly on his skates and needed assistance from teammates to leave the ice. The 28-year-old didn't return at the start of the second period, The Penguins didn't immediately rule him out for the contest, but based on the way he exited, it seems unlikely he'll return to the game. More information on his status should surface before Thursday's Game 2.

  • Penguins' Rickard Rakell: Two points including game-winner

    Rakell scored the game-winning goal and added an assist in Saturday's 7-2 victory over the Red Wings.

  • Penguins' Rickard Rakell: Three helpers in OT win

    Rakell notched three assists in Sunday's 3-2 overtime win over the Predators. Replacing Bryan Rust on Pittsburgh's top line at even strength, Rakell took full advantage of his ice time alongside Sidney Crosby and found the future Hall of Famer at the side of the net for a tap-in game-winner in OT. Rakell has three multi-point performances in the last eight games but has otherwise failed to find the scoresheet, amassing three goals and eight points over that stretch. Regular shifts with Crosby should allow the former Duck to become a more consistent contributor, however.

  • Penguins' Rickard Rakell: Settling in with new team

    Rakell scored twice on two shots in Thursday's 4-3 overtime win over Minnesota. Rakell was efficient with his opportunities, putting the Penguins ahead 1-0 just 1:06 into the game and 3-1 in the second. After failing to score a point over his first three games with the team, the trade acquisition from Anaheim has supplied three goals and two assists in the last three.

  • Penguins' Rickard Rakell: Three-point effort Sunday

    Rakell scored a goal and added two assists, one on the power play, in Sunday's 11-2 win over the Red Wings. After failing to find the scoresheet in his first three games with the Penguins, Rakell finally took advantage of his spot alongside Evgeni Malkin, though he didn't exactly stand out given that 10 different Pittsburgh players recorded multiple points in the rout. Rakell is up to 17 goals and 31 points through 55 games on the season, and the former Duck could have a big finish to the campaign if he keeps building chemistry with Malkin.

  • Penguins' Rickard Rakell: Set to debut Tuesday

    Rakell (upper body) is slated to play in Tuesday's clash with the Blue Jackets, Matt Vensel of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports. Rakell is expected to link up with Evgeni Malkin on the Penguins' second line, though the team only held an optional skate ahead of the matchup with Columbus. After missing the 20-goal mark in each of the previous three seasons, Rakell is poised to get back over that threshold as he currently sits with 16 tallies and will no doubt benefit from playing with a world-class center like Malkin.

  • Penguins' Rickard Rakell: Moved at deadline

    Rakell (upper body) was traded to Pittsburgh from Anaheim for Dominik Simon, Zach Aston-Reese (illness), Calle Clang and 2022 second-round draft pick Monday, Bob McKenzie of TSN reports. Rakell has racked up 16 goals in 51 games this season and will almost certainly be paired up with Evgeni Malkin on the Pens' second line. While the 28-year-old Swede has managed nine points with the man advantage this year, he will likely have to settle for a spot with Pittsburgh's second group. Still, Rakell should still offer decent fantasy value moving forward considering his upgraded linemates.

  • Ducks' Rickard Rakell: Out again Friday

    Rakell (upper body) will not play Friday against Florida, Eric Stephens of The Athletic reports. Rakell will miss his third straight game with the injury. Without a timetable for a return, he should be considered day-to-day for now, with another update coming once he's able to resume game action.
