  • Penguins' Jason Zucker: Dishes out seven hits

    Zucker recorded seven hits and three shots in 13:11 of ice time against the Rangers in Game 3 on Saturday. Zucker was back in the lineup after three games on the sidelines and certainly didn't hold back, leading the Penguins with his seven hits. With Rickard Rakell (upper body) out, coach Mike Sullivan has shuffled up the lines a bit, deploying Zucker on the third group with Jeff Carter, though that could certainly change before Game 4 on Monday.

  • Penguins' Jason Zucker: On track to return

    Zucker (lower body) participated in line rushes during warmups, indicating he'll play in Saturday's Game 3 versus the Rangers, Matt Vensel of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports. Zucker warmed up with Jeff Carter and Brock McGinn on the third line. Barring a late change, Drew O'Connor will exit the lineup to accommodate Zucker's return to action after a three-game absence. The 30-year-old Zucker could also feature on the power play.

  • Penguins' Jason Zucker: Not expected to play Thursday

    Zucker (lower body) did not take line rushes in warmups, which suggests he won't play in Thursday's Game 2 versus the Rangers, Jon Lane of NHL.com reports. Zucker was deemed a game-time decision for Thursday's contest, but it appears he'll need a bit more time to feel comfortable playing. The 30-year-old's next chance to return is back home in Pittsburgh for Saturday's Game 3.

  • Penguins' Jason Zucker: Game-time call

    Zucker (lower body) will be a game-time decision versus the Rangers on Thursday. If Zucker is able to play, he would immediately step into the second-line spot being vacated by the injured Rickard Rakell (upper body). In addition to taking Rakell's even-strength spot, Zucker should be in contention to link up with the No. 2 power-play unit. If Zucker can't go, Drew O'Connor would step into the lineup instead.

  • Penguins' Jason Zucker: Could return for Game 2

    Zucker (lower body) won't be available against the Rangers for Game 1 on Tuesday but hasn't been ruled out for Thursday's Game 2. Zucker is skating but hasn't been cleared for contact yet according to coach Mike Sullivan. If the winger is given the green light Thursday, he figures to jump right into a second-line role with Evgeni Malkin and Rickard Rakell. In the meantime, Danton Heinen is poised to fill that spot.

  • Penguins' Jason Zucker: Skating Monday

    Zucker (lower body) took the ice for a solo skate Monday and may be ahead of schedule. Coach Mike Sullivan told reporters, "It's real significant. The fact that he's on the ice is a big step. We'll go from there, but we're certainly encouraged," Pens Inside Scoop reports. While Sullivan didn't clear Zucker to play in Game 1 against the Rangers on Tuesday, it certainly should be something fantasy players are monitoring heading into that matchup. Whenever Zucker does get the green light, he should link up with Evgeni Malkin and Rickard Rakell on the second line and figures to be part of the No. 2 power-play unit.

  • Penguins' Jason Zucker: Missing more time

    Zucker (lower body) is considered day-to-day but won't be available "early in Round 1," Dave Molinari of DKPittsburghSports.com reports. Head coach Mike Sullivan noted that the winger could be available later in the series, but it sounds like Zucker will miss at least the first couple of games against the Rangers. The 30-year-old winger scored 17 points in 41 games during his injury-plagued regular season.

  • Penguins' Jason Zucker: Still being evaluated

    Zucker's lower-body injury is still being assessed by the Penguins' medical staff, Seth Rorabaugh of TribLive.com reports, effectively ruling him out versus Columbus on Friday. The fact that there is still no clear picture regarding Zucker's status would seem to be a bad sign for the winger. If given the green light to play, Zucker would likely join Evgeni Malkin on the second line, a spot currently being occupied by Danton Heinen.

  • Penguins' Jason Zucker: Exits with lower-body injury

    Zucker is being evaluated from a lower-body injury after leaving Tuesday's game versus the Oilers, Mike DeFabo of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports. Zucker struggled off the ice late in the first period and didn't join the Penguins' bench to start the second. It's unclear if he'll be able to return to this contest. If not, Zucker should be considered day-to-day ahead of Friday's game versus the Blue Jackets.

  • Penguins' Jason Zucker: Under the weather

    Zucker is dealing with a non-COVID illness ahead of Saturday's game versus Detroit, Seth Rorabaugh of TribLive.com reports. Although he's not feeling well, Zucker is expected to travel for Pittsburgh's upcoming two-game road trip. His availability for Saturday's matchup with the Red Wings may boil down to a game-time call.

  • Penguins' Jason Zucker: Good to go

    Zucker (lower body) will return to the lineup Saturday versus Washington. Zucker is expected to slot into a second-line role and a spot on the No. 2 power-play unit following his three-game absence. The 30-year-old winger has been limited to just 32 games this season due to injury, picking up 14 points over that span.

  • Penguins' Jason Zucker: Still out against Rangers

    Zucker (lower body) will not play versus the Rangers on Thursday, Josh Yohe of The Athletic reports. Despite traveling with the team and practicing in a second-line role, Zucker will miss his third straight game due to his lower-body issue. Until the 30-year-old winger can retake his spot in the lineup, the Penguins will likely continue to roll with Jeff Carter on the wing alongside Evgeni Malkin, though Evan Rodrigues and Kasperi Kapanen could both be candidates for that spot.

  • Penguins' Jason Zucker: Joining road trip

    Zucker (lower body) will travel with the Penguins ahead of their game Thursday versus the Rangers. Zucker was injured last Thursday versus the Wild and has already missed two contests, but his presence on the road trip indicates he's nearing a return. The initial thought was that the winger could be out for a while after being unable to put weight on his leg when he was hurt, but he's been able to practice in the last couple of days. Zucker's status will likely be determined based on if he participates in Thursday's morning skate, though he could still be labeled a game-time decision.

  • Penguins' Jason Zucker: Status remains unclear

    Zucker (lower body) is still without a clear recovery timeline and won't be available against Colorado on Tuesday. Coach Mike Sullivan told reporters, "Our doctors are continuing to consult with one another, but having said that, his response over the last few days has been encouraging. He has been on the ice the past few days... We still don't have definitive answers from our medical staff." It's certainly not a ringing endorsement for Zucker to get back into the lineup any time soon, especially considering the team isn't able to provide any specifics. Sullivan also declined to answer whether Zucker's current issue is related to the core muscle surgery that previously sidelined him for 37 games. In the meantime, the Penguins have shifted Jeff Carter to the wing on the second line while Teddy Blueger takes over as the third-line center.

  • Penguins' Jason Zucker: No update available

    The Penguins weren't able to provide an update on Zucker (lower body), who will miss Saturday's game versus Colorado at a minimum, Dave Molinari of DKPittsburghSports.com reports. It appears Zucker, who's missed 37 of Pittsburgh's last 39 games, may once again be facing a long-term absence. Another update on the 30-year-old winger's condition should surface once the Penguins return home prior to Tuesday's rematch with the Avalanche.

  • Penguins' Jason Zucker: Suffers lower-body injury

    Zucker was unable to put any weight on his right leg after a collision along the boards in Thursday's game versus the Wild. Head coach Mike Sullivan had no update on his status after the game, Jessi Pierce of NHL.com reports. Zucker was making his return from a core muscle injury that has bothered him for much of the season. This isn't an aggravation of that injury -- he was on the receiving end of a hit and needed help off the ice. He did pick up an assist in 5:33 of ice time, but he'll likely need further evaluation to determine his recovery timeline going forward.

  • Penguins' Jason Zucker: Suiting up against former club

    Zucker (lower body) will be in the lineup versus the Wild on Thursday. It will be Zucker's first return to Minnesota after being traded to the Penguins in February of 2020. Injuries have limited the 30-year-old winger to just 31 games this season in which he generated six goals and seven helpers. It will be a new-look second line for the Penguins, as Zucker will link up with Evgeni Malkin and deadline acquisition Rickard Rakell.

  • Penguins' Jason Zucker: Game-time decision Thursday

    Zucker (lower body) will be a game-time call ahead of Thursday's clash with Minnesota, Mike DeFabo of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports. Zucker lined up alongside Evgeni Malkin and Ricard Rakell at practice Wednesday and seems poised to jump right into a top-six role. Injuries have limited the 30-year-old winger to just 31 contests this year in which he recorded six goals and seven assists.

  • Penguins' Jason Zucker: Cleared for contract

    Zucker (lower body) has been cleared for contact and could be an option against Minnesota on Thursday, Seth Rorabaugh of TribLive.com reports. It would certainly be a well-timed return for Zucker, who spent nine years playing for the Wild. How the winger will fit into the Penguins' lineup whenever he is cleared to play remains to be seen, but the addition of Rickard Rakell at the trade deadline will likely result in Zucker taking on a bottom-six role.
