  • Penguins' Chad Ruhwedel: Two points in commanding win

He also posted a secondary apple on an Evgeni Malkin goal, which culminated in his first two-point effort of the season. The physical blueliner has four goals, nine assists, 77 blocked shots and 140 hits with three games remaining in the regular season.

    Ruhwedel notched an assist, four hits, three blocked shots and two PIM in Sunday's 4-2 win over the Devils. Ruhwedel set up Mike Matheson's tally in the second period. The assist snapped a month-long drought on offense for Ruhwedel, who last got on the scoresheet Jan. 13 with a helper versus the Kings. The 31-year-old blueliner has five assists, 87 hits, 40 blocked shots, 45 shots on net and a plus-3 rating in 45 appearances.

  • Penguins' Chad Ruhwedel: Exits protocols

    Ruhwedel (COVID-19 protocols) is expected to play Tuesday against Washington, Matt Vensel of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports. Ruhwedel was placed on the COVID-19 list earlier Tuesday but it appears that could've been a false positive. The 31-year-old blueliner is expected to skate in his usual bottom-pair role against the Capitals.

  • Penguins' Chad Ruhwedel: Enters COVID-19 protocols

    Ruhwedel was placed in the league's COVID-19 protocols Tuesday, Pens Inside Scoop reports. Fortunately for Ruhwedel, the Penguins won't play again until Feb. 8 against the Bruins, so he should have time to clear protocols and may avoid missing any additional contests. While the 31-year-old San Diego native is not exactly an offensive stud, he's reached the 10-point threshold just once in his 10-year NHL career, Ruhwedel has been a reliable defensive option. In his stead, Mark Friedman figures to play in just his second game since mid-November.

  • Penguins' Chad Ruhwedel: Contributes assist in loss

    Ruhwedel logged an assist and two shots on goal in Thursday's 6-2 loss to the Kings. Ruhwedel helped out on Radim Zohorna's third-period marker. The 31-year-old Ruhwedel snapped a five-game point drought with the assist. The California native remains a fixture on the third pairing, where he's earned four assists, 35 shots on net, 60 hits, 28 blocked shots and a plus-1 rating in 32 outings. He's unlikely to score enough to earn interest in fantasy.

  • Penguins' Chad Ruhwedel: Logs helper Sunday

    Ruhwedel recorded an assist, two hits and two blocked shots in Sunday's 3-2 win over the Devils. Ruhwedel has two assists in his last four games, but it's too early to describe it as a hot stretch. The 31-year-old plays a predominantly defensive role on the third pairing. He's up to three helpers, 28 shots on net, 49 hits, 26 blocked shots and a plus-1 rating in 26 appearances.

The 31-year-old Ruhwedel has reached double digits in points just once in his nine NHL seasons. His assist Monday was his first point of the year to go with 19 shots on net, 26 hits, 15 blocked shots and a plus-1 rating in 14 contests.

  • Penguins' Chad Ruhwedel: Out of COVID-19 protocols

    Ruhwedel (COVID-19) was cleared of the league's protocols and resumed skating Tuesday, Mike DeFabo of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports. Ruhwedel missed the team's last three games after testing positive for COVID-19 but appears to be trending in the right direction. Even if the San Diego native does get back into the lineup against the Panthers on Thursday, he shouldn't be expected to have a heavy fantasy impact considering he is pointless to start the year and has reached the 10-point threshold just once in his 10-year NHL career.

  • Penguins' Chad Ruhwedel: Positive test confirmed

    Ruhwedel's COVID-19 positive test was confirmed by the team Monday, though he remains asymptomatic.

With Marcus Pettersson (COVID-19) also unavailable, the Pens figure to utilize both Pierre-Olivier Joseph and Juuso Riikola on the blue line.

  • Penguins' Chad Ruhwedel: Inks extension

    Ruhwedel agreed to terms on a one-year, $750,000 contract with Pittsburgh on Friday. Ruhwedel appeared in just 41 games for the Pens this year (two goals, four helpers and 44 shots in 14:46 of average ice time). The San Diego native spent much of the year as the seventh defenseman but could be in line for more ice time next year following the presumptive departure of Justin Schultz.

  • Penguins' Chad Ruhwedel: Drought continues

    Ruhwedel failed to write his name on the scoresheet against the Kings on Wednesday, bringing his pointless streak to 17 games. Ruhwedel's goal drought goes back even further to Dec. 20 versus Edmonton, a streak of 27 contests without finding the back of the net. If Pittsburgh's blue line can get healthy, Ruhwedel figures to find himself relegated to the press box alongside Juuso Riikola.

  • Penguins' Chad Ruhwedel: Returns to Friday's game

    Ruhwedel (undisclosed) has returned to Friday's game against the Flyers, Seth Rorabaugh of TribLive.com reports. Ruhwedel was a bit slow to get back on the bench to start the third period, but he's evidently feeling well enough to continue. He remains in a third-pairing role for the Penguins.

  • Penguins' Chad Ruhwedel: Records two blocks Tuesday

    Ruhwedel registered two blocks, one hit and one shot in 15:09 of ice time versus Vegas on Tuesday. Ruhwedel remains stuck in a six-game pointless streak, which should come as no surprise considering his minimal ice time and absence from either power-play unit. Once Justin Schultz (lower body) and Brian Dumoulin (ankle) return to the lineup, Ruhwedel will find himself back up in the press box with Juuso Riikola.

  • Penguins' Chad Ruhwedel: Tallies second goal

    Ruhwedel scored his a goal and posted a plus-1 rating in a 5-2 victory over the Oilers on Friday. The 29-year-old opened the scoring Friday night with a shot from the point that sneaked through a screen and beat Mike Smith. It was Ruhwedel's second goal of 2019-20, which ties a career high with still half a season to go. Ruhwedel has plenty of time to score his third goal, but his scoring pace should decrease because his 10.5 shooting percentage is unsustainable. Overall, he has two goals and four points with an even rating in 12 games this season.
