  • Penguins' Evan Rodrigues: Sets new personal bests

    Rodrigues recorded career highs in goals (19), assists (24) and power-play points (eight) in 82 games this season.

    No doubt the fact that Rodrigues played in all 82 games for the first time in his career factored into his regular-season success. Still, the 28-year-old center went through some extended slumps this year and struggled for consistent productivity. Despite that, Rodrigues should be in line for a raise this offseason as he is expected to hit free agency this summer.

  • Penguins' Evan Rodrigues: Pair of points in Game 7 loss

    Rodrigues scored a shorthanded goal on six shots and added a power-play assist in Sunday's 4-3 overtime loss to the Rangers in Game 7.

    Rodrigues was involved in the Penguins' first and third goals. The latter of those tallies saw him pick off a pass and score on a breakaway shorthanded. The 28-year-old's scoring contributions in the playoffs were limited to just two games, but he had three tallies and two assists in seven outings overall. The 28-year-old enjoyed a career year with 43 points, 243 shots on net, 89 hits and a plus-3 rating while playing in all 82 regular-season contests for the first time in his career.

  • Penguins' Evan Rodrigues: Makes most of limited action

    Rodrigues scored twice on five shots and added an assist in Saturday's 7-4 win over the Rangers in Game 3.

    Rodrigues racked up all three of his points in a span of 6:57 in the first period, helping the Penguins establish a 4-1 lead. His first goal and his helper both came on the power play as the Pens' depth came through clutch in this contest. The 28-year-old was limited to 9:28 of ice time with the return of Jason Zucker (lower body). Rodrigues had a career year with 43 points in 82 regular-season games, but performances like Saturday's should be considered unlikely as long as he remains on the fourth line.

  • Penguins' Evan Rodrigues: Game-time decision Thursday

    Rodrigues (illness) will be a game-time call to face the Islanders on Thursday, Wes Crosby of reports.

    Rodrigues managed just 6:27 of ice time versus the Islanders on Tuesday while he tried to play through his illness but was unable to go on. Without Rodrigues, either Danton Heinen or Kasperi Kapanen would likely step into a third-line role, especially if Bryan Rust (illness) is also unable to play.

  • Penguins' Evan Rodrigues: Suiting up Thursday

    Rodrigues (illness) will be in Thursday's lineup against the Islanders, Wes Crosby of reports.

    Rodrigues was considered a game-time call Thursday but he'll avoid missing any game action. He has 42 points through 75 games this season but just two over his last eight games. The 28-year-old should fill a middle-six role.

  • Penguins' Evan Rodrigues: Leaves Tuesday's game

    Rodrigues (illness) left Tuesday's game versus the Islanders.

  • Penguins' Evan Rodrigues: Delivers helper in victory

    Rodrigues registered an assist in Saturday's 4-1 win over the Coyotes.

    Rodrigues is blossoming into a terrific possession player, as evidenced by a 60.5 Corsi rating, and that has been helping him out offensively. The 28-year-old has registered 17 goals and 21 assists -- including seven tallies and an apple on the man advantage -- through 63 games.

  • Penguins' Evan Rodrigues: Blasts power-play goal

    Rodrigues posted a power-play goal in Sunday's 4-3 loss to the Hurricanes.

    Rodrigues gave the Penguins hope, as he scored with 1:12 remaining the contest, but the visitors would hang for the win and keep the Pens two points behind in the Metropolitan Division standings. The third-line center is having a breakout campaign with 16 goals and 18 assists through 52 contests.

  • Penguins' Evan Rodrigues: Ends eight-game point drought

    Rodrigues dished out a pair of assists in Tuesday's 6-3 win over the Coyotes.

    Rodrigues snapped an eight-game point drought with his pair of points, both of which came during a stretch of four unanswered Pittsburgh goals after the Coyotes took a 3-2 lead early in the third period. It's likely too late to sell high on Rodrigues, whose offense has dried up since he was dropped to a third-line role following Evgeni Malkin's return from a knee injury.

  • Penguins' Evan Rodrigues: Scoreless streak continues

    Rodrigues took five shots and added three hits in a 3-2 shootout win over the Jets on Sunday.

    Rodrigues has not scored since he put up five goals in three games to begin the new year. In eight games since, the 28-year-old is without a point, though he has taken 20 shots in that span. The center sits at 15 goals and 15 assists in 41 games.

  • Penguins' Evan Rodrigues: Posts two points in win

    Rodrigues scored a goal on three shots and added an assist, both on the power play, in Wednesday's 5-3 win over the Blues.

    Rodrigues has posted four multi-point efforts in his last eight games. His tally in Wednesday's contest stood as the game-winner, his second such goal this season. Rodrigues is thriving in a top-six role with 14 goals, 28 points, 108 shots on net and a plus-7 rating in 32 appearances. He needs just one point to match his career high of 29 from 74 contests with the Sabres in 2018-19.

  • Penguins' Evan Rodrigues: Hat trick against Sharks

    Rodrigues scored three goals, one on the power play, in Sunday's 8-5 win over the Sharks.

    Remarkably it wasn't even the biggest performance of the day for the Penguins, as Bryan Rust recorded a hat trick as well but added two helpers to his ledger. Rodrigues lit the lamp twice in the first period, then added a crucial insurance marker late in the third as San Jose was scrambling to find an equalizer after mounting a comeback from a 6-1 deficit. The 28-year-old is having a breakout campaign in a top-six role for Pittsburgh, racking up 13 goals and 26 points through 31 games.

  • Penguins' Evan Rodrigues: Clears COVID-19 protocols

    Rodrigues (COVID-19 protocols) exited the NHL's COVID-19 protocols Friday.

    While the Penguins will get Rodrigues back ahead of Sunday's clash with the Sharks, they also placed Jeff Carter in the protocols Friday. Even with the potential return of Jake Guentzel (upper body) and Bryan Rust (lower body), the 28-year-old Rodrigues figures to remain in a top-six role for the time being. In his last 10 outings, the Toronto native has registered three goals, all with the man advantage, and six assists.

  • Penguins' Evan Rodrigues: Lands on COVID-19 list

    Rodrigues was added to the COVID-19 protocols Sunday, according to Dave Molinari of

    Rodrigues is having a career-best season with the Penguins, as he has double-digit goals and assists for the first time since making his NHL debut all the way back in 2015. The Canadian center has 10 goals and 13 assists across 30 games this season.

  • Penguins' Evan Rodrigues: Wreaks havoc on former team

    Rodrigues deposited a power-play goal to complement nine shots on goal in Friday's 3-2 OT win over the Sabres.

    He nearly had a two-goal night, but an extensive review determined that Malcolm Subban made a spectacular save on Rodrigues' rebounded shot attempt. Still, his nine shots were a game high, and the top-line forward has now scored in back-to-back games to bring his season total to a career-high 10 tallies.

  • Penguins' Evan Rodrigues: Three points against Montreal

    Rodrigues scored a power-play goal and added two even-strength assists in Tuesday's 5-2 win over the Canadiens.

The 28-year-old Rodrigues is up to eight goals, 10 helpers, 82 shots on net, 28 hits and a plus-5 rating in 25 contests. He'll continue to have appeal in both season-long and DFS formats while skating alongside Guentzel and Sidney Crosby.

  • Penguins' Evan Rodrigues: Generates helper in loss

    Rodrigues notched an assist, fired six shots on goal, levied four hits and went minus-3 in Wednesday's 5-2 loss to the Oilers.

    Rodrigues set up a Teddy Blueger goal a minute into the second period. With Bryan Rust (lower body) on injured reserve, Rodrigues has ascended to the top line with Sidney Crosby and Jake Guentzel. That fruitful role has seen Rodrigues pick up a goal and an assist in the last four games. The 28-year-old is up to 16 points, 76 shots, 27 hits and an even plus-minus rating in 23 appearances overall. He'll remain a solid depth forward in fantasy while playing in the Penguins' top six.
