  • Penguins' Danton Heinen: Back with Pittsburgh

    Heinen signed a one-year, $1 million contract with the Penguins on Wednesday. Heinen was not qualified by the Penguins earlier this month, but that allowed them to get him back at a slightly lower salary. The 27-year-old had a career-high 18 goals with 15 assists and 138 shots on net in 76 contests with the Pens last year, so he's a good bet to make the Opening Night roster in a middle-six role. He'll be an unrestricted free agent next summer.

  • Penguins' Danton Heinen: Becomes unrestricted free agent

    Heinen did not receive a qualifying offer from the Penguins on Monday, Seth Rorabaugh of reports. Heinen tallied a career-high 18 goals with 33 points through 76 games with Pittsburgh last season. The 27-year-old winger laid out 66 hits while putting 138 shots on goal, both new career highs. He can offer some cheap scoring touch to a team looking to round out its forward group this offseason.

  • Penguins' Danton Heinen: Sets new goal mark

    Heinen registered a career-high 18 goals in 76 games this season, adding 15 assists and 66 hits along the way. Heinen often found himself stepping into a top-six role when injuries necessitated a promotion, which no doubt helped him reach his new personal best. With a strong season under his belt, the 26-year-old center could have plenty of options this summer but could be convinced to stay in Pittsburgh, where he could play with the likes of Evgeni Malkin or Jeff Carter as his center.

  • Penguins' Danton Heinen: Nets game-winner Saturday

    Heinen scored a goal on four shots, added four PIM and doled out three hits in Saturday's 7-4 win over the Rangers in Game 3. Heinen took a couple of penalties in the contest, but the Rangers weren't able to cash in on the power play. The 26-year-old then made up for it by scoring off of a turnover to give the Penguins a 5-4 lead at 11:02 of the third period. The tally was his first point in three games against the Rangers in this first-round playoff series. Heinen posted 33 points and 138 shots on net in 76 regular-season contests, mainly in a similar middle-six role as he's seen in the postseason.

  • Penguins' Danton Heinen: Scores goal in win

    Heinen scored a goal on three shots in Thursday's 6-3 win over the Islanders. Heinen now has goals in back-to-back games after being held to a single point (an assist) in his previous seven contests. The goal was the 16th of the season for the 26-year-old forward, matching his career-high. Heinen has shown some flashes of offensive potential in his five full NHL seasons but has yet to put together an extended stretch of consistent production. He's seen his ice time dwindle recently, bouncing between Pittsburgh's third and fourth lines, making it hard to expect a continuation of his brief goal-scoring streak.

  • Penguins' Danton Heinen: Will suit up against Avs

    Heinen (illness) will be in action versus Colorado on Tuesday, Wes Crosby of reports. Heinen has managed 14 goals and 13 assists in 64 games this season but has struggled for consistency. The British Columbia native is currently in a three-game pointless streak after having previously scored in consecutive contests for the seventh time this year. As such, Heinen shouldn't be expected to offer more than mid-range fantasy value.
