  • Penguins' Pierre-Olivier Joseph: Added to roster

    Joseph was recalled from AHL Wilkes-Barre Scranton on Tuesday.

    It would take several injuries on the Penguins' blue line for Joseph to break into the lineup during the postseason. Looking ahead to the 2021-22 campaign, the youngster should be in the mix for a regular spot on the 23-man roster, especially if one of the team's other defensemen ends up in Seattle.

  • Penguins' Pierre-Olivier Joseph: Sent down to minors

    Joseph was reassigned to AHL Wilkes-Barre/Scranton on Friday.

    Joseph's demotion could be an indication that Brian Dumoulin (lower body) will be available to jump back into the lineup against the Flyers on Saturday. Joseph has been watching from the press box as a member of the taxi squad for the club's last two contests and his reassignment will provide him the much-needed opportunity to log big minutes.

  • Penguins' Pierre-Olivier Joseph: Returned to taxi squad

    Joseph was reassigned to Pittsburgh's taxi squad Tuesday.

    Joseph has been in the Penguins' lineup for 16 straight games, so this move comes as a bit of a surprise. The 21-year-old rookie has tallied five points in his 16 top-level appearances this season.

  • Penguins' Pierre-Olivier Joseph: Back on active roster

    Joseph was promoted from the taxi squad ahead of Thursday's game versus the Capitals, Seth Rorabaugh of reports.

    This move was expected. Joseph will take the ice in Thursday's rivalry game. His role has taken a hit recently with less than 17 minutes per contest over the last six games, and he didn't register any points during that stretch.

  • Penguins' Pierre-Olivier Joseph: Shifts down in paper move

    Joseph was assigned to the taxi squad Wednesday, per CapFriendly.

    Joseph is expected to be back on the active roster for Thursday's road game versus the Capitals. He's suited up in 13 straight games, recording five points, 22 shots on net and 21 hits.

  • Penguins' Pierre-Olivier Joseph: Back on active roster

    Joseph was added to the active roster and will play in Tuesday's game against the Capitals, per CBS Sports.

    Joseph continues to shuffle between the taxi squad and active roster in a cap-saving measure for the team. He's played the last 12 games for the Penguins, earning five points to go along with 17:58 of average ice time over that span. Joseph will continue to stay on the team's top defensive pairing with Kris Letang for Thursday's game.

  • Penguins' Pierre-Olivier Joseph: Assigned to taxi squad

    Joseph was assigned to the taxi squad Monday, per CBS Sports.

    Joseph has averaged 17:58 per game this season, so this is likely a paper move for the young blueliner. He has five points and 20 shots on goal through 12 appearances.

  • Penguins' Pierre-Olivier Joseph: Picks up first NHL goal

    Joseph scored on his only shot and was plus-2 in Saturday's 4-3 loss to the Islanders.

    Joseph started and finished a rush in the first period, picking the top corner from the left circle for his first NHL goal with 6:17 left in the frame. The 21-year-old, a first-round pick by Arizona in 2017, has five points through his first seven games and is plus-5. Joseph is also logging heavy minutes (22:04 TOI on Saturday) and if you're looking to take a speculative flier on a defenseman, you could do worse than Joseph right now.

  • Penguins' Pierre-Olivier Joseph: Big night for rookie

    Joseph handed out three assists and was plus-3 in Saturday's 5-4 overtime win over the Rangers. He also had two PIM, two shots and one hit.

    It was a breakout offensive performance by the rookie, who assisted on a pair of first-period goals before setting up Sidney Crosby's overtime winner. Joseph was a workhorse in just his fifth NHL game; his 25:58 of ice time ranked second among Pittsburgh skaters behind only John Marino. A first-round pick in 2017, Joseph has a chance to establish himself while multiple Pittsburgh defensemen work their way back from injuries. Don't rush out to pick him up just yet, but the combination of pedigree and opportunity means fantasy managers should probably keep an eye on him.

  • Penguins' Pierre-Olivier Joseph: Elevated from taxi squad

    Joseph was recalled from the taxi squad by the Penguins on Friday under emergency conditions.

    With Mike Matheson (upper body), Marcus Pettersson (upper body) and Juuso Riikola (upper body) all set to miss some time, Joesph is set to make his NHL debut against the Rangers on Friday. Originally drafted by the Coyotes with the 23rd overall pick in the 2017 NHL Entry Draft, the Penguins acquired the 21-year-old blueliner as part of the Phil Kessel deal back in June of 2019. In 52 games for the Baby Pens last year, the Quebec native registered three goals and 14 helpers, showing he's capable of providing some offensive upside.

  • Penguins' Pierre-Olivier Joseph: Added to camp roster

    Joseph has been included in the Penguins' training camp roster.

    Acquired by the club as part of the Phil Kessel deal, Joseph registered 17 points in 52 games for AHL Wilkes-Barre/Scranton this season. A strong camp from the 21-year-old defenseman could convince the club to give him a spot on the 23-man roster ahead of the 2020-21 campaign and to part ways with Juuso Riikola. In addition to Joseph, the club brought in forwards Philip Varone, Adam Johnson, Sam Miletic and Samuel Poulin, defenseman Kevin Czuczman and netminders Casey DeSmith and Alex D'Orio.

  • Penguins' Pierre-Olivier Joseph: Sent to Penguins in Kessel deal

    Joseph and Alex Galchenyuk were traded to the Penguins from the Coyotes for Phil Kessel, Dane Birks and a 2021 fourth-round pick, Darren Dreger of TSN reports.

    Joseph was the 23rd overall pick in 2017 and split time between Charlottetown and Drummondville in the juniors last season. The 6-foot-2 defenseman will turn 20 on July 1. Joseph tallied 39 points in 47 games in 2018-19.

  • Coyotes' Pierre-Olivier Joseph: Developing well in QMJHL

    Joseph tallied a goal and an assist in QMJHL Drummondville's 8-1 win over Sherbrooke on Wednesday.

    One of the more unheralded prospects in the league, Joseph continues to go about his business in the "Q" with little fanfare. The 2017 first-round selection (23rd overall) of the Coyotes now has 39 points in 47 contests in a season in which he has split time between Charlottetown and Drummondville. Joseph logs big minutes in all situations for the Voltigeurs and there is an outside chance that he could find himself playing in Arizona next season. Deeper dynasty league owners need to take notice here.

  • Coyotes' Pierre-Olivier Joseph: Bulking up key to taking next step

    Joseph, heading into Coyotes Rookie Camp, is committed to bulking up ahead of the 2018-19 season, Dave Vest of the Coyotes' official site reports.

    Drafted 23rd overall in the 2017 NHL Entry Draft, Joseph believes that adding weight to his 168-pound frame will be critical in his bid to earn an NHL roster spot for the 2018-19 season. Coming off a 46-point campaign in juniors a season ago, the Coyotes are high on the 6-foot-2 defenseman, and if Joseph can duplicate his training camp performance from last year, he may find himself riding planes rather than buses. He's not worth a draft pick just yet but depending on how he performs in camp, Joseph could be a sneaky late addition to your roster.
