  • Penguins' Matt Hunwick: Observing from press box

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (5/10/18) Hunwick spent the entire 2018 Stanley Cup Playoffs watching his team from the press box.

    With Chad Ruhwedel turning himself into a penalty-kill expert, there simply wasn't a spot in the lineup available for Hunwick. Signed on the opening day of free agency last summer, Hunwick was supposed to help Pittsburgh replace the departing Ron Hainsey with another capable veteran blueliner. Unfortunately, it didn't work out this year, as injuries and poor play led to the 32-year-old Hunwick logging a mere 42 contests. The Penguins are locked into a deal with the Michigan native for another two seasons at $2.25 million -- unless they can find a way to move him.

    Penguins' Matt Hunwick: Watching team play

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (4/24/18) Hunwick was relegated to an observer role for Pittsburgh's entire first-round matchup with Philadelphia.

    Hunwick has actually been a healthy scratch in 20 of the Pens' prior 23 outings dating back to March 1. The defenseman has seen his spot on the blue line taken over by Chad Ruhwedel, who has turned himself into a penalty-kill specialist. At this point, the 32-year-old Hunwick will probably need somebody to pick up an injury in order to get into the lineup.

    Penguins' Matt Hunwick: Racks up five PIM

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (3/30/18) Hunwick picked up a five-minute fighting major in his return to the Penguins lineup against the Devils on Thursday.

    Hunwick served as a healthy scratch for 12 straight outings before being inserted into the lineup versus New Jersey. The defenseman's biggest contribution was dropping the gloves with Miles Wood, earning five PIM in the process. The Michigan native's spot on the blue line should be considered tenuous at best, as he will need to hold off Chad Ruhwedel.

    Penguins' Matt Hunwick: Struggling for minutes

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (3/8/18) Hunwick has served as a healthy scratch in three consecutive games.

    Offensively, Hunwick performed well in his return from an upper-body issue -- four points in six games -- but defensive lapses (a minus-3 rating) amid a three-game losing streak led coach Mike Sullivan to reintroduce Chad Ruhwedel into the lineup. With the Pens seemingly back on track, it likely will take an injury or extremely poor outing by one of his fellow blueliners for Hunwick to get another crack.

    Penguins' Matt Hunwick: Ruled out Tuesday

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (1/30/18) Hunwick (upper body) will watch from the press box against the Sharks on Tuesday, Wes Crosby of NHL.com reports.

    Hunwick will be sidelined for a second straight game due to his upper-body malady. With the Michigan native unable to suit up, Ian Cole will continue to deputize in his stead. Most fantasy owners are unlikely to be affected by the blueliner's absence, considering he has registered a mere five points, 45 shots and 48 blocks in his 33 appearances this season.
