  • Penguins' Erik Gudbranson: Garners helper

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (3/24/19) Gudbranson picked up an assist in Saturday's 3-2 victory over Dallas.

    Gudbranson ended an 11-game pointless streak with his tally, but is still looking for his first goal in a Penguins uniform. The blueliner was brought in at the trade deadline for his defensive capabilities and physical style of play, so fans and fantasy owners shouldn't be banking on him for offensive output.

    Penguins' Erik Gudbranson: Impresses new coach

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (3/2/19) Making his Penguins debut, Gudbranson registered a blocked shot, two hits and three shots on goal over 20:19 of ice time in Friday's 4-3 overtime loss to the Sabres.

    While the rugged defenseman admitted to being nervous for his introductory contest, he ended up drawing praise from head coach Mike Sullivan. "I thought he played really well," Sullivan said in a report by the Pittsburgh-Post Gazette. "He moved the puck. He was physical. You could see the edge he plays with. I thought he had a strong game." As part of the 2018-19 campaign, Gudbranson stacked two goals and six assists against a minus-27 rating with the Canucks prior to joining the Pens at the trade deadline.

    Penguins' Erik Gudbranson: Arrives in Steel City

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (2/27/19) Gudbranson (immigration issues) joined the Penguins for Wednesday's practice and should be available against Buffalo on Friday.

    Gudbranson's arrival comes just in time for Pittsburgh, as the club could be facing the loss of Chad Ruhwedel (upper body), who was injured in Tuesday's clash with Columbus. The 26-year-old Gudbranson figures to take on big minutes with his new club and will likely log more than his 17:59 season average with Vancouver.

    Penguins' Erik Gudbranson: Immigration issues delay debut

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (2/25/19) Gudbranson will not be ready to play Tuesday versus Columbus due to immigration issues, Jason Mackey of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports.

    Thought to be ready to provide immediate reinforcement on the blue line, Gudbranson's immigration issues will prevent him from facing the Blue Jackets in Columbus on Tuesday, leaving the Penguins very thin on the back end. Pittsburgh's newest defenseman will hope to have his affairs in order in time to dress Friday in Buffalo.

    Penguins' Erik Gudbranson: Brought in via trade

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (2/25/19) Gudbranson was acquired by the Penguins from the Canucks on Monday in exchange for Tanner Pearson, Bob McKenzie of TSN reports.

    Gudbranson will likely need to slot into the lineup for the Penguins right away against the Blue Jackets on Tuesday, as the club will be without Brian Dumoulin (concussion) or Kris Letang (upper body). Once the Pens get fully fit, Gudbranson could struggle for minutes on the blue line, especially come playoffs if Olli Maatta (shoulder) is given the green light.
