  • Penguins' Matt Cullen: Notches assist

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (2/27/19) Cullen garnered a helper versus the Blue Jackets on Tuesday.

    Any offensive contributions coming out of Cullen are bonuses for the club, as the 42-year-old is on the team to provide veteran leadership in the locker room and to kill penalties on the ice. The center is averaging 11:32 of ice time this season and 2:09 of that comes in shorthanded situations. Invaluable to the franchise, Cullen won't offer much in terms of production for fantasy owners.

    Penguins' Matt Cullen: Slides into third-line role

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (1/31/19) Cullen was bumped up to the Pens' third line against Tampa Bay on Wednesday.

    With Derick Brassard (upper body) sidelined, Cullen was promoted to the third line alongside Tanner Pearson and Patric Hornqvist. Unsurprisingly, the veteran logged 14:53 of ice time, his second-highest total this season. The Minnesota native will likely drop back to the fourth line once Brassard returns, though Cullen's promotion could become permanent if Brassard is shipped out at the trade deadline.

    Penguins' Matt Cullen: Riding three-game point streak

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (1/4/19) Cullen scored a goal and an assist in Friday's 4-0 win over the Jets.

    That's now four points in three games for the 42-year-old center, although his totals on the season (four goals and 10 points in 30 games) are far more modest. Cullen's role on the fourth line doesn't offer much fantasy potential, but the Penguins are deep enough on the wins that he still has decently talented linemates, giving him opportunities to make an occasional splash.

    Penguins' Matt Cullen: Two points since return

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (12/24/18) Cullen has two points and 10 shots on net in seven games since returning from a lengthy lower-body injury.

    At this point, Cullen is a veteran presence for Pittsburgh's fourth line. He's 42 years old, after all, and has averaged only 11:40 per game in ice time. At this point in his career, Cullen isn't likely to be able to take on a big enough role to move the fantasy needle.

    Penguins' Matt Cullen: Taken off IR

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (12/12/18) Cullen (lower body) has been activated off injured reserve ahead of Wednesday's matchup with Chicago, per the NHL media site.

    While technically still considered a game-time call based on coach Mike Sullivan's comments after practice Wednesday, the fact that the team removed Cullen's IR designation all but guarantees he will suit up versus the Hawks. The veteran figures to slot into a fourth-line center role, while Garrett Wilson is relegated to the press box.
