  • Wild's Matt Cullen: Heading back home

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (8/16/17) Cullen agreed to terms on a one-year, $1million contract with the Wild on Wednesday, Michael Russo of the Star Tribune reports.

    Not ready to hang up his skates, Cullen will return for a 20th NHL campaign -- back with his home-state Minnesota Wild. The former second-round pick did have the chance for a three-peat with Pittsburgh, but has always stated that family comes first. The veteran will likely slot in as the fourth-line center and could see time on the penalty kill -- both roles he thrived in while with the Pens.

    Penguins' Matt Cullen: Hasn't finalized decision

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (6/15/17) Cullen is still considering whether to call it a career, Michelle Crechiolo of Pens Inside Scoop reports.

    Perhaps swayed by his teammates and fans chanting "one more year" throughout the Pens' championship celebrations, Cullen would almost certainly be welcomed back if he wanted to join Pittsburgh for a chance to three-peat. A critical component of the penalty kill -- where he averaged 3:09 per contest -- the 40-year-old has become an extension of the coaching staff. His productivity won't jump off the page -- 31 points this season -- but Cullen can still offer some fantasy value in deep formats if he opts to come back.

    Penguins' Matt Cullen: Likely to hang up skates

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (6/11/17) Cullen said that he's likely to retire after winning the Stanley Cup on Sunday, James Mirtle of The Athletic reports.

    With 745 points in 1489 career NHL contests, the 40-year-old has had quite the career, which has now been punctuated by his third Stanley Cup (two with Pittsburgh, one with Carolina). Despite his age, Cullen provided a solid source of secondary scoring in the regular season (31 points in 72 contests) before adding a pair of goals and seven assists in the postseason, so his absence from the Penguins' lineup won't be insignificant.

    Penguins' Matt Cullen: Expected to suit up Thursday

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (4/6/17) Cullen (undisclosed) will likely be in the lineup against the Devils on Thursday, Mike Morreale of NHL.com reports.

    Cullen took a heavy hit to the head and neck area in Tuesday's matchup, but he's bounced back quickly. Despite playing in a third-line role, the veteran has been one of the Penguins' more productive players of late, registering four points in his last six outings. With the veteran center seemingly ready to hit the ice, rookie Dominik Simon will likely watch the game from the press box.

    Penguins' Matt Cullen: Will be reevaluated Wednesday

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (4/4/17) Cullen (undisclosed) will be reevaluated Wednesday after leaving Tuesday's game against the Blue Jackets.

    It's uncertain what went wrong for Cullen, but he was one of three Penguins who required service in the locker room in a rough-and-tumble game. For now, consider Cullen day-to-day. He'll have a day to rest before the team next takes the ice Thursday in Newark.
