Blackhawks' Olli Maatta: Traded to Chicago
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Maatta was acquired by the Blackhawks from the Penguins on Saturday in exchange for forward Dominik Kahun and a 2019 fifth-round pick.

Maatta missed some time due to a shoulder injury this season and had one goal and 13 assists in 60 games with the Penguins. The 24-year-old averaged 18:35 of ice time and was third on the team with 116 blocked shots.

Penguins' Olli Maatta: Taken off injured reserve
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Maatta (shoulder) has been activated off injured reserve, per the NHL's official media site.

While he's officially a game-time decision, Maatta's activation from IR removes doubt that he will gain clearance against the Preds. With Kris Letang (upper body) still on the shelf, Maatta should get a look on the second power-play unit as well. Looking ahead to the rest of the season, once Tanger is cleared to play, Maatta may struggle to hold off Marcus Pettersson for the final spot on the Pens blue line.

Penguins' Olli Maatta: Targeting Friday return
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Maatta (shoulder) is considered a game-time decision for Friday's matchup with the Predators, Michelle Crechiolo of Pens Inside Scoop reports.

Maatta's potential return would help bolster a blue line that might still be without the services of Kris Letang (upper body) on Friday. The 24-year-old Maatta missed the last 21 games due to his shoulder injury. Whenever the Finn does slot back into the lineup, he figures to find himself on the second power-play unit as well, where he's notched four of his 13 points this season.

Penguins' Olli Maatta: Remains out Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Maatta (shoulder) will remain sidelined Monday against the Rangers, Penguins Play-by-Play voice Josh Getzoff reports.

Maatta's next chance to take part in his first game action since Feb. 11 will come Friday against Nashville.

Penguins' Olli Maatta: Still awaiting game clearance
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Maatta (shoulder) has not been cleared to play Saturday against the Stars, Jeff Miller of NHL.com reports.

Maatta has made a big step forward by gaining clearance for contact at practice, but there's still no clear date for his return to the lineup. Even when he's cleared to play, there's no guarantee he will draw in nightly over Marcus Pettersson.

Penguins' Olli Maatta: Cleared for contact
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Maatta (shoulder) took the ice in a regular sweater Thursday and has been cleared for contact, Josh Getzoff of PensTV reports.

While it is too soon for Maatta to slot into the lineup versus Nashville on Thursday, the door is open for him to possibly return as early as Saturday's matchup with Dallas. Even once cleared to play, the blueliner may not be able to work his way into the lineup over Marcus Pettersson.

Penguins' Olli Maatta: Takes ice for morning skate
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Maatta (shoulder) took part in Tuesday's game-day skate in a non-contact sweater, Michelle Crechiolo of Pens Inside Scoop reports.

Considering Maatta hasn't been cleared for contact, the blueliner won't be ready to suit up versus the Hurricanes on Tuesday. Still, the fact that the Finn is traveling with the team is a good indication he could be ready to go during the team's four-game road trip. Even once cleared to play, however, Maatta could struggle to break into the lineup over Marcus Pettersson and might be forced to serve as a healthy scratch.

Penguins' Olli Maatta: Skating on his own
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Maatta (shoulder) was spotted skating on his own Monday by Jason Mackey of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette.

Maatta was joined by fellow injured blueliner Kris Letang (upper body). This is a step in the right direction for both players, but each will need to prove capable of taking contact before being granted the green light to participate in game action.

Penguins' Olli Maatta: Nature of injury more clear
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Maatta has a "fairly severe shoulder separation" and is expected to miss at least a month, Josh Yohe of The Athletic reports.

It was expected that Maatta suffered a shoulder injury, but it's now clear he has a serious issue. Justin Schultz (lower leg) will be returning from injured reserve soon so the Penguins will simply place him into Maatta's spot in the lineup. Maatta could be a candidate for long-term injured reserve to give the Pens salary cap relief.

Penguins' Olli Maatta: Out indefinitely
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Maatta (upper body) was placed on injured reserve Tuesday and is out indefinitely after getting hurt in Monday's clash with Philadelphia.

Maatta appeared to injure his shoulder on the hit Monday, though the team won't confirm anything beyond an upper-body issue. The Pens may not need to call up a player from the minors, as Justin Schultz (lower leg) is nearing a return to the lineup and could replace Maatta on the 23-man roster. If Schultz isn't ready for Wednesday's matchup with Edmonton, Chad Ruhwedel figures to slot in for Maatta.

Penguins' Olli Maatta: Being evaluated Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Maatta suffered an upper-body injury Monday against the Flyers and will be further evaluated Tuesday.

Maatta was injured in the first period Monday and did not return to the game. If he misses Wednesday's game against Edmonton, he will likely be replaced by Justin Schultz (lower leg) or Chad Ruhwedel.

Penguins' Olli Maatta: Leaves Monday's game
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Maatta (undisclosed) did not return to Monday's game against the Flyers.

Maatta took a hit in the corner and spilled into the boards, seemingly jamming his shoulder in the process. The incident happened during the first period and he did not return to the game. An update on his status should be available after the game. Fortunately for the Penguins, Justin Schultz (lower leg) is almost ready to return to action.

Penguins' Olli Maatta: Records two points in 2019
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Maatta has been limited to just one goal and one assist since the start of 2019 (nine games).

After playing all 82 games last season, in which he tallied 29 points, it appears Maatta had put his health and injury woes behind him and returned to the offensive contributor he was during his rookie campaign. While the Finn has missed just one contest this year, his offensive production has been limited, as he has a meager 12 points in 47 outings. With Marcus Pettersson rolling since joining the Pens (eight points in 23 games), Maatta could be in danger of seeing his minutes drop if he can't figure out the offensive side of his game.

Penguins' Olli Maatta: Ready for action
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Maatta (lower body) was on the ice for warmups Monday, which suggests that he'll be fit to play against the Wild, Jonathan Bombulie of TribLive.com reports.

Maatta reportedly took line rushes with Juuso Riikola, and since that's a typical arrangement, fantasy owners can count on both players being in action against the Wild. Maatta hasn't scored despite setting 43 shots on goal this season, but he does have 10 helpers through 37 games to stay relevant in deep fantasy leagues.

Penguins' Olli Maatta: Game-time decision
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Maatta is a game-time decision ahead of Monday's game against the Wild.

Maatta was banged up in Pittsburgh's last game but has a chance to face Minnesota. Alternatively, the team could err on the side of caution and sit him for a game. The 24-year-old is goalless in 37 games this season but does have 10 assists. If Maatta can't go, expect Jamie Oleksiak to take his place on the blue line.

Penguins' Olli Maatta: Suffers lower-body injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Maatta (lower body) is day-to-day according to head coach Mike Sullivan.

Maatta has played in all but one game this season for Pittsburgh, recording 10 assists in 37 games. His status for Monday's game in Minnesota is uncertain at this point and if he can't suit up, Jamie Oleksiak will likely replace him in the lineup.

Penguins' Olli Maatta: Goalless to start season
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Maatta is still looking for his first goal of the 2018-19 campaign, despite having played in all but one of the Penguins' 36 games.

While few were looking for Maatta to suddenly start putting up Erik Karlsson like numbers, expectations were elevated for the blueliner after scoring seven goals and 29 points last year. While he has still managed to notch 10 helpers, the lack of scoring from the Finn could see him serving as a healthy scratch from time to time once Jamie Oleksiak (concussion) and Justin Schultz (lower leg) are both healthy.

Penguins' Olli Maatta: Bags assist
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Maatta recorded a helper versus the Stars on Wednesday.

While Maatta did manage to tally his sixth assist, he is still looking for his first goal of the season. The fact that the Finn has put a mere 25 pucks on net in 19 outings certainly won't improve his chances of tickling the twine any time soon.

Penguins' Olli Maatta: Garners assist against Devils
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Maatta picked up an assist on the Penguins' lone goal versus New Jersey on Monday.

Maatta started the season on a six-game pointless streak that also saw him benched for one game, but appears to have rediscovered his offense, as he has tallied four assists in his previous six contests. The blueliner put nine shots on goal in his last half dozen outings and could get his first goal of the 2018-19 campaign soon.

October 26, 2018 12:13 PM
Penguins' Olli Maatta: Snags helper Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Maatta picked up an assist in Thursday's 9-1 victory over the Flames.

It was the first point of the 2018-19 campaign for Maatta, who has been struggling this season and has been already been benched once this year. The Finn would have been hard pressed not to earn a point considering how many goals the Pens piled on.
