  • Penguins' Tanner Pearson: Officially traded

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (11/14/18) Pearson's move to Pittsburgh from Los Angeles in exchange for Carl Hagelin has officially gone through, the team announced Wednesday.

    Pearson could get a look on the top line with Sidney Crosby or he could replace Hagelin straight up on Evgeni Malkin's line. The 26-year-old winger has managed just one helper in 17 games this season and is still looking for his first goal of the 2018-19 campaign. The Ontario native did hit the 20-goal mark back in 2016-17 and could do so again playing with some of the Penguins' top stars.

    Penguins' Tanner Pearson: Headed to East Coast

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (11/14/18) Pearson, reportedly, was acquired by the Penguins from the Kings on Wednesday, per Jason Mackey of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette.

    Pearson will bolster Pittsburgh's left-wing depth, which has been lacking of late -- other than Jake Guentzel -- and should provide an additional depth scoring option. The Ontario native has yet to tally a goal this season and has just one assist in 17 games, which likely explains why the Kings were willing to offload him. While he may not start there, Pearson could see time playing on the top line with Sidney Crosby, which would certainly give him significant fantasy value as long as he remained in that role. Considering his $3.75 million cap hit, Los Angeles almost certainly had to retain some of his salary.

    Kings' Tanner Pearson: Drought continues

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (10/26/18) Pearson was held scoreless for the ninth straight game in a 4-1 loss to Minnesota on Thursday.

    This isn't going according to plan for either Pearson or the Kings. He was supposed to take a step forward this year after back-to-back 40-point campaigns, but instead, he's done nothing since Opening Night. With Los Angeles playing some of its worst hockey in quite a while, it's a good idea to bench Pearson until he's out of this funk, and dropping him entirely isn't out of the question.

    Kings' Tanner Pearson: Hits assist in loss

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (10/6/18) Pearson helped out on Tyler Toffoli's game-tying goal in the second period of a 3-2 overtime loss to San Jose on Friday.

    Pearson seems to have picked up right where he left off a year ago by getting on the scoresheet with a helper. Assists were the source of 62.5 percent of his points last year in a 40-point season, and so far, he's off to a similar start in 2018-19.

    Kings' Tanner Pearson: Key player for coach Stevens

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (9/15/18) Kings head coach John Stevens is heavily counting on Pearson to perform this season, Jon Rosen of LA Kings Insider reports.

    The bench boss was asked if Pearson will have a "shorter leash" this season after slipping from a career-high 24 goals in 2016-17 to a 15-spot last year, but Stevens said he wouldn't use such terminology to describe his approach with Pearson this season. Instead, Stevens pointed out how Pearson provides intangibles that don't necessarily show up in the box score. "We have big expectations of Tanner taking a lot of responsibility and really solidifying the top-six in our hockey team," he said.
