  • Penguins' Nick Bjugstad: Turns in rare multi-point effort

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (3/15/19) Bjugstad scored a goal and added a power-play assist in Thursday's 5-0 win over the Sabres.

    The two-point performance is Bjugstad's first since Oct. 20 and gives the 26-year-old 22 points through 53 games in 2018-19. He's been a solid addition to Pittsburgh's bottom six since being acquired from Florida.

    Penguins' Nick Bjugstad: Opens scoring against Bruins

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (3/10/19) Bjugstad netted his 10th goal of the year to start the scoring in Sunday's 4-2 win over the Bruins.

    Bjugstad is up to 20 points (10 goals and assists apiece) in 51 appearances between the Panthers and Penguins this season. He added four shots on goal in the contest while acting as the pivot on the third line. The center will almost assuredly come short of the career-high 48 points he had last season, but he plays a smaller and more defensively-oriented role in Pittsburgh behind Sidney Crosby and Evgeni Malkin up the middle of the ice.

    Penguins' Nick Bjugstad: Tickles twine

    (3/8/19) Bjugstad scored a goal in Thursday's 3-0 victory over Columbus.

    Bjugstad put a season high six shots on goal and was able to record his fourth goal in a Penguins sweater. The center figures to continue anchoring the third line along with playing on the second power-play unit. If he can continue to provide depth scoring, the club should like its chances of making a deep playoff run.

    Penguins' Nick Bjugstad: Struggling to produce

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (3/6/19) Bjugstad has managed just one goal in his last six contests.

    Slotted into the third-line center role, Bjugstad is logging 14:10 of ice time during his slump, but is seeing a mere 0:52 per game with the man advantage on the second unit. The Minneapolis native should continue to fill a bottom-six role heading down the stretch, but could get an upgrade on the wing once Bryan Rust (lower body) is given the green light.

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (2/19/19) Bjugstad's seventh goal of the season came on the man advantage in a 4-3 win over the Devils on Tuesday.

    Bjugstad's goal late in the first period tied the game 2-2, and the Penguins were able to take over in the second period en route to the victory. He added three shots and two hits in Tuesday's contest. In 10 games since being traded from the Panthers, Bjugstad has two goals and three assists while playing a third-line center role.
