Canadiens' Joseph Blandisi: Shipped to Montreal
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Blandisi was part of a two-for-two player trade Thursday that will send both him and Jake Lucchini from the Penguins to the Canadiens for Riley Barber and Philip Varone.

Blandisi has seen a fair amount of action between the NHL and AHL over the last few seasons, posting five points (two goals, three assists) over 21 games with the Penguins in 2019-20. He will get a change of scenery that could bring with it a larger opportunity for action with the big club in Montreal.

Penguins' Joseph Blandisi: Sent to bus league
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Blandisi was sent down to AHL Wilkes-Barre/Scranton on Tuesday.

Blandisi was a healthy scratch for two games during his most recent stint with the Penguins. He'll continue to bounce between the two leagues, serving in a depth role while with the parent club.

Penguins' Joseph Blandisi: Returning to big club
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Penguins recalled Blandisi from AHL Wilkes-Barre/Scranton on Monday.

Blandisi has bounced around between the NHL and AHL levels this season as the Penguins have dealt with various injuries. He's tallied five points in 21 games with the big club. It's unclear if the 25-year-old will be in the lineup for Tuesday's game in Philadelphia.

Penguins' Joseph Blandisi: Sent to AHL affiliate
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Penguins assigned Blandisi to AHL Wilkes-Barre/Scranton on Tuesday.

Blandisi's demotion paves the way for Sidney Crosby (groin) to return to action Tuesday against Minnesota. The 25-year-old picked up an assist while posting a minus-2 rating in five appearances during his stay with the big club.

Penguins' Joseph Blandisi: Designated for waivers
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Blandisi was placed on waivers by the Penguins on Wednesday, Renaud Lavoie of TVA Sports reports.

By waiving Blandisi, Pittsburgh is clearing the way for him to eventually be reassigned to the minors, which would free up a roster spot to activate a certain captain off injured reserve. The move could just be a precursor, which means Blandisi's potential demotion to the minors will likely depend on Sidney Crosby's (groin) availability against Colorado on Friday.

Penguins' Joseph Blandisi: Produces assist in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Blandisi recorded an assist, two hits and two PIM in Monday's 5-2 win over the Senators.

Blandisi found Dominik Simon for the tally at 11:44 of the first period. Through 18 games this year, the 25-year-old center has five points, 12 shots on goal and 24 hits. He's used in a low-scoring, bottom-six role, which will keep fantasy owners from paying much attention.

Penguins' Joseph Blandisi: Recalled from minors
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Blandisi was promoted from AHL Wilkes-Barre/Scranton on Friday.

Blandisi figures to slot into a fourth-line center role with Sidney Crosby (groin) and Nick Bjugstad (groin) both still on injured reserve. The team also called up Thomas Di Pauli, but the 25-year-old Blandisi has already appeared in 16 games for the Penguins this season. In those outings, the Ontario native has notched two goals, two helpers and 10 shots while averaging a mere 8:31 of ice time.

Penguins' Joseph Blandisi: Heads to minors
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Penguins assigned Blandisi to AHL Wilkes-Barre/Scranton on Sunday.

Blandisi has played 16 games at the top level this year, recording two goals and two assists. The Penguins don't play again until Friday, but there's no guarantee Blandisi will be back up for that contest, as Sidney Crosby (groin) could be back by then.

Penguins' Joseph Blandisi: Promoted to top level
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Penguins recalled Blandisi from AHL Wilkes-Barre/Scranton on Saturday.

Blandisi's promotion indicates Evgeni Malkin (illness) likely won't be available Saturday against L.A. If Malkin is in fact unable to go, Blandisi will slot into a bottom-six role against the Kings.

December 13, 2019 01:08 PM
Penguins' Joseph Blandisi: Headed back to minors
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Blandisi was reassigned to AHL Wilkes-Barre/Scranton on Friday.

Blandisi logged 9:04 of ice time in Thursday night's matchup with Columbus as a result of Evgeni Malkin (illness) being out of the lineup. The Penguins shipping Blandisi back to the Baby Pens bodes well for Malkin's return versus the Kings on Saturday. At this point, Blandisi should be considered a fringe NHL player, but he could earn the occasional call-up as injuries dictate.

Penguins' Joseph Blandisi: Recalled from minors
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Blandisi was emergency recalled from AHL Wilkes-Barre/Scranton on Thursday.

The Penguins don't currently have an extra healthy forward on the 23-man roster, so Blandisi's promotion could be as simple as providing depth heading into Thursday's clash, though it could also be a sign that another player picked up an injury or illness. If the center does slot into the lineup versus Columbus, it will almost certainly be in a bottom-six role.

Penguins' Joseph Blandisi: Shifted to AHL
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Penguins reassigned Blandisi to AHL Wilkes-Barre/Scranton on Sunday.

The 25-year-old was designated for waivers Dec. 2, but with no team staking a claim, he'll shift down to the Penguins' minor league affiliate. Blandisi's demotion likely won't shake things too much from a fantasy perspective, as he's scored one goal and three points in 11 games this year.

Penguins' Joseph Blandisi: Still up with big club
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Despite his designation for waivers, Blandisi is still practicing with the Penguins on Tuesday, Pens Inside Scoop reports.

The move to waive Blandisi may be as simple as providing the club with the roster flexibility it needs down the road, rather than a demotion to the minors. With the injuries piling up for Pittsburgh, Blandisi could be in the NHL for another extended stretch.

Penguins' Joseph Blandisi: Drops to waivers
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Penguins waived Blandisi for the purpose of reassignment to AHL Wilkes-Barre/Scranton on Monday, Elliotte Friedman of Sportsnet reports.

Blandisi is no longer exempt from waivers after playing in Saturday's loss to the Blues, so the Penguins are hoping to sneak the 25-year-old to the minors. The center has averaged 9:11 of ice time and recorded three points through 10 games.

Penguins' Joseph Blandisi: Rejoins big club
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Blandisi was recalled from AHL Wilkes-Barre/Scranton by the Penguins on Friday.

Blandisi will join the big club ahead of a back-to-back set in Columbus and St. Louis. It remains to be seen whether he'll work into the lineup in either game.

Penguins' Joseph Blandisi: Heads back to minors
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Penguins assigned Blandisi to AHL Wilkes-Barre/Scranton on Saturday, Wes Crosby of NHL.com reports.

Blandisi has been a healthy scratch for the last two games at the top level, so he'll look to get some game action in the minors Saturday versus AHL Charlotte. The Penguins may recall him to add depth for Monday's matchup against the Flames. The 25-year-old has posted two points in nine NHL games.

Penguins' Joseph Blandisi: Rises to big club
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Penguins recalled Blandisi from AHL Wilkes-Barre/Scranton on an emergency basis Saturday, Wes Crosby of NHL.com reports.

With Sidney Crosby (groin) on injured reserve and Nick Bjugstad (lower body) on the mend, the Penguins called up Blandisi to enter the lineup Saturday against the Maple Leafs. The 25-year-old suited up in seven games with the Penguins in October, recording a goal, an assist and three shots on net.

Penguins' Joseph Blandisi: Dropped down a level
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Blandisi was demoted to AHL Wilkes-Barre/Scranton on Monday.

Blandisi scored a goal and an assist in his first two games this season but had been held off the scoresheet in his last five appearances. With the Penguins finally getting major players back from injured reserve, there was no room left with the big club for Blandisi or Adam Johnson, who was also sent back to the AHL level.

Penguins' Joseph Blandisi: Scores in season debut
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Blandisi scored a goal on two shots in Saturday's 7-4 win over the Wild.

Blandisi capped off a three-goal stretch in 2:28 for the Penguins with his first tally of the year. It would ultimately count as the game-winner. Blandisi didn't register a point in nine games at the NHL level between the Penguins and Ducks last year, but he had 17 goals and 26 helpers in 53 games with the Ducks' AHL affiliate. Expect the 25-year-old to remain in a fourth-line role while up with the big club.

Penguins' Joseph Blandisi: Summoned by parent club
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Penguins recalled Blandisi from AHL Wilkes-Barre/Scranton on Friday.

Pittsburgh is currently dealing with a ton of injuries up front, so Blandisi will likely slot into the lineup right away Saturday against Minnesota. The 25-year-old racked up 43 points in 54 AHL appearances last season.
