  • Red Wings' Matt Puempel: Dealt to Detroit

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (10/21/17) Puempel was traded to the Red Wings by the Rangers in exchange for defenseman Ryan Sproul.

    According to Bob McKenzie of TSN the Red Wings also traded forward Riley Sheahan and a 2018 fifth-round draft pick to the Penguins for winger Scott Wilson and a third-round pick next year. This is all a part of Detroit general manager Ken Holland's master plan to find cap room for Andreas Athanasiou, who just ended a lengthy contract holdout and signed for one-year and $1.3875 million. Both Puempel and Sproul were in the minors when these transactions went through.

    Rangers' Matt Puempel: Waived by Rangers

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (9/28/17) New York placed Puempel on waivers Thursday.

    Puempel has only appeared in 79 NHL contests since he was selected by the Senators in the first round of the 2011 draft, totaling a mere 15 points over that span. The 24-year-old winger will likely spend the majority of the 2017-18 campaign in the minors.

    Rangers' Matt Puempel: Preparing for fisticuffs

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (9/22/17) Puempel said he wants "to play harder, be more physical" this season, which includes fighting more, the New York Post reports.

    The 24-year-old forward suffered a pair of concussions last season, which he said prevented him from dropping the gloves much last season, but Puempel liked to mix it up in the AHL, and he fought the Devils' Nick Lappin in Wednesday's preseason game. That approach should net him some more PIM this season, but despite Puempel's first-round pedigree and minor-league success, he's never been able to win himself a significant NHL role, resulting in last season's nine points (in 40 games) representing his career high to this point.

    Rangers' Matt Puempel: Pens one-year deal

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (6/14/17) Puempel agreed to terms on a one-year contract with the Rangers on Wednesday, Brett Cyrgalis of the New York Post reports.

    Puempel's deal will help New York meet the forward exposure requirements for the Vegas expansion draft, although considering he managed a mere nine points in his 40 appearances this season, it seems unlikely that the 24-year-old will be selected by the Golden Knights. Until the winger can secure regular minutes, he will continue to be a bottom-end fantasy option.

    Rangers' Matt Puempel: Fires three shots in loss

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (4/6/17) Puempel recorded three shots on goal in Wednesday's loss to Washington.

    It took Puempel 9:53 of ice time to register those three shots. He has suited up in three of the past four games for the Rangers, recording one assist in the process. In his first full-time NHL season, Puempel has registered nine points (six goals, three assists) in 39 total games played -- 26 with New York, 13 with Ottawa. However, all of his points have come with the Rangers while serving as added depth on the Rangers' fourth line.
