Penguins' Kevin Czuczman: Back to AHL
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Czuczman was reassigned to AHL Wilkes-Barre/Scranton on Monday.

Czuczman skated in two games with the NHL club this season, his first taste of big-league action since the 2013-14 season. Barring another slew of injuries on the blue line, the 30-year-old should stay in the minors for most of the season.

Penguins' Kevin Czuczman: Back on taxi squad
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Czuczman was reassigned to the taxi squad Tuesday.

A multitude of injuries on the Penguins' blue line has seen Czuczman suiting up in NHL games for the first time since the 2013-14 season when he was with the Islanders. If Kris Letang (lower body) is available against New York on Saturday, Czuczman will likely serve as a healthy scratch, though he would still probably be elevated to the active roster before puck drop.

Penguins' Kevin Czuczman: Promoted from taxi squad
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Czuczman was added to the NHL roster Thursday and logged 12:41 of ice time against the Bruins.

Czuczman finds himself on the 23-man roster thanks to a raft of injuries on the Penguins blue line. Once new addition Yannick Weber is able to join the team, which should happen ahead of Saturday's clash with the Rangers, Czuczman figures to wind up back on the taxi squad.

Penguins' Kevin Czuczman: Recalled to taxi squad
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Czuczman was recalled from AHL Wilkes-Barre/Scranton to the taxi squad Monday, Mike DeFabo of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports.

With Mike Matheson (upper body) on injured reserve, Czuczman will provide an extra body for Pittsburgh's blue line if necessary. The 30-year-old has played just 13 NHL contests, all coming during the 2013-14 season. It's unlikely he'll make his way into the lineup anytime soon.

Penguins' Kevin Czuczman: Hits the waiver wire
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Pittsburgh placed Czuczman on waivers Sunday, Renaud Lavoie of TVA Sports reports.

Czuczman has been an alternate captain for AHL Wilkes-Barre/Scranton for the past three seasons, so he'll likely end up in the minors to start the 2020-21 campaign. The 30-year-old blueliner picked up 10 points in 38 games with the Baby Pens last season.

Penguins' Kevin Czuczman: Drops down to AHL
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Czuczman was reassigned to AHL Wilkes-Barre/Scranton on Tuesday.

The 29-year-old has served as the Penguins' seventh defenseman lately, but he hasn't drawn into a game this season. Czuczman will get some playing time in the minors, but he could be recalled if Justin Schultz (lower body) or Brian Dumoulin (ankle) aren't ready to go in time for a game against the Flyers on Jan. 31.

Penguins' Kevin Czuczman: Brought up from minors
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Czuczman was called up from AHL Wilkes-Barre/Scranton on Friday.

Czuczman served as a healthy scratch in two games prior to the Christmas break and will likely do so again versus Nashville on Friday. If the Ontario native does get into the lineup, it would probably come at the expense of Juuso Riikola. Once Brian Dumoulin (ankle) or Justin Schultz (lower body) is cleared to play, Czuczman figures to return to the minors.

Penguins' Kevin Czuczman: Shifted to AHL
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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

Czuczman failed to make his NHL debut for Pittsburgh even though he logged 13 games for the Islanders back in 2013-14. The 28-year-old has tallied one goal and eight points in 21 minor-league games. His demotion is a positive sign that Justin Schultz (lower body) could make his return to the ice soon.

Penguins' Kevin Czuczman: Promoted from minors
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Czuczman was recalled from AHL Wilkes-Barre/Scranton on Friday.

Czuczman has yet to make his NHL debut for Pittsburgh -- he logged 13 games for the Islanders back in 2013-14 -- and he's unlikely to do so against Edmonton or Vancouver on Friday and Saturday, respectively. The 28-year-old has tallied one goal, seven helpers and a plus-6 rating in 21 games with the Baby Pens and will likely head back to the minors once (if) Pittsburgh gets healthy.

Penguins' Kevin Czuczman: Headed for minors
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Czuczman was waived by the Penguins on Monday in order to reassign him to the minors.

Czuczman was never going to make the Penguins' Opening Night roster considering the club has eight blueliners already on one-way deals. The 28-year-old hasn't appeared in an NHL game since 2013-14 when he was with the Islanders and could struggle to break into Pittsburgh's lineup during the 2019-20 campaign.

Penguins' Kevin Czuczman: Inks two-year deal
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Czuczman secured a two-year, two-way contract with Pittsburgh on Wednesday worth $700,000 at the NHL level.

Czuczman hasn't appeared in an NHL game since the 2013-14 campaign when he was with the Islanders. Still, the 28-year-old has put together two solid seasons with the Baby Pens, a combined 56 points in 136 games, and should be atop the short list of potential call-ups throughout the upcoming season.

Penguins' Kevin Czuczman: Back in action with Baby Pens
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Czuczman (shoulder) has logged a pair of contests for AHL Wilkes-Barre/Scranton in which he racked up 12 PIM.

Czuczman's chance of securing a spot on the 23-man roster not only was hampered by his shoulder issue, but also the emergence of Juuse Rikkola.

Penguins' Kevin Czuczman: Going through waivers
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Czuczman was placed on waivers Sunday, Renaud Lavoie of TVA Sports reports.

This news is more of a formality of the league's injured-reserve rules than a sign of Czuczman's progress since he's still expected to remain out until December after undergoing offseason shoulder surgery. The 27-year-old will be expected to join AHL Wilkes-Barre/Scranton when the process is completed.

Penguins' Kevin Czuczman: Out long term
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Czuczman has been ruled out until at least December due to offseason shoulder surgery.

Czuczman was by no means guaranteed a spot on the 23-man roster this year, but his shoulder issue will only serve to limit his ability to break through with the Penguins. Chad Ruhwedel has the inside track for the seventh defenseman spot, so look for Czuczman to be reassigned to AHL Wilkes-Barre/Scranton once given the all-clear.

Penguins' Kevin Czuczman: Sustains undisclosed injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Czuczman was absent from training camp Friday due to an undisclosed issue.

Czuczman was expected to be the leading candidate to challenge Chad Ruhwedel for a spot on the 23-man roster; however, his injury could alter this training camp battle. Even if the 27-year-old Czuczman is able to earn a spot, it is unlikely he will find himself in the game-day lineup most nights.

Penguins' Kevin Czuczman: Re-ups for one year
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Czuczman signed a one-year, two-way deal with Pittsburgh on Monday.

Czuczman failed to crack the Penguins' lineup this past season, instead spending the entirety of the campaign with AHL Wilkes-Barre/Scranton. In the minors, the defenseman tallied 35 points in 71 contests along with a plus-15 rating. The 27-year-old last played in the NHL during the 2013-14, in which he logged 13 games for the Islanders.

Penguins' Kevin Czuczman: Sent down to minors
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Czuczman was reassigned to AHL Wilkes-Barre/Scranton on Tuesday.

Czuczman became the odd man odd when the Penguins traded for Jamie Oleksiak to bolster their blue line. The 26-year-old Czuczman will rejoin the Baby Pens, where he has tallied one goal and 13 helpers in 22 outings this season. Barring injuries, the defenseman will likely remain in the minors for the rest of the season.

Penguins' Kevin Czuczman: Brought up to NHL
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Czuczman was recalled from AHL Wilkes-Barre/Scranton on Saturday, Seth Rorabaugh of The Athletic Pittsburgh reports.

The Penguins are searching for the right combination of defensemen on the third pair with the back line shaken up by Justin Schultz's lower-body ailment. Frank Corrado was originally in consideration, but he ended up trading places with Czuczman, who hasn't appeared in an NHL game since dressing with the Panthers in the 2013-14 campaign. It's difficult to spell this guy's last name, yet ignoring him in fantasy is a no-brainer.

Penguins' Kevin Czuczman: Waived for reassignment
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Czuczman was placed on waivers Tuesday in order to reassign him to AHL Wilkes-Barre/Scranton , James Mirtle of The Athletic reports.

Czuczman would have needed a phenomenal camp in order to win a spot on the 23-man roster, so it should come as no surprise that the organization decided to move him down to the minors. The 26-year-old last appeared in an NHL contest during the 2013-14 season, when he was with the Islanders and notched a pair of helpers in 13 contests. While he does have offensive upside, the Pens' depth on the blue line all but guarantees the London, Ontario, native will spend the entire year with the Baby Pens.

Penguins' Kevin Czuczman: Agrees to two-year contract
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Czuczman put pen to paper on a one-year, two-way deal with Pittsburgh on Tuesday.

Czuczman last suited up in an NHL game during the 2013-14 season with the Islanders. In those contests, the blueliner garnered two points, 14 PIM and a minus-5 rating. Since then, the 26-year-old has spent his time primarily in the AHL, where he figures to begin the 2017-18 campaign. Undrafted coming out of Lake Superior State University, Czuczman could be in line for the occasional call-up this year, but he's unlikely to secure a regular spot on the 23-man roster, limiting his fantasy value.
