  • Penguins' Bryan Rust: Sharpens approach with 11 points in last nine

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (2/17/18) Rust scored a goal and added two assists in Saturday's 5-3 win over the Maple Leafs.

    Rust has 30 points on the season, 11 of which have come in his last nine games. And those 30 points are a new career mark. Rust is basking in the glow of super-hot linemate Evgeni Malkin and should be rolling in nearly all formats.

    Penguins' Bryan Rust: Lights lamp twice Tuesday

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (1/31/18) Rust scored two goals on two shots while adding an assist, two blocked shots and a plus-3 rating in Tuesday's 5-2 win over the Sharks.

    He had a chance at a hat trick in the closing seconds of the game, but rang a shot off the crossbar and got to watch Evgeni Malkin bury the rebound instead to complete his own hat trick. Rust hadn't lit the lamp since Nov. 27, tallying only five assists in his last 14 games, so while Tuesday's performance did bring back memories of his eight-points-in-six-games start to the season, it's unlikely he'll repeat it any time soon.

    Penguins' Bryan Rust: Collects assist in return

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (1/24/18) Rust recorded an assist and one shot through 16:43 of ice time during Tuesday's 3-1 win over Carolina.

    Rust missed the previous 11 games with an upper-body injury, so it was encouraging to see him return to the lineup and mark the scoresheet Tuesday. However, his most frequent linemate was Tom Kuhnhackl, and he skated primarily in a depth role. Without a scoring gig, it will be difficult for Rust to be a reliable fantasy asset in most settings.

    Penguins' Bryan Rust: Activated for Tuesday's game

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (1/23/18) Rust (upper body) is no longer listed on injured reserve, per the NHL's official media site.

    This corroborates speculation that Rust will be ready to play in Tuesday's home game against the Hurricanes, despite Penguins coach Mike Sullivan's infamous habit of designating all of his injured players "game-time decisions." We suspect that the fourth-year winger will have rust to shake off -- no pun intended -- in this next contest, seeing as how he's missed the past 11 games. As a result, it's probably best to take a wait-and-see approach with him in fantasy leagues.

    Penguins' Bryan Rust: Game-time call

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (1/23/18) Rust (upper body) will be a game-time decision versus Carolina on Tuesday.

    Reading between the lines, coach Mike Sullivan prefers to announce a player as a game-time call, rather than outright saying he will play, when returning from injury. Additionally, the team sent Daniel Sprong down to the minors in order to clear room under the 23-man limit, which allows them to activate Rust off injured reserve. Finally, Ryan Reaves was the last forward off the ice for the game-day skate, per Jonathan Bombulie of TribLive.com, an indication that Reaves won't be in the lineup. All signs point to Rust suiting up against the Hurricanes on Tuesday, but don't expect official confirmation until warm-ups.
