  • Penguins' Bryan Rust: Pots first goal in blowout win

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (10/26/18) Rust had a goal and an assist in Thursday's 9-1 win over Calgary.

    Rust's first goal of the season made it 3-0 in the final minute of the first period, and he logged a helper on Phil Kessel's second-period tally to make it 6-0. Unfortunately for Rust's owners, he couldn't keep the pattern going and was nowhere to be found on Pittsburgh's ninth goal in the third. Rust will likely pick up the scoring pace after potting 15 goals in 2016-17 and 13 goals last season, but the Penguins will be fine even if he doesn't.

    Penguins' Bryan Rust: Registers helper versus Toronto

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (10/19/18) Rust picked up his first point of the season in Thursday's 3-0 win over the Maple Leafs.

    Rust helped get the puck out of the defensive zone to break Kris Letang for an empty-net goal that sealed the Pens victory. For now, the winger seems to have been promoted to the top line alongside Sidney Crosby, which should bolster his chances of compiling additional points as long as he remains in that role.

    Penguins' Bryan Rust: Still without a point

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (10/16/18) Rust failed to register a point in Tuesday's 3-2 overtime loss to Vancouver.

    It's early so being without a point is still not a huge cause for concern. Nonetheless, Rust's owners had to have hoped for a better start than the one the 26-year-old forward has delivered them. Pointless in five games and playing to a minus-4 rating, Rust has been a no show early on and even saw a season-low 13:30 of ice time Tuesday night. He'll look to open his account Thursday when the Penguins visit Toronto.

    Penguins' Bryan Rust: Signs long-term deal

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (6/26/18) Rust agreed to terms on a four-year, $14 million contract with Pittsburgh on Tuesday.

    Given Rust's ability to play pretty much anywhere in the Penguins' lineup -- from the top line with Sidney Crosby to a third-line grinder role -- there was little doubt the team was going to try to lock him into a long-term deal. The 25-year-old set new career highs in assists (25) and points (38) last year and will look to continue to build on those numbers heading into 2018-19. The Michigan native offers improved fantasy value when assigned to play with Pittsburgh's stars, but can still offer quality depth scoring even when anchoring the third line.

    Penguins' Bryan Rust: Blanked in second round

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (5/10/18) Rust failed to register a single point during Pittsburgh's second-round exit courtesy of Washington.

    Including the playoffs, Rust had a disappointing end to the year, as he registered just three points (all goals) in his final 18 contests. Despite the late-season slump, the winger still managed to set career highs in assists (25), points (38) and shots on goal (123). Looking ahead to 2018-19, the Michigan native is right on the cusp of being a full-time, top-six player, but he could still periodically find himself on the third or fourth lines, based on injuries and who else might be playing well. Rust's consistent effort and work ethic will keep him in the lineup and playing with Pittsburgh's stars.
