  • Penguins' Jake Guentzel: Dealing with rib issue

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (4/18/19) Guentzel was bothered by a rib injury during the playoffs, Sam Kasan of Pens Inside Scoop reports.

    Considering Guentzel was able to power through the injury, there shouldn't be any concern among fantasy owners that this will carry into 2019-20. However, it does seem to explain why the youngster went ice cold versus the Islanders, notching just one goal after his phenomenal 40-goal campaign. Despite the postseason slump, Guentzel is almost certainly a lock to continue playing with Sidney Crosby next year on Pittsburgh's top line and could join the No. 1 power-play unit as well.

    Penguins' Jake Guentzel: Tallies lone score

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (4/16/19) Guentzel scored the Penguins' only goal in a 3-1 loss to the Islanders in Game 4 on Tuesday. The Islanders swept the Penguins in the first-round series.

    The 24-year-old found an open spot in the offensive zone, and Sidney Crosby set Guentzel up with a beautiful feed to set up his goal in the first minute of the game. At the time, it seemed like that was going to set the tone for the Penguins avoiding elimination Tuesday. Instead, the Islanders tied the game within the next two minutes, and the Penguins didn't score again. Despite his goal Tuesday, Guentzel came up small in the series, as that was his only point. He was hardly alone, though, as the Penguins only scored six goals in the sweep.

    Penguins' Jake Guentzel: Taps keg for 40th time this year

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (4/7/19) Guentzel scored a goal Saturday in a 4-3 overtime loss to the Rangers.

    Guentzel scored his 40th goal of the season in the third period Saturday to force the game into overtime. That solidified the Pens' position in the standings and kept them from slipping into the wild card spot. Guentzel has seen huge growth in his game in his third season. He had 16 goals in 40 games in 2016-17 and 22 goals in 82 games last season. Sidney Crosby finally has an elite winger to play beside.

    Penguins' Jake Guentzel: Best sniper on team of studs

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (4/4/19) Guentzel scored his 39th goal of the season Thursday in a 4-1 win over Detroit.

    His dream season continues. Guentzel has 74 points in 81 games and those 39 goals put him 12th in the NHL and tops on the Penguins. Yes, you read that right -- Guentzel is ahead of Sidney Crosby (34), Evgeni Malkin (21) and Phil Kessel (27) on the goal list. Wow.

    Penguins' Jake Guentzel: Creeping closer to 40 goals

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (3/20/19) Guentzel scored a goal and tallied an assist in Tuesday's 3-2 shootout loss to the Hurricanes.

    Guentzel is up to 37 goals on the year, just three shy of 40, but with eight games remaining the Pens' forward should wind up achieving the mark, which would be his first time doing so. In addition to his goal, Guentzel drew a secondary assist on Kris Letang's go-ahead goal late in the third period and now has 70 points in 2018-19.
