  • Penguins' Jake Guentzel: Scores twice against Sens

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (2/13/18) Guentzel scored two goals -- one on the power play -- during Tuesday's 6-3 win over Ottawa.

    The second-year winger hasn't scored at the same pace as last season, as he now has just 18 goals and 30 points through 58 games. However, the Penguins are trending in the right direction, and Guentzel's been promoted to the No. 1 power-play unit with Patric Hornqvist (lower body) out of action. It shouldn't surprise if Guentzel finished the campaign strong.

    Penguins' Jake Guentzel: Snags goal Tuesday

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (1/24/18) Guentzel earned his 15th goal of the season against the Hurricanes on Tuesday.

    Guentzel was able to find some open ice right in front of netminder Cam Ward and linemate Phil Kessel put the puck right on the youngster's tape for a one-time goal. After a record-setting postseason run, many expected the 22-year-old Guentzel to continue that torrid pace into the 2017-18 campaign. While he has certainly cooled a bit, the winger has still racked up 25 points in 50 outings and seems to be relishing playing alongside Kessel.

    Penguins' Jake Guentzel: Records assist in loss to Avs

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (12/11/17) Guentzel recorded an assist through 18:37 of ice time during Monday's 2-1 loss to Colorado.

    The helper snapped a two-game point drought, but the offensive dry spells have been few and far between again this year for the sophomore. Guentzel has collected 12 goals and 21 points through 32 games for the campaign, and he's locked into a top-six role with power-play time. It's definitely worth noting that his value and upside take a hit when Pittsburgh is fully healthy because Guentzel is usually demoted to the No. 2 power-play unit.

    Penguins' Jake Guentzel: Scores both goals in loss

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (11/23/17) Guentzel scored both his team's goals in a 5-2 loss to Vancouver on Wednesday.

    The good news is that Guentzel seems to have gotten things on track after a mediocre start to the season. He's now scored in three of his past five games and is up to eight goals on the year.

    Penguins' Jake Guentzel: Suffering through 13-game drought

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (11/11/17) Guentzel failed to mark the scoresheet during Friday's 4-1 loss to Washington, and he's now gone 13 games without a multi-point outing.

    It's probably too early to dub this a sophomore slump from Guentzel, and his four goals, nine points and 40 shots through 18 games are respectable totals. However, after his impressive debut last year, fantasy owners are hoping to see an uptick in production moving forward. It's not out of the question to consider buying low on Guentzel, especially since he appears locked into a top-six role flanking either Sidney Crosby or Evgeni Malkin.
