  • Penguins' Jake Guentzel: Leads summer league in scoring

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (8/21/17) Guentzel racked up 23 points to lead the Da Beauty League in scoring.

    While some might chalk Guentzel's success up to simply being in a summer league, the caliber of competition -- Nick Bjugstad, Dustin Byfuglien and Drew Stafford, for example -- makes the youngster's success hard to ignore. A natural center, the 22-year-old could help fill the gap down the middle of the Pens' lineup, but it seems doubtful coach Mike Sullivan will want to break up his Stanley Cup winning "Sid and the Kids" line.

    Penguins' Jake Guentzel: Stays hot in Game 3 loss

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (6/4/17) Guentzel opened the scoring in Saturday's Game 3 loss to Nashville.

    Guentzel has been a goal-scoring machine this postseason and has kicked off the Stanley Cup Final with four goals through three games. The 22-year-old has been a revelation on the top line with Sidney Crosby and is showing no signs of slowing down. Guentzel currently sits atop the postseason goal-scoring leaderboard, with no rookie having ever led the playoffs outright since the NHL took control of the Cup in 1926. What a story.

    Penguins' Jake Guentzel: Building Conn Smythe case

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (6/1/17) Guentzel scored two goals on three shots during Wednesday's Game 2 win over Nashville.

    The postseason goals leader is up to 12, and he also has 19 points through 21 games. He's currently sporting an unsustainably high 28.6 postseason shooting percentage and is just two outings removed from an eight-game goal drought, though. Guentzel's impact cannot be understated, especially his timely goal scoring, but he's also been seeing time on the fourth line and has even been discussed as a potential healthy scratch at times. His historic playoff run highlights his significant offensive potential and fantasy upside, but expecting him to post similar numbers over the course of an 82-game regular season is probably a stretch.

    Penguins' Jake Guentzel: Scores winner in Game 1

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (5/29/17) Guentzel scored the winning goal -- Pittsburgh's fourth -- in Monday's Game 1 victory over Nashville.

    Pittsburgh allowed Nashville to score three unanswered goals and recover from a 3-0 deficit, so not only was it a huge goal for Guentzel, the Penguins needed it badly. After scoring nine goals through the first 10 games of the playoffs, Guentzel went without a tally over the next eight games entering Monday. His speed, quick-release wrist shot and offensive acumen have been on display since breaking into the league in November, and he showcased all three again with Monday's goal. Guentzel's fantasy arrow is pointing straight up.

    Penguins' Jake Guentzel: Takes part in pre-game skate

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (5/29/17) Guentzel skated on a fourth line with Matt Cullen and Patric Hornqvist during pregame warmups prior to Game 1 against Nashville on Monday, Sam Werner of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports.

    Guentzel's goal-scoring well has gone dry -- he hasn't scored in eight games -- but his style of play sets up better against the Predators than the Senators. As a result, it looks like he'll remain active, at least for Game 1 of the Stanley Cup Finals. Fellow forward Carl Hagelin didn't skate in pregame warmups, which is an indication he won't play Monday.
