  • Penguins' Jake Guentzel: Continues production against Lightning

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (10/13/17) Guentzel netted his second goal of the season and added an assist in Thursday's loss to Tampa Bay.

    Life in a top offense appears to be pretty good. The 25-year-old is operating at a point-per-game pace through five contests and has been credited with 10 shots on goal over his last two outings. After exploding for 13 goals in the 2017 postseason, it's clear Guentzel has a knack for putting the puck in the net. Now that he'll be playing his first full NHL season, Guentzel makes for a hot fantasy commodity in a variety of formats.

    Penguins' Jake Guentzel: Notches five points against Wings

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (9/21/17) Guentzel continued his torrid point-gathering pace with a goal and four helpers in Wednesday's preseason game against Detroit.

    Guentzel burst onto the scene last year with 33 points in 40 regular-season outings, then another 13 goals and eight assists in the playoffs. The winger has yet to let off the gas, as he led a competitive summer league in his native Minnesota in scoring, and he seems to be ready to hit the ground running for the 2017-18 campaign. The Pens are considering making the 22-year-old their third-line center, but one has to imagine captain Sidney Crosby would veto that decision pretty quickly, considering how well the two seem to have gelled on the ice.

    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.
