Penguins' Jake Guentzel: Stays hot with two-point outing
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Guentzel notched a goal and an assist in Friday's 5-2 loss to the Blue Jackets.

Guentzel also led the Penguins with seven shots on goal while factoring in on both of their scores in the loss. He's cirremt;u on a seven-game point streak, with seven goals and six helpers over that span. The 25-year-old has 15 goals and 27 points in 26 games this season. It seems Guentzel has only gotten better since joining Evgeni Malkin's line while Sidney Crosby is recovering from surgery for a core muscle injury.

Penguins' Jake Guentzel: Explodes for four points
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Guentzel scored a pair of goals and collected two assists, finishing Wednesday night's 8-6 win over Vancouver with four points.

Guentzel tallied a pair of points with the man advantage Wednesday and two more points at even strength, including the primary helper on Kris Letang's game-winning goal. With 11 points in his last six games, Guentzel will be looking to make it seven straight contests with at least a point when the Penguins battle the Blue Jackets in Columbus on Friday.

Penguins' Jake Guentzel: Stays hot versus Flames
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Guentzel scored the overtime winner in Monday's 3-2 win versus Calgary.

Guentzel's game-winning goal came at the 4:02 mark of the extra frame and was his third such goal this season. He's been on fire as of late, now with seven points -- three coming with the man advantage -- in his last five contests. For the season, Guentzel has 21 points in 24 games.

Penguins' Jake Guentzel: Breakaway goal serves as winner
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Guentzel scored a goal on four shots Friday in a 4-1 win over the Devils.

Guentzel beat MacKenzie Blackwood with a beautiful breakaway move, putting the Penguins ahead 2-1 with 7:33 left in the second period. It was Guentzel's third goal in the last four games, and he's totaled six points over that stretch. The 25-year-old has had to take on a greater scoring burden due to Sidney Crosby's injury and he's been up to the task so far.

Penguins' Jake Guentzel: Two-point night in OT loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Guentzel scored a goal and an assist, both on the power play, in Tuesday's 5-4 overtime loss to the Islanders.

He also chipped in four shots, three hits, and two blocked shots while getting stuck with a minus-1 rating. Guentzel is demonstrating his 76-point campaign last season wasn't just a product of skating with Sidney Crosby (groin), and the 25-year-old now has 10 goals and 18 points in 21 games.

Penguins' Jake Guentzel: Goal sparks comeback
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Guentzel scored his eighth goal of the year and had four shots in Saturday's 3-2 shootout win over the Blackhawks.

Guentzel got the Penguins on the board with a one-timer late in the second period, igniting Pittsburgh's rally from a 2-0 deficit. The 25-year-old had come into the night without a point and with a minus-7 rating over his previous three games. That mini-skid notwithstanding, Guentzel is off to another productive start with 14 points in 17 games.

Penguins' Jake Guentzel: Scores goal in rout
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Guentzel scored a goal on four shots in Tuesday's 7-1 dismantling of the Flyers.

It was a team-leading seventh goal of the season for Guentzel, who banged home a rebound in front of the Flyers' net. The winger has registered a point in all but two of his 13 appearances this season and trails only captain Sidney Crosby (17) with 13 points on the year. Given his current pace, the 24-year-old Guentzel could put together a second straight 40-goal campaign and once again reach the 75-point threshold.

Penguins' Jake Guentzel: Nets sixth goal in losing cause
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Guentzel scored a goal on five shots and had two PIM in Wednesday's 3-2 loss to Tampa Bay.

Guentzel received a touch-pass in the slot from Sidney Crosby and had nothing but net to shoot at, giving the Penguins a 2-1 lead in the final minute of the second period. The 25-year-old is following up last season's 40-goal campaign with another productive start in 2019-20, amassing six goals and 11 points through 11 games. He's only been held without a point twice all year.

Penguins' Jake Guentzel: Two assists in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Guentzel picked up two assists in Tuesday's 4-2 loss to the Panthers.

The 25-year-old showed off his soft passing touch in this one, setting up Teddy Blueger and Patric Hornqvist for relative tap-ins. Guentzel has only failed to hit the scoresheet in two of 10 games to begin the season, scoring five goals and 10 points in total.

Penguins' Jake Guentzel: Shut down by Golden Knights
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Guentzel was held without a point in Saturday's 3-0 loss to Vegas.

It was a night to forget for most Penguins players, Guentzel included, as the hosts were outmatched and outplayed for the better part of 60 minutes. Guentzel did register a shot on goal, along with a block and hit, but he finished his night with an unsavory minus-2 rating. He also saw his point streak snapped at seven games.

Penguins' Jake Guentzel: Goals in three straight
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Guentzel scored two goals, including one on the power play, on three shots and was a plus-2 in Sunday's 7-2 win over Winnipeg.

That's four goals in the last three games for Guentzel, who is also riding a five-game point streak after a scoreless opening night. The 25-year-old broke out with his first 40-goal campaign in 2018-19 and should once again settle somewhere in the 30-40 range, even if his 17.6 shooting percentage from a year ago levels off.

Penguins' Jake Guentzel: Leads team in shots
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Guentzel scored a power-play goal on a team-high seven shots in Saturday's 7-4 win over the Wild.

Guentzel's trigger-happy tendencies were rewarded in the third period, stretching the Penguins' lead to 6-2 at the time. It would be an important insurance goal after the Wild made a late push. Guentzel has recorded two goals and two helpers on a four-game point streak, while pumping 17 shots and dishing six hits in that span.

Penguins' Jake Guentzel: Finds assist column
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Guentzel recorded an even-strength helper in a 4-1 loss to Winnipeg on Tuesday.

Guentzel picked up the primary assist on Sidney Crosby's goal early in the first period, but the Penguins would be blanked from that point on. The 25-year-old winger logged more minutes than any Pittsburgh forward in Tuesday's loss, finishing the night with 22:51 of ice time.

Penguins' Jake Guentzel: Dealing with rib issue
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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 | RotoWire

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 | RotoWire

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 | RotoWire

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 | RotoWire

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.

Penguins' Jake Guentzel: Stays hot with two more points
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Guentzel scored his 36th goal of the season and also had an assist in Thursday's 5-0 win over Buffalo.

With points in six of his last seven and goals in three straight, it's hard to find a player hotter that Guentzel at the moment. The 24-year-old has 68 points in 2018-19, 20 more than he had a season ago, and a Saturday date with St. Louis is on tap. Guentzel scored in the teams' only other meeting this season, so there's little reason to doubt the young forward's ability to stay hot over the weekend.

Penguins' Jake Guentzel: Continues racking up goals
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Guentzel tallied his 35th goal of the season against Washington on Tuesday.

Guentzel has been red hot of late, as he has six goals and four helpers in his previous six contests. The winger is having a career year with 66 points in 70 games and could make a run at the 80 mark if he keeps up his torrid pace, with the Sabres next up Thursday.
