Jets' Neal Pionk: Records power-play helper
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Pionk picked up a power-play assist in Friday's 4-0 win over the Golden Knights.

Pionk is in the midst of a career year, with 44 points (25 on the power play), 168 shots on goal and 159 hits through 69 contests. Expect the 24-year-old defenseman to remain the quarterback of the top man-advantage unit in Winnipeg -- it's been a productive role for Pionk thus far.

Jets' Neal Pionk: Racks up eight shots
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Pionk recorded eight shots in Tuesday's 4-3 overtime loss to Washington.

Despite putting up a season-high eight shots, Pionk was unable to write his name on the scoresheet. The blueliner remains stuck in a nine-game goalless streak but has racked up six helpers (four with the man advantage) over that stretch. With Josh Morrissey (upper body) sidelined, the Jets will lean even more on Pionk down the stretch.

Jets' Neal Pionk: Draws two apples
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Pionk collected a pair of assists while adding five shots, three hits, two blocks and two PIM in Thursday's 5-1 win over Ottawa.

Pionk's breakout season continued with another boxscore-filling performance. He set up a Mark Scheifele power-play goal in the first period and had the secondary assist on Kyle Connor's second-period tally. That's now eight points (one goal, seven assists) in the last seven games for the 24-year-old. An undrafted, college free agent out of the University of Minnesota Duluth, Pionk has rather quietly put up 41 points in 62 games in his third NHL season.

Jets' Neal Pionk: Adds power-play helper
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Pionk registered a power-play assist, four hits and two PIM in Sunday's 5-2 win over the Blackhawks.

The consistent defenseman had a hand in Blake Wheeler's third-period tally. Pionk has racked up 37 points (21 on the power play), 127 shots and 136 hits in 57 outings this season. His key role in the Jets' star-loaded power play should keep the 24-year-old as a viable fantasy asset through the end of the year.

Jets' Neal Pionk: Three-point afternoon against Sens
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Pionk scored an even-strength goal and added two power-play assists in Saturday's 5-2 win over the Senators.

The defenseman even had a major hand in the Ottawa offense -- with Winnpeg up 3-1 late in the second period, Pionk fanned on a clearing attempt to inadvertently set up the Sens' Mikkel Boedker for an unassisted tally. It was Pionk's first multi-point performance in 2020, but on the season he still has a solid six goals and 36 points through 56 games.

Jets' Neal Pionk: Lights lamp with man advantage
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Pionk tallied a power-play goal on two shots and dished five hits in Wednesday's 4-3 loss to the Blue Jackets.

Pionk gave the Jets a short-lived 3-2 lead at 15:33 of the second period. The defenseman has a career-high 32 points (18 on the power play) to go with 107 shots on goal and 127 hits. He's averaged 23:19 per game this season, an increase of 2:09 over last year with the Rangers. At his current pace, the 24-year-old could challenge for the 50-point plateau.

Jets' Neal Pionk: Fills box score
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Pionk managed an assist, five hits, three shots on goal and three blocked shots in Sunday's 5-2 loss to the Blackhawks.

Pionk was all over the box score despite the poor result for the Jets. The defenseman has accumulated a goal, seven assists, 42 hits and 10 blocked shots in his last 10 games. He's up to 31 points, 104 shots and 122 hits in 49 contests overall as a physical and high-scoring defenseman.

Jets' Neal Pionk: Continues churning helpers
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Pionk produced an assist, four hits and two shots on goal in Wednesday's 4-3 shootout win over the Maple Leafs.

Pionk has eight helpers and 31 hits through his last nine games. The defenseman already has a career-high 28 points in 44 contests this season. He's added 99 hits, 95 shots on goal and a plus-5 rating. He won't fly under the radar much longer, especially with 15 of his points coming on the power play so far.

Jets' Neal Pionk: Two assists for workhorse
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Pionk had two assists and was plus-3 with seven hits in Tuesday's 7-4 win over Colorado. He also played a team-leading 22:58.

The 24-year-old has been a revelation in his first season with the Jets, putting up three goals and 25 points in 40 games. That leaves him just one point from tying the 26 points he had in 73 games last season with the Rangers. Pionk had 12 points, all assists, in 13 December games.

Jets' Neal Pionk: Trio of assists in lopsided win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Pionk finished Sunday's 7-3 win over the Flyers with three assists, including two power-play helpers.

Pionk continues to roll and now has 19 points through 33 games. His two power-play assists were Pionk's ninth and 10th power-play points of the season and came in a win that saw the 24-year-old play 22:38, more than any other skater Sunday.

Jets' Neal Pionk: Earns assist in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Pionk notched an assist in Tuesday's 5-1 victory over Dallas.

Pionk is rolling right now with three points in his last four games. With the Jets' blue line dealing with a number of injuries, the 24-year-old Pionk will continue to log big minutes, including with the No. 1 power-play unit, which will set him up well to continue contributing offensively.

Jets' Neal Pionk: Garners power-play assist
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Pionk picked up an assist with the man advantage and four hits in Wednesday's 5-1 win over the Sharks.

The defenseman found Blake Wheeler on the power play in the first period, and Wheeler then served up Patrik Laine for the goal. Pionk also had two blocked shots, two shots on goal and two PIM in the contest. The 24-year-old has 12 points (five on the power play), 55 hits and 49 shots in 25 outings this season.

Jets' Neal Pionk: Helps out on power play
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Pionk registered a power-play assist and four shots in Friday's 4-1 win over the Canucks.

Pionk set up Blake Wheeler for a shot that sailed wide but right to Jack Roslovic, who scored the goal. The defenseman has adjusted fairly well to the Jets, with two goals, eight helpers and a plus-7 rating through 17 contests. Three of Pionk's assists have come on the power play. For good measure, the 24-year-old also has 33 shots on goal and 36 hits this year.

Jets' Neal Pionk: Corrals helper
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Pionk produced an assist and two blocked shots in Saturday's 2-1 win over the Flames.

Pionk sprung Kyle Connor for a two-on-one in overtime, and Connor fed Bryan Little for the game-winning goal. Pionk has been relatively consistent this year, with eight points in 12 appearances. The 24-year-old defenseman had 26 points in 73 games with the Rangers last year, but if his hot start continues throughout 2019-20, he'll be setting a new high mark.

Jets' Neal Pionk: Comes through on power play
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Pionk picked up a power-play assist in Thursday's 3-1 loss at home to the Islanders.

Pionk also dished out three hits in the loss. Through nine games, the 24-year-old blueliner has collected six points, including a pair of power-play helpers. Poink had 13 power-play points a season ago, as a member of the Rangers.

Jets' Neal Pionk: Strong effort in shootout win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Pionk scored a goal and an assist while adding two shots, two blocked shots and a hit in Friday's 5-4 shootout win over the Devils.

After setting up Jack Roslovic for the Jets' second tally early in the third period, Pionk then potted the tying goal himself about 10 minutes later, capping the comeback from a 4-0 deficit. The 24-year-old defenseman scored six goals and 26 points last year with the Rangers in his first full NHL campaign, but his spot on the rebuilt Winnipeg blue line could provide him with the opportunities to top that performance.

Jets' Neal Pionk: Lands two-year deal with Jets
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Pionk inked a two-year, $6 million deal with Winnipeg on Sunday.

Pionk was traded to Winnipeg last month as part of the deal that sent Jacob Trouba to the Rangers. The Jets' blue line has taken a significant hit this offseason, so the 23-year-old should slot into a top-four role. Last season, he scored six goals and 26 points with 98 blocked shots and 138 hits in 73 contests.

Jets' Neal Pionk: Files for arbitration
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Pionk officially filed for arbitration Friday.

Acquired by Winnipeg in the deal that sent Jacob Trouba to New York, Pionk opted for arbitration ahead of Friday afternoon's deadline. Now, the 23-year-old blueliner, fresh off recording 26 points in 73 games with the Rangers in 2018-19, will try to come to terms on a long-term deal with Jets before the two parties meet with a neutral arbitrator.

Jets' Neal Pionk: Handed qualifying offer
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Pionk was qualified by Winnipeg on Tuesday.

Pionk was brought in by the Jets in exchange for Jacob Trouba and the 20th overall pick in the 2019 NHL Draft (Ville Heinola), which means he was always on the club's list for receiving a qualifying offer. The blueliner won't cost the team as much as Trouba would have, but he still will put a dent in its approximately $23.8 million cap space.

Jets' Neal Pionk: Packing bags for Winnipeg
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Pionk was traded to the Jets along with the 20th overall pick in the 2019 NHL Draft in exchange for Jacob Trouba.

Like Trouba, Pionk is also a restricted free agent so Winnipeg is only acquiring his rights. However, he will be much more affordable to extend. The 23-year-old has shown promise though, notching six goals and 26 points while racking up 138 hits during the 2018-19 campaign. Pionk should be a decent bottom-four defenseman for the Jets next season.
