Penguins' Marcus Pettersson: Returns on third pairing
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Pettersson (upper body) was minus-2 with two shots and one hit in Tuesday's 3-1 loss to Washington.

Pettersson, who had missed the previous nine games with his injury, logged just over 14 minutes of ice time on Pittsburgh's third defensive pairing in his return and saw substantial duty on the penalty kill. The 24-year-old provided 22 points in 69 games last season and has one goal through five contests in 2020-21.

Penguins' Marcus Pettersson: Good to go
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Pettersson (upper body) will play in Tuesday's game versus the Capitals.

Pettersson is back in action after spending nine games on injured reserve. The 24-year-old collected 22 points over 69 games last season. He's slated to skate on the third pairing with Cody Ceci.

Penguins' Marcus Pettersson: Taken off injured reserve
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Pettersson (upper body) has been activated off injured reserve Tuesday ahead of a matchup with Washington, Seth Rorabaugh of reports.

Officially a game-time decision, it seems unlikely the Penguins would remove Pettersson from injured reserve only to have him sit. In the past, the youngster has paired up with John Marino but could find himself instead playing with Cody Ceci on Tuesday in order to limit his minutes.

Penguins' Marcus Pettersson: Game-time call Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Pettersson (upper body) was labeled a game-time decision against the Capitals on Tuesday, Tom Gulitti of reports.

Pettersson completed the team's full practice session Monday without suffering any apparent setbacks. If the 24-year-old blueliner does suit up, it would be his first game since Jan. 19 versus Washington, a stretch of nine games on the shelf. Chad Ruhwedel or Cody Ceci figures to be the odd-man-out in favor of Pettersson, who needs to be activated off injured reserve in order to play.

Penguins' Marcus Pettersson: Full practice participant
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Pettersson (upper body) completed Monday's practice session, Seth Rorabaugh of reports.

Pettersson could be approaching a return to the lineup following his nine-game stint on injured reserve due to his upper-body issue. Once cleared to play, Pettersson could see his minutes reduced compared to his pre-injury levels (17:19 per game) thanks to the emergence of Pierre-Olivier Joseph.

Penguins' Marcus Pettersson: Remains unavailable
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Pettersson (upper body) won't play in Sunday's game versus the Capitals, Seth Rorabaugh of reports.

Petterson started skating with a non-contact jersey Saturday. However, the Penguins won't rush him back, so he'll remain on injured reserve for now. The 24-year-old's next chance to play is Tuesday's rematch against the Caps.

Penguins' Marcus Pettersson: Sheds non-contact sweater
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Pettersson (upper body) wore a normal jersey during Saturday's practice, indicating he's been cleared to start taking contact, Mike DeFabo of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports.

Pettersson is clearly nearing a return to action, and it wouldn't be surprising to see him activated off injured reserve prior to Sunday afternoon's matchup with Washington. The 24-year-old blueliner picked up one goal through four games to start the season before suffering an upper-body injury.

Penguins' Marcus Pettersson: Wearing non-contact jersey
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Pettersson (upper body) practiced with the Penguins on Wednesday sporting a non-contact sweater.

Pettersson has already missed seven games due to his upper-body issue and seems likely to remain unavailable for Thursday's matchup with the Islanders. Once the 24-year-old blueliner can return to being a full practice participant, it should clear the way for him to rejoin the lineup and be activated off injured reserve.

Penguins' Marcus Pettersson: Skating with taxi squad group
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Pettersson (upper body) skated with the Penguins' taxi squad members Monday. Coach Mike Sullivan told reporters, "Pettersson skated this morning with the taxi squad. He's getting closer."

Pettersson has already missed the team's previous seven contests but appears to be progressing in the right direction, yet considering he isn't practicing with the team, the blueliner likely won't be ready in time to suit up versus the Islanders on Thursday. Once cleared to play, the 24-year-old Swede should retake his spot in Pittsburgh's top four, though the emergence of Pierre-Olivier Joseph could see him pushed further down the lineup.

Penguins' Marcus Pettersson: Shifts to IR
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Pettersson (upper body) was placed on injured reserve Thursday, CapFriendly reports.

Petterson's placement on IR is retroactive to Jan. 19, so he's eligible to return to the lineup at anytime. There's no indication that he's returned to skating yet, so it's tough to pinpoint his timeline to return. The rest of the Penguins' blue line is in rough shape as well, as Brian Dumoulin (lower body), Mike Matheson (upper body) and Kris Letang (undisclosed) are all battling injuries.

Penguins' Marcus Pettersson: Considered week-to-week
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Pettersson (upper body) was labeled week-to-week by coach Mike Sullivan, Pens Inside Scoop reports.

Given Pettersson's recovery timeline, it seems unlikely he will travel with the team for its upcoming four-game road trip, which would see him out of the lineup for at least the next six contests. If that's the case, Pettersson will likely be designated for injured reserve in the coming days. With Mike Matheson (upper body) and Juuso Riikola (upper body) both facing extended absences, Chad Ruhwedel and Cody Ceci should be expected to take on bigger roles while more minutes head toward stalwarts Kris Letang and Brian Dumoulin.

Penguins' Marcus Pettersson: Dealing with upper-body injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Pettersson is dealing with an upper-body injury, according to head coach Mike Sullivan.

Pettersson left Tuesday's game versus the Capitals after a hard hit from T.J. Oshie and the former did not return. It's unknown if Pettersson will be healthy in time for Friday's game versus the Rangers.

Penguins' Marcus Pettersson: Exits after hard hit
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Pettersson (undisclosed) left Tuesday's game versus the Capitals after a hard hit from T.J. Oshie.

Pettersson was injured in the second period. Oshie was initially given a major penalty, but a review allowed referees to downgrade it to a minor. Pettersson did not return for the start of the third period, and neither did Juuso Riikola, leaving the Penguins with only four defensemen to close out the game. The 24-year-old Pettersson fills a second-pairing role for the Penguins -- if he can't return by Friday's game versus Rangers, Cody Ceci may return to the lineup in his place.

Penguins' Marcus Pettersson: Tallies key snipe
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Pettersson scored a goal on his only shot and handed out three hits Sunday in a 4-3 shootout win over Washington.

Pettersson tied the game at 3-3 with just over seven minutes left in the second period, picking the top corner with a wrister from the high slot. It was his first goal of the season and just his sixth in 176 career NHL games. The 24-year-old had two goals and 22 points in 69 games last season.

Penguins' Marcus Pettersson: Notches pair of assists
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Pettersson provided two helpers and three blocked shots in Friday's 3-2 loss to the Penguins.

Pettersson set up both of Jason Zucker's tallies in the game. The Swedish blueliner has had a good run of offense with six assists in his last eight outings. The 23-year-old now has 21 points, 95 hits, 76 blocked shots and a plus-10 rating through 63 contests.

February 17, 2020 10:32 AM
Penguins' Marcus Pettersson: Earns helper in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Pettersson registered one assist, one shot and a plus-2 rating versus Detroit on Sunday.

With assists in back-to-back games, Pettersson has broken through a 14-game pointless streak. The blueliner remains bogged down in a 55-game goal drought dating back to Oct. 5 versus Columbus. With an increased role on the power play in his last three appearances (1:18 of ice time per game), the Swede could find the back of the net before long.

Penguins' Marcus Pettersson: Lands five-year extension
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Petterson signed a five-year contract extension with the Penguins on Tuesday. The extension will go into effect in 2020-21 and carries an annual average value of $4.03 million.

The 23-year-old has emerged as a key piece for Pittsburgh on the back end since coming over in a trade from the Ducks in December 2018. Over his 107 career games with the Penguins, Petterson has tallied three goals an 31 assists while achieving a plus-17, the third-best plus/minus mark among the team's blueliners since he was acquired. He'll now remain in the fold through the 2024-25 campaign, his age-28 season.

Penguins' Marcus Pettersson: Missing in action
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Pettersson managed one blocked shot against the Golden Knights on Tuesday despite logging 21:14 of ice time.

Outside of his block, Pettersson didn't add any fantasy relevance in Tuesday's tilt, even registering a zero plus/minus rating. In his last five outings, the defender has recorded a mere three shots, which isn't going to help him break out of his 41-game goalless streak. Still, the Swede needs just five more points to top the 20 mark for the first time in his career, though fantasy owners may not want to bank on those points coming in the form of goals.

Penguins' Marcus Pettersson: Manages assist
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Pettersson produced an assist, four blocked shots and two hits in Tuesday's 4-1 win over the Flames.

Pettersson served up John Marino, who struck for the game-tying goal in the second period. Pettersson has offered sporadic offense this year, with 11 points in 34 games. The Swede has also managed 57 hits, 35 blocks and 36 shots on goal, but his usage on the third pairing limits his offensive production.

Penguins' Marcus Pettersson: Snags assist in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Pettersson notched an assist in Saturday's 5-3 victory over Detroit.

Pettersson may be stuck in a 28-game goal drought, but has chipped in three helpers in his last six outings. The Swede is averaging 1:26 of ice time with the man advantage, which should provide him some opportunities to put one into the back of the net, though he is generally playing with the No. 2 unit which sees significantly reduce minutes compared to the top group.
