Marino scored a power-play goal on two shots in Tuesday's 7-3 win over the Flyers.
Marino gave the Penguins some extra insurance late in the third period. The 23-year-old blueliner is up to 13 points (four on the power play), 53 shots on net and a plus-3 rating through 50 contests. He had 26 points in 56 outings as a rookie last year, but the Massachusetts native has struggled to regain that form in 2020-21.
Marino (undisclosed) will be in the lineup against the Rangers on Thursday, Seth Rorabaugh of TribLive.com reports.
Marino will avoid missing any game time for the Penguins, which is a boon for a club that has consistently dealt with injuries among its forwards. It's been a tough year offensively for the 23-year-old blueliner, as he has managed a mere seven points in 35 contests.
Marino (undisclosed) left Tuesday's game versus the Rangers in the third period, and head coach Mike Sullivan did not provide an update on the blueliner's status in his postgame press conference.
It's unclear what caused Marino's early exit Tuesday. He previously missed four games with an upper-body injury in March, but he had played in the Penguins' last 10 games. The 23-year-old's status will likely be updated ahead of Thursday's rematch with the Rangers.
Marino picked up two assists, one on the power play, in Monday's 2-1 win over the Islanders.
The duo of Marino and Mike Matheson notched all the helpers on both of Pittsburgh's first-period goals, with the former getting both primary assists as he set up Anthony Angello from behind the net early in the period and then flipped a saucer pass to Jared McCann late in the frame for the eventual game-winner. Marino has had a disappointing sophomore campaign with two goals and seven points in 32 games, but he's showing signs of life on offense with a goal and three points in his last four contests.
Marino collected a goal on three shots and had two PIM in Wednesday's 5-2 win over Buffalo.
Marino stepped into a one-timer from the top of the right circle and beat Buffalo netminder Dustin Tokarski, giving the Penguins a 3-1 lead late in the second period. The goal, which stood as the game-winner, was Marino's second of the year, although both have come in his last six outings. The 23-year-old has produced five points in 29 games during his sophomore campaign.
Marino (upper body) has been activated from injured reserve ahead of Thursday's game versus the Devils.
Marino has missed Pittsburgh's last four games with an upper-body injury, but he's expected to return to a prominent role Thursday, skating on the Penguins' third pairing and second power-play unit versus New Jersey. He's picked up four points through 25 games this campaign.
Marino (upper body) will be a game-time call against the Devils on Thursday after telling reporters, "I feel pretty good. It's going to be a game-time decision - see how I feel in a little bit. But I've been feeling a lot better, for sure."
Marino -- who missed the club's last four contests due to his upper-body issue -- could be in line to join the No. 2 power-play unit once cleared to play and would likely pair up with Marcus Pettersson. It's been a tough second season for the young defenseman, as he has managed a mere four points in 25 appearances this year while averaging 22:57 of ice time.
Marino (upper body) was placed on injured reserve Tuesday.
Marino was initially considered a game-time call for Tuesday's matchup versus the Bruins. However, his placement on IR signals that the 23-year-old will miss a fourth straight game. Considering he was close to a return Tuesday, Marino has a good chance to return for Thursday's road clash against the Devils. Fantasy managers are hoping he'll ramp up his offensive play once he's healthy, as Marino has just four points through 25 games after recording 26 through 56 in his rookie season.
Marino (upper body) will be a game-time decision for Tuesday's clash with Boston, Pens Inside Scoop reports.
If cleared to play, Marino should partner back up with Marcus Pettersson while Chad Ruhwedel would once again be scratched. It's been a tough sophomore campaign for the 23-year-old Marino offensively, as he's managed just four points in 25 games this year, well off the pace of 0.46 points per game pace he set last season. Still, Marino should get plenty of opportunities to suit up on the No. 2 power-play unit, which bolsters his fantasy value.
Marino (upper body) will miss Monday's matchup with Boston but has begun skating.
Marino will be on the shelf for a third straight outing, which figures to see Chad Ruhwedel maintain his spot in the third pairing. Prior to getting hurt, Marino managed just one point in his last eight contests and should be considered a mid-range fantasy option at best given his offensive struggles this season. Given the quick turnaround, it seems unlikely Marino will be available against Boston on Tuesday.
Marino (upper body) won't play in Saturday's game versus the Sabres.
Marino will miss a second straight game as he recovers from an upper-body injury. The 23-year-old will be replaced in the lineup by veteran blueliner Chad Ruhwedel.
Marino (upper body) was absent from Friday's practice session, Matt Vensel of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports.
Marino had just one point in his last eight contests before picking up an upper-body injury. If the 23-year-old blueliner remains unavailable against the Sabres on Saturday, Chad Ruhwedel figures to hold onto his spot on the third pairing while Cody Ceci should see an uptick in ice time.
Marino is day-to-day with an upper-body injury, Matt Vensel of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports.
Marino missed Thursday's contest versus the Sabres with the injury, which has now been clarified. The 23-year-old defenseman was replaced by Chad Ruhwedel in the lineup. Marino's next chance to get back in action is Saturday versus the Sabres.
Marino (undisclosed) won't play in Thursday's game versus the Sabres.
Marino sat out practice Thursday for maintenance purposes, but it appears he's dealing with a more serious issue. The Penguins should provide an update before Saturday's rematch against the Sabres.
Marino scored a goal and went plus-3 in Sunday's 5-1 win over the Rangers.
Marino's goal at 16:13 of the first period tied the game at 1-1. It also sparked a run of three goals in 61 seconds for the Penguins, as they chased Rangers goalie Alexandar Georgiev. The 23-year-old Marino has struggled in 2020-21 -- he has only four points, 22 shots on net, 28 hits and 29 blocked shots in 24 outings. He's a solid defender, but the lack of scoring makes him a no-go for fantasy managers.
Marino (COVID-19 protocol) will play in Saturday's game against the Islanders.
Marino didn't miss a game while in the league's protocol. The 23-year-old has averaged a whopping 23:45 of ice time per contest this season, but he has just one point and eight shots on net through 10 games.
Marino (COVID-19 protocol) is a game-time decision for Saturday's game against the Islanders.
Marino was removed from the NHL's COVID-19 protocol after being placed on the list Wednesday. Perhaps the team is taking an extra cautious approach, so we won't know the final verdict on Marino until warmups commence. Penguins defensemen Kris Letang (lower body) and Mike Matheson (upper body) are also game-time decisions.
Marino (COVID-19 protocols) has been removed from the league's protocol list, Matt Vensel of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports.
It appears the Pittsburgh blue line is trending in the right direction, as it could also see Kris Letang (lower body) and Mike Matheson (upper body) back in action against the Islanders on Saturday in addition to Marino. The emergence of Pierre-Olivier Joseph could shuffle up the defensive pairings going forward, and could also result in Marino being bumped from a role on either of Pittsburgh's power-play units.
Marino (COVID-19 protocols) was back on the ice for Friday's practice session, Pens Inside Scoop reports.
It seems Pittsburgh is finally getting some good news regarding its blue line, as Marino was cleared to rejoin his teammates while Kris Letang (lower body) and Mike Matheson (upper body) practiced as well. At this point, fantasy players should expect Marino to be activated off the COVID-19 protocol list when it's updated later Friday.
Marino was placed in the NHL's COVID-19 protocol Wednesday, Stephen Whyno of the Associated Press reports.
It's unclear how long Marino will be out. He's currently the only Penguins player in protocol. For now, he'll stay away from the team, and he's at least questionable for Saturday's game against the Islanders. If Marino's unavailable, the team likely will need to call up reinforcements from the AHL.
