by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Marino (face) will return to the lineup for Tuesday's game against the Senators.

Marino has missed Pittsburgh's last 11 games while recovering from the facial surgery he underwent Feb. 10, but he's been a full participant at practice since Thursday, so he shouldn't have any limitations against the Senators.

by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Marino (face) will be a game-time call for Tuesday's matchup with Ottawa.

Penguins' John Marino: Progressing in recovery
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Marino (face) took part in Thursday's practice session in a regular jersey but is still working his way back to 100 percent. When asked about the blueliner's timeline, coach Mike Sullivan told reporters, "We have a sense. I'm just not going to share it. But obviously, the fact that they're participating in full contact, that's really encouraging, " Matt Vensel of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports.

Before he can get back into the lineup, Marino will need to be activated off injured reserve. Based on Sullivan's comments, it seems unlikely Marino will suit up for Friday's clash with Anaheim, though the fact that he traveled with the team is a good indication that he could be back sooner rather than later.

by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

While Marino is sidelined, Juuso Riikola and a possible call-up from AHL Wilkes-Barre/Scranton are the likely candidates to replace him in the lineup.

Penguins' John Marino: Will undergo surgery Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Marino (face) will have surgery Monday to repair facial fractures suffered against the Lightning on Thursday, Dave Molinari of reports.

The team didn't provide a specific recovery timeline, but fantasy owners can likely expect Marino to miss at least a week or two. With the Massachusetts native unavailable, Juuso Riikola figures to get a look on the blue line while Zach Trotman and Kevin Czuczman should be the leading candidates for a promotion from AHL Wilkes-Barre/Scranton.

by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Penguins' John Marino: Garners helper Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Marino snagged an assist against the Capitals on Sunday.

Despite logging 2:52 of ice time with the man advantage Sunday, Marino's marker came at even strength and ended a five-game pointless streak. The youngster is still looking for his first goal since Dec. 17 versus Calgary, a run of 18 outings without finding the back of the net. Once Brian Dumoulin (ankle) returns to the lineup, Marino's defensive partner could change which might help him produce more in the offensive end.

Penguins' John Marino: Earns assist in victory
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Marino garnered an assist against the Wild on Tuesday.

Marino is goalless in his last 12 outings but has racked up eight helpers over that stretch. Among his fellow rookies, Marino is sitting ninth in the league in points (23) and third for defensemen behind Cale Makar and Quinn Hughes. Even once Justin Schultz (lower body) and Brian Dumoulin (ankle) return to the lineup, Marino should continue to log consistent minutes on the Pens' blue line.

Penguins' John Marino: Provides pair of assists
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Marino recorded two assists and two shots on goal in Friday's 4-3 overtime win over the Avalanche.

The 22-year-old blueliner is up to 22 points, 55 shots, 60 blocked shots and 58 hits through 42 contests. He's earned a top-four role through strong play at both ends of the ice, and fantasy attention should soon follow.

Penguins' John Marino: Helpers in consecutive games
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Marino picked up a power-play assist and two PIM in Tuesday's 4-3 win over the Golden Knights.

Marino continues to do good work -- his assist Tuesday got him to the 20-point mark in 41 appearances. A 40-point pace for a full season is nothing to sneeze at from a rookie blueliner. Marino has added 53 shots on goal, 57 hits, 59 blocked shots and a plus-14 rating.

Penguins' John Marino: Registers assist in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Marino earned an assist in Sunday's 4-1 defeat to the Panthers.

While Marino remains bogged down in an eight-game goal drought, he has notched four helpers over that stretch while averaging 20:49 of ice time. The rookie defenseman currently finds himself paired up with Marcus Pettersson in the Pens' second pairing with Brian Dumoulin (ankle) and Justin Schultz (lower body) sidelined. While Marino's partner might change once (if) the blue line gets healthy, he is a lock for the lineup after impressing team brass throughout the first half of the season. With 19 points in 40 contests, the 22-year-old could certainly push for the 40-point mark this year, making him a top-end fantasy option.

by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Marino continues to log big minutes for the club, as he also played 1:57 on the penalty kill for a total of 23:44 of ice time. The youngster has been playing with Kris Letang on Pittsburgh's top line, but he will likely move back a pairing once Brian Dumoulin (ankle) is cleared to play.
