Penguins' Drew O'Connor: Called up from AHL
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

O'Connor was elevated from the minors Tuesday.

O'Connor made his NHL debut this season, appearing in 10 games for Pittsburgh in which he registered one assist, eight shots and six hits while logging a mere 8:57 of ice time per game. The 22-year-old center shouldn't be expected to log any postseason minutes and will be available for emergency depth.

Penguins' Drew O'Connor: Reassigned to minors
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

O'Connor was demoted to AHL Wilkes-Barre/Scranton on Monday.

The addition of Jeff Carter will likely spell the end of NHL games for O'Connor this season, as he moves even further down the center depth chart. Even prior to the Pens' deadline acquisition, O'Connor has been unable to break into the lineup, making him a non-factor in fantasy contests.

Penguins' Drew O'Connor: Down to taxi squad
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

O'Connor was designated for the taxi squad Sunday.

O'Connor has played 10 games with the Penguins this season, recording an assist and eight shots on goal. The 22-year-old will continue to practice and travel with the team while on the taxi squad.

Penguins' Drew O'Connor: On active roster
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

O'Connor was elevated to the active roster Tuesday.

O'Connor is unlikely to break into the lineup for Tuesday's matchup with the Rangers and figures to primarily serve as a healthy scratch. Barring any additional injuries among the club's forwards, O'Connor will likely log the bulk of his ice time in the minors.

Penguins' Drew O'Connor: Promoted to taxi squad
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

O'Connor was recalled to the taxi squad Monday.

O'Connor has played in just one of the Pens' last eight contests, instead seeing the bulk of his minutes in the minors. While there figures to be an open lineup spot against the Rangers on Tuesday following Brandon Tanev's (upper body) injury, Radim Zohorna was also added to the taxi squad and could be the preferred option.

Penguins' Drew O'Connor: Shipped down to minors
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

O'Connor was reassigned to AHL Wilkes-Barre/Scranton on Wednesday.

O'Connor played in just one game for Pittsburgh in March, in which he saw a meager 6:24 of ice time. With the Baby Pens, O'Connor should see significantly more minutes, which could set him up well to make the 23-man roster on a full-time basis next year.

Penguins' Drew O'Connor: Dropped to taxi squad
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

O'Connor was demoted to the taxi squad Sunday, per CapFriendly.

O'Connor has an assist and a minus-2 rating in 10 NHL games this season. As Pittsburgh slowly gets healthier, the 22-year-old won't be needed much on the active roster.

March 27, 2021 05:12 PM
Penguins' Drew O'Connor: Up to active roster
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

O'Connor was promoted to the active roster Saturday.

A roster spot opened up after Kasperi Kapanen (lower body) was placed on injured reserve. The Penguins have five of their regular forwards on the shelf, so O'Connor could be an option in the short term. The 22-year-old has just one point through nine NHL games this year.

Penguins' Drew O'Connor: Added to taxi squad
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

O'Connor was recalled to the taxi squad Thursday.

O'Connor last played for the Penguins against the Capitals on Feb. 25 and figures to primarily serve as an emergency depth option ahead of Thursday's matchup with Buffalo. If Kasperi Kapanen (lower body) can't play, it could come down to O'Connor or Radim Zohorna to jump into the lineup.

Penguins' Drew O'Connor: Headed to AHL
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

O'Connor was demoted to AHL Wilkes-Barre/Scranton on Friday.

O'Connor has served as a healthy scratch for the Pens' last four contests and hasn't suited up since Feb. 25 versus Washington. With the 22-year-old center needing minutes to further his development, the reassignment to the minors should be a good move for O'Connor. In the meantime, Anthony Angello, Sam Lafferty and Colton Sceviour should all be in the mix for bottom-six minutes.

March 3, 2021 05:16 PM
Penguins' Drew O'Connor: Shifts to taxi squad
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

O'Connor was reassigned to Pittsburgh's taxi squad Wednesday, Rob Rossi of The Athletic reports.

O'Connor will likely continue to shuffle between levels throughout the season. The 22-year-old rookie has tallied one helper in nine NHL appearances this year.

March 2, 2021 05:44 PM
Penguins' Drew O'Connor: Rises from taxi squad
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

O'Connor was promoted to the active roster Tuesday.

O'Connor is now eligible to play in Tuesday's home contest versus the Flyers. The 22-year-old has played his first nine NHL games this season, registering an assist and seven shots on net, so he shouldn't be on fantasy radars.

February 27, 2021 02:16 PM
Penguins' Drew O'Connor: Returned to taxi squad
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Per Seth Rorabaugh of TribLive.com, O'Connor is no longer listed on the Penguins' active roster, indicating he's been reassigned to the taxi squad.

O'Connor has drawn into nine games with the Penguins this season, picking up one assist while posting a minus-2 rating over that span. Jared McCann (lower body) was activated from injured reserve in a corresponding move Saturday, so O'Connor could be in for an extended stay on the taxi squad.

Penguins' Drew O'Connor: Receives promotion
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

O'Connor was promoted from the taxi squad ahead of Thursday's game versus the Capitals, Seth Rorabaugh of TribLive.com reports.

O'Connor is expected to skate on the fourth line during Thursday's game. The 22-year-old has averaged just 9:07 of ice time, so fantasy managers shouldn't be concerned with his addition to the lineup.

Penguins' Drew O'Connor: Bumps to taxi squad
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

O'Connor was designated for the taxi squad Wednesday, per CapFriendly.

O'Connor has geared up in eight of the last 11 games for Pittsburgh. The 22-year-old recorded an assist and a minus-1 rating in that stretch. He'll continue practicing and traveling with the team while on the taxi squad.

February 23, 2021 09:36 PM
Penguins' Drew O'Connor: Up on active roster
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

O'Connor was promoted to the active roster Tuesday, per CapFriendly.

O'Connor ended up serving as a healthy scratch for Tuesday's game versus the Capitals, while Colton Sceviour got into the lineup.

February 23, 2021 02:40 AM
Penguins' Drew O'Connor: Sent to taxi squad
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

O'Connor was reassigned to the taxi squad Monday, per CBS Sports.

O'Connor has just one assist through eight appearances this season. The 22-year-old has seen his ice time drop to just 6:50 in Saturday's 3-2 win over the Islanders. The Penguins may want to get Colton Sceviour some playing time in the bottom six.

February 6, 2021 12:36 PM
Penguins' Drew O'Connor: Lifted from taxi squad
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

O'Connor was activated from the taxi squad Saturday, Wes Crosby of NHL.com reports.

O'Connor has played in each of the last four games for the Penguins, recording an assist, four shots on net and three hits. The 22-year-old skated on the fourth line but also logged power-play time, and he'll likely handle a similar structure in Saturday's game against the Islanders.

February 2, 2021 12:16 PM
Penguins' Drew O'Connor: Lands on taxi squad
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

O'Connor was designated for the taxi squad Tuesday.

It's a procedural cap move for Pittsburgh with the team off until Saturday's matchup with the Islanders. O'Connor has played in each of the Pens' previous four games in which he registered one assist, four shots and three hits while averaging 11:14 of ice time, including 2:33 with the man advantage. With Evan Rodrigues (lower body) out until at least mid-February, O'Connor figures to remain a fixture on Pittsburgh's fourth line.

Penguins' Drew O'Connor: Set for debut Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

O'Connor was promoted from the taxi squad Tuesday and is expected to make his NHL debut against Boston.

O'Connor is playing in his first professional season after deciding to make the jump from the collegiate ranks in the offseason. The undrafted winger records 38 goals and 21 helpers in his two seasons at Dartmouth. Similar to John Marino last year, the 22-year-old O'Connor made enough of an impression during training camp to convince the organization to keep him on hand, rather than sending him down to the minors. With Evan Rodrigues (lower body) facing an extended absence, it will likely come down to O'Connor or Sam Lafferty for the final spot in the lineup on a game-to-game basis.
