  • Bruins' Danton Heinen: Collects helper in win

    Heinen notched an assist in Sunday's 3-1 win over the Blue Jackets.

    Heinen continues to fit well in a middle-six role with two goals and four assists over his last eight games. The 28-year-old didn't start his second tenure with the Bruins all that well, but he's rebounded into an effective secondary scorer. He's at eight points, 26 shots on net, 14 blocked shots and a plus-6 rating through 16 appearances this season. Without a role on the power play, it's unlikely his offense takes a significant step forward.

  • Bruins' Danton Heinen: Pots game-winner Thursday

    Heinen scored the game-winning goal in Thursday's 3-0 victory over the Sharks.

    The 28-year-old opened the scoring early in the second period after some impressive work by rookie Matthew Poitras, who blocked a clearing attempt by San Jose, drew traffic to him and slipped a backhand pass to Heinen for a one-timer past Mackenzie Blackwood. Heinen has been a steady contributor of late, producing three goals and six points in the last eight games, and while his fantasy ceiling is capped by a lack of power-play time, he's offering some deep-league value while skating on the Bruins' second line at even strength.

  • Penguins' Danton Heinen: Scores in loss to Chicago

    Heinen netted a goal in the Penguins' 5-2 loss to Chicago on Tuesday.

    Heinen found the back of the net for the second straight game, bringing him up to eight goals and 22 points in 64 outings this season. That's not a bad offensive output when you consider that Heinen is serving primarily on the fourth line. His marker Tuesday didn't have much of an impact though. It came late in the third period and merely narrowed Chicago's lead to 4-2.

    Heinen scored on his only shot in Saturday's 5-1 win over the Red Wings.

As for Heinen, he's up to seven goals and 14 assists through 63 games while averaging 10:48 TOI, which is a solid rate of production given his scant role.

  • Penguins' Danton Heinen: Scores goal in overtime comeback

    Heinen scored a goal on five shots versus the Blue Jackets on Tuesday.

    Heinen brought his six-game goal drought to a close with Tuesday's tally. Following the departure of Brock McGinn, he 27-year-old Heinen has been pressed into service, racking up one goal on 16 shots, two assists and seven hits in six consecutive appearances. With Bryan Rust (personal) away from the team, it was Heinen that was bumped up to a second-line role with Evgeni Malkin and Jason Zucker on Tuesday.

  • Penguins' Danton Heinen: Snaps slump with three points

    Heinen scored a goal and two assists in Tuesday's 7-6 overtime win over the Panthers.

    There was plenty of offense to go around Tuesday, and Heinen took advantage, posting his first multi-point effort since Oct. 22, which was also the last time he'd found the back of the net -- a stretch of 34 games. The checking-line forward had only one assist over his prior 15 contests, and on the season he has a mere four goals and 14 points in 40 games, so don't anticipate a repeat performance any time soon.

  • Penguins' Danton Heinen: Records assist in Winter Classic

    Heinen picked up an assist in the Winter Classic against Boston on Monday.

    Heinen may have ended a seven-game pointless streak with his helper Monday but remains stuck in a 27-game goal drought dating back to Oct. 22 versus Columbus. Once Ryan Poehling (undisclosed) is cleared to play, Heinen could be in danger of being dropped from the lineup as a healthy scratch. As such, fantasy players probably will want to consider other low-end fantasy targets.

  • Penguins' Danton Heinen: Back in lineup

    Heinen recorded one hit in 9:18 of ice time versus Columbus on Tuesday.

    Heinen was back in the lineup for the injured Ryan Poehling (upper body) after having been a healthy scratch for the previous three contests. The 27-year-old Heinen figures to remain a fringe roster option for Pittsburgh this year.

  • Penguins' Danton Heinen: Snaps slump

    Heinen resurfaced with an assist in Friday's 4-2 win over the Maple Leafs.

    Heinen stormed out of the gate this season, adding three goals and the same number of assists through the first five contests. However, an ensuing road trip to Canada ended up being the start of an eight-game point drought leading up to Friday's game against the Buds. Heinen is centered by the venerable Jeff Carter, which helps support him offensively on the third line, but fantasy managers are looking for him to be more consistent.

  • Penguins' Danton Heinen: Two goals in win

    Heinen delivered two goals Saturday in a 6-3 win over the Blue Jackets.

    He had his captain, Sidney Crosby, singing his praises after the game. "He's a guy who knows how to find the back of the net," Crosby said of Heinen. "He has a great shot, but he goes to the tough areas, too." The 27-year-old winger is making the most of his line assignment alongside Crosby and has six points (three goals, three assists) in five games so far.

  • Penguins' Danton Heinen: Grabs helper Thursday

    Heinen picked up an assist versus Los Angeles on Thursday.

    Heinen has put together a strong start to the 2022-23 campaign with four points through the opening four contests. The 27-year-old British Columbia native should continue to feature in a third-line role with Jeff Carter and Kasperi Kapanen, which should set him up to record a second straight 30-plus-point campaign.

  • Penguins' Danton Heinen: Back with Pittsburgh

    Heinen signed a one-year, $1 million contract with the Penguins on Wednesday.

    Heinen was not qualified by the Penguins earlier this month, but that allowed them to get him back at a slightly lower salary. The 27-year-old had a career-high 18 goals with 15 assists and 138 shots on net in 76 contests with the Pens last year, so he's a good bet to make the Opening Night roster in a middle-six role. He'll be an unrestricted free agent next summer.

  • Penguins' Danton Heinen: Becomes unrestricted free agent

    Heinen did not receive a qualifying offer from the Penguins on Monday, Seth Rorabaugh of reports.

    Heinen tallied a career-high 18 goals with 33 points through 76 games with Pittsburgh last season. The 27-year-old winger laid out 66 hits while putting 138 shots on goal, both new career highs. He can offer some cheap scoring touch to a team looking to round out its forward group this offseason.

  • Penguins' Danton Heinen: Sets new goal mark

    Heinen registered a career-high 18 goals in 76 games this season, adding 15 assists and 66 hits along the way.

    Heinen often found himself stepping into a top-six role when injuries necessitated a promotion, which no doubt helped him reach his new personal best. With a strong season under his belt, the 26-year-old center could have plenty of options this summer but could be convinced to stay in Pittsburgh, where he could play with the likes of Evgeni Malkin or Jeff Carter as his center.
