Penguins' Marcus Pettersson: Returning to action Thursday
Pettersson (lower body) will be in the lineup against the Blue Jackets on Thursday, Penguins radio play-by-play announcer Josh Getzoff reports.
Pettersson will suit up for the first time since March 18 versus the Rangers, a stretch of 12 games on the shelf for the blueliner. Unfortunately, the 26-year-old Swede's return is a little too late as the Penguins have already been eliminated from the playoffs. Despite playing in just 67 games this year, Pettersson has already tied his career best in assists (23), shots (95) and hits (130).... See More ... See Less

Penguins' Marcus Pettersson: Progressing in recovery
Pettersson (lower body) traveled with the team and skated ahead of Tuesday's matchup with New Jersey. Coach Mike Sullivan told reporters, "The fact that all these guys are on the ice, traveling with us, it just suggests that they're that much closer to returning to the lineup," per Pens Inside Scoop.
With both Pettersson, Jan Rutta (lower body) and Dmitry Kulikov (lower body) all still on the shelf, the Penguins have had to make do with Mark Friedman and Chad Ruhwedel as their third pairing. On the year, the 26-year-old Pettersson has already tied his career high in assists (23) and surpassed his personal best in shots (95). He's also just one point away from matching his career high of 25, which was set in 2018-19. Once cleared to play, Pettersson figures to offer decent top-half fantasy value given his offensive contributions.... See More ... See Less
Penguins' Marcus Pettersson: Lands on LTIR
Pettersson (lower body) was designated for long-term injured reserve Monday retroactively to March 18.
Pettersson is just the latest Penguins' defenseman to find himself on the shelf for an extended stretch. At this point, Pettersson will likely miss the remainder of the regular season, though it could certainly be longer considering the team has yet to provide a specific recovery timeline. Despite the early end to his regular season, Pettersson has already reached the 20-point threshold for the third time in his NHL career.... See More ... See Less
Penguins' Marcus Pettersson: Being evaluated for LBI
Pettersson is undergoing evaluation for a lower-body injury he sustained in Saturday's game versus the Rangers, Taylor Haase of DKPittsburghSports.com reports.
Pettersson was in and out of the locker room a couple of times with the injury, but ultimately exited early in the third period. The defenseman joins a growing list of injuries for the Penguins on the blue line. If he can't play Monday versus the Senators, they may need to make a call-up from AHL Wilkes-Barre/Scranton to fill out their defense corps.... See More ... See Less
Penguins' Marcus Pettersson: Two helpers against Philly
Pettersson notched two assists in Saturday's 5-1 win over the Flyers.
The 26-year-old blueliner continues to be productive even without the benefit of power-play time. Pettersson has four multi-point performances in the last eight games, racking up a goal and nine points over that stretch, and he now sits two points short of tying the career-high 25 he set in 2018-19. His stay-at-home role for Pittsburgh makes it tough to expect that he'll keep up this run, but he's averaging a career-best 20:34 in TOI and has already set new personal bests in hits (123) and blocked shots (121), and when the Pens' offense is humming there is plenty of production to go around....

Pettersson provided two assists in Pittsburgh's 7-3 win over Tampa Bay on Sunday.

Penguins' Marcus Pettersson: Nabs helper to end slump
Pettersson collected an assist in Friday's 5-4 loss to the Islanders.
Pettersson snapped a nine-game point drought with the secondary helper. The 26-year-old defenseman hasn't had any luck in the scoring department this season, but he's registered 14 apples, 99 hits and 106 blocked shots through 52 games for a decent two-way profile.... See More ... See Less
Penguins' Marcus Pettersson: Drought lingers on
Pettersson failed to register a point against the Sharks on Tuesday, his ninth straight game in which he failed to get on the scoresheet.
In addition to his pointless streak, Pettersson still has yet to find the back of the net this season in 51 contests. Despite the recent slump, the 26-year-old defenseman could still reach the 20-point mark for the first time since 2019-20 when he put up two goals and 20 assists.... See More ... See Less

Pettersson dished out two assists in Wednesday's 5-4 overtime loss to the Senators.

This was the stay-at-home blueliner's first multi-point outing of the season, and Pettersson had mustered only one assist in his previous 20 games. If you're searching for offense from the blue line, the goalless Pettersson isn't the answer.... See More ... See Less

Penguins' Marcus Pettersson: Pointless streak continues
Pettersson failed to register a point against the Hurricanes on Sunday, his 10th straight game without getting onto the scoresheet.
Pettersson is also still searching for his first goal of the 2022-23 campaign, though he's never scored more than two in a season, so fantasy players shouldn't be expecting it any time soon. Despite his recent lack of production, the 26-year-old Swede's 10 points in 31 games does have him on pace to reach the 25-point mark for just the second time in his NHL career.... See More ...

Penguins' Marcus Pettersson: Garners assist in win
Pettersson logged an assist in Sunday's 5-3 win over the Blackhawks.
Pettersson helped out on Rickard Rakell's second-period tally. The Penguins' defense has been a bit shaky this year, and that's allowed Pettersson to get a look alongside Kris Letang on the top pairing recently. Pettersson has made the most of his role lately with five assists in his last seven contests, and he has nine helpers in 19 outings overall. That pace would have him shatter his career-best mark of 22 points in 69 contests in 2019-20, but the 26-year-old probably can't maintain it. He's added 30 shots on net, 39 hits, 35 blocked shots and a plus-6 rating, so he may be worth a look in deeper fantasy formats despite a lack of power-play time.... See More ... See Less
Penguins' Marcus Pettersson: Snags helper
Pettersson posted an assist, four shots on goal, three blocked shots and a plus-2 rating in Wednesday's 4-1 win over the Capitals.
Pettersson was bumped up to the top pairing Wednesday, as Brian Dumoulin has struggled defensively alongside Kris Letang in recent games. Pettersson's helper came on a Jake Guentzel empty-net goal in the third period. Through 13 contests, Pettersson has five assists, a plus-6 rating, 22 shots on net, 26 blocked shots, 24 hits and eight PIM. He's got a physical element to his game, but a lack of power-play time severely caps his scoring potential.... See More ... See Less
