Top Drew O'Connor News

  • Penguins' Drew O'Connor: Two points vs. Habs

    O'Connor tallied a goal and an assist in Thursday's 4-1 win over the Canadiens.

    O'Connor set up Kris Letang's tally in the first period before adding a goal of his own in the second, beating Cayden Primeau with a wrister to extend Pittsburgh's lead to 3-1. O'Connor now has goals in back-to-back games and five points (two goals, three assists) in his last five contests following a seven-game point drought. The 25-year-old forward is up to a career-best 20 points (eight goals, 12 assists) through 54 games this season.

  • Penguins' Drew O'Connor: Collects helper

    O'Connor provided an assist and two shots on goal in Thursday's 4-1 win over the Blackhawks.

    O'Connor has assists in consecutive games after going seven contests without a point. He set up Reilly Smith for a first-period marker Thursday, with that tally being the game-winner. O'Connor has played a middle-six role this season, logging 17 points, 93 shots on net and a plus-7 rating through 51 outings overall. That's unlikely to be enough offense to get him on the radar in most fantasy formats.

  • Penguins' Drew O'Connor: Credited with game-winning goal

    O'Connor scored a goal in Monday's 3-0 home victory against the Kraken.

    O'Connor opened the scoring at 0:49 of the second period with helpers to Bryan Rust and Evgeni Malkin. Since the Kraken didn't score, O'Connor was credited with the first game-winning goal of his career through 120 NHL games. His six goals also mark a new career best for the 25-year-old left wing. He'll look to carry over the momentum into Saturday's road game against the Golden Knights.

  • Penguins' Drew O'Connor: Two points in Boston

    O'Connor produced a goal and an assist in Thursday's 6-5 win over the Bruins.

    Both points came in a wild first period that saw the two teams combine for six goals, including five by the 7:21 mark. It's the first multi-point performance of the season for O'Connor, and the 25-year-old has already established a new career high on the season with 13 points (five goals, eight helpers) through 37 games.

  • Penguins' Drew O'Connor: Scores goal in comeback win

    O'Connor scored a goal on six shots versus Tampa Bay on Thursday.

    O'Connor found the back of the net for the first time since Nov. 11 versus Buffalo, a stretch of eight games without a goal. With Rickard Rakell (upper body) on long-term injured reserve, the 25-year-old O'Connor has found himself bumped up to the second line. Playing alongside Evgeni Malkin should bolster O'Connor's fantasy value and offensive production.

  • Penguins' Drew O'Connor: Picks up assist

    O'Connor garnered an assist in Sunday's 3-0 win over the Golden Knights.

    O'Connor hasn't produced much in the way of offense this season, registering just four points in 17 outings. Still, the 25-year-old has been a mainstay on the Penguins' third line and could set new personal bests this year in games played and points even with his slow production. His high marks in those categories are 46 contests and 11 points, set last season.

  • Penguins' Drew O'Connor: Assists in loss

    O'Connor garnered a helper in Monday's 4-3 defeat to Anaheim.

    O'Connor appears to have cemented himself in the Penguins' lineup, appearing in all nine games to open the season while averaging 12:25 of ice time. The 25-year-old New Jersey native is still looking for his first goal of the campaign and has managed just two assists.

  • Penguins' Drew O'Connor: Inks two-year deal

    O'Connor agreed to terms on a two-year. $1.85 million contract with Pittsburgh on Wednesday.

    O'Connor logged 46 games for the Pens last season in which he recorded five goals on 62 shots, six assists and 63 hits while averaging 9:49 of ice time. With his new contract in hand, O'Connor should be in contention for regular appearances in the lineup, likely in a bottom-six role, where he should be capable of reaching the 20-point threshold.

  • Penguins' Drew O'Connor: Playing versus Columbus

    O'Connor (upper body) will suit up against the Blue Jackets on Thursday, Penguins radio play-by-play announcer Josh Getzoff reports.

    O'Connor put together a decent 2022-23 campaign in which he tallied five goals, six assists and 61 shots in 45 games played, all of which are career bests. Looking ahead to next season, the 24-year-old winger will need a new contract but as a restricted free agent should be back with the Pens.

  • Penguins' Drew O'Connor: Game-time call

    O'Connor (upper body) is expected to be a game-time decision for Thursday's regular-season finale versus Columbus, Wes Crosby of NHL.com reports.

    O'Connor's status versus Columbus may not be determined until Pittsburgh takes the ice for pregame warmups. He's picked up 11 points through 45 games while skating in a bottom-six role this season.

  • Penguins' Drew O'Connor: Game-time call Tuesday

    O'Connor (upper body) will be a game-time decision versus the Blackhawks on Tuesday.

    O'Connor missed Saturday's clash with the Red Wings due to his upper-body issue but could be ready to return against Chicago. The bottom-six winger is currently stuck in an 18-game goal drought during which he managed three assists, 21 shots and 20 hits while averaging 10:30 of ice time. If O'Connor can't play Tuesday, Alexander Nylander figures to step into the lineup.

  • Penguins' Drew O'Connor: Out of Saturday's lineup

    O'Connor (upper body) won't be in the lineup Saturday versus Detroit, Matt Vensel of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports.

    O'Connor took a Matt Dumba hit in the first period Thursday and while he returned to action for the final two periods, he is unable to play Saturday. O'Connor has five goals and 11 points in 45 games this season. Consider him day-to-day.

  • Penguins' Drew O'Connor: Back with Penguins

    O'Connor was recalled from AHL Wilkes-Barre/Scranton on Saturday, Rob Rossi of The Athletic reports.

    O'Connor was sent down Friday in what was a paper move to save salary cap space and make him eligible for the AHL playoffs. O'Connor has eight points in 27 games with the Penguins this season.

  • Penguins' Drew O'Connor: Nets opening goal vs. Lightning

    O'Connor provided a goal in Pittsburgh's 7-3 victory over Tampa Bay on Sunday.

    O'Connor opened the scoring just 3:20 into the game. It was his fourth goal and seventh point in 25 outings this season. O'Connor entered the contest averaging 9:02 of ice time in 2022-23, and the 24-year-old is unlikely to make regular offensive contributions unless his role grows substantially.

  • Penguins' Drew O'Connor: Back in lineup Tuesday

    O'Connor stepped into a fourth-line role against the Sharks on Tuesday after Ryan Poehling (upper body) was ruled out.

    O'Connor had been a healthy scratch for three straight contests prior to Tuesday's tilt. In his last five contests, the 24-year-old natural center generated one goal on six shots, two assists and two hits despite averaging just 8:49 of ice time. O'Connor will likely remain a fringe lineup player the rest of the way and could find himself watching as a healthy scratch periodically.

  • Penguins' Drew O'Connor: Scores second goal of 2022-23

    O'Connor scored a goal in a 4-1 loss to Winnipeg on Friday.

    O'Connor found the back of the net at 16:42 of the first period to even the contest at 1-1, but the Penguins were unable to build anything from there. O'Connor has two goals and no assists in 10 games this season. He entered the contest averaging just 7:52 of ice time and logged 10:49 on Friday. Unless the 24-year-old's role grows meaningfully, he's unlikely to make regular offensive contributions.

  • Penguins' Drew O'Connor: Scores first goal of season

    O'Connor found the back of the net in Pittsburgh's 5-4 overtime loss to Detroit on Wednesday.

    O'Connor got the scoring started at 2:36 of the first period. It was his first goal and point in six games in 2022-23. He entered the contest averaging just 7:53 of ice time this season and logged only 5:11 on Wednesday despite his early marker. As long as his role's that limited, the 24-year-old is unlikely to make significant offensive contributions.
