Simon Despres returns to the Pittsburgh Penguins lineup against the New York Islanders on Saturday.
Despres is an interesting peripheral producer: in 17 games played, he has five points, 38 PIM, 53 hits and 23 blocked shots. Considering the quality of his team (+25 for his career), there are worse pick-and-pop options, though you're unlikely to need a quick defenseman add today. Nov 22 - 5:04 PM
