Brandon Sutter was Pittsburgh's only goal scorer in the Penguins' 4-1 loss to the Flyers in Philadelphia Sunday.
Sutter scored his 19th goal of the season at 16:21 of the first period, giving the Pens a shortlived 4-1 lead. The Pens outshot the Flyers 47-20 but Philly goalie Steve Mason was hot, kicking aside 46 shots. The Flyers have won eight in a row against the Penguins dating back to last season. More importantly for Pittsburgh, though, is the fact that it has lost three in a row and is 3-8-1 in its past 12 games. The slump, which has featured two regulation losses to Philadelphia, has put the Pens in dangerous territory when it comes to the playoff race in the Eastern Conference. Apr 5 - 4:37 PM

Brandon Sutter scored against his former team, but the Penguins were smacked 5-2 by the Hurricanes on Thursday night.

Brandon Sutter has been a valuable fantasy asset if you play the shorthanded goals category.

Sutter has four which is tied for the NHL lead with Rick Nash and Tyler Toffoli. The third line center has 15 goals and 27 points this season and has three game winners to boot. His fantasy value lies in the shorthanded goals category.

Brandon Sutter had an assist in a 2-1 shootout loss versus Chicago on Sunday.

Sutter has 11 goals and 21 points in 54 contests in 2014-15. He's occasionally served on one of the Penguins' top two lines this season and during those stretches he's been noteworthy from a fantasy perspective. However, he's currently serving as a third liner, which makes it hard for us to recommend him in standard leagues.

Brandon Sutter scored the game-winning goal against his former squad, the Carolina Hurricanes, on Wednesday.

Sutter was sent to Pittsburgh as part of the Carolina Hurricanes' acquisition of Jordan Staal. Carolina didn't have the opportunity to counter with Staal on Wednesday though as he has a lower-body injury. Sutter has eight goals and 15 points in 35 contests in 2014-15.

Brandon Sutter will be in the lineup Saturday night against the Washington Capitals.

The Penguins center will return to the lineup Saturday to face the rival Capitals. Sutter has had a down year so far with just 14 points (seven goals and seven assists) but it looks like he will be centering Evgeni Malkin and Patric Hornqvist Saturday which should help him produce at a better rate than his current pace going forward.

Brandon Sutter's test results came back negative for the mumps.

In light of that Sutter has been cleared to come out of isolation. It's not clear if he'll also be available for Saturday's game, but with all the players the Penguins are missing, they could certainly use the help.

Brandon Sutter is being tested for mumps.

He has returned to Pittsburgh, so he didn't attend the Penguins' practice in Florida and he isn't expected to play Monday night. Sutter will go into isolation until the results of his tests come back.

Brandon Sutter is okay after taking a puck to his face in Friday's game.

Sutter received stitches to his left ear as a Cody Franson slapshot from the point found its way to Sutter's face by the side of the net. Sutter should be fine for Saturday's game against the New York Rangers.

Brandon Sutter scored a goal and added two assists for the Penguins in a' 4-3 shootout win over the Jets on Thursday night.

Sutter's three points give him eight on the season through 12 games so far. The game was testy to say the least, as the teams combined for 102 penalty minutes before Sidney Crosby and Evgeni Malkin each connected in the shootout to give Pittsburgh the extra point.

Brandon Sutter might start the season as the Penguins' second-line center.

That's of course completely dependent on the availability of Evgeni Malkin, which is unclear. Sutter had 13 goals and 26 points in 81 games in 2013-14. If Malkin's undisclosed injury turns out to be a long-term problem, then that will help Sutter from an offensive production perspective. For now though, we can't recommend picking up Sutter in standard leagues.

Brandon Sutter looked to be in top form during Pittsburgh's 3-2 preseason win over Minnesota on Thursday night, notching the opening goal on the power play and burying the overtime winner.

Sutter notched 26 points in 81 games last season, and is still looking to rediscover his scoring touch that developed in the WHL and earned him 40 points in 72 games with the Hurricanes in 2009-10. Simon Despres had two big assists in the Pens' win, while Thomas Vanek and Zach Parise scored for the WIld.

Brandon Sutter isn't sure what to expect from new head coach Mike Johnston.

It's believed the Penguins bench boss wants an up-tempo, puck-possession game. "Hopefully, the system is something the guys will like. I'm sure they will," Sutter said. "[Johnston] seems like a good hockey mind." Johnston has spoken with Sutter on the phone, but they are expected to meet in person this week. Sutter agreed to a two-year extension with the Penguins on Tuesday.

Brandon Sutter has inked a two-year, $6.6 million contract with the Pittsburgh Penguins.

The two-way center notched 13 goals and 13 assists in 81 games last season. Sutter is a key penalty killer and he contributed three shorthanded markers in 2013-14. His offense improved in the playoffs with five goals and seven points in 13 matches. Sutter fits in nicely on Pittsburgh's third line.

Pittsburgh GM Jim Rutherford believes adequate progress is being made in the team's efforts to re-sign center Brandon Sutter.

"The best way to characterize the process is it's moving in the right direction," Rutherford said. "I would suspect by next week we might be able to get something done." The defensive-minded Sutter plays a very important role for Pittsburgh and will due a raise on the $2.7 million he earned last season.
