Nicholas Drazenovic will have a tough time cracking the Pittsburgh Penguins lineup.

Drazenovic was inked during the first day of free agency back in July and is likely headed to the AHL as the Penguins are strong up the middle with Sidney Crosby, Evgeni Malkin, Brandon Sutter and Joe Vitale ahead of him. However, the 26-year-old plays a good defensive game and if he manages to stick with the Penguins, it could be as a winger. He is not worth taking in fantasy pools.

The Columbus Blue Jackets sent Nicholas Drazenovic to the minors after Sunday's game.

Drazenovic started the game on the fourth unit but ended the game playing alongside Ryan Johansen and R.J. Umberger. He had no points and was minus-one in 9:42 minutes of action. The Blue Jackets do not play again until Thursday so perhaps they expect either Jared Boll or Nick Foligno back in the fold.
