With a big hit on Kyle Turris and a resulting fight, Pittsburgh Penguins forward Zach Sill might have tilted PIM in favor of the very small amount of owners who started him.

He generated 20 penalty minutes with a five-minute fighting major, five-minute interference penalty and a game misconduct. Turris appears to be OK so far.
Dec 6 - 1:49 PM

Zach Sill is expected to pick up some extra penalty killing time with Pascal Dupuis out.

Sill has hardly seen any PK time this season let alone the face that he hasn't even cracked ten minutes of ice time in a game yet. This may be the young forward's big chance to prove he's capable of being a regular NHL'er.
Nov 21 - 6:30 PM

Zach Sill doesn't have a point in 34 career NHL games.

"It's coming," Sill said. "I try to not think about it, but you always want to get a goal. Or something. My mental well-being is fine. It doesn't affect me in that sense at all." The Penguins aren't paying Sill to score goals anyways, although that would certainly be a nice bonus. He's a defensive forward that isn't likely to ever have any fantasy value in standard leagues.
Nov 17 - 11:10 AM

Zach Sill has been summoned by the Pittsburgh Penguins.

Sill will make the team's opening game roster despite being put on waivers during training camp. He had no points and 12 penalty minutes in 20 games with Pittsburgh in 2013-14.
Oct 9 - 8:55 AM

The Pittsburgh Penguins have placed center Zach Sill on waivers.

Sill was hopeful of securing a job as a bottom-six forward but it was not to be. He managed to play 20 games with the Penguins last season and was held off the scoresheet, managing only 12 penalty minutes.
Oct 5 - 10:22 AM

Zach Sill is going into training camp with the hope of securing a bottom-six roster spot.

As a small indication of what the team thinks of Sill, he was given a locker in the team's main dressing room rather than the one for prospects. "I liked seeing that when I walked in the first day," said Sill. "It definitely makes you feel good." Of course, he's not a prospect at this point, but he's not an established NHL regular yet either. He did play in 20 games with Pittsburgh in 2013-14, but the 26-year-old forward has an uphill battle ahead of him in the fight for a roster spot.
Sep 19 - 11:04 AM
