Greg McKegg will be a healthy scratch on Tuesday night as the Pittsburgh Penguins host the New York Rangers.

McKegg has two goals and four points in 26 games this season with the Penguins. The center stepped into the lineup and played in every game this year until December, where Evgeni Malkin's return to the lineup sent him to the press box and has kept him there since. Chad Ruhwedel will also be scratched.

Greg McKegg will be a healthy scratch in Friday's game against the Sabres.

Greg McKegg scored his second goal of the season Saturday.

The goal tied the game up at 2 with the Canucks but that was it for Pittsburgh as the Canucks scored twice to pull away for the win. McKegg's first goal three weeks ago was a shorthanded effort. He has no fantasy value.

So far it's looking like Greg McKegg will earn a roster spot with the Penguins.

"I've been really impressed with Kegger," Penguins coach Mike Sullivan said. "I think he's really made a positive impression on our coaching staff." Pittsburgh entered training camp with the third and fourth-line center spots open, which McKegg has used as motivation. If the 25-year-old forward does make the team though, he probably won't do much offensively in that bottom-six role. To be fair he has contributed offensively at the junior and AHL levels, but in the NHL he has five goals and nine points in 65 career contests.
