Rob Scuderi missed Tuesday's practice due to an illness.

Scuderi still traveled with the Penguins to Denver for Wednesday's game against Colorado. Consider him questionable for that contest.

According to a report out of Pittsburgh, Christian Ehrhoff's concussion-like symptoms have returned.

"I had a little bump in the road," Ehrhoff said. "I felt great Wednesday coming back and the next day, too. But I had some symptoms again, and we're being cautious with that. I've been seeing the doctors." It was a relapse of the symptoms for Ehrhoff who was sidelined for 13 of the last 14 games for Pittsburgh. Ehrhoff was scheduled to travel with the team Tuesday for the game tonight against Colorado in Denver but that seems unlikely now. We will pass along more information when it comes but be prepared to have him out of the lineup for a little while longer at least.

The Anaheim Ducks have shipped Ben Lovejoy to the Pittsburgh Penguins in exchange for Simon Despres.

Anaheim acquired Lovejoy from the Pittsburgh Penguins back in 2013 in exchange for a 2014 fourth-round pick that became Anthony Angelo. He has a goal and 11 points in 40 games with the Ducks in 2014-15.
Mar 2 - 3:06 PM

Ian Cole has been sent to Pittsburgh for Roberto Bortuzzo and a seventh-round pick.

Cole has nine points, 63 blocks and a plus-16 rating in 54 games with the Blues this campaign.
Mar 2 - 1:40 PM

Evgeni Malkin was named the third star of the week for the period ending Mar. 1.

He produced two goals and four assists in two games. Malkin extended his current point streak to five straight contests. He has racked up three points in each of his last three outings. Malkin now has 64 points in 57 games.
Mar 2 - 12:09 PM

Kris Letang had two assists in a 5-3 victory over the Columbus Blue Jackets.

Letang has recorded at least a point in three of his last four games. He has 10 goals and 49 points in 56 contests in 2014-15.
Mar 2 - 10:47 AM

Marc-Andre Fleury stopped 22 of 25 shots in Sunday's 5-3 win over Columbus.

Fleury has now won three straight starts beating Florida, Washington and the Jackets in the process. The 30-year-old allowed just one goal through 40 minutes but he allowed two goals in the third with the Penguins up 5-1. Fleury has a 29-13-6 record with a 2.19 goals-against-average, a .924 save percentage and a league-leading eight shutouts.
Mar 1 - 8:28 PM

Evgeni Malkin scored two goals and one assist in Sunday's 5-3 win over Columbus.

The 28-year-old has posted three consecutive three-point games. Malkin scored his first goal at the 18:55 mark of the first period to tie the game at one. His second goal was scored on the power play and it gave the Penguins a 3-1 lead in the game. He also picked up an assist on David Perron's second period goal. Malkin now has 25 goals and 64 points in 57 games this season.
Mar 1 - 8:18 PM

Craig Adams is a healthy scratch in Sunday's game against Columbus.

The 37-year-old has one goal and six points in 55 games this season. He is a solid defensive forward, but his fantasy upside is obviously non-existent.
Mar 1 - 5:14 PM

Christian Ehrhoff won't be in Pittsburgh's lineup for their game against Columbus on Sunday.

It's unclear why Ehrhoff isn't playing in this game. No injury had been reported. Beat reporter Josh Yohe also mentioned that Ehrhoff looked fine after yesterday's practice. We will give you an update as soon as the relevant information is provided.
Mar 1 - 5:09 PM

Marc-Andre Fleury will get the start in Sunday's game against Columbus.

The 30-year-old has a 28-13-6 record with a 2.17 goals-against-average, a .924 save percentage and a league-leading eight shutouts. He has picked up a win in each of his last two starts.
Mar 1 - 2:43 PM

Daniel Winnik was impressive in his first practice with the Penguins and will make his debut on Sunday.

Winnik will play alongside Steve Downie and Brandon Sutter. "It's only one practice," Sutter said. "But you can just kind of tell that Winnik's a smart guy, that he'll be able to adjust pretty quickly. Hopefully chemistry will come." Winnik was with Toronto this season and had seven goals and 25 points in 58 games. He is not worth picking up at this time in anything but the deepest of pools but he was a plus-15 with the lowly Leafs.
Mar 1 - 8:51 AM

Matt Murray allowed just one goal in the month of February for the Baby Pens.

Murray had three shutouts while giving up just the one marker for Wilkes-Barre/Scranton. He has been great since December 28 as he is 10-2 with a 1.07 GAA and a .960 save percentage. He is sharing the net with Jeff Zatkoff but it looks like the 20-year-old Murray is the Penguins goalie of the future.
Mar 1 - 8:47 AM

Ian Cole participated in Saturday morning's practice and is probable for the night game against the Oilers.

He has been dealing with an upper-body injury but he seems to be over the worst of it. If Cole can play it will be at the expense of Chris Butler.
Feb 28 - 1:51 PM

Daniel Winnik's visa issues have been resolved and he is expected to practice with the Penguins on Saturday.

Winnik practiced on his own in Toronto while the visa issues were being worked on and he was set to drive to Pittsburgh later in the day. Winnik was dealt to the Penguins on Wednesday and is expected to be a third line winger. He can score the occasional goal and is an excellent penalty killer but do not expect a lot in fantasy stats from Winnik.
