Pens' Sutter Nets Ninth Goal

News: Brandon Sutter registered his ninth goal of the season in Tuesday's win over the Wild.
Analysis: Brandon Sutter has been quiet since returning from an illness in late December, producing two goals and no assists over the last eight games. He enjoyed a steady run of scoring earlier in the season while assuming a top-six spot for the Penguins, but his subsequent move to the third line has resulted in more frequent point droughts.

Pens' Sutter Likely Back In Saturday

News: Brandon Sutter (illness) appeared to be a full participant in Saturday's morning skate and looks like he'll draw back into the lineup later in the evening against the Capitals, Dave Molinari of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports.
Analysis: Brandon Sutter had been isolated from the team since Monday after coming down with an illness the Penguins feared could be related to the mumps. It was revealed Friday that Sutter tested negative for the virus, and with the center seemingly no longer feeling any ill effects, he'll be plugged back in on the team's second line next to Evgeni Malkin and Patric Hornqvist.

Penguins' Sutter Tests Negative For Mumps

News: Brandon Sutter has tested negative for the mumps virus, Josh Yohe of the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review reports.
Analysis: Brandon Sutter missed two games earlier this week with an illness, but it turns out he is not dealing with the mumps virus that is bothering a couple of his teammates. Sutter will likely be available for Pittsburgh's next game Saturday, but an official call on his status may not come until after the team's morning skate.

No Mumps Update Until Friday For Pens' Sutter

News: The results of Brandon Sutter's tests for the mumps won't be available until Friday.
Analysis: With the NHL observing a three-day break in the schedule for the holidays, the status of Brandon Sutter, Steve Downie, and Thomas Greiss will remain shrouded in mystery until the Pens reconvene for practice. Sutter has already missed the team's previous two games as a precaution.

Pens' Sutter (Illness) Remains Out Tuesday

News: Brandon Sutter (illness) won't be available Tuesday versus the Lightning.
Analysis: It would seem the Penguins are still awaiting results on the tests for the mumps that three players underwent Monday, as none of Brandon Sutter, Thomas Greiss or Steve Downie will be available for Tuesday's match. More information regarding Sutter's condition, as well as those of his teammates, should be revealed at some point during the upcoming Christmas break.

Penguins' Sutter Getting Checked For Mumps

News: Brandon Sutter is being tested for the mumps and will not play in Monday's game against the Panthers, Josh Yohe of The Tribune-Review reports.
Analysis: Brandon Sutter was able to travel to Florida for Monday's game, but with him possibly coming down with the mumps, he will be held out of action Monday. It remains to be seen if he will return to the team for Pittsburgh's next game Tuesday in Tampa.

Pens' Sutter Scores For First Time In 12 Games

News: Brandon Sutter scored his seventh goal of the season Monday against the Lightning.
Analysis: The shorthander was his second in 2014-15 and first since Opening Night. Coach Mike Johnston spoke effusively about Brandon Sutter's untapped offensive potential after Monday's game. At this stage of his career, fantasy owners would likely be happy with the half-point-per-game pace he's currently approaching for the first time since 2009-10 -- he has 14 points in 30 games.

Pens' Kicking Up Sutter's Role

News: Brandon Sutter tallied an assist Monday, registering a team-high four hits, two blocks and three shots on goal.
Analysis: He has helpers in both of the last two games and continues to skate on the team's No. 1 PP unit (though Pittsburgh was awarded just one power-play chance Monday). Brandon Sutter has totaled only 13 points in 27 tilts but is taking a more prominent offensive role on the Pens due to a plethora of injuries, centering Evgeni Malkin and Blake Comeau.

Pens' Sutter Has Goal Turned Into Assist Saturday

News: A scoring change following Saturday's win against Ottawa turned a Brandon Sutter goal into an assist.
Analysis: The switch gives Brandon Sutter six goals and six assists in 26 games. Playing with Evgeni Malkin at even strength -- as he did Saturday -- figures to bump up Sutter's fantasy stock in the short run. In addition, coach Mike Johnston's decision to place him on the No. 1 power-play unit is yet another reason to consider the centerman right now, especially in daily leagues.

Sutter Promotion Pays Dividends Saturday For Pens

News: Brandon Sutter snapped a seven-game pointless streak Saturday afternoon, scoring his first power-play goal of the season while skating on Pittsburgh's top power-play unit.
Analysis: Injuries have forced the Penguins to shuffle the makeup of their power play and Brandon Sutter took full advantage Saturday. He also centered the team's second line at even strength, skating with Evgeni Malkin at left wing and Blake Comeau on the right. He now has seven goals and 12 points in 26 contests.

Sutter Plays On Pittsburgh's Top Man Advantage

News: Brandon Sutter skated on Pittsburgh's No. 1 power-play unit against the Canucks on Thursday.
Analysis: While Brandon Sutter didn't score (and hasn't in seven games), his fantasy stock goes up playing with Sidney Crosby and Evgeni Malkin on the man advantage. He won't be a mainstay on the top unit as Pittsburgh becomes healthier, but for now he could make for a sneaky play. He's certainly earned coach Mike Johnston's trust -- moreso than he did with Dan Bylsma. Sutter has scored six goals and 11 points in Pittsburgh's first 25 games.

Sutter Stays Strong For Pens On Friday

News: Brandon Sutter scored his second goal in as many games Friday against the Islanders.
Analysis: The third-line center is off to a solid start with 11 points (6G,5A) in 18 games. Coach Mike Johnston has paired Brandon Sutter with the play-making Beau Bennett, giving fantasy owners hope that the centerman might average better than a half-point per game in 2014-15.

Pens' Sutter Nabs Goal Tuesday

News: Brandon Sutter netted a goal and went plus-3 in Tuesday's 4-0 win over the Canadiens.
Analysis: Brandon Sutter suffered a scare last Friday when he took a shot attempt from the Leafs' Roman Polak off his head, but he wasn't forced to miss any action as a result of the injury. He's been a productive depth player for the Penguins while playing along the second or third line this season, tallying five goals and five assists over 17 contests.

Pens' Sutter Prepared To Play Saturday

News: Brandon Sutter (ear) appears set to play Saturday against the Rangers.
Analysis: Coach Mike Johnson indicated at his pregame press conference that other than requiring a few stitches on his ear, Brandon Sutter was feeling fine after taking a Roman Polak shot to the face in Friday's win over the Maple Leafs. Sutter will meet with team doctors before the game for precautionary purposes, but it looks like he's on his way to resuming his usual duties as the Penguins' third-line center.

Pens' Sutter Leaves After Taking Puck To Head

News: Brandon Sutter was removed from Friday's win over the Maple Leafs after taking a puck to the head, Josh Yohe of the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review reports. Coach Mike Johnston said after the game that Sutter required a few stitches in his ear, but looks "okay."
Analysis: Johnston noted that Brandon Sutter's helmet absorbed most of the blow from the puck, but he could still be subjected to further concussion tests as a precaution. The Penguins will reassess his condition Saturday morning before reaching a decision on his status for their game later that night against the Rangers.

Pens' Sutter Stars Thursday In Winnipeg

News: Brandon Sutter scored a goal, assisted on two others and finished with a plus-3 rating Thursday.
Analysis: Brandon Sutter has settled into his usual third-line role nicely after spending time with Evgeni Malkin early on. While he can't be expected to produce nightly, the center has tended to put up numbers in short stretches in the past and makes for a decent play Saturday against Buffalo. Sutter's three-point night was his first since Feb. 11, 2010, versus the Sabres.

Pens' Sutter Comes Up Big Tuesday

News: Brandon Sutter snapped an eight-game goalless stretch with a game-winning goal against the Wild on Tuesday.
Analysis: Along with wingers Nick Spaling and Steve Downie, Brandon Sutter sparked the Penguins with his second goal of the season and first since Oct. 11 in Toronto. At some point, Beau Bennett is expected to skate with Sutter and Downie, giving Pittsburgh a third line with more offense than most other NHL squads. Sutter now has three goals and five points in 11 contests.

Pens' Sutter Notches Two Points In Win

News: Brandon Sutter assisted on two goals in Tuesday's 8-3 win over the Devils.
Analysis: Brandon Sutter, who was dropped to the third line over the weekend following Evgeni Malkin's move back to center, was one of seven Penguins players to produce two points against a hapless Devils defense. Unless Crosby or Malkin falls victim to injury or coach Mike Johnston returns Malkin to the wing, Sutter seems poised to remain in the bottom six regardless of how well he performs.

Pens' Sutter Back Down To Line Three

News: Brandon Sutter centered Pittsburgh's third line during Saturday's game-day skate.
Analysis: Since scoring goals in the team's first two games, Brandon Sutter has gone pointless with a minus-5 rating. He's averaged less than a half-point per game throughout his career and is on pace for similar production in 2014-15.

Sutter To Stay On Line Two For Week 2

News: The Pens are expected to keep Brandon Sutter as the team's second-line center Thursday and Saturday.
Analysis: Coach Mike Johnston confirmed Wednesday that Brandon Sutter will stay on the second line through Week 2, but at some point Evgeni Malkin is expected to move back to his familiar center spot from right wing. Eventually, Sutter will fall back to the Pens' third line, but for now fantasy owners can ride out his offensive production -- he has goals in both of Pittsburgh's first two contests.

Pens' Sutter Notches Second Goal Of Season

News: Brandon Sutter notched his second goal of the season in Saturday's win over the Maple Leafs.
Analysis: The early returns on new coach Mike Johnston's offensive system have been promising, and Brandon Sutter has been one of the many benefactors through two games. However, those two goals have came on just four shot attempts, so until Sutter starts looking for his own offense with greater frequency, he probably won't provide scoring with much consistency.

Pens' Sutter Moving Up?

News: Brandon Sutter could receive a short-term fantasy bump if he centers Pittsburgh's second line with Evgeni Malkin and Pascal Dupuis.
Analysis: The Penguins may move Malkin from center to wing for Week 1, giving Brandon Sutter a chance to move up from the third line. The team wants to keep Malkin's responsibilities to a minimum -- he's practiced a grand total of one time during training camp -- but wants to keep his prodigious talent in the lineup. Pittsburgh also wants to reward Sutter's performance in the 2103-14 playoffs (5G, 2A in 13 games). He's averaged better than a half point per game just once in six NHL seasons and that five years ago. Still, he could provide fantasy owners with sneaky fantasy value early on.

Sutter Scores Twice For Pens Thursday

News: Brandon Sutter potted a pair of goals Thursday, including an overtime game-winner against the Wild.
Analysis: The centerman, who seemingly played with different linemates on a nightly basis in 2013-14, has shown chemistry with Beau Bennett and Steve Downie in the early going. Brandon Sutter may not stick with Bennett if the team uses the right winger with Evgeni Malkin, but new coach Mike Johnston has made it a point to play the two together -- even on the penalty kill. Sutter has averaged a half a point only once in his six NHL seasons, but he could offer some fantasy value as a midseason waiver-wire pickup.

Pens Sign Sutter To Two-Year Deal

News: Brandon Sutter signed a two-year, $6.6 million deal with the Penguins on Tuesday.
Analysis: Brandon Sutter tallied 13 goals and 13 assists in 81 regular season games and played well during the Penguins' playoff run. He set new postseason career highs for goals (5), assists (2) and points (7) while posting a plus-7 rating.

Pens' Sutter Practices

News: Brandon Sutter (lower body) was present at Wednesday's practice, Dave Molinari of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports.
Analysis: Brandon Sutter left Monday's game with an injury, but it looks like he won't end up missing any time. Sutter has been stellar so far in the playoffs for the Pens, racking up three goals and two assists in six games.
