Sutter Signs Five-Year Contract With Canucks

News: Brandon Sutter signed a five-year, $21.875 million contract with the Canucks on Tuesday.
Analysis: Canucks GM Jim Benning had previously stated that he viewed Brandon Sutter as a cornerstone player for the team, and Tuesday's move certainly confirms that sentiment. Benning and the Canucks will hope that Sutter can step in as a legitimate second-line center in 2015-16, a commodity the team hasn't enjoyed for quite some time. Sutter registered 33 points (21 goals, 12 assists) in 80 games with the Penguins last season, and even though an upgraded role awaits him, it's difficult to imagine the 26-year-old taking a huge step forward in his production. Beyond projected top liners Daniel Sedin and Radim Vrbata, the Canucks aren't particularly rich in scoring wingers that could complement Sutter.

Canucks, Sutter Closing In On Big Deal

News: Brandon Sutter and the Canucks are closing in on a contract extension that could be worth more than $20 million over five years, reports Elliotte Friedman of Hockey Night in Canada.
Analysis: Orca's general manager Jim Benning wasn't kidding when he described Brandon Sutter as a 'foundational' piece for his club. At that cash, the Orcas must believe Sutter is the solution for their second-line woes. He's been a No. 3 guy through his career, but could step up playing alongside scoring wingers. Monitor this heading to camp.

Pens Trade Sutter To Canucks

News: Brandon Sutter was traded to the Canucks on Tuesday.
Analysis: The Penguins will send Brandon Sutter and a third-round pick to Vancouver in exchange for Nick Bonino, Adam Clendening, and a 2016 second-round pick. Sutter notched 33 points and 14 penalty minutes in 80 games for the Pens last season. In five playoff contests, Sutter recorded a goal and an assist to go with a minus-1 rating. He's expected to center the Canucks' second or third line in 2015-16.

Pens' Sutter Notches Two Points In Game 2 Win

News: Brandon Sutter scored his first goal of the playoffs and had an assist in Saturday's Game 2 win over the Rangers.
Analysis: It was a great outing for Brandon Sutter, who now has three goals in his last three games dating to the regular season. The 26-year-old has six goals in his last 15 playoff games and is a key depth scorer for the Penguins. If Pittsburgh hopes to get past New York in the first round, guys like Sutter will need to step up and make a difference every game.

Pens' Sutter Nets Fifth Game-Winner Saturday

News: Brandon Sutter scored both Pittsburgh goals in a 2-0 win over Buffalo on Saturday.
Analysis: He matched his single-season career high in goals (21) with his strong effort against the Sabres. Brandon Sutter closed out the regular season with a surprising five goals in his last nine games. He has two goals and eight points in 27 games against the Rangers, the Pens' first-round playoff opponent.

Pens' Sutter Pots Goal In Loss

News: Brandon Sutter scored the team's lone goal in Sunday's 4-1 loss to the Flyers.
Analysis: The goal -- which came on the power play -- was Brandon Sutter's 19th of the year, bringing him within two of his career high. With Evgeni Malkin returning to the lineup Sunday, Sutter will likely return to a bottom-six role for the rest of the way, restricting his fantasy value to deeper formats.

Pens' Sutter Returns To Ice Sunday

News: Brandon Sutter (undisclosed) returned to action Sunday against the Sharks, logging two shot attempts and a hit in his 15:35 of ice time.
Analysis: Brandon Sutter suffered an injury late in Saturday's win over the Coyotes that seemed to put him at risk of missing Sunday's tilt, but evidently, the ailment wasn't anything too serious. The center had been enjoying a top-six role of late for the Penguins, but with Evgeni Malkin returning to the lineup Saturday, Sutter will now return to familiar spot on the club's third line.

Pens' Sutter Exits With Injury

News: Brandon Sutter exited Saturday's game against the Coyotes in the third period with an injury, Josh Yohe of the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review reports.
Analysis: With only a few minutes left in the match, it appears unlikely that Brandon Sutter will return. He's the second player to exit for the Penguins, after defenseman Kris Letang was removed from the game in the second period following a hit into the boards. Sutter should be viewed as day-to-day heading into Sunday's match against the Sharks.

Pens' Sutter Tallies Power-Play Goal Saturday

News: Brandon Sutter tallied a power-play goal on seven shot attempts in Saturday's 3-1 win over the Coyotes.
Analysis: The goal came in the second period, when Coyotes netminder Mike Smith accidentally cleared the puck right into Brandon Sutter's rump, with the biscuit then richocheting into the net. Sutter has assumed the Pens' No. 2 center role with Evgeni Malkin missing the last four games with a lower-body injury, but it had yet to bear fruit until Saturday. Considering the fluky nature of the goal and the fact that he'd been held without any points and attempted only four shot in his previous three games, there shouldn't be much optimism regarding Sutter's future production.

Sutter's Two Goals Spark Pens

News: Brandon Sutter opened the scoring with a shorthanded goal and then an even-strength goal Thursday in a 6-4 win over Edmonton.
Analysis: A relatively rare offensive outburst for Brandon Sutter, whose fantasy value remains quite limited except in the category of shorthanded goals -- with four, he's tied with Rick Nash and Tyler Toffoli for the NHL lead.

Pens' Sutter Adds Assist In Win

News: Brandon Sutter assisted on the Pens' lone goal in Sunday's loss to the Blackhawks.
Analysis: Brandon Sutter has three points over his last five games, but he's only managed six shot attempts during that time. That minimal output, along with his absence of power-play time, would seem to suggest that Sutter can't be counted on as a consistent source of points.

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.
