Pens' Adams Picks Up Two Assists

News: Craig Adams had two assists in Monday's win over the Sabres.
Analysis: Incredibly, the two helpers represented the first points for Craig Adams since Nov. 1, a span of 38 games. It's tough to imagine Adams suddenly blossoming into much of a scorer while he continues to see most of his action on the checking line.

Adams Scoring Like Sid For Pens

News: Craig Adams scored his second goal in as many games Saturday against Buffalo.
Analysis: Craig Adams joked after the opener that he felt he could maintain his 82-goal pace -- so far he's right. The penalty-killing specialist scored all of three goals in 48 games last season. It would be surprising to see the 36-year-old score more than seven or eight goals in 2013-14.

Pens Extend Adams

News: The Penguins signed Craig Adams to a two-year, $1.4 million extension Friday.
Analysis: The gritty winger recorded three goals and six assists in 48 games last season for the Penguins. His $700,000 average salary means he will provide cheap veteran leadership to a Penguins roster that is fairly top-heavy with big contracts.

Pens' Adams In The Lineup For Friday's Game 2

News: Craig Adams is in the lineup Friday for Game 2 against the Senators, the team's official website reports.
Analysis: Craig Adams was absent during Friday's morning skate, but it sounds like it was just for rest than as a result of any sort of injury. He'll likely be ticketed for his usual ice time.

Two-Goal Outburst Friday For Adams

News: Craig Adams recorded his first two-goal game since 2006 on Friday.
Analysis: His last eight goals, dating back to Jan. 25, 2011, have all come on the road. Craig Adams' fantasy value is limited to hits. He registered two hits Friday, giving him 28 in 15 games.

Suspension

News: Craig Adams will likely miss Game 4 Wednesday night due to a suspension, the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review reports.
Analysis: Craig Adams will likely face a suspension for Wednesday night's Game 4 against the Flyers, pending a review by the NHL. Adams was assessed an instigator, in addition to a fighting major, when he provoked a fight with Flyers' winger Scott Hartnell with less than five minutes remaining in regulation.

Adams Suspended For Game 4

Penguins Should Have Adams Tuesday

News: Craig Adams, who hurt his knee in Sunday's practice, skated Tuesday morning and says he's "good to go" for Tuesday's game against the Senators, according to the Penguins' official site.
Analysis: While the Pittsburgh lineup is still mired in injuries, it looks like two bullets were dodged in that both Craig Adams and scoring winger James Neal have escaped serious injury.

Penguins' Adams Hurts Knee

News: Craig Adams will have his right knee evaluated Monday after he left Sunday's practice, the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports.
Analysis: Craig Adams isn't much of a factor on offense, but he is one of the Penguins' best defensive forwards. The report notes that Adams aggravated a previous injury, so it looks like he's going to miss some time, a recurring theme in Pittsburgh these days.

Pens' Adams OK After Lower Body Injury

News: Craig Adams (lower body) was held scoreless, but played 13:19 against the Blackhawks on Tuesday night.
Analysis: His availability was in question after he left Saturday's game in the second period with the injury, but it doesn't appear to be anything that will limit Craig Adams' availability any further.

Adams Expected To Skate Tuesday Morning For Penguins

News: Craig Adams (lower body) is expected to participate in Pittsburgh's morning skate prior to Tuesday's game against Chicago, Penguins.NHL.com reports.

Good Night For Pens' Adams

News: Craig Adams was one of the best Penguins on the ice Saturday night. He scored a goal and added an assist in a 3-2 win over the Hurricanes.
Analysis: He now has goals in back-to-back games. His value is limited but this is a nice little burst.

Pens' Adams Practicing After August Surgery

News: Craig Adams (appendectomy) is feeling "100 percent ready to go" after August surgery, the Penguins' Web site reports.
Analysis: "It's going great," Craig Adams said. "It was tough for a couple weeks not doing anything, but I had enough time to get back into some sort of shape. As camp goes on here, I'm feeling better and better." Adams has averaged 184 hits in the last two years but is more of a penalty killer than a fantasy commodity.

Pens' Adams Has Appendectomy

News: Craig Adams had an appendectomy Friday, but is expected to be ready for the start of training camp, the Pens' official site reports.
Analysis: He's a depth-line contributor anyway, so Craig Adams' availability is of more significance to the Penguins than it is to fantasy owners considering he's chipped in 25 points over the last two seasons.

Pittsburgh Re-Signs Adams

News: Adams signed a two-year contract with Pittsburgh on Thursday worth $675,000 per year, Globe & Mail writer James Mirtle reports.
Analysis: Adams is one of the league's more active hitters, but his game generally translate to much fantasy utility. He has just 25 points over the last two years, skating to a minus-5 rating over that same span.

Pens' Adams Rests Tuesday

Adams Pots Pittsburgh's Lone Goal Friday

Analysis: Adams took advantage of a Dwayne Roloson miscue, giving Pittsburgh temporary hope during the second half of Period 2. Adams' score cut the Lightning's lead to 3-1, but the Pens would get no closer.

Adams Wins It For Pittsburgh Tuesday

News: Adams scored his first even-strength goal ever for the Pens in Tuesday's 1-0 win over the Islanders.
Analysis: The goal was not only Adams' first at even strength in 139 regular-season games with Pittsburgh, but it also proved to be the game-winner. Adams remains one of the best penalty killers on the Penguins roster.

Adams Goes Crazy for Pens Wednesday Night

News: Adams tallied his first regular-season goal since Dec. 16, 2008 on Wednesday and added two assists in an amazing first period of production.
Analysis: His goal and first assist both came short-handed, making the series of events even more unusual. Adams is a penalty killer. If he scores another goal or two the rest of the way, the Pens would consider that as nothing more than a bonus.

Adams in search of first goal

News: Penguins RW Craig Adams failed to record a point and finished at minus-1 in 7:59 of ice time on Monday against the Wild. Adams has no points in 14 games and has yet to score in 47 appearances.
Analysis: Adams is averaging just over 11 minutes per contest, so it's not like he is getting a ton of opportune scoring chances. He has made his living in the NHL as a defensive forward. Use him only in Fantasy leagues that reward heavily for short-handed stats.

Adams without goal in 32 games

News: Penguins RW Craig Adams failed to record a point and finished at even in 11:18 of ice time Thursday against the Canadiens. Adams has two assists in his last six games. He still hasn't scored in 32 games.
Analysis: Adams is one of those players that you always see in the lineup, but he doesn't create much of a stir. He is pretty much a lower-line and penalty-killing presence for Pittsburgh. Use him only in Fantasy leagues that reward heavily for short-handed stats.

Penguins get lines set without Malkin

News: The Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports that Penguins coach Dan Bylsma has set his scoring lines for Friday's game at Columbus, the first without Evgeni Malkin. Chris Kunitz, Sidney Crosby and Bill Guerin will remain on the top line, while Jordan Staal, Ruslan Fedotenko and Chris Bourque will be on the second unit. Matt Cooke and Craig Adams will be fixtures on the third line, with Pascal Dupuis, Mike Rupp, Eric Godard and Chris Conner rotating in the final spot.
Analysis: This move really only affects the value of Staal, who will move up into the scoring lines in the place of Malkin. You might want to get Staal active in more than 47 percent of leagues for Fantasy Week 5 (Nov. 2-8). Everyone else retains their original Fantasy value.

Pens keep fourth-liner Adams

News: Pittsburgh signed Craig Adams, a fourth-line forward, to a $1.1 million, two-year contract Monday. Adams made $600,000 last season. He will make $550,000 during each season of his new deal.
Analysis: Adams had three goals and two assists in 24 playoff games for the Stanley Cup champion Penguins. He had two goals and four assists in 36 games with Chicago and one assist in nine regular-season games after being claimed off waivers by Pittsburgh on March 4. He will be a solid veteran presence for Pittsburgh, but won't have much Fantasy value Draft Day outside of leagues that reward heavily for short-handed stats.
