Pens' Adams Gets Assist, 10 PIM In Loss

News: Craig Adams recorded an assist and 10 PIM in Tuesday's loss to the Capitals.
Analysis: Craig Adams still offers production in the hits column (148 on the season), but his lack of scoring will forever inhibit his fantasy value. He's collected one goal and five assists over 52 games while occupying a fourth-line role.

Adams Fine After Practice Fight With Evgeni Malkin

News: Craig Adams dished out four hits in 11:28 TOI on Friday against the Lightning.
Analysis: The 37-year-old sported a face guard after skirmishing with Evgeni Malkin during Friday's gameday skate -- he took a high stick to his lip. The two forwards even played together during their final three shifts. Not surprisingly, Craig Adams failed to score on a Malkin setup. He now has one goal, four points and 74 hits in 33 contests.

Pens' Adams Activated From IR

News: Craig Adams (undisclosed) was activated from IR on Wednesday, signaling he'll be available for the Penguins' game later in the evening versus the Hurricanes.
Analysis: He'll be one of the three players making their return to action, as Beau Bennett (knee) and Christian Ehrhoff (lower body) were also activated Wednesday. Craig Adams doesn't have as much fantasy utility as either of those players, but his toughness on the fourth line makes him a valuable cog in real-life terms.

Pens' Adams Skates With Team

News: Craig Adams (undisclosed) skated with teammates Tuesday.
Analysis: Craig Adams was one of several injured Penguins to take to the ice Tuesday, with coach Mike Johnston stating afterwards that the veteran forward hadn't been ruled out as a lineup option for Wednesday's tilt with the Hurricanes. More information on that front should become available when the Penguins conduct their gameday skate Wednesday morning.

Pens' Adams Works Out Saturday

News: Craig Adams (undisclosed) was on the ice prior to Saturday's morning session, Dave Molinari of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports.
Analysis: Craig Adams didn't stick around to take part in any line work, and thus isn't expected to play during the evening's match with the Capitals. Still, Adams' mere presence on the ice is a positive development for the team's banged-up forward corps. He could be in line to practice with the Penguins over the next few days.

Pens Place Adams (Undisclosed) On Injured Reserve

News: Adams (undisclosed) was placed on injured reserve by the Penguins on Monday, Craig Adams of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports.
Analysis: Craig Adams missed Saturday's contest due to the injury, and the Penguins decided to place him on injured reserve. The move was likely made to open up a roster spot with three players being sent back to Pittsburgh to get tested for the mumps. Adams will be eligible to return for the team's game Saturday against the Capitals.

Iron Man Streak Ends For Pens' Adams

News: Craig Adams will miss Saturday's game against the Panthers with an undisclosed injury, Seth Rorabaugh of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports.
Analysis: The injury will result in Craig Adams' streak of consecutive games played ending at an incredible 319. The fourth-liner doesn't offer much in the form of offense, but his contributions as a hitter and penalty-killer make him a valued member of the Penguins. Bobby Farnham will attempt to fill his skates Saturday.

Pens' Adams Notches Rare Goal

News: Craig Adams was credited with the game-winning goal in Tuesday's blowout victory over the Devils.
Analysis: Craig Adams came out of the penalty box and immediately made an impact, beating a defenseless Cory Schneider for the breakaway winner. The fourth-liner hasn't scored more than 20 points in a season since 2005-06, and that trend doesn't figure to change for the 37-year-old.

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

News: Craig Adams will be suspended for Game 4 Wednesday night against the Flyers, the Team Sportcast Network reports.
Analysis: Craig Adams faced an automatic one-game suspension, pending review by the NHL, for his hit on Flyers' winger Scott Hartnell. The ruling was upheld Monday, and he'll miss Game 4 Wednesday as a result.

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.

News: Craig Adams (knee) returned to practice Tuesday, TSN reports.

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.
Analysis: Despite the expectation that he'll skate Tuesday morning, Craig Adams remains questionable for the game against the Blackhawks.

Penguins' Adams Suffers Lower Body Injury

News: Craig Adams left the ice during the second period of Saturday's game with an undisclosed lower body injury according to the Tribune Review.
Analysis: Consider him day-to-day until more news is provided by the team. Craig Adams has three goals and four assists through 31 games this season.

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.
