    Heinen found the back of the net for the second straight game, bringing him up to eight goals and 22 points in 64 outings this season. That's not a bad offensive output when you consider that Heinen is serving primarily on the fourth line. His marker Tuesday didn't have much of an impact though. It came late in the third period and merely narrowed Chicago's lead to 4-2.

  • Penguins' Danton Heinen: Tally helps Crosby unlock milestone

    Heinen scored on his only shot in Saturday's 5-1 win over the Red Wings.

  • Penguins' Danton Heinen: Scores goal in overtime comeback

    Heinen scored a goal on five shots versus the Blue Jackets on Tuesday.

    Heinen brought his six-game goal drought to a close with Tuesday's tally. Following the departure of Brock McGinn, he 27-year-old Heinen has been pressed into service, racking up one goal on 16 shots, two assists and seven hits in six consecutive appearances. With Bryan Rust (personal) away from the team, it was Heinen that was bumped up to a second-line role with Evgeni Malkin and Jason Zucker on Tuesday.

  • Penguins' Danton Heinen: Snaps slump with three points

    Heinen scored a goal and two assists in Tuesday's 7-6 overtime win over the Panthers.

    There was plenty of offense to go around Tuesday, and Heinen took advantage, posting his first multi-point effort since Oct. 22, which was also the last time he'd found the back of the net -- a stretch of 34 games. The checking-line forward had only one assist over his prior 15 contests, and on the season he has a mere four goals and 14 points in 40 games, so don't anticipate a repeat performance any time soon.

  • Penguins' Danton Heinen: Records assist in Winter Classic

    Heinen picked up an assist in the Winter Classic against Boston on Monday.

    Heinen may have ended a seven-game pointless streak with his helper Monday but remains stuck in a 27-game goal drought dating back to Oct. 22 versus Columbus. Once Ryan Poehling (undisclosed) is cleared to play, Heinen could be in danger of being dropped from the lineup as a healthy scratch. As such, fantasy players probably will want to consider other low-end fantasy targets.

  • Penguins' Danton Heinen: Back in lineup

    Heinen recorded one hit in 9:18 of ice time versus Columbus on Tuesday.

    Heinen was back in the lineup for the injured Ryan Poehling (upper body) after having been a healthy scratch for the previous three contests. The 27-year-old Heinen figures to remain a fringe roster option for Pittsburgh this year.

  • Penguins' Danton Heinen: Snaps slump

    Heinen resurfaced with an assist in Friday's 4-2 win over the Maple Leafs.

    Heinen stormed out of the gate this season, adding three goals and the same number of assists through the first five contests. However, an ensuing road trip to Canada ended up being the start of an eight-game point drought leading up to Friday's game against the Buds. Heinen is centered by the venerable Jeff Carter, which helps support him offensively on the third line, but fantasy managers are looking for him to be more consistent.

  • Penguins' Danton Heinen: Two goals in win

    Heinen delivered two goals Saturday in a 6-3 win over the Blue Jackets.

    He had his captain, Sidney Crosby, singing his praises after the game. "He's a guy who knows how to find the back of the net," Crosby said of Heinen. "He has a great shot, but he goes to the tough areas, too." The 27-year-old winger is making the most of his line assignment alongside Crosby and has six points (three goals, three assists) in five games so far.

  • Penguins' Danton Heinen: Grabs helper Thursday

    Heinen picked up an assist versus Los Angeles on Thursday.

    Heinen has put together a strong start to the 2022-23 campaign with four points through the opening four contests. The 27-year-old British Columbia native should continue to feature in a third-line role with Jeff Carter and Kasperi Kapanen, which should set him up to record a second straight 30-plus-point campaign.

  • Penguins' Danton Heinen: Back with Pittsburgh

    Heinen signed a one-year, $1 million contract with the Penguins on Wednesday.

    Heinen was not qualified by the Penguins earlier this month, but that allowed them to get him back at a slightly lower salary. The 27-year-old had a career-high 18 goals with 15 assists and 138 shots on net in 76 contests with the Pens last year, so he's a good bet to make the Opening Night roster in a middle-six role. He'll be an unrestricted free agent next summer.

  • Penguins' Danton Heinen: Becomes unrestricted free agent

    Heinen did not receive a qualifying offer from the Penguins on Monday, Seth Rorabaugh of reports.

    Heinen tallied a career-high 18 goals with 33 points through 76 games with Pittsburgh last season. The 27-year-old winger laid out 66 hits while putting 138 shots on goal, both new career highs. He can offer some cheap scoring touch to a team looking to round out its forward group this offseason.

  • Penguins' Danton Heinen: Sets new goal mark

    Heinen registered a career-high 18 goals in 76 games this season, adding 15 assists and 66 hits along the way.

    Heinen often found himself stepping into a top-six role when injuries necessitated a promotion, which no doubt helped him reach his new personal best. With a strong season under his belt, the 26-year-old center could have plenty of options this summer but could be convinced to stay in Pittsburgh, where he could play with the likes of Evgeni Malkin or Jeff Carter as his center.

  • Penguins' Danton Heinen: Finds twine on power play

    Heinen scored a power-play goal on three shots and went minus-2 in Sunday's 4-3 overtime loss to the Rangers in Game 7.

    Heinen's first-period tally tied the game at 1-1. The 26-year-old made the most of a third-line assignment in the playoffs, netting three goals with 18 shots on net, 11 hits and a minus-1 rating in seven appearances. He's set for restricted free agency this summer after logging 33 points, 138 shots on net and 66 hits in 76 regular-season outings.

  • Penguins' Danton Heinen: Scores again in win

    Heinen scored a goal on three shots in Monday's 7-2 win over the Rangers.

    Heinen deflected a Kris Letang shot past Igor Shesterkin to extend Pittsburgh's lead to 5-2 in the second period. The 26-year-old winger has goals in back-to-back contests after netting the game-winner Saturday. While it's hard to expect consistent scoring from Heinen, he can provide some offensive value in the Penguins' middle six. He finished the regular season with 18 goals and 15 assists in 76 games.

  • Penguins' Danton Heinen: Nets game-winner Saturday

    Heinen scored a goal on four shots, added four PIM and doled out three hits in Saturday's 7-4 win over the Rangers in Game 3.

    Heinen took a couple of penalties in the contest, but the Rangers weren't able to cash in on the power play. The 26-year-old then made up for it by scoring off of a turnover to give the Penguins a 5-4 lead at 11:02 of the third period. The tally was his first point in three games against the Rangers in this first-round playoff series. Heinen posted 33 points and 138 shots on net in 76 regular-season contests, mainly in a similar middle-six role as he's seen in the postseason.

  • Penguins' Danton Heinen: Scores goal in win

    Heinen scored a goal on three shots in Thursday's 6-3 win over the Islanders.

    Heinen now has goals in back-to-back games after being held to a single point (an assist) in his previous seven contests. The goal was the 16th of the season for the 26-year-old forward, matching his career-high. Heinen has shown some flashes of offensive potential in his five full NHL seasons but has yet to put together an extended stretch of consistent production. He's seen his ice time dwindle recently, bouncing between Pittsburgh's third and fourth lines, making it hard to expect a continuation of his brief goal-scoring streak.

  • Penguins' Danton Heinen: Dealing with illness

    Heinen was absent from practice Monday due to a non-COVID-19 illness, Pens Inside Scoop reports.

    Heinen, Kasperi Kapanen and Anthony Angello all missed Monday's practice session due to illness. As a result, the team elevated Filip Hallander from the minors in case any of the aforementioned trio can't play against Colorado on Tuesday. For his part, the 26-year-old Heinen has just three points in his last 10 contests, along with 11 shots and 10 hits.

  • Penguins' Danton Heinen: Will suit up against Avs

    Heinen (illness) will be in action versus Colorado on Tuesday, Wes Crosby of reports.

    Heinen has managed 14 goals and 13 assists in 64 games this season but has struggled for consistency. The British Columbia native is currently in a three-game pointless streak after having previously scored in consecutive contests for the seventh time this year. As such, Heinen shouldn't be expected to offer more than mid-range fantasy value.
