Golden Knights' Teddy Blueger: Generates helper
Blueger recorded an assist in Tuesday's 4-0 win over the Stars in Game 3.
Blueger has played in five straight games, picking up two points, four shots on net and six hits. That's all of his playoff appearances this spring, as he's been a solid fourth-liner since Michael Amadio exited the lineup in the second round. Blueger is unlikely to drive play much on his own, so he's not much of an option for many DFS managers.... See More ... See Less
Golden Knights' Teddy Blueger: Provides goal Friday
Blueger netted a goal in a 4-3 overtime win over Dallas in Game 1 on Friday.
Blueger's marker came midway through the third period to give Vegas a 3-2 edge. It was his first goal and first point in three playoff contests this year. Blueger has been serving on the fourth line alongside William Carrier and Keegan Kolesar, but it wouldn't be shocking if he comes out of the lineup at some point, especially if Michael Amadio, who has been a healthy scratch for the last three outings, draws back in....

Golden Knights' Teddy Blueger: Picks up assist Monday
Blueger notched an assist in Monday's 4-3 shootout win over the Wild.
Blueger snapped his four-game point drought with the secondary helper on a Keegan Kolesar tally in the first period. The 28-year-old Blueger was a healthy scratch last Thursday, though that's simply a product of the Golden Knights having more healthy players than spots in the lineup. He's up to 16 points, 80 shots on net, 68 hits, 45 blocked shots and a minus-9 rating through 60 appearances between Vegas and Pittsburgh this season.... See More ... See Less
Golden Knights' Teddy Blueger: Deposits goal in Tuesday's win
Blueger scored a goal on two shots in Tuesday's 4-3 win over the Canucks.
Blueger has tallied twice over his last four games. The 28-year-old has been a great fit in the Golden Knights' bottom six with five points through 10 contests after posting 10 points in 45 outings with the Penguins to begin the year. Blueger has added 75 shots on net, 62 hits, 44 blocked shots and a minus-7 rating this season.... See More ... See Less
Golden Knights' Teddy Blueger: Nets goal in win
Blueger scored a goal on three shots and blocked two shots in Tuesday's 5-3 win over the Flyers.
Blueger has a goal and three assists over his last six games. The fourth-liner has been a good fit with the Golden Knights, and he's up to 14 points, 71 shots on net, 58 hits, 40 blocked shots and a minus-7 rating through 52 contests this season when accounting for his time with the Penguins....

Golden Knights' Teddy Blueger: Sets up empty-netter
Blueger picked up an assist and fired three shots on goal in Sunday's 4-0 win over the Hurricanes.
Blueger led all Vegas forwards with 18:15 of ice time, and he was able to set up Brett Howden for the last goal of the game. The 28-year-old Blueger is settling right in with his new team, earning three helpers over his first five outings as a Golden Knight. He has 13 points, 68 shots on net, 58 hits, 38 blocked shots and a minus-6 rating through 50 contests between Vegas and Pittsburgh this season.... See More ... See Less
Golden Knights' Teddy Blueger: Grabs apple Thursday
Blueger provided an assist and added 12 PIM in Thursday's 4-3 overtime win over the Lightning.
Blueger set up Keegan Kolesar for a goal in the opening minute of the game. The Golden Knights' fourth line would get more attention in the third period, as they were involved in a brawl with the Lightning's fourth line, leading to misconducts for all 10 players on the ice. Blueger doesn't mix it up like that very often -- he's a quieter kind of defensive forward on the fourth line. The Latvian has 12 points, 65 shots on net, 28 PIM, 58 hits and a minus-7 rating through 49 appearances between Vegas and Pittsburgh this season.... See More ... See Less
Golden Knights' Teddy Blueger: Gets first helper with new team
Blueger recorded an assist in Sunday's 4-3 win over the Canadiens.
It took Blueger just two games to get on the scoresheet for Vegas after he was traded from Pittsburgh. The 28-year-old has stepped into the fourth-line center job right away with Nicolas Roy (lower body) out. Blueger is up to 11 points, 64 shots on net, 56 hits, 36 blocked shots and a minus-8 rating through 47 appearances this season. Four of his points have come in his last 12 outings.... See More ...

Golden Knights' Teddy Blueger: On the move to Vegas
Blueger was traded from the Penguins to the Golden Knights on Wednesday for a 2024 third-round pick and Peter Diliberatore.
Blueger has two goals and eight assists through 45 contests this season, serving almost exclusively as a fourth-line center. He'll likely fill a similar role in Vegas going forward, though it's unclear if he'll be ready to play by Friday's game versus the Devils.... See More ... See Less
Penguins' Teddy Blueger: Scores second goal of 2022-23
Blueger contributed a goal in the Penguins' 7-3 win over Tampa Bay on Sunday.
Blueger's marker came at 16:20 of the second period, and it extended the Penguins' lead to 4-2. He has two goals and 10 points in 44 contests in 2022-23. Blueger also recorded an assist Saturday, but before that he endured a six-game scoring drought from Feb. 11-23.... See More ... See Less
Penguins' Teddy Blueger: Gathers helper in win
Blueger posted an assist and three shots on goal in Friday's 6-3 win over the Ducks.
It took over a month, but Blueger finally got his first point of 2023. He set up a Pierre-Olivier Joseph goal in the first period. The helper was Blueger's first point in 15 games, and his goal drought dates back to Dec. 6. The 28-year-old has just eight points with 47 shots, 44 hits, 32 blocked shots and a minus-4 rating through 36 contests in a fourth-line role.... See More ... See Less
Penguins' Teddy Blueger: Struggling offensively
Blueger is stuck in a 23-game goal drought during which he's managed just two helpers.
Blueger's struggles are symptomatic of a Pens' third line that has underwhelmed in recent weeks. While Blueger is likely secure in his spot as the preferred choice of center to anchor the line, his wingers could be rotated through, especially once Kasperi Kapanen (lower body) and Josh Archibald (lower body) are cleared to return....

Penguins' Teddy Blueger: Records assist in loss
Blueger registered an assist in Wednesday's 5-4 overtime defeat to Detroit.
Blueger is stuck in a nine-game goal drought but has chipped in two helpers, 12 shots and nine hits over that stretch. The center's true value comes when shorthanded, as he is averaging 2:47 of ice time on a Penguins' penalty kill that is third-best in the league at 83.9 percent.... See More ... See Less
Penguins' Teddy Blueger: Scores first goal of 2022-23
Blueger provided a goal in Pittsburgh's 4-1 win versus the Blue Jackets on Tuesday.
Blueger's goal came at 16:33 of the third period. It was his first marker and fifth point in 11 contests this season. The 28-year-old entered Tuesday's game averaging 12:38 of ice time, and he's unlikely to make regular offensive contributions unless his role significantly expands.... See More ... See Less
Penguins' Teddy Blueger: Big game against Flyers
Blueger delivered a three-assist game Friday in a 4-1 win over the Flyers.
Blueger seemed to pick apart his cross-state rivals with deft feeds to Josh Archibald (one goal) and Ryan Poehling (two goals). He also had two shots, two hits and a blocked shot in 13:10 of ice time. The 28-year-old had just one assist in five games since his return from injured reserve at the mid-point of November, so this outburst was a welcome sight. Blueger delivered a career-best 28 points and 87 hits last season, which doesn't look like much on the surface. But there was a stretch last year when he delivered seven points in 10 games between mid-December and mid-January. Blueger may have the potential to deliver off the wire if he can carry forward some momentum from Friday.... See More ... See Less
Penguins' Teddy Blueger: Considered game-time call Tuesday
Blueger (upper body) will be a game-time decision against the Leafs on Tuesday, Pens Inside Scoop reports.
Blueger would be making his season debut if he got into Tuesday's tilt, having been sidelined for the opening 15 games of the season due to his upper-body issue. Whenever Blueger does return, he will almost certainly slot into his usual fourth-line center role, which would likely see Ryan Poehling relegated to a spot in the press box.... See More ... See Less
Penguins' Teddy Blueger: Removed from LTIR
Blueger (upper body) was activated from long-term injured reserve Tuesday, Seth Rorabaugh of TribLive.com reports.
Blueger was considered to be a game-time decision for Tuesday's contest against Toronto, but this move paves the way for his season debut. He notched 28 points and 87 hits in 65 games last year. Filip Hallander isn't listed on Pittsburgh's roster, per the NHL media site, which suggests he has been assigned to the AHL.... See More ... See Less
Penguins' Teddy Blueger: Upgraded to day-to-day
Blueger (upper body) is currently considered day-to-day, with coach Mike Sullivan telling reporters Monday, "Teddy's at the point where it's reactionary -- day to day. We'll take the advice of our medical staff on when he's able to return to play. He has been a full participant in practice; his status will remain the same," per Penguins' play-by-play announcer Josh Getzoff.
Considering Blueger served as a stand-in for the excused Evgeni Malkin (undisclosed) at Monday's practice, fantasy players probably shouldn't be expecting Blueger to suit up versus the Leafs on Tuesday. Whenever the 28-year-old Latvian is cleared to play, he should take his spot as the team's No. 4 center and figures to log plenty of penalty-kill minutes.... See More ... See Less
Penguins' Teddy Blueger: Won't play Saturday
Blueger (upper body) will not play Saturday against Montreal, Danny Shirey of DKPghSports reports.
Blueger has yet to suit up for the Penguins this season, after he was injured during training camp. He's getting close as he has been practicing with the Penguins, but he will not be able to go Saturday. Blueger had nine goals and 28 points in 65 games last season.... See More ... See Less
