Top Marcus Pettersson News

  • Penguins' Marcus Pettersson: Sets new career highs

    Pettersson recorded new personal bests in goals (four), assists (26) and games played (82) this season.

    It was the first time in Pettersson's seven-year NHL career that he played in every game and reached the 30-point threshold. The 27-year-old blueliner doesn't produce much offensively, but he could be a decent depth option in deep formats in 2024-25.

  • Penguins' Marcus Pettersson: Contributes helper

    Pettersson notched an assist, three blocked shots and two PIM in Saturday's 6-4 loss to the Bruins.

    Pettersson snapped a four-game slump with the helper. The 27-year-old has had some productive moments this season, but he's often just a physical presence in a top-four role. For the season, he's generated a career-high 29 points with 104 shots on net, 120 hits, 156 blocked shots, 44 PIM and a plus-27 rating through 80 contests.

    Pettersson scored his fourth goal of the season in Tuesday's 5-2 loss to the Devils.

    The 27-year-old blueliner got the Penguins on the board midway through the second period, snapping a 14-game goal drought in the process.

  • Penguins' Marcus Pettersson: Supplies pair of helpers

    Pettersson notched two assists, two shots on goal and a plus-4 rating in Thursday's 4-1 win over the Blackhawks.

    The pair of helpers were Pettersson's first points in five games since the All-Star break. He assisted on both of Sidney Crosby's goals in the game. Pettersson is at 21 points, 65 shots on net, 96 blocked shots, 57 hits, 28 PIM and a plus-21 rating through 51 outings this season. He's in a top-four role and on track to surpass his career high of 25 points from the 2018-19 campaign, but his fantasy appeal is limited to deeper formats.

  • Penguins' Marcus Pettersson: Scores goal, assist in loss

    Pettersson scored a goal on three shots and registered an assist in Thursday's 4-3 overtime loss to Vancouver.

    Pettersson was able to end a six-game pointless streak with his multi-point performance Thursday. The defenseman has been very streaky in terms of offensive production, producing points in just four of his last 13 games, but he generated at least two points in each of those outings for a combined 10 points. Pettersson isn't a factor on the power play but does benefit from pairing with Kris Letang at even strength.

  • Penguins' Marcus Pettersson: Career-best performance Wednesday

    Pettersson notched four assists with one blocked shot and a plus-5 rating in Wednesday's 7-0 win over the Islanders.

    Skating alongside Kris Letang has its perks. While Letang was setting an NHL record for a defenseman with a five-point second period, Pettersson nabbed three helpers of his own, before chipping in one more on Pittsburgh's final goal of the night in the third. The four points were a career high for the 27-year-old, but it was his third multi-point performance in the last four games. On the season, Pettersson has 14 points (all assists) in 33 games with 56 blocked shots, 39 hits, 37 shots on net, 20 PIM and a plus-17 rating.

  • Penguins' Marcus Pettersson: Nabs apple Thursday

    Pettersson recorded an assist against the Lightning on Thursday.

    Pettersson brought a seven-game pointless streak to a close but has yet to score a goal this season. Considering the Swedish blueliner has reached the 20-point threshold just twice in his NHL career, fantasy players should be expecting him to go through long scoring slumps regularly.

  • Penguins' Marcus Pettersson: Snaps dry spell with assist

    Pettersson posted an assist, two PIM and a plus-5 rating in Saturday's 10-2 win over the Sharks.

    Pettersson recorded an assist, two blocked shots and five PIM in Wednesday's 6-3 loss to the Red Wings.

This was Pettersson's second helper of the season, the first coming back on Opening Night. The 27-year-old defenseman already has 10 PIM to go with five shots on net, nine blocked shots, three hits and a plus-3 rating over four contests. He's worked with Erik Karlsson on the second pairing at even strength.

  • Penguins' Marcus Pettersson: Returning to action Thursday

    Pettersson (lower body) will be in the lineup against the Blue Jackets on Thursday, Penguins radio play-by-play announcer Josh Getzoff reports.

    Pettersson will suit up for the first time since March 18 versus the Rangers, a stretch of 12 games on the shelf for the blueliner. Unfortunately, the 26-year-old Swede's return is a little too late as the Penguins have already been eliminated from the playoffs. Despite playing in just 67 games this year, Pettersson has already tied his career best in assists (23), shots (95) and hits (130).

  • Penguins' Marcus Pettersson: Expected to be game-time call

    Pettersson (lower body) is on track to be a game-time decision for Thursday's regular-season finale versus the Blue Jackets, Wes Crosby of reports.

    Pettersson's status against Columbus may not be confirmed until the Penguins hit the ice for pregame warmups. The 26-year-old defender has missed the last 12 contests with a lower-body injury.

  • Penguins' Marcus Pettersson: Progressing in recovery

    Pettersson (lower body) traveled with the team and skated ahead of Tuesday's matchup with New Jersey. Coach Mike Sullivan told reporters, "The fact that all these guys are on the ice, traveling with us, it just suggests that they're that much closer to returning to the lineup," per Pens Inside Scoop.

    With both Pettersson, Jan Rutta (lower body) and Dmitry Kulikov (lower body) all still on the shelf, the Penguins have had to make do with Mark Friedman and Chad Ruhwedel as their third pairing. On the year, the 26-year-old Pettersson has already tied his career high in assists (23) and surpassed his personal best in shots (95). He's also just one point away from matching his career high of 25, which was set in 2018-19. Once cleared to play, Pettersson figures to offer decent top-half fantasy value given his offensive contributions.

  • Penguins' Marcus Pettersson: Lands on LTIR

    Pettersson (lower body) was designated for long-term injured reserve Monday retroactively to March 18.

    Pettersson is just the latest Penguins' defenseman to find himself on the shelf for an extended stretch. At this point, Pettersson will likely miss the remainder of the regular season, though it could certainly be longer considering the team has yet to provide a specific recovery timeline. Despite the early end to his regular season, Pettersson has already reached the 20-point threshold for the third time in his NHL career.

  • Penguins' Marcus Pettersson: Being evaluated for LBI

    Pettersson is undergoing evaluation for a lower-body injury he sustained in Saturday's game versus the Rangers, Taylor Haase of reports.

    Pettersson was in and out of the locker room a couple of times with the injury, but ultimately exited early in the third period. The defenseman joins a growing list of injuries for the Penguins on the blue line. If he can't play Monday versus the Senators, they may need to make a call-up from AHL Wilkes-Barre/Scranton to fill out their defense corps.

  • Penguins' Marcus Pettersson: Two helpers against Philly

    Pettersson notched two assists in Saturday's 5-1 win over the Flyers.

    The 26-year-old blueliner continues to be productive even without the benefit of power-play time. Pettersson has four multi-point performances in the last eight games, racking up a goal and nine points over that stretch, and he now sits two points short of tying the career-high 25 he set in 2018-19. His stay-at-home role for Pittsburgh makes it tough to expect that he'll keep up this run, but he's averaging a career-best 20:34 in TOI and has already set new personal bests in hits (123) and blocked shots (121), and when the Pens' offense is humming there is plenty of production to go around.

  • Penguins' Marcus Pettersson: Drought lingers on

    Pettersson failed to register a point against the Sharks on Tuesday, his ninth straight game in which he failed to get on the scoresheet.

    In addition to his pointless streak, Pettersson still has yet to find the back of the net this season in 51 contests. Despite the recent slump, the 26-year-old defenseman could still reach the 20-point mark for the first time since 2019-20 when he put up two goals and 20 assists.

If you're searching for offense from the blue line, the goalless Pettersson isn't the answer.
