  • Penguins' Bryan Rust: Designated for IR

    Rust (upper body) was placed on injured reserve Thursday. Rust was previously deemed week-to-week, so his placement on IR shouldn't come as a surprise. The 31-year-old winger was rolling offensively when hurt, having racked up seven goals and two assists, including four power-play points, in his last nine outings. Without Rust in the lineup, Reilly Smith has been elevated to play on the first line with Sidney Crosby.

  • Penguins' Bryan Rust: Officially labeled week-to-week

    Rust (upper body) is considered week-to-week according to coach Mike Sullivan on Tuesday, Matt Vensel of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports. Rust was already expected to miss the Penguins' four-game road trip after not traveling with the team, so this latest update doesn't impact his short-term availability. Still, with Jake Guentzel (upper body) already out until mid-February, the loss of the 31-year-old Rust will only serve to further stretch the team's slim chances of making the postseason. In their stead, both Reilly Smith and Rickard Rakell have been elevated to first-line roles.

  • Penguins' Bryan Rust: Missing from road trip

    Rust (upper body) won't join the Penguins for the start of their four-game road trip, which begins Tuesday in Vancouver. Rust was injured in Sunday's wild 7-6 victory over the Flyers in which he racked up two goals (one on the power play) on six shots and an assist. Unless he links up with the team later in the trip, the 31-year-old winger should be expected to miss at least the next four games. Reilly Smith has moved into Rust's first-line spot while Valtteri Puustinen was elevated to the No. 1 power-play unit.

Rust tallied two goals -- including one on the man advantage -- and an assist with six shots on goal before exiting Sunday's contest.

The 31-year-old winger is up to 32 points (three on the power play), 118 shots on net and a plus-16 rating over 39 appearances. He should continue to see steady time on the top power-play unit while Jake Guentzel (upper body) is out.

The 31-year-old has added 116 shots on net, 36 hits, 30 blocked shots and a plus-17 rating. He'll likely be looked to for more offense while Jake Guentzel (upper body) is out for four weeks.

  • Penguins' Bryan Rust: Lights lamp in loss

    Rust found the back of the net in a 2-1 loss to Winnipeg on Saturday. With Connor Hellebuyck producing another stellar game between the pipes, the Penguins kept coming at the tender, but Rust was the only one who solved him. He skated across the vision of Hellebuyck and tipped an Erik Karlsson shot from the point that ended up top shelf. Rust didn't stop there, blasting seven shots on net to lead all skaters while adding a hit in 18:30 TOI. The 31-year old winger now has three goals and six assists with 40 shots on goal since the start of January. The Penguins will be home against the Panthers on Wednesday.

  • Penguins' Bryan Rust: First goal since return from injury

    Rust scored a goal and added an assist in a 3-2 overtime loss to Carolina on Saturday. Rust tied the game 2-2 from a sharp angle off the rebound of Erik Karlsson's shot while playing 6-on-5 in the last minute of the third period. It was Rust's first goal in six games (one goal, three assists) since his return from injury. He had been a strong complementary fantasy play prior to his absence, and he now has 11 goals and 13 assists across 28 appearances. Rust is on pace for his fifth consecutive 20-plus goal season, and he could challenge his previous personal best of 27 markers.

  • Penguins' Bryan Rust: Deemed week-to-week

    Rust (upper body) is considered week-to-week according to head coach Mike Sullivan on Monday.
