  • Penguins' Michael Bunting: Two helpers in season finale

    Bunting recorded a pair of assists in Wednesday's 5-4 loss to the Islanders.

    Bunting had five multi-point efforts over the course of his 21-game stint in Pittsburgh. The winger thrived while playing in a second-line role for the Penguins, a spot he will likely continue to hold down heading into the 2024-25 campaign. The 28-year-old Ontario native fell one tally shy of reaching the 20-goal threshold, a mark he should be capable of getting back to with a full season on Evgeni Malkin's wing next year.

  • Penguins' Michael Bunting: Gets back to 20-goal mark

    Bunting scored twice and went minus-2 in Saturday's 6-4 loss to the Bruins.

    Bunting netted a power-play goal in the second period and scored late in the third, but it was too late to make a difference. The winger has four goals and five assists through seven outings in April. That surge has helped him get back to the 20-goal mark for the third time in four years. He's added 32 assists, 164 shots on net, 48 hits, 57 PIM and a minus-19 rating through 79 appearances between the Penguins and the Hurricanes.

  • Penguins' Michael Bunting: Three points including GWG

    Bunting scored the game-winning goal and added two assists in Saturday's 5-4 win over the Lightning.

    The 28-year-old winger completed his big night by tapping home a slick feed from Evgeni Malkin on Andrei Vasilevskiy's doorstep with a little over five minutes left in the third period. Bunting has racked up four goals and 12 points over the last 12 games, and he sits two tallies short of his third straight 20-goal campaign with five games left on the schedule for Pittsburgh.

  • Penguins' Michael Bunting: Scores in Thursday's win

    Bunting scored a goal on a team-high six shots in Thursday's 4-1 victory over Washington.

    Bunting extended Pittsburgh's lead to 3-0 in the second period, beating Charlie Lindgren with a slapshot off the rush midway through the frame. The 28-year-old Bunting now has three points (a goal and two assists) in his last two contests. He's up to 17 goals and 46 points through 75 games between the Penguins and Hurricanes this season.

  • Penguins' Michael Bunting: Will play Monday

    Bunting (illness) will be in the lineup to face the Rangers on Monday, Matt Vensel of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports.

    Bunting was forced to leave Saturday's matchup with the Blue Jackets due to an illness but appears to be back to 100 percent ahead of Monday's matchup. Since joining the Penguins at the trade deadline, the 28-year-old winger has slotted into a top-six role, racking up three goals and four assists, including a pair of power-play points, in 12 outings.

  • Penguins' Michael Bunting: Leaves game due to illness

    Bunting left Saturday's game versus the Blue Jackets due to an illness.

    Bunting played just 9:54 in the contest, posting a minus-1 rating and no other fantasy-relevant statistics. The winger should be considered day-to-day ahead of Monday's game versus the Rangers.

  • Penguins' Michael Bunting: Two-point effort Friday

    Bunting scored a goal and added an assist in Friday's 4-2 loss to the Stars.

    The 28-year-old winger opened the scoring early in the first period, but the game quickly slipped away from Pittsburgh afterward. Bunting has a four-game point streak, and in eight contests since getting traded to the Pens, he's produced three goals and six points.

  • Penguins' Michael Bunting: Headlines package to Pittsburgh

    Bunting, Ville Koivunen, Vasily Ponomarev, Cruz Lucius, a conditional 2024 first-round pick and a conditional 2024 fifth-round pick were traded from the Hurricanes to the Penguins on Thursday in exchange for Jake Guentzel and Ty Smith, Pierre LeBrun of The Athletic reports.

    Bunting was held out of Thursday's game versus the Flyers for trade-related reasons. The gritty winger will take a roster spot for the Penguins and could see a fairly big boost in production while playing in the top six and on the power play once he joins the team. The 28-year-old had 36 points over 60 outings with the Hurricanes prior to the trade.

  • Hurricanes' Michael Bunting: Sitting for trade reasons

    Bunting (not injury related) won't play Thursday against Montreal for trade-related reasons.

    Bunting is a new name in the trade mix. He's been solid this season with 36 points, including 16 on the power play, over 60 appearances. The Hurricanes waived both Brendan Lemieux and Tony DeAngelo on Thursday, but one of them will play versus the Canadiens since Bunting will be sitting out.

  • Hurricanes' Michael Bunting: Adds PP helper Saturday

    Bunting recorded a power-play assist on three shots in Saturday's 5-3 loss to the Jets.

    Given his current pace, Bunting has a chance to crack the 50-point mark for the second time in his career after just barely missing that mark last season (23G, 26A). He continues to skate primarily on the Canes' second line and remains a decent fantasy option in most standard formats.

  • Hurricanes' Michael Bunting: Lights lamp Monday

    Bunting scored a goal on seven shots in Monday's 6-3 win over the Blackhawks.

    Bunting opened the scoring midway through the first period. The winger has three tallies over his last six games, but he hasn't logged an assist since Jan. 25. He's bounced around the lineup at times, but Bunting is currently on the second line with time on the power play. For the season, he has 13 goals, 34 points, 98 shots on net, 47 PIM and a minus-13 rating over 54 appearances, production worthy of a look in most fantasy formats.

  • Hurricanes' Michael Bunting: Deposits insurance tally

    Bunting scored a goal on two shots and added two hits in Friday's 5-1 win over the Coyotes.

    Bunting tallied the last goal of the game at 4:37 of the third period. It was his second goal in the last four games, giving him 12 tallies and 33 points through 52 outings overall. Bunting has moved all around the Hurricanes' lineup, amounting to a middle-six winger with power-play time. He's produced 15 power-play points, 89 shots on net, 47 PIM and a minus-14 rating, offering decent all-around production for fantasy managers.

  • Hurricanes' Michael Bunting: Pots goal No. 10

    Bunting scored his 10th goal of the season in Sunday's 5-2 loss to the Wild.

    The 28-year-old winger used Zach Bogosian as a screen to snap a shot past Filip Gustavsson midway through the third period, tying the game at 2-2, but Minnesota dominated the rest of the way. Bunting has been productive over the last month-plus, delivering four goals and 13 points in the last 16 games while filling a top-six role and seeing consistent power-play time.

  • Hurricanes' Michael Bunting: Tallies versus former team

    Bunting scored a power-play goal on three shots in Saturday's 3-2 win over the Maple Leafs.

    This was Bunting's first game back in Toronto since he signed with Carolina in July. The 28-year-old winger made an early impact, scoring just 2:24 into the game for his 12th power-play point of the campaign. He's been good lately with two goals and six helpers over his last eight contests. Bunting has eight goals, 25 points, 57 shots on net and 37 PIM through 36 outings overall, putting him on pace for a campaign slightly better than his 49-point effort from 2022-23.

  • Hurricanes' Michael Bunting: Pops for three points Tuesday

    Bunting scored the game-winning goal on the power play and added two assists, one with the man advantage, in Tuesday's 6-3 win over the Golden Knights.

    The 28-year-old winger had a hand in three straight Carolina tallies as the team built a 5-1 lead, giving Bunting his first three-point performance of the season. He had a bumpy start to his first season with the Hurricanes, but over the last 15 contests Bunting has cranked out four goals and 13 points, with two of the tallies and three of the helpers coming on the power play.
