Top Pierre-Olivier Joseph News

  • Penguins' Pierre-Olivier Joseph: Available to play

    Joseph (illness) participated in the morning skate Tuesday, but he isn't expected to be in the lineup against Washington, per Michelle Crechiolo of the Penguins' official site.

    Joseph, who sat out two games due to an illness, has one assist, nine shots on goal, three blocked shots and five hits in eight appearances this season. John Ludvig is projected to remain in the lineup Tuesday against the Capitals.

  • Penguins' Pierre-Olivier Joseph: Not playing Saturday

    Joseph (illness) won't play Saturday versus the Blues, Seth Rorabaugh of Tribune-Review Sports reports.

    Joseph has been a healthy scratch for the last four games, so his absence won't make waves in fantasy. The 24-year-old should be considered questionable for Sunday's game versus the Islanders. John Ludvig continues to play on the third pairing when Joseph is excluded from the lineup.

  • Penguins' Pierre-Olivier Joseph: Returning against Arizona

    Joseph (lower body) will be in the lineup versus the Coyotes on Tuesday, Penguins play-by-play announcer Josh Getzoff reports.

    Joseph will be in the lineup for the first time since Nov. 4 versus the Sharks, a stretch of 16 games on the shelf due to his lower-body injury. The blueliner has managed just one assist, six shots and one hit in five appearances this season. With Joseph returning, Ryan Shea is expected to be relegated to the press box as a healthy scratch.

  • Penguins' Pierre-Olivier Joseph: Back from conditioning loan

    Joseph (lower body) was recalled from his conditioning loan with AHL Wilkes-Barre/Scranton on Sunday.

    Joseph contributed one assist in two contests during his minor-league stint. He has one helper, six shots on goal and three blocked shots in five NHL outings this season.

  • Penguins' Pierre-Olivier Joseph: On conditioning assignment

    Joseph (lower body) was reassigned to AHL Wilkes-Barre/Scranton on Tuesday for a conditioning stint.

    Joseph has played in just one game -- Nov. 4 against the Sharks -- over the Pens' last 20 contests due to his lower-body problem. The Baby Pens will be in action both Friday and Saturday, which pushes Joseph's potential return date for Pittsburgh back to Dec. 12 versus Arizona at the earliest. Even once given the all-clear, Joseph is far from a lock for a spot in the Penguins' lineup and could serve as a healthy scratch periodically.

  • Penguins' Pierre-Olivier Joseph: Participates in optional skate

    Joseph (lower body) was on the ice for Monday's optional skate.

    Joseph shouldn't be expected to suit up versus the Flyers on Monday but appears to be trending in the right direction. The fact that the 24-year-old blueliner is with the Pens for their three-game road trip is certainly an indication that he could be cleared to play soon. In the meantime, Ryan Shea and John Ludvig figure to hold down third-pairing roles.

  • Penguins' Pierre-Olivier Joseph: Out indefinitely

    Joseph (lower body) has no clear recovery timeline and will be sidelined indefinitely, Seth Rorabaugh of TribLive.com reports Tuesday.

    Joseph was already on injured reserve but this latest news certainly doesn't bode well for his return in the near term. With the young blueliner on the shelf and Chad Ruhwedel week-to-week with a lower-body problem, the Penguins will no doubt be hoping that John Ludvig can clear concussion protocol ahead of Wednesday's tilt against the Rangers.

  • Penguins' Pierre-Olivier Joseph: Added to IR

    Joseph (lower body) was put on the injured reserve list Saturday, per the NHL media site.

    Joseph hasn't played since Nov. 4, so this move might be retroactive to that date. If that's the case, Joseph can be activated at any time, but he's already been ruled out for Saturday's game versus Carolina. He has an assist in five contests this year.

  • Penguins' Pierre-Olivier Joseph: Dealing with lower-body injury

    Joseph won't be available for Saturday's contest against Carolina due to a nagging lower-body injury, Michelle Crechiolo of the Penguins' official site reports.

    Joseph has apparently being dealing with the issue for the last little while, which could explain his absence from the lineup for the past five games. Joseph has one assist, three blocked shots and one hit in five appearances this season.

  • Penguins' Pierre-Olivier Joseph: Snags first helper

    Joseph notched an assist in Saturday's 10-2 win over the Sharks.

    Joseph had been a healthy scratch for five straight games before drawing back in Saturday. He got his first point of the campaign with an assist on a Jake Guentzel goal in the second period. Joseph has added five shots on net, three blocked shots and a minus-2 rating through five appearances. He'll likely continue to compete for a spot on the third pairing throughout the season.

  • Penguins' Pierre-Olivier Joseph: Back in action Friday

    Joseph (lower body) will play Friday versus the Sabres.

    Joseph was hampered by a lower-body injury earlier in the week. The 24-year-old defenseman established himself with 21 points in 75 contests for the Penguins last year, and he should begin 2023-24 in a third-pairing role.

  • Penguins' Pierre-Olivier Joseph: Practicing in regular jersey

    Per Seth Rorabaugh of TribLive.com, Joseph (lower body) is practicing for the second day in a row Thursday.

    Joseph missed practice Tuesday before returning to the ice Wednesday and Thursday. He appeared to be a full participant during Thursday's session. The 24-year-old blueliner had five goals, 16 assists and 88 hits over 75 games in 2022-23.

  • Penguins' Pierre-Olivier Joseph: Day-to-day with lower-body injury

    Joseph (lower body) didn't practice Tuesday and is considered day-to-day, Michelle Crechiolo of the Penguins' official site reports.

    Joseph may have been banged up in Monday's 3-0 preseason loss to Ottawa. He accounted for five goals, 21 points and 88 hits in 75 games last season.

  • Penguins' Pierre-Olivier Joseph: Records assist against Devils

    Joseph earned an assist in Tuesday's 4-1 defeat to New Jersey.

    Joseph was able to end a five-game pointless streak with his helper, though he remains mired in a six-game goalless streak. The 23-year-old blueliner has sent new personal best this year in games played (71), goals (five) and assists (16). The Quebec native figures to be a mainstay on the Penguins' blue line heading into the postseason and beyond.

  • Penguins' Pierre-Olivier Joseph: Scores in loss

    Joseph scored a goal on two shots in Thursday's 3-2 loss to Dallas.

    Joseph cut the Stars' lead to 3-2 in the third period, beating Jake Oettinger with a wrist shot to traffic. The goal was Joseph's first since Feb. 10, though he now has points in his last three contests. The 23-year-old defenseman has seen his role increase lately with a rash of injuries on Pittsburgh's blueline, and Joseph has taken advantage of the opportunity so far. He's up to five goals and 15 assists with a plus-9 rating through 65 games this season.

  • Penguins' Pierre-Olivier Joseph: Helpers in consecutive contests

    Joseph notched an assist in Wednesday's 5-2 win over the Avalanche.

    With the Penguins missing four regulars on the blue line, Joseph has ascended to a top-pairing role with time on the second power-play unit. It's paying off, as he has an assist in each of the last two contests after going 12 games without a point. The 23-year-old has four goals, 15 helpers, 95 shots on net, 79 hits, 32 blocked shots, 38 PIM and a plus-8 rating through 64 outings. His role will likely shrink a bit once Jeff Petry (upper body), but Joseph should maintain top-four minutes for a while.

  • Penguins' Pierre-Olivier Joseph: Grabs assist in defeat

    Joseph registered an assist versus the Senators on Monday.

    Joseph ended a 12-game pointless streak with his helper against Ottawa. Since serving as a healthy scratch for three contests in mid-March, the 23-year-old blueliner has been putting plenty of pucks on net with 11 shots over his last four outings. Despite shooting more, the Quebec native hasn't found the back of the net since his two-goal performance versus Anaheim on Feb. 10.

  • Penguins' Pierre-Olivier Joseph: Two helpers against Isles

    Joseph notched two assists in Friday's 5-4 loss to the Islanders.

    The 23-year-old blueliner has two multi-point performances in the last four games, racking up two goals and five points in those contests, but those are his only points since Jan. 8. With Kris Letang and Jeff Petry both back in the lineup, Joseph's fantasy value is limited, but the 2017 first-round pick is demonstrating he might have some upside in Pittsburgh once the two veterans are out of the picture.

  • Penguins' Pierre-Olivier Joseph: Erupts for three points

    Joseph scored twice on four shots, added a power-play assist and went plus-3 in Friday's 6-3 win over the Ducks.

    Joseph doubled his goal total for the season with a tally in each of the first two periods. He also set up Kasperi Kapanen's goal. Prior to Friday, Joseph was mired in an 11-game point drought, so this was a highly unexpected burst of offense. The 23-year-old is up to four goals, 11 helpers, 70 shots on net, 62 hits, 28 PIM and a plus-10 rating through 47 appearances.
