Bryan Rust News
Pittsburgh Penguins right wing Bryan Rust registered two assists in Friday's 4-1 victory against the Senators. Jake Guentzel benefited from his work on both occasions. Rust has been very inconsistent with his performances this season, which is best summed up by the fact that he had only three points in November before scoring 13 points in December. His performances have been up and down this month as well, but with him back alongside Guentzel and Sidney Crosby, finding points shouldn't be a hard task for Rust. He boasts 10 goals and 29 points in 45 games for the season.
Pittsburgh Penguins forwards Bryan Rust and Evan Rodrigues made just small cameos in Tuesday's 5-4 shootout loss to the Islanders after they tried to play through an illness. Rust took just two shifts before calling it a night and Rodrigues settled for 6:27 of ice time before exiting in the middle of the first period. The Penguins were also without the suspended Evgeni Malkin, so they ended up doing a mightily impressive job by getting a point on the board. There's a rematch with the Islanders scheduled for Thursday, meaning Rust and Rodrigues won't have a lot of time to recover. Fantasy managers should keep a close eye on Pittsburgh's lineup news.
Pittsburgh Penguins forward Bryan Rust finished with a goal and an assist in Friday's 5-2 victory against the Golden Knights. Rust picked up his assist on defenseman Mike Matheson's goal in the first period, while he scored a goal of his own on a third period power-play to give the Penguins a two-goal advantage. Rust should be rostered across all fantasy formats as he has been very productive when healthy, with totals of 20 goals, 27 assists, 47 points and a plus-12 rating through 37 games this season.
Pittsburgh Penguins forward Bryan Rust has been named the NHL's third star for the month of January. The 29-year-old totaled 10 goals, 11 assists and 21 points through 11 games, including a monster start to the New Year with seven goals and 11 points through his first three games to become the seventh player in NHL history to begin a calendar year in that fashion. Rust produced seven multi-point games in the month and therefore should be started across all fantasy formats as he plays on the Penguins top line alongside left wing Jake Guentzel and center Sidney Crosby.
