Bryan Rust News
Pittsburgh Penguins right wing Bryan Rust (upper body) isn't with the squad as the team kicks off a four-game road trip on Tuesday in Vancouver. He suffered an upper-body injury in Sunday's contest against Philadelphia. Rust had an impressive three-point game against the Flyers and moved to third on the team's goals list with 18 markers. He's also had the same amount of assists in 42 games this season. Reilly Smith, who boasts 24 points (10 goals, 14 assists) through 49 appearances, will get the first crack at replacing Rust after practicing on the first line on Monday. Valtteri Puustinen will take over Rust's spot on the first power-play unit.
Pittsburgh Penguins right wing Bryan Rust is being evaluated for an upper-body injury following Sunday's 7-6 win over Philadelphia. Rust had an outstanding game with two goals and an assist but logged only 14:57 of action. The Penguins are just about to head out for a four-game road trip, and it's now unclear if Rust will travel with the team. If he's out, Rust would exit the lineup in the midst of a hot streak. The 31-year-old has notched seven goals and nine points in nine outings this month. He's tallied 36 points (18 goals, 18 assists) in 42 games for the season. Newly acquired Emil Bemstrom could land in a dream spot next to Sidney Crosby on the first line if Rust isn't available.
Pittsburgh Penguins right wing Bryan Rust (upper body) has been activated from long-term Injured Reserve and is set to rejoin the lineup Tuesday versus Washington. Rust has been unavailable for 10 games with an upper-body issue. He skated with Evgeni Malkin and Reilly Smith on Tuesday morning. The 31-year-old played well before getting injured, posting 10 goals and 10 assists across 22 games. Despite sitting out nearly a month of action, Rust is still tied for the fourth-most points among the Penguins forwards this season.
Pittsburgh Penguins winger Bryan Rust (upper body) is out week-to-week with an upper-body injury suffered against the Tampa Bay Lightning last Wednesday. This is a tough one for the Penguins and Rust, who have been struggling recently and are already shorthanded up front. It'll be difficult to replace Rust's production, as the winger has 20 points (10 goals, 10 assists) in 20 games this season. Drew O'Connor will likely stay in Rust's spot as a member of the first line, while Kris Letang will take over his spot on the top powerplay unit.
