Kasperi Kapanen News
Pittsburgh Penguins right wing Kasperi Kapanen was placed on waivers on Friday. The 26-year-old has struggled to contribute offensively with only two goals scored over the past 16 games in January and February, along with a minus six rating in his third season with the Penguins. Kapanen has seen his ice time decrease as a result of his inconsistency this season, and he is not worth rostering across any fantasy format at the moment.
Pittsburgh Penguins right wing Kasperi Kapanen (lower body) will be welcomed back to the lineup Tuesday against Colorado. He is returning after missing five games with a lower-body problem, and Kapanen is projected to skate on the third line with Brock McGinn and Jeff Carter. The Finnish winger has struggled to stay productive this season, sitting on only 17 points through 35 games. He's been a healthy scratch multiple times and Kapanen could easily head back into the press box soon if he can't hit the ground running on Tuesday.
Pittsburgh Penguins right wing Kasperi Kapanen will miss Friday's matchup against Ottawa and is considered week-to-week with a lower-body injury. It's been a difficult season already for Kapanen and he has now received a new blow with the injury. The 26-year-old has tallied only six goals and 17 points in 35 games this season while averaging a measly 11:45 of ice time per game. Fellow struggler Danton Heinen will take Kapanen's spot in the lineup Friday.
Pittsburgh Penguins right wing Kasperi Kapanen celebrated his second career hat trick in Saturday's 6-2 victory over St. Louis. Two of his goals came on the power play, and Kapanen had already found the net twice before the first intermission. He had four shots in total in the game and registered two hits in 12:01 of ice time. Somebody seems to have pushed the right button on Kapanen this week because he has doubled his points tally for the season in just two games. The 26-year-old had a goal and an assist in Thursday's 4-3 win over Vegas. However, how long his hot form lasts is anyone's guess. Kapanen is just a few games removed from a lengthy stint in the press box.
