Teddy Blueger News
Vancouver Canucks center Teddy Blueger (knee) is set to miss multiple games after the team downgraded him to week-to-week. The Latvian forward suffered a bruised knee in the team's preseason finale last week and wasn't in the lineup in the regular-season opener Wednesday versus Edmonton. He was considered a game-time decision for the contest, which made it look like Blueger isn't facing a long absence, but the news that he's now regarded as week-to-week makes it clear that the 29-year-old will be forced to sit out multiple games. Blueger helped the Vegas Golden Knights win the Stanley Cup last season following a midseason trade from Pittsburgh. He's been a solid fourth-line center who had a 52 percent success rate at the faceoff dot in 2022-23.
Pittsburgh Penguins center Teddy Blueger (jaw) will be a game-time decision on Tuesday against the visiting Florida Panthers. The Latvian forward has missed 16 games after fracturing his jaw in a 3-2 overtime win against the Winnipeg Jets on January 23 and requiring surgery. It would be ideal for the Penguins to have Blueger back in the lineup against a high-scoring Panthers team since he adds depth down the middle and logs a ton of minutes on the penalty kill.
Pittsburgh Penguins forward Teddy Blueger almost doubled his points tally for the season on Thursday, recording two goals and one assist in a 6-0 win over Montreal. He was a game-high plus-four for the contest and also led all skaters with five shots in 13:24 of ice time. The Latvian now has five goals and seven points for the campaign in 16 appearances. His fantasy value is non-existent now that the Penguins are near full health again, but it was a big night for the 27-year-old, as Blueger managed more points in one outing than in the previous 12 appearances combined.
Pittsburgh Penguins forward Teddy Blueger is set to return to the lineup for Sunday's clash with the Devils after missing 13 games with an upper-body injury. He will look to continue where he left off after posting four points in five games before getting hurt. Blueger is having a decent season with 15 points in 28 games, posting a plus-eight rating. He was on the fourth line at the morning skate but should move up in the lineup soon. The Penguins are slowly getting healthy again with Evgeni Malkin (lower body) also back skating this week.
