      Guentzel (upper body) has been placed on Long-Term Injured Reserve and is expected to miss up to four weeks.

      Guentzel left Wednesday's contest vs. Florida late in the third period after 18:30 TOI due to an upper-body injury and will now miss up to four weeks after being placed on the Injured Reserve on Thursday. The 29-year-old was one of the Penguins' top trade pieces coming into the March deadline so this is a massive loss for the team. He is currently tied for the Penguins' lead in points with 52 (22G/30A) in 50 games played this season.

      Guentzel (upper body) is being evaluated after leaving Wednesday's game in the 3rd period.

      Guentzel left Wednesday's contest vs. Florida late in the third period after 18:30 TOI due to an upper-body injury and is being evaluated post-game. The 29-year-old is one of the Penguins' top trade pieces coming into the March deadline and will hope to have him back as they are in the middle of a back-to-back with a game on Thursday. He is currently tied for the team lead in points with 52 (22G/30A) in 50 games played this season.

      Jake Guentzel (ankle) will play in the Penguins season opener vs. Chicago.

      Guentzel was expected to miss most of the opening month of the season after undergoing off-season ankle surgery but has now been deemed fit to play on opening night. Lining up primarily alongside Sidney Crosby, Guentzel has been the picture of consistency over the last five seasons, tallying 333 points (159G / 174A) in 331 games. Expect Guentzel to continue his point-per-game pace lining up on the top line and top powerplay unit for the Penguins.

      Guentzel (ankle) will be a game-time decision for the Penguins season opener on Tuesday.

      Guentzel, who underwent off-season ankle surgery, continues to be a full participant in practice and could play in the season opener for the Penguins. Last season, he scored 73 points (36G / 37A) in 78 games and would be a major boost for a Penguins team that is coming off missing the playoffs for the first time in 17 years. If Guentzel is able to suit up, expect him to take his familiar role alongside Sidney Crosby on the top line and top powerplay unit.

      Jake Guentzel (ankle) was a full participant in Tuesday's practice.

      Guentzel was initially expected to miss the first month of the season, but then GM Kyle Dubas said he may only miss five games. Now, it looks like Guentzel may not be in danger of missing any games after being a full participant in Tuesday's practice. Guentzel had 36 goals and 37 assists (73 points) in 78 games a season ago.

      Jake Guentzel successfully underwent Ankle surgery on August 2nd and will be re-evalutated in 12-weeks.

      Guentzel had 36 goals, 37 assists, 244 SOG, 46 PIMs and a +2 plus/minus through 78 games with Pittsburgh in 2022-23 and will now miss the next three months and start of the season as he recovers from a successful Ankle surgery. The 28-year-old elite scoring left-winger is expected to be re-evaluated in 12 weeks which means he will miss at least the Penguins' first seven games. It is a massive loss for the Penguins early as Guentzel has scored 99 goals in the previous three seasons.

      Although he is being evaluated still, there is positive injury news for Jake Guentzel as he will travel with the Penguins to Columbus. He is considered day-today in the meantime. Guentzel has enjoyed an incredible start to his 2022-23 season, as he leads all NHLers with three GWG while collecting five points (3G/2A) in four games off of 17 SOG.
