      Marcus Petterson has been placed on the long-term injured reserve (retroactive to March 18th) with a lower-body injury.

      Petterson left the Penguins' previous game vs. the New York Rangers after just 12:41 TOI due to a lower-body injury and has been placed on the long-term injured reserve retroactive to March 18th. It is a big loss for the Penguins, as the 26-year-old has a goal, 23 assists, 95 SOG, 58 PIMs and a +4 plus/minus through 67 games played prior to the injury.

      Marcus Pettersson will draw back into the Penguins' lineup Monday vs. Anaheim (illness).

      Pettersson has missed the Penguins' previous two games due to an illness but is expected to draw back into the lineup Monday as they take on Anaheim. The 26-year-old stay-at-home defenseman had been solid prior to his injury, with 11 assists, 52 SOG, 21 PIMs and a +1 plus/minus through 40 games this season.

      The Penguins have signed Marcus Pettersson to a five-year extension worth $20.126 million ($4.025M AAV).

      Pettersson’s extension kicks in at the start of the 2020-21 campaign and carries him through 2024-25. The 23-year-old blueliner has had a strong year in Pittsburgh, recording 15 points (1G / 14A) in 50 games and taking on a huge role while the Penguins have dealt with long-term injuries to Brian Dumoulin and Justin Schultz—Pettersson has played an average of 19:22 TOI/gm on the season but is over 20 minutes per game since the middle of December. He has showcased the ability to be a reliable top-4 defenseman and will now be paid as such.

      The Penguins have re-signed Marcus Pettersson to a one-year contract worth $874,125.

      Pettersson was traded to the Penguins early in 2019 and he finished with 19 points (2G / 17A) in 57 games with his new team. He won’t play enough meaningful minutes to be fantasy relevant in 2020. However, Kris Letang and Justin Schultz both have durability concerns, so there is a scenario where Pettersson sees PP1 time, it just wouldn’t be a great scenario for the Penguins.

      The Penguins have acquired Marcus Pettersson from the Ducks for Daniel Sprong.

      Pettersson was a second round pick (No.38 overall) in 2014. The 6-foot-3, 177 lbs. defenseman has a projectable frame and a great first past but has struggled at times this season. Pettersson was able to carry a +1.9 CF% rel this season and should get a chance for regular playing time in Pittsburgh. Pettersson has 10 points (1G / 9A) in 49 career NHL games.
