Feb. 17, 2017 Maatta is out six weeks after undergoing surgery on his left hand. The Penguins announced Maatta had surgery on Friday. He injured the hand in the second period of Thursday night's 4-3 overtime victory against the Winnipeg Jets. Maatta didn't play in the third period. Maatta has one goal and six assists in 54 games this season for Pittsburgh. The Penguins are tied with Columbus for second in the Metropolitan Division behind Washington. Pittsburgh and the Blue Jackets meet in Columbus on Friday night.
Dec. 27, 2016 Maatta will play Saturday after missing two games with the flu. He has two assists in 35 games this season.
May 1, 2016 Maatta has an upper-body injury. Maatta's status for Monday night is uncertain.
March 25, 2016 Maata is week to week because of a lower-body injury. Pittsburgh coach Mike Sullivan said the defenseman got hurt in a 3-0 loss to New Jersey on March 24.
Feb. 26, 2016 The Pittsburgh Penguins have locked down Maatta for the long haul, signing him to a six-year contract extension on Friday. The deal, which starts next season, has an average annual value of $4.083 million. The 21-year-old Maatta has six goals and 10 assists in 53 games this season for the Penguins. He leads Pittsburgh's defenseman and is second on the team in plus/minus differential at plus-18.
Dec. 10, 2015 Maata had two assists in a 4-2 victory in Colorado on Wednesday night. The Pittsburgh defenseman has four points (two goals, two assists) in his last three games, mathcing his total from his first 18.
Nov. 18, 2015 Maatta scored in his return Sunday. Maatta has been released from the hospital after suffering an upper-body injury in a win over Minnesota on Nov. 17.
Jan. 31, 2015 Maata will likely miss the rest of this season. The Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reported that the defenseman had his second shoulder surgery in eight months in January. He has also dealt with the mumps and a cancerous thyroid tumor.
Dec. 19, 2014 Pittsburgh Penguins defenseman Olli Maatta is the third member of the team diagnosed with mumps. The Penguins issued a statement Friday that Maatta tested positive for the virus and remains in isolation. Maatta is already out because of an upper body issue. The 20-year-old missed two weeks this season after surgery to remove a cancerous thyroid tumor.
Dec. 8, 2014 Maatta was placed on injured reserve as he deals with an undisclosed injury. Maata, who was also diagnosed with the mumps this season, could sit out until at least the final week of January.
Nov. 4, 2014 Maatta will play Tuesday night against Montreal, two weeks after undergoing surgery to remove a cancerous tumor from his thyroid. The 20-year-old Maatta underwent surgery earlier this month at the urging of doctors, who detected it during a preseason physical. Maatta returned to the ice a few days after the procedure, and coach Mike Johnston says Maatta could have come back over the weekend but the team wanted to give him a few extra days to get his legs back.
Oct. 27, 2014 Maatta will have thyroid surgery next week to remove a potentially cancerous tumor. The tumor was discovered during a preseason physical. Maatta underwent further tests before team doctors came to a diagnosis. He is scheduled to miss four weeks but is cleared to play until the surgery.
Oct. 10, 2014 Maatta had three assists Thursday. Though not a fantasy option for the moment, monitor Maatta's progress.
May 22, 2014 Maatta had shoulder surgery Thursday and will be sidelined at least four months. The 19-year-old played 78 games for the Penguins this season, finishing with nine goals and 20 assists. He added four assists in Pittsburgh's run to the Eastern Conference semifinals.
Jan. 24, 2014 Maatta scored the go-ahead goal early in the second period as the Pittsburgh Penguins held on for a wild 6-4 win over the New York Islanders on Thursday night. The Penguins defenseman also had an assist, and he has five points (two goals, three assists) in his last four games.
Dec. 20, 2013 Maatta had two points, which included a goal on a third-period penalty shot, as the Penguins won their sixth straight game. The 19-year-old Maatta, who made the team out of training camp, scored his third career goal on his first career penalty shot. He is the second defenseman in team history to score on a penalty shot.
Oct. 24, 2013 The Pittsburgh Penguins will keep rookie defenseman Olli Maatta. The Penguins could have sent the 19-year-old Maatta back to his junior team, a move that would have pushed back the clock on Maatta's NHL service time. Instead, general manager Ray Shero decided to keep Maatta in Pittsburgh, calling it the best decision for Maatta and the Penguins. Maatta has been solid during Pittsburgh's 7-2 start. He has one goal and two assists in nine games and impressed his teammates with his skating and decision-making skills.
Oct. 9, 2013 Maatta finished with a pair of assists in Tuesday's 5-2 win over Carolina. The rookie defenseman, the 22nd overall pick in the 2012 NHL Draft, produced the first two points of his career.

2018-05-10 analysis In addition to his point tally, Maatta set career highs for shots (164), power-play points (eight) and hits (131). Physicality had previously been one aspect missing from the Finn's game, but it appears he decided to take a different approach this season. The defenseman added a mere two helpers in his 12 postseason appearances, despite averaging 19:48 of ice time (including 1:23 with the man advan
2018-05-10 update Maatta played all 82 games of the regular season and matched his career high in points (29).
2018-04-23 analysis Maatta fired a shot from the point that was tipped in by Jake Guentzel to tie the game up at four goals apiece. The 23-year-old defender has a pair of points in six postseason contests. The Finn is bogged down in a 23-game goal drought -- dating back to March 1 -- which is an indication of the fact he is known more for his defensive prowess than his scoring touch.
2018-04-23 update Maatta snagged a helper in Sunday's 8-5 defeat of the Flyers.
2018-04-19 analysis This was the first point of the conference quarterfinals for Maatta, who is averaging 1:42 of ice time on the power play. He may not come to mind as a viable fantasy option in playoff pools, but the Finn will surprise offensively every so often.
2018-04-19 update Maatta added an assist to the Game 4 win over the Flyers on Wednesday.
2018-03-22 analysis Maatta saw a significant drop in ice time Wednesday, as he logged just 16:37 -- over two minutes below his season average. With the Pens relying heavily on their No. 1 power-play unit, the defenseman has averaged a mere 25 seconds of ice time with the man advantage over his last three outings. Down the stretch, the Finn should be closer to 20 minutes per game, especially in the playoffs where Pitt
2018-03-22 update Maatta picked up the secondary assist on Derick Brassard's game-winning goal against the Canadiens on Wednesday.
2018-03-02 analysis Maatta's up to seven goals on the season. Four of those have come in the past six games following a 25-game drought.
2018-03-02 update Maatta scored twice in Thursday's 8-4 loss to Boston.
2018-02-18 analysis Maatta now has points in each of his last three games, which is his best streak since October, when he bagged assists in six straight contests. The Fin also has been filling in the statsheet by other means lately too, as throughout his last 10 games he's thrown 16 shots on goal and logged 23 hits. The fact that Maatta skates on the second power-play unit, and is only averaging 1:08 of time on the
2018-02-18 update Maatta had an assist during a 5-2 victory over Columbus on Sunday.
2018-01-24 analysis Despite a 16-game goal drought, Maatta is continuing to put pucks to the net, as he registered 32 shots during this stretch. In addition, the defenseman is finding other ways to contribute, including four assists (two on the power play), 31 hits and 17 blocks.
2018-01-24 update Maatta failed to register a point against the Hurricanes on Tuesday, but did tally four shots and five hits.
2018-01-01 analysis With Kris Letang and Justin Schultz both on injured reserve with lower-body injuries, Maatta quarterbacked the No. 1 power-play unit again Sunday. His fantasy value receives a notable boost with Letang and Schultz out, but both have been practicing, so Maatta's relevancy outside of deeper settings is likely fleeting.
2018-01-01 update Maatta recorded a power-play assist during Sunday's 4-1 loss to Detroit.
2017-12-17 analysis The 23-year-old defenseman now has 14 points on the year, with all three of his goals coming at even strength. Maatta is on pace for career highs in points, assists, shots, and power-play time, making him serviceable in most season-long leagues and daily formats.
2017-12-17 update Maatta scored a goal on three shots and added two blocks in Saturday's 4-2 win over the Stars.
2017-11-20 analysis Considering Maatta was able to play through his illness in order to suit up against the Blackhawks on Saturday -- logging 18:10 of ice time -- fantasy owners shouldn't have to worry about his availability against the Canucks on Wednesday. The defenseman has notched assists in two of his previous three outings, which brought to an end a five-game pointless streak.
2017-11-20 update Maatta was not at practice Monday as he continues to fight off the bug that nearly sidelined him Saturday.
2017-11-18 analysis This explains why the defenseman didn't show up for morning skate. It seems like the Penguins always have a tough time solidifying the defensive corps, but the silver lining for the two-time defending champs is that they'll welcome Matt Hunwick (concussion) back into the fold after he'd missed the past 15 games. The young defenseman was forced to miss morning skate due to the illness, but apparently his health improved enough throughout the day for him to play. Maatta has 11 points this season, including an assist in each of the past two contests.
2017-11-18 update Maatta is dealing with an illness and consequently will be a game-time decision for Saturday's home tilt against the Blackhawks. Maatta (illness) has been included in the lineup for Saturday's matchup with Chicago.

2017-11-09 analysis Maatta was perhaps one of the hottest commodities in fantasy leagues after kicking off the season with a flourish. Despite having come back down to Earth, the blueliner remains on pace for the most productive year of his career, assuming he can rediscover his offensive touch sooner rather than later.
2017-11-09 update Maatta has followed up his early October six-game point streak with just one helper in his previous nine contests.
2017-10-18 analysis The first-period helper brought Maatta's scoring streak to a career-high five games. During the streak, the 23-year-old blueliner has recorded a goal and five assists, with two coming on a man advantage. With seven points in as many games, Maatta has a very good chance to surpass his career-high of 29 points.
2017-10-18 update Maatta picked up an assist during Tuesday's 5-4 win against the Rangers.
2017-10-07 analysis Maata already has three points, including two goals in three games. He is working to rebound from a forgettable 2016-17 campaign, and he looks great so far. How do you spell s-l-e-e-p-e-r?
2017-10-07 update Maata scored a goal and added an assist in Saturday's 4-0 win over the Predators.
