2018-03-08 analysis It's been feast or famine for Guentzel lately -- he has four goals and 12 points in the last 13 games, but all of that production has been concentrated into five multi-point efforts, and he's failed to hit the scoresheet at all in the eight games in between. The 23-year-old will continue to have big games as long as he's skating alongside Sidney Crosby, but that volatility makes him a much better
2018-03-08 update Guentzel collected two assists while adding three hits and a plus-2 rating in Wednesday's 5-2 win over the Flyers.
2018-02-28 analysis The beneficiaries of Guentzel's assists fell on opposite ends of the skill spectrum, as his first helper led to a Sidney Crosby tally while his second was finished off by Matt Hunwick.

2018-02-23 analysis This was the winger's fourth multi-point showing through his past 10 games, and he has five goals and six assists during the stretch. However, it's also important to note that he missed the scoresheet entirely in five of those outings. Guentzel's game-to-game inconsistency makes him a high-risk, high-reward option in daily contests, but seasonal owners should probably just ride it out. Pittsburgh
2018-02-23 update Guentzel recorded a goal, two assists, five shots and a plus-3 rating during Friday's 6-1 rout of the Hurricanes.
2018-02-19 analysis This was the seventh multi-point outing from Guentzel, who tends to use the multipliers to compensate for a lack of game-to-game consistency. The feisty winger has now matched his 33-output from his rookie campaign in 2016-17, but it's taken him 21 more games to reach that mark this time around.
2018-02-19 update Guentzel lit the lamp to complement two assists in a 5-2 triumph over the Blue Jackets in Columbus on Sunday.
2018-02-13 analysis The second-year winger hasn't scored at the same pace as last season, as he now has just 18 goals and 30 points through 58 games.

It shouldn't surprise if Guentzel finished the campaign strong.

2018-01-24 analysis Guentzel was able to find some open ice right in front of netminder Cam Ward and linemate Phil Kessel put the puck right on the youngster's tape for a one-time goal. After a record-setting postseason run, many expected the 22-year-old Guentzel to continue that torrid pace into the 2017-18 campaign.

If the Penguins can get the winger back on track, they can quickly become the dominant offense they were during last season's Stanley Cup championship run.
2017-12-28 update Guentzel registered a goal against the Blue Jackets on Wednesday.
2017-12-12 analysis The helper snapped a two-game point drought, but the offensive dry spells have been few and far between again this year for the sophomore. Guentzel has collected 12 goals and 21 points through 32 games for the campaign, and he's locked into a top-six role with power-play time. It's definitely worth noting that his value and upside take a hit when Pittsburgh is fully healthy because Guentzel is usu

2017-11-23 analysis The good news is that Guentzel seems to have gotten things on track after a mediocre start to his season. He's now scored in three of his past five games and is up to eight goals on the year. If he can maintain this, his early expectations could prove reasonable in the end.
2017-11-23 update Guentzel was the only one to find the net in a 5-2 setback against Vancouver on Wednesday.
2017-11-11 analysis It's probably too early to dub this a sophomore slump from Guentzel, and his four goals, nine points and 40 shots through 18 games are respectable totals. However, after his impressive debut last year, fantasy owners are hoping to see an uptick in production moving forward. It's not out of the question to consider buying low on Guentzel, especially since he appears locked into a top-six role flank

2017-10-22 update Guentzel scored the Penguins' only goal in a 7-1 loss to the Lightning on Saturday.
2017-10-13 analysis Life alongside Sidney Crosby appears to be pretty good. The 25-year-old is operating at a point-per-game pace through five contests and has been credited with 10 shots on goal over his last two outings. After exploding for 13 goals in the 2017 postseason, it's clear Guentzel has a knack for putting the puck in the net. Now that he'll be playing his first full NHL season, Guentzel makes for a hot f
