News: Bennett finished with a goal and two assists in Pittsburgh's 4-0 win at Montreal on Tuesday night. Impact: Bennett had been without a point over his previous three games.(STATS, 4:55pm)
Tue. Nov 18, 2014
News: Bennett picked up his first three points of the season Tuesday, netting the game-winning goal and two assists against the Canadiens. Impact: The winger noted Monday he wasn't "mentally" past his recent knee injury, and a scoreless effort in his first three games backed the statement up. No longer. The three-point effort Tuesday was Bennett's first at the NHL level, as was his plus-3 rating. Coach Mike Johnston continues to skate Bennett with Brandon Sutter and Steve Downie, and his reluctance to move Bennett up to a top-two line paid off Tuesday.(RotoWire, )

News: Bennett, who has been held pointless in his first three games back from a knee injury, said he hasn't mentally gotten past his ailment, the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review reports. Impact: "When something happens to your lower body, it's always in the back of your head," Bennett said. "Mentally you have to get over it. Eventually I will." The winger tore up AHL play but hasn't seen results at the NHL level. He'll skate on Pittsburgh's third line Tuesday night in Montreal.(RotoWire, )

News: The Penguins eased Bennett back into the lineup Tuesday, with the winger totaling less than 10 minutes (9:35 TOI) in 11 shifts against the Rangers. Impact: He picked a bad night to return as New York outplayed the Penguins from the drop of the puck. Bennett moved around, skating on the team's fourth line initially and then seeing time with Evgeni Malkin. Pittsburgh is looking to jumpstart Malkin at even strength, making it possible Bennett again sees time with Malkin on Friday.(RotoWire, )

News: The Pittsburgh Penguins have recalled Bennett from Wilkes-Barre Scranton of the AHL. Impact: The 22-year-old Bennett will be with the team on Tuesday when the Penguins travel to New York to play the Rangers. Bennett missed the first month of the season after suffering a lower-leg injury during training camp. Bennett had five assists in two games with Wilkes-Barre/Scranton over the weekend. Bennett has struggled to stay healthy throughout his brief career and has six goals and 15 assists in 47 games. (STATS, 5:07pm)

News: Bennett will make his season debut for Pittsburgh on Tuesday. Impact: The team has Bennett slated to start on the fourth line, but at some point he'll likely move up to the second or third line. It's also possible he sees time on the Pens' second power-play as he works his way back into the league. Bennett tallied five assists and compiled a plus-4 rating in two games with AHL Wilkes-Barre prior to his recall.(RotoWire, )

News: Bennett (knee) was recalled from his conditioning assignment at AHL Wilkes-Barre/Scranton on Tuesday. Impact: Bennett looked impressive during his two-game stint in the minors, collecting five assists. The winger has been out all season while recovering from the knee injury sustained late in training camp. It doesn't sound like he'll be used in Tuesday's game against the Rangers, but he could make his return to action Friday against the Maple Leafs.(RotoWire, )

News: Bennett (knee), who collected five assists and compiled a plus-4 rating in two games over the weekend for AHL Wilkes-Barre, could be activated in the next couple days. Impact: "Beau had a great weekend, not just the points but just how he played overall," Pens coach Mike Johnston said Monday. "We're happy with his play and will have another discussion today to evaluate where he's at." The Penguins aren't in desperate need for offense as the NHL's top-scoring team, but there's a chance Bennett could help fantasy teams with second-unit power play time and a possible spot next to Evgeni Malkin.(RotoWire, )
