Penguins' Marcus Pettersson: Picks up assist Tuesday

Pettersson registered an assist against the Avs on Tuesday. Pettersson was mired in a six-game pointless streak and had been a healthy scratch for the Penguins' previous two contests.

Penguins' Marcus Pettersson: Chips in with assist

In his last six games, Pettersson has distributed five assists. It's an unusually productive run for the Swede, who has 11 points, 31 shots on net, 56 hits and a plus-11 rating in 31 contests overall.
