Guentzel hurt his shoulder in late December, but with the season pushed back, was able to join Pittsburgh for the bubble in Toronto in August. He had a goal and two assists in Pittsburgh’s opening round loss vs. Montreal.

Guentzel was an All-Star this season, and scored 40-goals a year ago. He’s in the middle of a 5-year, $30M contract.
