Sidney Crosby tied a career high with five assists, and Chris Kunitz posted his second hat trick of the season as the Penguins rocked the New York Islanders 6-1 on Sunday night for their fifth straight win.
Kunitz now has 10 goals and six assists in his last eight games. He posted a career high 61 points in 82 games last season and is on pace for 66 points in 48 games this season. As long as he is playing with Crosby he is an elite fantasy option.
The Pittsburgh Penguins have re-signed forward Chris Kunitz to a two-year contract extension, it was announced today by executive vice president and general manager Ray Shero.
Kunitz's contract is affordable and extends a solid scoring winger for a team heavy on centers (when healthy). Look for his usual 20-25 goals and for the veteran to miss a few games due to various injuries.
