Bennett, 21, collected three assists in four games with WBS during his most-recent AHL assignment. The 6-foot-2, 207-pound Bennett has played in 19 NHL games with Pittsburgh this season, notching nine points (2G-7A) and a plus-7 rating. After going scoreless in his first four NHL games, Bennett has collected nine points over his past 15 games.

Bennett will start on the Penguins 3rd line with Sutter and Kennedy but I wouldn't be surprised if he moves up to the second like alongside Malkin and Neal before this one is over. Matt Cooke is currently playing with them, and Bennett is a much better offensive option that Cooke. If he plays on the third line he is not a great fantasy option, however if he moves up with Malkin then his stock rises considerably.

Tangradi skated with Malkin and Neal yesterday, but the 21 year old Bennett was on that line today. Monitor this line going forward because whoever plays with Malkin and Neal will receive a large boost in fantasy value.
