Blake Comeau LW PIT 26 Days

Comeau scored his second goal in three games Saturday against the Sabres.

He now has three points in his last three games. The line of Pascal Dupuis, Evgeni Malkin and Comeau has performed well in the last week. While it's likely coach Mike Johnston will keep the trio together for the foreseeable future, Beau Bennett is expected back in another week or so and could eventually take Comeau's spot. In the meantime, the former Blue Jacket makes for a good fantasy play -- he's scored two goals and six points in the last six games.

Comeau practiced with Evgeni Malkin and Pascal Dupuis on Pittsburgh's second line Saturday morning.

Comeau has given the Pens a boost with his energy and hard work in recent games. Even though Comeau will eventually slide back to a third line role, he represents some sneaky short-term fantasy value. He contributed with a pair of assists Thursday against the Red Wings.

Comeau picked up a pair of assists in Thursday's overtime loss to the Red Wings. He also went plus-1 with two PIM and three hits.

A very active game for Comeau, who ended up skating 18:24 -- almost three minutes more than his previous season high -- and doubled his season point total. Comeau skated alongside Evgeni Malkin and Pascal Dupuis in this one, a situation that can only benefit him if it persists moving forward.

Comeau saw ice time with Evgeni Malkin and Brandon Sutter after Pascal Dupuis left Thursday's game due to injury.

Although there are no guarantees Comeau sticks on the second line, he could see a fantasy boost for as long as he skates with Malkin. The winger, who totaled four hits Thursday, has a little bit of offensive talent and could prove to be a sneaky short-term pickup. The team has yet to announce how much time Dupuis might miss, but if it's for more than a game or two then the team could decide to recall Jayson Megna, make a trade or even stick with Comeau.

Comeau notched the game-winning goal in Thursday's season-opening win over the Ducks.

Playing on the third line for the Penguins in his team debut, Comeau was able to cash in on one of his three shots on goal on the evening to give Pens the victory in a high-scoring affair. Comeau is expected to provide most of his contributions on the defensive end as a checker, but any offense he can provide along the way would obviously be welcomed by the Penguins.

The Pittsburgh Penguins have signed Blake Comeau to a one-year, $700,000 contract.

One of the Penguins main objectives going into the free agent period was to solidify their bottom two lines and Comeau certainly helps in that regard. The gritty forward had five goals and 16 points in 61 games in 2013-14.

There haven't been any contract talks between the Blue Jackets and Blake Comeau.

He can become an unrestricted free agent in July and it looks like he will be permitted to test the open market. Comeau appears to caught in a numbers game, where there simply aren't enough roster spots to go around. Columbus wants to give some of their prospects a shot at making the team and there are some players who are expected to be signed instead of him. Comeau posted 16 points and 197 hits in 61 games last season.

Columbus outhit Pittsburgh 65-32 in Game 3 on Monday.

Blake Comeau led the attack for the Blue Jackets with eight hits in the contest. It didn't end up turning the tide in this match as Pittsburgh still won 4-3, but Penguins coach Dan Bylsma acknowledged the disparity. "I don't want to say it's not a concern," Bylsma said. "They're a physical group and they come after you. But tonight I feel like we had the puck an awful lot in the offensive zone. If that's them coming after us and hitting us there, so be it."

Blake Comeau scored a goal in Columbus' 3-2 loss to Colorado.

It was Comeau's first goal since Dec. 19, 2013. Oddly enough, the Blue Jackets have lost all four games that he has scored in this season.

With no one among the Columbus Blue Jackets collecting a point, Blake Comeau's Sunday stood out in a 2-0 loss to the New York Islanders.

Comeau collected five PIM, three SOG and five hits in today's defeat. The Blue Jackets have a nice collection of deeper stats-fillers, but that was today's notable performance. Normally Comeau isn't really worth adding, though.
