Malkin will not be available for Wednesday's clash with Vancouver after suffering an upper-body injury, Josh Yohe of The Athletic Pittsburgh reports.

EDGE Analysis

Fans and fantasy owners alike won't be overly surprised by this news, considering Malkin hasn't played a full 82-game season since 2008-09. While he is a point per game producer over his career, injuries have plagued the center, making him a risky fantasy option. The hulking Russian hasn't been ruled out against Boston yet, which means it could just be a minor knock.

Malkin recorded a goal, two assists, five shots and a plus-2 rating during Tuesday's 3-1 win over Arizona.

EDGE Analysis

While it had been eight games since Malkin's last multi-point showing, he did buoy his fantasy value with three goals and two helpers during that stretch. He's now up to seven goals, 18 points and 50 shots through 17 games for the campaign, and considering his go-to offensive role and scoring track record, the 31-year-old center should continue to be a go-to fantasy asset in all settings. After all, injuries are the only thing to slow Malkin down during his career.

Malkin had the winning goal on the power play in a 3-2 win over Edmonton on Wednesday.

EDGE Analysis

Malkin has now scored in three straight games, and strings like these are a welcome reward for his owners. Malkin owners don't need to be told to ride his hot hand; his certain presence in the lineup makes this a "sit back and enjoy" situation for as long as he keeps it going.

Malkin scored the lone Pittsburgh goal in a 7-1 loss to Winnipeg on Sunday.

EDGE Analysis

Malkin has now scored in back-to-back games to bring him up to 13 points (five goals) in 13 games on the season. If he remains healthy, there's no reason the talented Russian can't keep up the point-per-game pace throughout the year. Malkin is an offensive-producing machine and should be rolled out with confidence every night.

Malkin recorded a goal and an assist -- both on the power play -- during Friday's 4-3 win over Florida.

EDGE Analysis

No. 71 is up to three goals and 10 points through eight games, and this was also his third multi-point showing of the campaign. At this stage of Malkin's career, fantasy owners know what they're getting from the veteran. He's been a point-per-game producer in each of the past six seasons, but unfortunately, he hasn't played a full season since the 2008-09 campaign. When healthy, few can match the fantasy ceiling Malkin owns.

Malkin scored the game-winning goal and recorded three assists (one on the power play) during Tuesday's 5-4 overtime win against the Rangers. He also received a minor penalty for roughing.

EDGE Analysis

The big outing snapped a three-game point drought and upped Malkin to two goals and six assists for the season. He's locked in as an elite fantasy asset in all settings, but owners need to keep in mind that No. 71 hasn't matched his jersey number in games played since the 2011-12 campaign.

Malkin didn't register a point in a 3-2 victory on Wednesday at Washington.

EDGE Analysis

Going scoreless once is no reason for concern, as Malkin remains a point-per-game player. He should be fine moving forward as a top option.

Malkin garnered a pair of helpers in Wednesday's overtime defeat against the Blues.

EDGE Analysis

Malkin has been hampered by injuries over the previous five seasons -- having last logged 70-plus games during the 2011-12 campaign -- but when he is in the lineup, the Russian is a point-per-game player. While the injury woes are certainly a concern for owners, the 31-year-old's productivity puts him in the elite tier of fantasy centers.

Malkin has posted one power-play goal and an even-strength assist through two games this preseason.

EDGE Analysis

The Penguins will wrap up the exhibition slate Saturday afternoon for a home contest versus the Blue Jackets. It's a limited sample to be sure, but early indications point to Malkin being in fine form entering the 2017-18 campaign. Geno is projected to center the second line with Carl Hagelin and Phil Kessel at his sides. He will, of course, slot in on the top power-play unit as well.

Malkin scored his 10th goal of the playoffs and added an assist in Thursday's Game 5 win over the Predators.

EDGE Analysis

While Malkin is known as one of the league's best offensive players, he's also helping fantasy owners with a whopping 53 PIM this postseason. The feisty center only put up 18 points during the team's cup-winning run last season, but he's already piled on 28 points this time around. Malkin has struck for three goals in the Stanley Cup Final and is a huge reason the team is just one win away from capturing another cup. What a monster.
