Cullen is still searching for his first point of the 2018-19 campaign.

EDGE Analysis

Cullen looked strong in the preseason, but has struggled to produce in the early part of the year. The fact that veteran has switched between the wing and his natural center position could certainly be a factor. While the team no doubt would like to get some offensive production out of the 41-year-old, the fact is he was probably brought in more for his leadership, penalty-killing and locker room contributions

Cullen scored on his only shot while playing 11:28 during a 5-1 preseason victory over the Sabres on Wednesday.

EDGE Analysis

The 41-year-old is back with the Penguins and is fitting right in this preseason, already scoring a few goals. He's only going to be useful in deeper fantasy leagues, but it wouldn't be a surprise if Cullen scored around 12 goals and 30 points in a fourth-line role. He will also win a ton of faceoffs.

Cullen registered two goals and an assist in Saturday's 7-3 victory over Columbus.

EDGE Analysis

While Cullen's leadership skills are probably his greatest contribution to the team, Cullen was stellar in his return to Pittsburgh. The 42-year-old paced the team with six shots and exploded for two goals and an assist in 14:32 of ice time.

Cullen penned a one-year, $650,000 contract with the Penguins on Sunday.

EDGE Analysis

Cullen returns to Pittsburgh following a one-year stint in Minnesota. The 40-year-old will likely fill in as a fourth-line center, while Riley Sheahan slides over to the wing. General manager Jim Rutherford tried to bring back the veteran at the trade deadline last season, as the team covets not only his contributions on the ice, but his locker room leadership.

Cullen (rest) is expected to be in the lineup Saturday against the Sharks, Sarah McLellan of the Star-Tribune reports.

EDGE Analysis

Cullen didn't play Thursday but that seemed to just be to give his legs a break. Given that he's 38 now, and the Wild are headed to the playoffs, that was a reasonable decision. The veteran American should see some ice time against San Jose, although don't be surprised if Minnesota limits his minutes just to be on the safe side.

Cullen will watch from the press box against the Kings on Thursday, Sarah McLellan of the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports.

EDGE Analysis

While coach Bruce Boudreau didn't provide specifics, it seems likely Cullen is simply getting a night off. The 38-year-old is currently third on the all-time games played list among active players (1444), so it certainly shouldn't come as a surprise the coaching staff wants to give him some extra rest ahead of the playoffs.

Cullen scored a goal and an assist with seven shots on goal in a 5-2 victory over the Canucks on Friday.

EDGE Analysis

It wasn't a great start to the season for Cullen, but he's heating up, scoring three goals in the last five games, and he was all over the ice Friday, posting seven shots in under 14 minutes of ice time. It was the first time this season he had multiple points more than five shots on net. Cullen has six goals and nine points in the last 15 games. The recent hot streak gives him 10 goals, which is just three off his mark from a season ago.

Cullen scored a goal and added an assist during Monday's 5-3 win over the Islanders.

EDGE Analysis

The 41-year-old veteran was certainly spry Monday. Cullen caught the Islanders attempting a poor defense change, and he snuck in all alone and buried his sixth goal of the campaign. Still, his fourth-line role significantly hinders his fantasy upside. This was just the third time through the past 18 games that Cullen has marked the scoresheet, after all.

Cullen (undisclosed) will take part in Saturday's game against the Ducks, Sarah McLellan of the Star Tribune reports.

EDGE Analysis

Cullen took a maintenance day Friday, which left his status for Saturday's contest as a game-time decision. It appears he will give it a go, looking to add to his 13 points (five goals, eight assists) through 55 contests this season.

Cullen will be a game-time decision for Saturday's matchup after missing practice Friday for maintenance purposes, Jessi Pierce of NHL.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

Cullen is still listed in the projected lineup for the contest and his absence was deemed a maintenance day, both which bode well for his chances of dressing. Warmups should provide a final confirmation, though Cullen's 13 points (five goals, eight assists) through 55 games this season leave him firmly off the fantasy radar in most formats.
