RW - PIT
Bjugstad helped Patric Hornqvist in the first period of the 4-2 win over Buffalo.
It's too soon to tell for fantasy on this forward at two points in 11 games (+3).
Bjugstad, who underwent surgery in November, participated fully in practice and will be a "game time" decision for Thursday's tout against the Canadiens.
Prior to his injury, the forward had one point in ten games played. Last season he recorded 26 points in 64 games with the Panthers and the Penguins.
Bjugstad had surgery to repair a core muscle injury and is expect to be out for eight weeks.
Although Bjugstad in particular is not a factor in fantasy, the Penguins have suffered a lot of injuries and the continual replacements are problematic.
Bjugstad's second period goal made it 3-2 Boston as the Penguins eventually lost 6-4 on Monday.
With only one point in six games Bjugstad is not a fantasy choice.
Nick Bjugstad scored a goal versus the Sharks Monday. His fifth goal of the season came on the power-play.
Bjugstad set a new career high with 49 points last season. Bjugstad is a 2010 1st round pick so there is some talent to back up the hope.
