Marino scored the first goal in his first game since Feb. 6. The Pens defeated Ottawa 7-3 on Tuesday.

Fantasy Impact: The rookie defenseman has 26 points in 52 games (+15) and is definitely worth a look in fantasy.

Per Coach Sullivan, the forward is "week-to-week." (Source: Penguins via Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: At 22 points in 64 games (-9) and with no points in the last eight games, the team had already reduced his usage to under ten minutes per game, so fantasy impact is minimal. However, the last thing the sinking Penguins need is another injury.
