Penguins Healthy Scratched Jake Guentzel Friday vs. Canucks


Oct 29, 2022

Jake Guentzel has been cleared for contact by the Pittsburgh Penguins, Dave Molinari of Pittsburgh Hockey Now reports.

Guentzel suffered an upper-body injury versus the Los Angeles Kings on Oct. 20. Guentzel has already missed four straight games, and although he was cleared to play last night, the Penguins elected to play it safe and sit their left winger in the first half of back to back games against the Vancouver Canucks.

The 28-year-old will likely be in the lineup when Pittsburgh plays the Seattle Kraken on Saturday.

The Penguins have gotten off to a solid start to the season, as they are 4-2-1 and sit in third place in the Metropolitan Division.

The Penguins are +186 (-1.5) on the puck line and -120 on the money line, with an over/under of 6.5, over (-102), and under (-122) versus the Kraken on Saturday. You can find the lines and props for this game and all others at FanDuel Sportsbook.
