Description: The Penguins will play recently-claimed Zach Boychuk on a line with Evgeni Malkin and James Neal.
Insight: Boychuk will get a huge chance to put up fantasy-worthy numbers playing with a dynamic center like Malkin. If you have a roster spot available up front, taking a flier would be a solid gamble.

Description: The Penguins have claimed Zach Boychuk off waivers from the Carolina Panthers. SOURCE: Pittsburgh Post-Gazette
Insight: Boychuk was selected 14th overall by the Hurricanes in the 2008 NHL Draft but only has 18 points in 73 career games. Penguins coach Dan Bylsma said Boychuk could get work with Evgeni Malkin after he joins the team for practice Friday, but Pittsburgh's top six forward spots are pretty much locked up by Sidney Crosby, Evgeni Malkin, James Neal, Chris Kunitz, Tyler Kennedy and Pascal Dupuis.
