Description: Penguins left winger Steve Downie left Tuesday's game versus the Wild after taking an elbow in the face from Minnesota's Ryan Suter.
Insight: Downie took the elbow in the second period and has yet to return to the bench. Suter did not receive a penalty on the play but is still likely to face league discipline for the hit. It was clearly illegal.

Description: Penguins left winger Steve Downie scored two goals in his return to the ice Friday.
Insight: Downie's presence was felt all over the ice in his first game back. He scored two third-period goals to hold off any Lightning comeback. The last goal was an empty-netter to seal the, 6-3, victory. Downie also played enforcer, moving into a faceoff circle to protect Sidney Crosby. That move eventually led to a penalty, and although it was a dumb penalty, fantasy owners don't mind since it game them two minutes of PIM. Pittsburgh killed the penalty anyway.
 
12/15/2014 9:41:00 PM
Description: Penguins left winger Steve Downie had a goal and an assist during Monday's victory against the Lightning.
Insight: Downie has played well with Pittsburgh, and now has five goals and 15 points through 30 games.
 
12/10/2014 10:13:00 AM
Description: Penguins left winger Steve Downie played on Pittsburgh's top-line with Sidney Crosby on Monday against the Rangers.
Insight: Downie had a goal and an assist in his first game with extensive minutes playing with Crosby, but Patric Hornqvist might return on Friday, which would send Downie back to the third or fourth line. Therfore, Downie is the definition of short-term value.
 
12/8/2014 10:01:00 PM
Description: Penguins left winger Steve Downie had a goal and an assist to help Pittsburgh force overtime against the New York Rangers on Monday.
Insight: Unfortunately for Pittsburgh, they lost in overtime, 4-3. Downie had an assist on the first goal of the game, and then scored the tying goal with under five minutes left in regulation. Even though they lost, Downie's efforts help Pittsburgh get a point and move into sole possession of first place.
 
11/6/2014 11:08:00 PM
Description: Penguins left winger Steve Downie recorded the Gordie Howe hat trick against the Jets.
Insight: Downie had a goal, assist and a fight, racking up 22 penalty minutes. He was also plus-three with two shots on goal. It was a surprisingly physical game between two out-of-conference teams, and Pittsburgh won in a shootout, 4-3.
 
10/1/2014 11:52:00 AM
Description: Penguins left winger Steve Downie made it clear that "there won't be any liberties on those players this year," according to the team's website.
Insight: "Those players" refer to Sidney Crosby and Evgeni Malkin. Downie's role will be an enforcer as he will protect the Penguins' stars. He should rack up the PIM and have a respectable amount of points.

3/23/2014 12:00:00 PM

Description: Flyers right wing Steve Downie is dealing with the flu and won't play Saturday, according to Sam Carchidi of the Philadelphia Inquirer. Jay Rosehill will replace him in the lineup.
Insight: Nineteen of Downie's 24 points came over his first 30 games of the season. He has put up just five points over his last 24 games, though he has continued to pile up the penalty minutes (102 PIM this season).
 
1/12/2014 12:28:00 PM
Description: Flyers right wing Steve Downie will be a healthy scratch Sunday, according to Frank Seravalli of the Philadelphia Daily News. "His intensity level is not where it needs to be shift to shift," coach Craig Berube said.
Insight: Downie hasn't produced a point in eight games since returning from an upper-body injury. He's stuck at three goals, 19 points, 77 PIM and 72 SOG in 39 games.
 
12/27/2013 2:27:00 PM
Description: Flyers right wing Steve Downie (upper body) skated Friday and appears to be ready to return to action, according to philly.com. He missed the last two games but could be back Saturday at Edmonton.
Insight: Downie has 19 points (three goals), 67 PIM, 61 SOG, five PPP and a +7 in 31 games, making him a solid fantasy option in all leagues. However, he's not expected to return to the third line with Sean Couturier and Matt Read right away, as Scott Hartnell currently is skating there.
 
12/21/2013 5:26:00 PM
Description: Flyers right wing Steve Downie (upper body) will miss 7-10 days, according to flyers.nhl.com.

12/4/2013 10:57:00 PM
Description: Flyers right wing Steve Downie continues to rack up the penalty minutes while adding some scoring as a bonus.
Insight: Downie had a goal, one assist, three SOG, four PIM and a +1 Wednesday at Detroit. That gives him two goals, 16 points, 67 PIM, 51 SOG and a +11 in 24 games this season.
 
11/21/2013 9:55:00 PM
Description: Flyers right wing Steve Downie had two assists Thursday against Buffalo.
Insight: Downie spends plenty of time in the penalty box -- he has 55 PIM in 17 games this season -- but he also has provided fantasy owners with one goal, 12 points, 30 SOG and a +6 this season.
 
11/12/2013 1:58:00 PM
Description: Flyers right wing Steve Downie (concussion) was activated from injured reserve for Tuesday's game against Ottawa.

11/2/2013 6:14:00 PM
Description: There have been conflicting reports about the health of newly-acquired Flyers right wing Steve Downie.
