Rust (lower-body) will be a game-time decision on Wednesday.

Rust missed Monday’s game in Minnesota with a lower-body injury but could return to the lineup on Wednesday. Rust was back on the Penguins top line with Sidney Crosby and Jake Guentzel in the morning skate and will look to continue the torrid pace he was on before getting hurt—scoring eight goals with three assists (11 points) in his last nine games.

The Penguins have re-signed Bryan Rust to a four-year deal worth $14M ($3.5M AAV).

Rust has become a valuable middle-6 winger for the Penguins, scoring 13 goals with 25 assists (38 points) in 69 games this past season. Rust occasionally sees time on a line with Evgeni Malkin but is equally effective in a checking-line role. He grades out as the No.52 ranked RW in hockey according to Corsica Player Ratings.

Rust (arm) (upper-body) will not travel on the Penguins’ four-game Western Canada trip.

Rust has missed the last 11 games with an arm injury and will miss at least four games as he stays back in Pittsburgh while the team travels out west. He resumed skating last Friday, so monitor his status leading up to next Wednesday’s game in Philadelphia.

Rust (undisclosed) still yet to return to practice; unlikely to be ready for the start of the regular season.

Rust, 24, had a nice playoff run last year picking up nine points (6G / 3A) in 23 games on Evgeni Malkin’s wing. With Rust unlikely available for the start of the season, that leaves the door open for Scott Wilson to start the year with Malkin.
