2019 Fantasy Outlook
Blueger made his NHL debut on Jan. 30 versus the Lightning and never looked back. The left-handed Latvian signed a two-year, one-way contract with the Penguins in July, which all but guaranteed that he'll have a spot in the lineup on a nightly basis in 2019-20 as the team's new fourth-line center. In 28 appearances last season, the 24-year-old racked up six goals, four assists and 33 shots while averaging 11:03 of ice time per contest. Blueger is a quality faceoff man, and figures to be a critical component of Pittsburgh's penalty-killing unit this campaign. While he certainly won't be a fantasy stud, Blueger could make for a sneaky depth option in deeper formats this season. Read Past Outlooks

ANALYSIS
Blueger made his NHL debut last season in late January and quickly secured his spot in the lineup. The youngster logged 28 games for the Pens, in which he tallied six goals, four assists and 33 shots while averaging 11:03 of ice time. With a one-way deal in place, the Latvian center won't have to worry about spending time in the minors and should provide solid scoring depth in a fourth-line role.

Past Fantasy Outlooks
2013
2012
Blueger scored 19 points (6G, 13A) in 40 games for Minnesota State-Mankato in 2012-13. Right now his primary claim to fame is that he attended Shattuck-St. Mary's, the same prep school as Sidney Crosby. Blueger, a Latvian native, is still years away from making an impact with the Pens. The 2012 second-round draft pick will continue to develop his playmaking skills at the NCAA level. Fantasy owners in keeper leagues might want to take a chance on him, if only because of Pittsburgh's dearth of offensive prospects.
The Latvian native scored 24 goals and registered 64 assists while playing for Shattuck-St. Mary's in 2011-12. He's expected to attend Minnesota State. Blueger, a second-round pick in 2012, tallied a goal and two assists for Latvia's entry into the World Juniors. While Blueger attended the same school as Sidney Crosby, he's years away from making a possible impact in the NHL. One plus Blueger does have going for him, however, is the fact that Pittsburgh has a dearth of offensive prospects in its organization.
