Drafted 2010 by Pittsburgh, 20th overall









Oct. 12, 2014 - The winger is expected to remain on IR with a lower-body injury until mid-November. The Penguins will have to wait a little longer for Bennett to become a full-time, top-six scorer. Mark Allan



September 2014 - Injuries continue to plague forward Beau Bennett after suffering a lower-body injury during main camp that will sideline him six weeks mossing games into November. For a player who has battled to remain injury-free, this setback is not overly promising as he does need to show that he can stay in the lineup. Brendan Ross



June, 2014 - The 2013-14 season was supposed to be Bennett's breakout year. Instead, it was disappointing and injury-plagued. In all, Beau only played 36 games. He recently had surgery on his wrist, but the team is hopeful that it will be healed by the time training camp starts. When Bennett was healthy last season he showed glimpses of his impact-player future, but he couldn't stay healthy enough to break out offensively. His injuries are certainly worrying, but Beau has a very positive outlook and he'll be as hungry as ever to start next season with a bang. Seth Brisendine


October 2013 - Beau Bennett will be given more opportunities to succeed this season, possibly playing alongside Evgeni Malkin and James Neal. With PP time and more significant minutes, Bennett could tally around 35-40 points. Seth Brisendine


April 2013 - With the acquisition of Brenden Morrow and Jarome Iginla, Beau Bennett's strong NHL showing came to an end and the Penguins reassigned him to Wilkes-Barre/Scranton of the American Hockey League. In 19 regular season games for Pittsburgh, Bennett accumulated two goals and nine points. Brendan Ross


March 2013 - After the failed Eric Tangradi experiment, the Penguins tried Bennett on the Evgeni Malkin line - with incredible results. As of mid-March he was on a run of five points in six games and looks very much like an NHL player. Dan Bylsma is trying to bring him along slowly, but he's champing at the bit. He has thrust himself into the upper-echelon of fantasy prospects. - Dobber


February, 2012 – Bennett is a natural offensive talent currently playing at Denver University. Following a productive freshman season 25 points in 37 games, Bennett’s sophomore season has been derailed by wrist surgery. He had been off to a fine start prior to the injury, with 13 points in the Pioneers’ first 10 games. - Rich Dillon



Fantasy Outlook: B+


Bennett is ready now and has not looked out of place alongside Malkin, but can't seem to stay healthy enough to give us an extended look there.
