Observations:

March 2017 Rust returned after missing 20 games with an upper-body injury. Mark Allan

February 2017 Injuries to fellow forwards Evgeni Malkin (LBI, day to day), Conor Sheary (UBI, early to mid-March) and Carl Hagelin (concussion, day to day) resulted in Chris Kunitz replacing Sheary on Sidney Crosby's left side. Rust has been playing regularly with Crosby since replacing Patric Hornqvist recently. That has bumped up Rust's production, leaving him with 25 points in 49 games. Although the swift-skating Rust has some skill, his output is dependant on line placement and competition from other forwards. The good news is that he has a good chance of getting Crosby or Malkin as his center. Mark Allan 

November 2016 It took him seven games but Rust potted his first goal (and point) of the NHL season in a 5-1 win in Anaheim. Off Evgeni Malkin's line, Rust found himself with Nick Bonino, although Carl Hagelin and Scott Wilson took turns as their other linemate as coach Mike Sullivan experim
