Kruger (wrist) will return to the Blackhawks' lineup for Saturday's game against Calgary, Tracey Myers of CSN Chicago reports. Kruger has only tallied one assist in 33 games this season, and has very little to offer in terms of fantasy value. He will, however, bolster the Blackhawk's depth at forward, and strengthen the team's struggling penalty-killing units. The 2009 fifth-round pick will likely slot into a bottom-six role Saturday against the Flames.
Kruger (wrist) may be ready to return to action Saturday against the Flames, Tracey Myers of CSN Chicago reports. Kruger's impending return to the lineup will bolster Chicago's depth at forward and strengthen the team's penalty-killing units, but won't mean much to fantasy owners. Expect an update on the 2009 fifth-round pick's status ahead of Saturday evening's matchup with Calgary.
Kruger (wrist) is slated to go on Chicago's upcoming road trip, Tracey Myers of CSN Chicago reports. Per the report, Kruger will play at some point on the team's four-game road trip, which opens on March 26 in Calgary, but it has yet to be determined which game that will occur.
Kruger (wrist) returned to practice Sunday, Tracey Myers of CSN Chicago reports. Kruger remains a ways from being fit to return, but his presence at practice Sunday certainly provides some encouragement. Expect further updates when he begins closing in, but that's not expected to come during the 2015-16 regular season.
Kruger (wrist) signed a three-year contract extension with the Blackhawks on Tuesday. Kruger is currently on injured reserve and has not suited up for Chicago since mid-December. The center's contract extension is unlikely to be based off his contributions this year as he recorded a lone assist in 33 contests. In his previous two campaigns, the 25-year-old played 81 games in each and tallied a combined 15 goals and 30 helpers. If the Blackhawks make a deep playoff run, it is possible Kruger could still return.
