  • Ruhwedel recorded three assists -- one on the power play -- during Wednesday's win over Winnipeg. Ruhwedel logged just 17:46 of ice time, and he entered Wednesday's tilt with only two goals and two helpers through 19 games with the Penguins, so he shouldn't be confused with a serviceable fantasy asset. Additionally, once the Pittsburgh blue line returns to health, Ruhwedel will return to the AHL. Don't overreact to Wednesday's offensive outburst.

  • Penguins' Chad Ruhwedel: Recalled from minors
    By RotoWire Staff

    Ruhwedel was called up from AHL Wilkes-Barre/Scranton on Monday. Ruhwedel's promotion comes as a result of Kris Letang (leg) being placed on injured reserve. In his earlier stint with the team this season, the 26-year-old Ruhwedel tallied a goal and an assist in five games, along with a plus-3 rating. The San Diego native will likely be competing for ice time with David Warsofsky and Steven Oleksy, which limits his fantasy value until he can secure a consistent spot in the game-day lineup.

  • Penguins' Chad Ruhwedel: Reassigned to AHL affiliate
    By RotoWire Staff

    The Penguins reassigned Ruhwedel (illness) to AHL Wilkes-Barre/Scranton reports. Ruhwedel missed Wednesday's game against the Capitals due to an illness, but is evidently now healthy enough to head back to the minors. The 26-year-old American has tallied two points in five games with the big club this campaign, and is nothing more than a depth option for the Penguins at this stage in his career.

  • Penguins' Chad Ruhwedel: Out Wednesday
    By RotoWire Staff

    Ruhwedel (illness) won't play Wednesday against the Capitals. Ruhwedel has only drawn into five games with the Penguins this season, and isn't a viable fantasy option in season-long formats. With Ruhwedel unavailable Wednesday, Steven Oleksy will skate on Pittsburgh's third pairing against the Capitals.

  • Penguins' Chad Ruhwedel: Under the weather
    By RotoWire Staff

    Ruhwedel missed practice Monday due to an illness. Ruhwedel has been an essential piece the the Pens success of late as he filled in admirably when Kris Letang and Trevor Daley were out with injuries. He remains an option in the game-day roster with Brian Dumoulin (jaw) still on injured reserve, but will have to compete with Steven Oleksy for ice time. Pittsburgh isn't back in action until Wednesday, which gives Ruhwedel time to get healthy.
