  • Blackhawks' Marcus Kruger: Supposedly done deal with Vegas

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (6/10/17) Kruger is said to be a "done deal" to head to Vegas, Steven Albritton of KMBC reports.

    It needs to be said that neither team has explicitly confirmed this news, but the beginning of the expansion draft parity is definitely worth monitoring. Since Kruger would be eligible to be exposed by Chicago in the draft, the Golden Knights picking him up via trade would mean they could not pick another Hawk in the draft. If the deal is confirmed, it will be accompanied as Kruger going to Vegas as a package deal, most likely with Trevor van Riemsdyk or draft picks.

    Blackhawks' Marcus Kruger: Time running out in Chicago?

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (6/10/17) Kruger could be expendable with the emergence of Tanner Kero, the Chicago Tribune reports.

    The Blackhawks were lax on the penalty kill this season, ranking 24th in the league with a success rate of 77.7 percent. Kruger averaged 2:19 in that special teams situation, so we wouldn't be surprised if Chicago ends up finding a way to ditch the Swede's contract valued at $3.083 million for the next two seasons and handing the reins to Kero, who is much more affordable and adept in shorthanded situations himself. The situation could take care of itself if the Golden Knights expansion franchise takes the bait on Kruger.

    Blackhawks' Marcus Kruger: Heading to Worlds

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (4/24/17) Kruger will join Sweden at the 2017 IIHF World Championship, Mark Lazerus of the Chicago Sun-Times reports.

    Kruger will join the fifth-ranked Swedes, who are in a tough Group A alongside Russia, the United States and Slovakia. Considering the 26-year-old averaged a mere 14:01 of ice time during the regular season, it is not surprising to see him pot just five goals and 12 helpers in a bottom-six role. In the Hawks' brief postseason appearance, the center tallied a lone helper, seven shots on goal and two PIM. Given his limited offensive contributions, Kruger will probably only benefit owners in deeper fantasy formats.

    Blackhawks' Marcus Kruger: Nets two points

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (4/4/17) Kruger tallied a goal and an assist Tuesday against the Avalanche.

    It was Kruger's fifth of the season, and he finished the night with a plus-2 rating, two shots and three blocked shots. The only negative was his poor showing in the circle, where he won just four of 13 faceoffs; to be fair, though, the Avalanche rank No. 2 in the league in faceoff win percentage. This was his second goal in four games, so even though he's not known as a scorer, the bounces are definitely going his way of late.

    Blackhawks' Marcus Kruger: Marks goals column against Pens

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (3/30/17) Kruger scored his fourth goal of the season during Wednesday's win over Pittsburgh.

    The 26-year-old pivot has established himself as a solid defensive pivot with a 50.4 Corsi For percentage despite beginning just 28.6 percent of his five-on-five shifts in the offensive zone. However, Kruger shouldn't be confused with a serviceable fantasy asset. He has just four goals, 15 points and 77 shots through 65 games, after all.
