  • Blackhawks' Marcus Kruger: Healthy enough to play Thursday

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (2/1/17) Kruger (illness) will return for Thursday's road game against the Coyotes, Tracey Meyers of CSN Chicago reports.

    Kruger is apparently over the bug that kept him out of Tuesday's road trip opener in San Jose and he is projected to return to his place on Chicago's third line centering Dennis Rasmussen and Marian Hossa. While he is an important piece of Chicago's penalty kill, he isn't much of a scorer and so can be avoided in most fantasy formats.

    Blackhawks' Marcus Kruger: Out with bug Tuesday

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (1/31/17) Kruger will not play Tuesday night's game in San jose due to illness, Tracey Myers of CSN Chicago reports.

    Coach Joel Quenneville said that he would have to see how Kruger is feeling ahead of Thursday's game in Arizona before making any kind of declaration on his availability for that game. Either way, Kruger hasn't recorded an assist since Dec. 17 and hasn't netted a goal since Dec. 1, so his absence shouldn't affect the majority of fantasy owners.

    Blackhawks' Marcus Kruger: Scratched Tuesday night

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (1/24/17) Kruger was scratched from Tuesday night's lineup.

    Despite Kruger coming off injured reserve earlier in the day, coach Joel Quenneville was apparently not comfortable with slotting him into the lineup just yet and he will sit for an eleventh straight game. The 26-year-old is healthy, in theory, so expect to seem back in the lineup soon enough.

    Blackhawks' Marcus Kruger: Activated off injured reserve

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (1/24/17) The Blackhawks activated Kruger (upper body) off injured reserve Tuesday.

    Kruger's return to the Blackhawks' lineup hasn't technically been confirmed, but he'll likely slot back into a bottom-six role for Tuesday's game against Tampa Bay. The Swedish pivot's return to action will bolster Chicago's bottom-six forward group and penalty-killing unit, but his limited offensive upside keeps him from being a desirable option in most fantasy formats.

    Blackhawks' Marcus Kruger: Nearing return to ice

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (1/22/17) Kruger (upper body) is making progress but is not quite ready to return to action just yet, ruling him out for Sunday's game against the Canucks, CSN Chicago reports.

    In his own words, Kruger stated that he is "pretty close" to returning to game action, shedding some optimism that he'll finally be ready this week after missing the last 10 contests to this lingering injury. The 26-year-old Swede is an important cog in Chicago's penalty killing unit, but his 10 points on the season doesn't do much to move the fantasy needle.
