Nutivaara -- who is out with a lower-body injury -- may still be able to play this season, according to coach Andrew Brunette, David Dwork of Local 10 Miami reports. The fact that Nutivaara only "might" have a chance to get back on the ice this season means fantasy players should probably be expecting him out of action until April. Given his limited offensive upside -- he's tallied just 19 points in 67 games over the last two seasons -- Nutivaara probably isn't worth stashing regardless of format.
Nutivaara (undisclosed) was placed on injured reserve Thursday, per CapFriendly. Nutivaara has gotten just one appearance this season. The oft-injured Finn doesn't have a timeline to return.
Nutivaara (undisclosed) isn't expected to play Thursday against the Capitals, Nutivaara has only drawn into the lineup for one of Florida's first nine games of the season, so his absence will undoubtedly go unnoticed in most fantasy circles.

Nutivaara (undisclosed) produced an assist but only saw 7:01 of ice time in Friday's 3-2 overtime win over the Red Wings. Making his season debut, Nutivaara earned the primary helper on Eetu Luostarinen's first-period tally. The 27-year-old Nutivaara didn't see a shift after the second period, but there was no report of an injury during the game and no comment on his status afterward. The blueliner missed large chunks of last season due to injuries, and he's only reached 80 games played once in his five full seasons.
Nutivaara (undisclosed) was activated from injured reserve and will play Friday against Detroit, Jameson Olive of the Panthers' official site reports.

The 27-year-old tallied 10 assists and 35 hits in 30 games with Florida last season.
