Top Markus Nutivaara News

  • Panthers' Markus Nutivaara: Skating, still on LTIR

    Nutivaara (lower body) skated before practice recently but remains without a definite timeline to return, George Richards of Panthers Press Box reports.

    Nutivaara has played in just one contest this season. It's not like the Panthers need to rush him back -- they've done well without his services so far. It's unclear if he'll be able to return before the end of the regular season, though his long absence and lack of a guaranteed role if he returns makes him a non-factor in most fantasy formats.

  • Panthers' Markus Nutivaara: Dealing with lower-body issue

    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.

  • Panthers' Markus Nutivaara: Heads to IR

  • Panthers' Markus Nutivaara: Dealing with undisclosed issue

    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. Another update on the 27-year-old blueliner's status should surface once he's set to rejoin the lineup.

  • Panthers' Markus Nutivaara: Set for season debut

    Nutivaara (undisclosed) was activated from injured reserve and will play Friday against Detroit, Jameson Olive of the Panthers' official site reports.

    Nutivaara missed the first seven games of the year while stashed away on injured reserve. He'll return Friday in a bottom-pairing role next to Brandon Montour. The 27-year-old tallied 10 assists and 35 hits in 30 games with Florida last season.

  • Panthers' Markus Nutivaara: Earns assist in season debut

    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.

  • Panthers' Markus Nutivaara: Lands on injured reserve

    Nutivaara (undisclosed) was placed on injured reserve Wednesday, per CapFriendly.

    It's unclear what injury Nutivaara is dealing with, but this essentially rules him out for the first week of the season, assuming it's not a backdated transaction. With Nutivaara hurt, the newly acquired Olli Juolevi could get a shot to play in the Panthers' season opener versus the Penguins on Thursday.

  • Panthers' Markus Nutivaara: Ready to rock

    Nutivaara (undisclosed) is officially in the lineup for Wednesday's Game 6 against Tampa Bay, Steve Goldstein of Fox Sports Florida reports.

    Coach Joel Quenneville classified Nutivaara as "likely" to play Wednesday, and this new confirms that notion. Nutivaara missed Game 5 with the injury, and he's gone pointless while racking up 10 hits and a minus-4 rating through four games in the series. The 26-year-old will replace Keith Yandle in the lineup for Wednesday's game on the third defensive pair.

  • Panthers' Markus Nutivaara: Set to play despite injury

    Nutivaara was labeled "likely" for Wednesday's Game 6 against the Lightning by coach Joel Quenneville, Jameson Olive of the Panthers' official site reports.

    The bench boss didn't provide any specifics regarding the nature of Nutivaara's ailment but it seems it won't prevent him from returning to the lineup Wednesday. Prior to picking up his injury, the blueliner was stuck in an eight-game pointless streak on top of his season-long, 30-game goal drought. As such, his potential return to action is unlikely to impact the majority of fantasy players.

  • Panthers' Markus Nutivaara: Garners helper

    Nutivaara recorded an assist, two shots on goal and a pair of hits in Thursday's 4-3 overtime win over the Blackhawks.

    Nutivaara drew the secondary helper on Brandon Montour's third-period tally. The 26-year-old Nutivaara finished April with seven assists in 13 games. He's at 10 assists, 39 shots, 26 hits and a minus-1 rating through 26 contests overall, mainly as a bottom-four defenseman.

  • Panthers' Markus Nutivaara: Three points in last two games

    Nutivaara set up both Florida goals in a 3-2 overtime loss to Tampa Bay.

    Nutivaara has three points in his last two games, but just six -- all assists -- in 18 games this season. Still, any defender on a scoring roll has to be rostered. Nutivaara won't be a huge producer, but maybe you'll catch a couple more strong games .

  • Panthers' Markus Nutivaara: Chips in with rare assist

    Nutivaara produced an assist in Tuesday's 3-2 overtime win over the Stars.

    Nutivaara set up Aleksander Barkov's tally at 11:50 of the first period. The 26-year-old Nutivaara hadn't gotten on the scoresheet since Feb. 4, a span of 12 appearances. He's battled an upper-body injury in that stretch. The Finn has four assists, 16 shots on net and a minus-8 rating through 17 contests, so he's not much of an option in most fantasy formats.

    Nutivaara (upper body) logged 12:15 of ice time and had one block in Tuesday's 4-2 win over Blue Jackets.

  • Panthers' Markus Nutivaara: Joining team for road trip

    Nutivaara (upper body) will travel with the Panthers on their upcoming five-game road trip, Jameson Olive of the Panthers' official site reports.

    Nutivaara's been sidelined since mid-February with an upper-body issue, and although Florida has yet to release a specific timetable for his return, the fact he's making the trip suggests he should be ready to rock at some point during the Panthers' next five games. He's tallied three helpers in seven games this season.

  • Panthers' Markus Nutivaara: Moves to IR

    Nutivaara (upper body) was placed on injured reserve Thursday, per the NHL's official media site.

    This transaction is retroactive to Feb. 15, so Nutivaara can return at any point. It's unlikely that he'll play Thursday versus the Stars, but the 26-year-old could play in Saturday's matchup against the Hurricanes. Nutivaara has played seven games this year, posting three assists and nine hits.

  • Panthers' Markus Nutivaara: Sidelined with upper-body issue

    Nutivaara has been sidelined for the Panthers' last five games with an upper-body injury, but he's close to returning to the lineup, George Richards of Panthers Press Box reports.

    It initially seemed as though Nutivaara had simply been sitting as a healthy scratch, but it's now been revealed the 26-year-old blueliner has actually been sidelined for a little over a week with an upper-body issue. He won't be available for Tuesday's game versus Dallas, but Nutivaara should return to the lineup sometime soon.

  • Panthers' Markus Nutivaara: Helps out in Panthers debut

    Nutivaara (COVID-19 protocols) had an assist in 12:29 of ice time in Thursday's 3-2 shootout loss to Columbus.

    Nutivaara's ice time was limited in his Panthers debut, but he still managed to get on the scoresheet against his former team. Look for the Finn's responsibilities to increase as he shakes off the cobwebs and gets acclimated to playing with his new team after sitting out the first two weeks of the season.

  • Panthers' Markus Nutivaara: Expected to make Panthers debut

    Nutivaara (COVID-19 protocols) is expected to make his season debut Thursday against the Blue Jackets, David Dwork of Local 10 Miami reports.

    Nutivaara missed Florida's first three games of the campaign due to the NHL's COVID-19 protocols, but he's expected to skate on the Panthers' second pairing Thursday. The 26-year-old Finn notched nine points in 37 games with Columbus last campaign.
