  • Blackhawks' Marcus Kruger: Placed on IR

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (11/13/18) The Blackhawks placed Kruger (leg) on injured reserve retroactive to Nov. 9 on Tuesday.

    The Blackhawks have yet to release any details regarding a potential timetable for Kruger's return, but he'll miss Wednesday's matchup with St. Louis at a minimum now that he's on IR. The veteran pivot is primarily deployed as a penalty-killing specialist by Chicago, so his absence shouldn't impact many fantasy lineups.

    Blackhawks' Marcus Kruger: Will not play Monday

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (11/12/18) Kruger (leg) will not be in the lineup Monday in Carolina.

    Chicago still has not put a timetable on Kruger's return from a leg injury suffered last Thursday against the Hurricanes. He'll sit out Monday, with his status beyond that still very much up in the air.

    Blackhawks' Marcus Kruger: Not traveling with team

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (11/9/18) Kruger (leg) won't travel to Philadelphia for Saturday's game against the Flyers.

    The Blackhawks have yet to release any details regarding a potential timetable for Kruger's return to action, but the fact that he's not travelling with the team for Saturday's contest suggests he'll almost certainly miss Monday's game in Carolina as well. Luke Johnson will likely fill in on the fourth line until Kruger is cleared to play.

    Blackhawks' Marcus Kruger: Exits due to injury

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (11/8/18) Kruger (leg) will not return to Thursday's game against the Hurricanes.

    Kruger suffered the injury when he was tripped by Carolina's Clark Bishop while driving to the net in the second period of Thursday's contest. He was able to hobble off the ice under his own power, but he was clearly in pain while doing so. Another update on the penalty-killing specialist's condition should be released ahead of Saturday's matchup with Philadelphia.

    Blackhawks' Marcus Kruger: Struggling to find ice time

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (10/11/18) Kruger has only averaged 9:30 of ice time through the first three games of the season.

    The Swedish pivot has managed to pot a goal while going plus-2 over that span, but the Blackhawks brought him back for his ability in the faceoff circle rather than his scoring touch, so there's no reason to expect him to crack the 20-point mark this campaign. Kruger can safely be ignored in all fantasy formats.
