  • Coyotes' Marcus Kruger: Dealt to Coyotes

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (5/3/18) Kruger was traded from the Hurricanes to the Coyotes on Thursday, the Coyotes' official site reports.

    Kruger and a third-round pick will go to Arizona, while the Hurricanes acquired Jordan Martinook and a fourth-round selection in the deal. The 27-year-old was placed on waivers by the Coyotes in February and is slated to cost a cap hit of $3.083 million in his final year of a three-year contract next season. Kruger didn't produce much in his only season for Carolina, notching just six points -- one goal and five assists -- over 48 games. It's unlikely he will gain fantasy relevance with a move to Arizona, but Kruger should have a shot at cracking the Opening Night roster in 2018-19.

    Hurricanes' Marcus Kruger: Designated for waivers

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (2/8/18) Kruger was placed on waivers by the Canes on Thursday.

    Kruger was a healthy scratch against the Flyers on Tuesday and is bogged down in a 19-game goalless streak. During his drought, the center has tallied a lone helper, seven shots and 21 hits while averaging 10:45 of ice time. If the Swede goes unclaimed -- which is by no means guaranteed -- he figures to be reassigned to AHL Charlotte.

    Hurricanes' Marcus Kruger: Generating little offense on fourth line

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (1/28/18) Kruger went pointless in nine games leading up to the All-Star break, registering just two shots on goal and four PIM over that span.

    Since returning from a four-game absence due to a lower-body injury, Kruger has resumed his role as fourth-line center for the Canes, which means his offense is going to be non-existent most nights. With just five points in 44 games this season, Kruger just doesn't move the needle in most fantasy formats, and is best left on your league's waiver wire.

    Hurricanes' Marcus Kruger: Activated off IR

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (1/5/18) The Hurricanes activated Kruger (lower body) from injured reserve Friday.

    Carolina assigned forward Aleksi Saarela to AHL Charlotte in a corresponding move, a transaction that suggests Kruger will almost certainly be ready to return Saturday against the Bruins. The 27-year-old pivot's return will bolster the Hurricanes' bottom-six group and penalty-killing unit, but it won't mean much for fantasy owners, as his lack of offensive upside keeps him off the radar in all but the deepest of season-long formats.

    Hurricanes' Marcus Kruger: Trending toward return

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (1/5/18) Kruger (lower body) is feeling good Friday, and if he makes it through a full practice he'll play Saturday against the Bruins, Michael Smith of the Hurricanes' official site reports.

    Kruger is currently on injured reserve, but he can be activated at any point. Kruger starts 55.7 percent of his shifts in the defensive zone, which has proven effective as he's won 53.7 percent of his faceoffs. This makes him quite useful for real-life hockey but he's still out of the fantasy realm, as he logs just 10:56 of ice time per game.
