  • Blackhawks' Marcus Kruger: Ready for Sunday's contest

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (2/24/19) Kruger (foot) will play in Sunday's game versus the Stars, Scott Powers of The Athletic reports.

    Originally deemed a game-time decision after injuring his foot while blocking a shot Friday, Kruger will slot back onto the fourth line. He adds a solid defensive presence but doesn't add much in the offensive zone with just nine points in 55 games.

    Blackhawks' Marcus Kruger: Could play Sunday

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (2/23/19) Coach Jeremy Colliton is hopeful that Kruger (foot) will be able to play Sunday against the Stars, Eric Lear of the Blackhawks' official site reports.

    Kruger exited Friday's loss to the Avalanche after blocking a shot with his foot, but it appears as though he's probably just battling soreness. Another update on the Swedish forward's status should surface prior to puck drop Sunday afternoon.

    Blackhawks' Marcus Kruger: Suffers foot injury

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (2/22/19) Kruger injured his foot during Friday's game versus the Avalanche and won't return, Mark Lazerus of The Athletic reports.

    Kruger blocked Tyson Barrie's shot and immediately went to the room. The 28-year-old pivot doesn't have a major fantasy impact with just nine points in 54 games, but he's a fixture on the Blackhawks' fourth line. The Blackhawks now have just 11 healthy forwards, so they'll likely need to promote a forward from AHL Rockford before Sunday's game versus the Stars.

    Blackhawks' Marcus Kruger: Being deployed as PK specialist

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (1/25/19) Kruger is only averaging 10:38 of total ice time per contest this campaign, but 1:52 of that time can be attributed to his work on Chicago's penalty kill.

    Kruger was never expected to produce much offense this season, so although his abilities in the faceoff circle and on the penalty kill have made him an invaluable member of the Blackhawks' roster, he has next to no value in most fantasy formats.

    Blackhawks' Marcus Kruger: Activated off IR

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (12/28/18) The Blackhawks activated Kruger (concussion) off injured reserve Friday.

    Kruger returned to practice Thursday, which was the first indication that he was likely nearing a return to action. The 28-year-old Swede will almost certainly rejoin the lineup for Saturday's game against Colorado.
