  • Penguins' Chad Ruhwedel: Pointless during playoffs

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (5/10/18) Ruhwedel failed to notch a single point during the Penguins' 12 postseason contests.

    While Ruhwedel's lack of offensive production may have been a concern for some, the coaching staff was likely content to continue utilizing him as a penalty-kill specialist. The blueliner averaged a mere 12:28 of ice time at even strength, but was fourth on the team in shorthanded ice time per game (2:08) -- behind only Kris Letang among defensemen. Although the 28-year-old did spend some time watching from the press box -- and may again periodically in 2018-19 -- he should be on the ice more often than not.

    Penguins' Chad Ruhwedel: Filling in shorthanded

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (4/23/18) Ruhwedel has logged over 15 minutes of ice time on the penalty kill in the postseason.

    In six playoff contests, Ruhwedel is averaging a mere 14:40 of ice time, however, 2:33 of that is coming in shorthanded situations. As a result of his inclusion on the penalty kill, the winger has recorded a team-high 12 blocks. Offensively, the San Diego native won't offer much in terms of productivity (zero playoff points), but the coaching staff no doubt values his defensive contributions as the Pens look to three-peat as Stanley Cup champions.

    Penguins' Chad Ruhwedel: Finally cracks lineup

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (3/5/18) Ruhwedel made his first appearance in the lineup against the Islanders on Saturday since Dec. 27.

    Even following the departure of Ian Cole, Ruhwedel has been unable to break into coach Mike Sullivan's blue-line pairings, having been relegated to the press box for 27 straight games. In his return to the ice, the San Diego native logged 13:55 of ice time and compiled three hits, one shot and a plus-1 rating. Without a regular spot in the lineup, the 27-year-old won't offer much in terms of fantasy value -- even in deeper formats.

    Penguins' Chad Ruhwedel: Ready to rock Thursday

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (1/25/18) Ruhwedel (upper body) has been activated from injured reserve and is on the ice for pregame warmups ahead of Thursday's matchup with Minnesota, Jonathan Bombulie of TribLive.com reports.

    Ruhwedel isn't going to be in the lineup for Thursday's contest, but he'll be ready to play following the upcoming all-star break if coach Mike Sullivan wants to shake things up on the back end. The 27-year-old American has notched one goal and three points in 30 contests this campaign.

    Penguins' Chad Ruhwedel: Will be game-time decision Sunday

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (1/7/18) Ruhwedel (upper body) will be a game-time decision Sunday against the Bruins.

    Ruhwedel hasn't played since Dec. 27 against Columbus, but he's still on injured reserve so he'll need to be activated before game time. The Penguins have six healthy defensemen and Brian Dumoulin (concussion) is a game-time decision as well, so there's less incentive to activate Ruhwedel, who has just one goal and two assists through 30 games.
