  • Blackhawks' Jan Rutta: Enjoys solid first NHL season

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (4/25/18) Rutta finished the 2017-18 campaign having notched six goals and 20 points while posting a minus-1 rating in 57 games.

    The 27-year-old blueliner posted a solid stat line in what was technically his rookie season, especially considering he missed a large portion of the campaign due to several different injuries. Rutta signed a one-year, $2.25 million extension with the Blackhawks in March, so he'll likely have a regular spot in their lineup in 2018-19, unless Chicago acquires several NHL-ready defenseman via the draft and free agency.

    Blackhawks' Jan Rutta: Inks extension

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (3/8/18) Rutta signed a one-year contract extension with Chicago on Thursday.

    Rutta -- who was scheduled to become an unrestricted free agent following the 2017-18 campaign -- will see a significant pay bump up to $2.25 million, Mark Lazerus of the Chicago Sun-Times reports. The rookie defenseman has notched six goals, 13 helpers and 54 shots this season and should see a more consistent role heading into 2018-19, considering how much the Hawks are paying him.

    Blackhawks' Jan Rutta: Ready to return

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (3/7/18) Rutta (lower body) will return to the lineup for Thursday's game against the Hurricanes, Eric Lear of the Blackhawks' official site reports.

    Rutta has missed 12 of Chicago's last 14 games due to injury, so he'll hope to stay healthy down the stretch and end the 2017-18 campaign on a high note. The oft-injured defender, who's notched six goals and 19 points in 43 contests this season, will be an unrestricted free agent after this season. It remains to be seen if the Blackhawks will express any interest in bringing him back for 2018-19.

    Blackhawks' Jan Rutta: Absent from Tuesday's lineup

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (3/6/18) Rutta (lower body) won't play against the Avalanche on Tuesday, Tracey Myers of NHL.com reports.

    This will be the fourth straight game Rutta watches from the sidelines. In fact, the 27-year-old defenseman has suited up for just four games since the beginning of February, notching one goal, one assist and a plus-5 rating. Expect Carl Dahlstrom to continue rotating in on the Blackhawks' blue line.

    Blackhawks' Jan Rutta: Out again Sunday

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (3/4/18) Rutta (lower body) will not play Sunday in Anaheim, Mark Lazerus of the Chicago Sun-Times reports.

    Rutta has now missed three straight games, last playing on Feb. 24. The 27-year-old rookie has six goals and 19 points in 53 games this season. This shouldn't have much impact in standard fantasy leagues.
