Lightning's Jan Rutta: Cracks lineup in Game 2
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rutta (undisclosed) had three blocks, two hits and one shot Monday in a 3-2 win over Dallas in Game 2.

Rutta, making just his second appearance of the playoffs, received just under 16 minutes of ice time and helped the Lightning even the series. He was one of Tampa Bay's four primary defensemen on the penalty kill despite having last played Aug. 5 in the round robin. The 30-year-old Rutta played in 33 games during the regular season, supplying one goal and six assists.

by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Contrary to a previous report, Rutta (undisclosed) is expected to suit up for Game 2 against Dallas on Monday, Erik Erlendsson of LightningInsider.com reports.

Despite an earlier report that listed Rutta as a scratch for the 19th straight game, the 30-year-old blueliner will actually make his return to the lineup Monday. In his lone appearance this postseason, he blocked three shots and saw 16:58 of ice time.

Rutta will miss his 19th consecutive game Monday, last suiting up on Aug. 5. It appears likely that the 30-year-old blueliner will miss the rest of the postseason at this rate.

Lightning's Jan Rutta: Won't play Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rutta (undisclosed) won't suit up in Thursday's game against the Islanders, Joe Smith of The Athletic reports.

Rutta remains out of the lineup without a timetable for return, as he will miss his 16th straight game in the playoffs Thursday. In his stead, Luke Schenn will operate as the team's seventh defenseman.

Lightning's Jan Rutta: Still can't play Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rutta (undisclosed) won't play in Sunday's Game 4 versus the Islanders, per the NHL's official media site.

Lightning's Jan Rutta: Still out Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lightning's Jan Rutta: Missing Game 2
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rutta (undisclosed) won't be in the lineup for Wednesday's Game 2 matchup against the Islanders, per the NHL's official media site.

Rutta is set to miss his 13th straight contest due to the undisclosed issue, and he is still without a timetable for a return. The Lightning have been on a nice five-game winning streak, so they'll likely roll with the same lineup, including deploying Luke Schenn as their seventh defenseman.

Lightning's Jan Rutta: Still not ready
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Coach Jon Cooper said Sunday that Rutta (undisclosed) won't be available for Monday's Game 1 against the Islanders.

Rutta is set to miss his 12th straight contest in the bubble. At this rate, it's not likely that Rutta would join the lineup even when he's healthy with the Lightning playing well, barring any injuries of course. In his stead, Luke Schenn and Braydon Coburn will likely battle for the final spot in the lineup for Game 1.

Lightning's Jan Rutta: Remains out Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The 30-year-old blueliner has now missed the last 11 games, last suiting up on Aug. 5 against Boston. With Ryan McDonagh (undisclosed) back in the lineup, Rutta may not get back in the lineup even when he's healthy.

Lightning's Jan Rutta: Still sidelined for Game 3
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rutta (undisclosed) isn't in the lineup for Wednesday's Game 3 matchup against Boston, per the NHL's media site.

This news isn't quite surprising, considering Rutta missed out on Game 2 that was played just 24 hours ago. The Czech-born player will miss his eight straight game with the issue, and in his stead, the Lightning are expected to play seven defensemen with the addition of Like Schenn and Braydon Coburn in the lineup.

Lightning's Jan Rutta: Remains unavailable
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rutta (undisclosed) will remain sidelined for Wednesday's Game 5.

Rutta will miss a sixth straight game Wednesday and Tampa Bay has yet to release any details regarding a timeline for his recovery. At this point the 30-year-old blueliner should be considered out indefinitely.

August 18, 2020 05:20 AM
Lightning's Jan Rutta: Won't play in Game 4
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rutta (undisclosed) will not be in the lineup against the Blue Jackets for Monday's Game 4, per NHL.com.

Rutta has played in just one game since early February, in part due to injury. In his lone playoff appearance, the blueliner logged 16:58 of ice time, recording one shot and three blocks. Even once given the all-clear, Rutta is far from a lock for the lineup and would likely need to beat out Kevin Shattenkirk for a spot.

August 15, 2020 07:28 PM
Lightning's Jan Rutta: Sitting out Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rutta (undisclosed) won't play in Saturday's Game 3 versus the Blue Jackets, per the NHL's official media site.

Rutta was injured Aug. 5 against the Bruins and will now miss a fourth straight game. There's still no timetable for Rutta's return, but he could be scratched even once he's healthy.

August 13, 2020 03:00 PM
Lightning's Jan Rutta: No-go for Game 2
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rutta (undisclosed) will miss a third straight game Thursday.

The Lightning have yet to release an expected timetable for Rutta's return, and there's no guarantee he'd be included in the lineup even if he were healthy, anyway. Nonetheless, another update on the 30-year-old blueliner's status should surface once he's deemed fit to play.

August 11, 2020 04:48 AM
Lightning's Jan Rutta: Status unchanged
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rutta (undisclosed) remains unfit to play and will miss Tuesday's Game 1 against Columbus, Joe Smith of The Athletic reports.

Rutta logged 16:58 of ice time in his lone appearance during the Lightning's three round-robin matchups, tallying one shot and three blocks. Considering the blueliner hasn't scored in his last 19 outings, fantasy managers shouldn't bank on Rutta producing offensively.

August 8, 2020 08:16 PM
Lightning's Jan Rutta: Remains out Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rutta (undisclosed) is not in the lineup for Saturday's round-robin matchup against Philadelphia, Erik Erlendsson of LightningInsider.com reports.

Rutta sat out the first game of the round robin before skating 16:58 of ice time against Boston on Wednesday. He's not much of a fantasy contributor, as evidenced by the seven points, 43 shots, 14 PIM, 19 hits and 21 blocks through 33 games this year, so there shouldn't be too many ripple effects in the virtual arena from his absence.
