Tyutin will become part of the Blue Jackets' hockey operations team, ending his professional career, the club announced Monday.
Tyutin didn't play anywhere last season after spending the 2016-17 campaign with Colorado. In 872 NHL games -- primarily with Columbus -- the Russian racked up 55 goals, 209 assists and 548 PIM. Selected by the Rangers with the 40th pick of the 2001 NHL Draft, the blueliner enjoyed a 13-year career that included stints in the KHL.
Tyutin (groin) is likely to suit up for Tuesday's game against the Canadiens, Terry Frei of the Denver Post reports.
We'll be sure to update Tyutin's status prior to puck drop if he's actually scratched from the game, but either way he shouldn't be considered for the majority of fantasy lineups. Just as a reminder, the Russian blueliner hasn't netted a goal or even recorded a point in almost two months.
Tyutin (groin) is questionable for Tuesday's matchup with Montreal.
Tyutin has missed three straight games, although most owners probably didn't even notice considering has was on a 17-game pointless streak prior to getting hurt. Given his limited scoring, the blueliner is unlikely to offer enough fantasy value through his ancillary stats -- 83 hits and 53 blocked shots -- to make him worth a look in most formats.
Tyutin (groin) won't play in Saturday's game against Winnipeg.
The 33-year-old has missed both of Colorado's games since the All-Star break and will push that to three Saturday. With eight points in 40 games, the blueliner isn't much of a fantasy producer in most leagues, despite playing 19:16 per game. His next chance to get into the lineup will come Thursday against Pittsburgh.
Tyutin (groin) will not play in Wednesdays game against the Kings, Mike Chambers of the Denver Post reports.
With just eight points over 40 contests this season and a minus-19 rating, Tyutin doesn't provide much fantasy upside even when he's in the lineup. Fortunately, the Avs regained the services of fellow blueliner Tyson Barrie on the same night they lost Tyutin, giving them the necessary numbers among the defensive ranks. When the veteran rejoins the lineup, Patrick Wiercioch will probably be the top candidate to be scratched.
Tyutin will miss Tuesday night's game in Anaheim due to a groin injury.
It's unclear when Tyutin sustained the injury, but it's possible that he tweaked something during Monday's practice, the first since the All-Star break. The Russian blueliner has not recorded a point since Dec. 16, so he probably should not be rostered in the grand majority of fantasy formats anyhow.
Tyutin has just a single point in his last 16 games, skating to a minus-13 during that span.
The veteran rearguard has managed eight points in 33 games this year, which is actually a marked improvement over the three in 61 contests last season in Columbus, but he's been absolutely awful since the beginning of December. Prior to the drought, Tyutin recorded a four-game assist streak, which clearly was an anomaly given his unspectacular play since. Despite his struggles, the blueliner is currently skating on the Avs' top pair while averaging 19:02 of ice time, which speaks to just how horrible of a season it's been for the league's worst team.
Tyutin scored a second-period goal and received 17:41 of ice time during Friday's loss to Florida.
It was Tyutin's first goal of the season, and with just two goals and 11 points through 84 games over the past two years, he doesn't bring a lot of fantasy value to the table. Additionally, the 33-year-old veteran has averaged under a shot per game (0.66) through his past three seasons. You should be aiming higher in all fantasy settings.
Tyutin (lower body) will return to the lineup Thursday night against the Bruins, Mike Chambers of The Denver Post reports.
Tyutin rarely shoots and has a minus-5 rating in 18 games, but the 33-year-old is up to seven helpers in that span. If that's a category for which you need fantasy points, then you're likely to get Tyutin on the cheap considering he's a one-dimensional skater.
Tyutin (lower body) has been ruled out of Tuesday night's road game in Nashville, Robby Stanley of NHL.com reports.
Tyutin will miss his second straight game to the mystery ailment. With the Colorado defense reeling from the losses of Tyutin and Erik Johnson (leg), the recently acquired Cody Goloubef could be in line for his first significant work of the season Tuesday.
Tyutin is inactive for Saturday's game against the Stars because of a lower-body injury, Terry Frei of the Denver Post reports.
Eric Gelinas is tapped to replace the 33-year-old Tyutin, who has four assists in the previous five games. He'll have a couple of days off before the Avalanche are back in action Tuesday against the Predators.
Tyutin (arm) is in the lineup for Sunday's matchup with the Bruins, Jack Edwards of NESN reports.
Tyutin's injury was never thought to be serious and he'll take his place on Colorado's second defensive pairing for Sunday's game. Nevertheless, the 33-year-old defenseman lacks much of an offensive skill set and should be passed over in most fantasy formats.
Tyutin is day-to-day with an arm injury.
Tyutin sustained the injury in Friday's matchup with the Jets, but his day-to-day tag suggests his ailment isn't believed to be overly serious. The veteran blueliner isn't a viable option in most fantasy formats due to his limited offensive upside.
Tyutin (groin) will play Thursday night against the Blackhawks.
The veteran blueliner has missed the past four games with the injury, so the hope is that he can pick up where he left off to start the season, having notched two assists through his first four games.
Tyutin (groin) could play Tuesday against the Predators, but will be a healthy scratch for the contest, Terry Frei of the Denver Post reports.
Tyutin has missed Colorado's last three games with a groin injury and is still working himself back into game shape, which is why he'll watch Tuesday's matchup with Nashville from the press box. The 33-year-old blueliner is a solid source of depth for the Avalanche, but isn't a viable option in most fantasy leagues due to his extremely limited offensive upside.
Tyutin (groin) is not in the lineup Saturday against the Coyotes.
Tyutin will miss his third consecutive game as he continues to recover from a groin injury sustained a week ago. There's been no word about the 33-year-old's progress in his rehab so it wouldn't be surprising if he's held out of the Avs Nov. 1 matchup with the Predators as well.
Tyutin (groin) will not play in Friday night's matchup with the Jets.
Despite a full six days to get healthy ahead of Friday's contest, Tyutin will not suit up for the second straight game, perhaps implying that his groin problem is a bit more serious than originally thought. Hopefully the Avalanche will provide some more insight on the 33-year-old defenseman ahead of their Saturday night matchup with the Coyotes.
Tyutin (groin) won't be in the lineup for Saturday's game against the Panthers, Mike Chambers of the Denver Post reports.
Tyutin has had a nice start to the season, notching two assists over four games, but still isn't a viable option in the majority of season-long formats. Colorado doesn't play again until Friday against Winnipeg after Saturday's tilt, which should give Tyutin plenty of time to recover as long as he isn't dealing with a serious groin injury. In the meantime, Eric Gelinas will slot into Tyutin's spot in the Avalanche's lineup against the Panthers.
Tyutin recorded his first assist of the season during Monday's game against Pittsburgh.
Tyutin is a meat-and-potatoes defenseman playing his 13th season in the league, but he's two years removed from being a viable fantasy option. And while he does tip the scales in the counting stats (hits and blocked shots), expecting much offense is likely ill-advised. Tyutin has also been limited to just 197 of a potential 246 games over the past three years.
Tyutin signed a one-year deal in Colorado worth $2 million Friday, reports Bob McKenzie of TSN.
Tyutin was bought out of his deal in Columbus and now gets a one-year gig in Mile High to try to prove he's more than the dissociated parts he showed in Ohio. He can be a solid, five-six defender for the Avs, but that won't translate into fantasy value for you.
