Tuomo Ruutu (flu) is ready to return.

Ruutu missed three contests due to the illness, but unlike Jaromir Jagr, Ruutu's illness wasn't later revealed to be the mumps. "I was pretty sick for a while," Ruutu said. "But, you know what? After being sick like that, even though it was nothing serious, there's nothing better than feeling normal. You appreciate it so much more when you're actually healthy." He has five goals and eight points in 40 games this season.

Tuomo Ruutu (flu) should be available to play Wednesday against Toronto.

Jan 22 - 5:36 PM

Tuomo Ruutu will not be in uniform Monday as he continues to recover from the flu.

Ruutu and Jaromir Jagr have been hit hard with the flu bug and both players have yet to return to skating. Ruutu has five goals and eight points in 43 games this season so he should not be on your fantasy radar.
Jan 18 - 8:16 AM

Joe Whitney will skate in his place on Wednesday night. Ruutu was placed on injured reserve to make room for Eric Gelinas' activation.

Tuomo Ruutu (illness) will miss Wednesday's game.

Ruutu won't even travel with the Devils to Los Angeles for that contest. He might join the team later in the three-game road trip. His absence led to the Devils recalling Joe Whitney, who might take Ruutu's place on the fourth line.

Ruutu has five goals and seven points in 34 games this season. He has only averaged 11:26 minutes per contest in 2014-15, although he's been getting more responsibility lately as the Devils try to get by with several key injured forwards. Ruutu has averaged 14:16 minutes in December.

Tuomo Ruutu played on Friday after being a healthy scratch on Tuesday.

Ruutu played a team low 7:04 minutes but had four hits in that time span to make his presence felt. It now seems like hits are his biggest contribution in fantasy hockey so do not think about taking him if you do not play that category.
Sat, Oct 25, 2014 08:22:00 AM

Tuomo Ruutu is projected to spend Tuesday's game in the press box.

Ruutu has a goal in five games with the New Jersey Devils in 2014-15. He still has some value in the hits department, but his limited playing time is preventing him from making noteworthy contributions in most other categories.
Tue, Oct 21, 2014 02:55:00 PM

Tuomo Ruutu scored a goal in the Devils' 3-2 shootout loss to Buffalo on Tuesday.

Ruutu ended a 10-game goal scoring drought. He now has two goals and six points in 13 contests with the New Jersey Devils.
