Tuomo Ruutu is a healthy scratch in Thursday's game against the Florida Panthers.

The 33-year-old hasn't been very effective for the Devils this season. He has no goals or points in 32 games in 2015-16. Vojtech Mozik will also watch the game from the press box.
Mar 31 - 7:43 PM

Tuomo Ruutu returned to action Saturday night.

He had missed the Thursday game against the Sharks with a minor injury. Ruutu has long lost any fantasy value so his return should really not impact anyone's fantasy roster.
Mar 13 - 3:14 AM

Tuomo Ruutu won't be available to play in Thursday's game against the Sharks.

Ruutu is dealing with a minor injury according to head coach John Hynes. He's can probably be considered day-to-day. The 33-year-old has no points and a minus-6 rating in 23 games this season. He shouldn't be on your fantasy radar.
Mar 10 - 8:42 PM

Tuomo Ruutu has been fined $5,000 for slew-footing Pittsburgh's Matt Cullen.

The incident occurred this past Sunday and it earned Ruutu two minutes in the box for tripping. He has no points in 23 games this season.
Mar 9 - 1:23 PM

Tuomo Ruutu, Eric Gelinas, and Damon Severson will be scratched from Friday's match with the Islanders.

Unfortunately there isn't a lick of fantasy value between these three, which is rather disappointing. Ruutu previously was a quality source of tough guy stats but has just 31 hits in 15 games this season. While Gelinas and Severson were both expected to produce offensively, yet have just 19 points between them.
Feb 19 - 6:22 PM

Tuomo Ruutu and Eric Gelinas will be scratched against the Flyers on Tuesday night.

With no points and just 31 hits in 15 for the Devils this season, it seems plain to say that Ruutu is without much fantasy value anymore. Gelinas meanwhile has six points and 51 hits in 34 games, so there isn't much within him either.
Feb 16 - 6:17 PM

Tuomo Ruutu will be a healthy scratch in Monday's game against the New York Rangers.

The 32-year-old will be a healthy scratch for a fourth consecutive game. He has no goals and no assists in 15 games this season. Damon Severson and Stefan Matteau will join him in the press box.
Feb 8 - 7:07 PM

Tuomo Ruutu and Stefan Matteau will be scratched against the Rangers on Tuesday night.

While Matteau has not made much of an impact at the NHL level, Ruutu has continued to be a nice veteran presence. He's posted no points and 30 hits in 15 games thus far, but he's been limited to injury so if you see him pick up the physical play, take a flier if your league rewards it.
Feb 2 - 6:24 PM

Tuomo Ruutu (lower body) has been removed from the injured reserve list.

The Devils sent Paul Thompson to the minors earlier in the day and now we know why. Ruutu has no points in nine games this season.
Jan 14 - 4:30 PM

Tuomo Ruutu is dealing with a lower-body injury.

Ruutu has been moved to the injured reserve list, retroactive to Wednesday. That was his first game back after missing four straight games due to a combination of an illness and simply being a healthy scratch. We don't know how severe his current injury is at this time.
Jan 8 - 11:01 AM

Tuomo Ruutu is a healthy scratch in Monday's game against the Detroit Red Wings.

The 32-year-old was originally sidelined with an illness, but he's still now healthy and still not in the lineup. Ruutu has no goals or points in eight games this season. Eric Gelinas will also watch the game from the press box.
Jan 4 - 7:09 PM

Tuomo Ruutu has recovered from his illness and was a healthy scratch on Saturday.

Ruutu missed two games with the illness and has been practicing with the team. Ruutu has no points in only eight games of action this season.
Jan 3 - 9:59 AM

The New Jersey Devils will scratch Tuomo Ruutu, Eric Gelinas, and Tyler Kennedy for their game on Saturday night.

All three have no fantasy upside moving forward.
Jan 2 - 6:56 PM

Tuomo Ruutu (illness) took part in Friday's practice.

Ruutu has missed two straight games due to the illness. He might be back on Saturday, but he was acting as an extra skater during the practice, so that's far from a sure thing.
