Josh Rimer is reporting that the New Jersey Devils are giving Jordin Tootoo a professional tryout offer.
Tootoo played for the Detroit Red Wings last season and was bought out of his contract in June. There were rumors that the Winnipeg Jets offered him a two-way contract that he turned down before agreeing to go to camp with the Devils. Tootoo has value in pools that use penalty minutes but of course he will have to crack the Devils roster to have any value. Sep 13 - 8:32 AM

Jordin Tootoo remains an unsigned free agent.

He was bought out by the Detroit Red Wings and reportedly turned down a two-way offer from the Winnipeg Jets. Tootoo probably wouldn't be a fit to return to Nashville, but he still could be a physical presence somewhere in the NHL.

The Winnipeg Jets could be a potential landing spot for Jordin Tootoo.

The Churchill, Manitoba product was placed on waivers by the Red Wings on Wednesday with the intention of buying out the remainder of his contract. Winnipeg may have several openings in their bottom-six group with Olli Jokinen, Devin Setoguchi and Chris Thorburn eligible for unrestricted free agency as well as Matt Halischuk, Michael Frolik and James Wright set to be restricted free agents.

The Detroit Red Wings have placed Jordin Tootoo on waivers.

The plan is to buy out the remainder of Tootoo's contract if he clears waivers. Because the Red Wings still have an available compliance buyout, Detroit would save $1.9 million in cap space for the 2014-15 campaign.

Detroit is making one last attempt to try to trade Jordin Tootoo.

If they are unsuccessful then the Wings are expected to use a compliance buyout on him. Tootoo has one season left on a deal that owns a $1.9 million cap hit. He appeared in only 11 games with the Detroit in 2013-14 and spent most of the season in the AHL with Grand Rapids. He recorded 18 points and 104 penalty minutes in 51 contests with the Red Wings' AHL affiliate.

Jordin Tootoo might be bought out by Detroit.

"Toots has done everything we could have asked of him in the AHL," GM Ken Holland said. "I don't know if we'll buy him out, but we don't want Toots in the American League. I have to figure out a way to get Jordin Tootoo back in the NHL." He has one year left on his contract, which carries a cap hit of $1.9 million. Tootoo skated in just 11 games with the Red Wings this past season.
Apr 30 - 9:48 AM

Jordin Tootoo has been returned to the minors.

Tootoo has an assist in 11 games this season. His three-year, $5.7 million contract with Detroit certainly hasn't worked out for either side and there's still another season left on the deal.
Mar 18 - 2:47 PM

Jordin Tootoo has been called up by Detroit.

He's projected to suit up in Sunday's game versus Chicago. Tootoo has appeared in just 10 games with the Red Wings this season.
Mar 15 - 6:14 PM

The Detroit Red Wings have sent Jordin Tootoo to the minors.

Tootoo is in the second season of a three-year, $5.7 million contract, but he's fallen out of favor in Detroit. He was recalled for a handful of days before Detroit was dealing with an excessive number of injuries, but now that situation is improving, the Red Wings are shipping him back to the AHL.

Jordin Tootoo has been called up by the Detroit Red Wings.

Detroit has several injured forwards right now, so it makes sense for them to bring back Tootoo. He has four points and 23 penalty minutes in 12 AHL games this season.

Jordin Tootoo has been assigned to the minors by Detroit.

Jordin Tootoo has cleared waivers, but he won't be heading to the minors yet.

If he does end up being sent to the AHL then his demotion will save the Wings $925,000 in cap space. Detroit tried to shop Tootoo around the league for a draft pick prior to going to waiver route, but they didn't find any takers for the pesky winger. He has no points, five penalty minutes and 18 hits in eight outings this year.

Jordin Tootoo has been waived by the Detroit Red Wings.

Tootoo has spent three of Detroit's last four games in the press box. He has no points and a minus-four rating in eight contests in 2013-14.
Wed, Nov 6, 2013 12:16:00 PM

Jordin Tootoo will get back into Detroit's lineup Monday at Winnipeg.

The feisty winger has been a healthy scratch often in the early going of this season. In seven appearances with the Wings, he has no points and 16 his. Mikael Samuelsson will head to the press box for Monday's game instead.

Jordin Tootoo is OK after getting a two-handed slash to the back of the leg Saturday night.

Philadelphia forward Kris Newbury committed the infraction late in the third period and earned a two minute penalty on the play. "More of a stinger than anything," Tootoo said. "It caught the right nerve, I guess. Other than that, it just flared up a little bit." Tootoo was making his season debut in the contest and he logged just 3:54 of ice time.
