Michal Rozsival will remain in the Blackhawks lineup Monday night against the Kings.

Rozsival has dressed in 59 games this season but has recently found himself in and out of the lineup. He'll get to dress Monday night versus the Kings while David Rundblad will watch from the press box. Rozsival has a goal and 10 assists with 97 hits and 79 blocked shots this year.

Michal Rozsival will be scratched against the Columbus Blue Jackets on Friday night.

While Rozsival may no long have much fantasy value, he's still put up a nice season considering he's seen mostly third pairing minutes. Through 58 games this season he has a goal, 11 points, 79 blocks, and 97 hits.

Michal Rozsival has played much more regularly this season after serving as a platoon player in his previous two seasons with the Blackhawks.

He has skated in 56 games after dressing in 69 matches over the past two campaigns. "He gives you very competitive minutes and, defensively, offensively, he plays the right way," coach Joel Quenneville said. "He enhances our team game, our puck-possession game and moves the puck quickly." Rozsival should continue to play often down the stretch and during the playoffs in what will probably be his final year with Chicago.

The Chicago Blackhawks appear to be making a minor change to their defense, moving Michal Rozsival in for David Rundblad.

Rozsival, 36, has 11 points and 18 PIM in 55 games so far in 2014-15. This is probably more of a note for Daily Fantasy purposes than for relevant fantasy leagues, but either way, JFYI.

Defenseman Michal Rozsival and forward Daniel Carcillo will both be healthy scratches Wednesday night versus the Rangers.

Rozsival will be replaced by David Rundblad Wednesday night and has a goal and 10 assists in 55 games in the 2014-2015 season. Carcillo hasn’t seen game action since March 8th, a span of four games. When he’s in the lineup, Carcillo does carry some fantasy value for those in PIM leagues as he has four goals and eight points with 49 PIMs in 38 games played.
Mar 18 - 8:10 PM

Michal Rozsival will draw back into the lineup Monday night versus the Hurricanes.

Rozsival was scratched the previous two games but with Johnny Oduya not able to play, Rozsival will get back out there Monday night. However, with the Hawks acquisition of Kimmo Timonen, things don’t appear to be looking better for Rozsival to stay in the lineup once Oduya returns. He has a goal and seven assists in 49 games played in the 2014-2015 season.

Michal Rozsival was on the ice for Saturday morning's optional skate.

He missed Friday's game with an upper-body injury but is showing at least a little progress in his recovery. Rozsival was once fantasy relevant, but those days are long over.
Feb 14 - 12:50 PM

Michal Rozsival will miss Friday's game due to an upper-body injury.

Rozsival should be fine for Sunday's contest though. With Rozsival out, it looks like Kyle Cumiskey will be inserted into the lineup for Friday's contest. Rozsival has a goal and seven points in 44 contests this season.
Feb 13 - 1:04 PM

Michal Rozsival has recovered from a lower-body injury.

Rozsival is expected to play in the Winter Classic on Thursday. He missed two contests due to the ailment. Tim Erixon will probably be listed as a healthy scratch to make room for Rozsival.

Michal Rozsival will likely play in the Winter Classic against the Washington Capitals on Thursday, according to coach Joel Quenneville.

He has missed Chicago's past two games because of a lower-body injury.

Michal Rozsival (lower body) is out on Monday.

Rozsival was initially projected to be a game-time decision, but it looks like we're getting our answer early. Look for Tim Erixon to stay in the lineup as a result.

Michal Rozsival (lower body) will be a "game day" decision Monday.

He missed Saturday's game against Colorado because of a lower-body injury. Rozsival has four points, 43 hits and a plus-6 rating in 26 games.

Michal Rozsival won't suit up with the Chicago Blackhawks on Saturday and might not be able to play on Monday, either.

The veteran blueliner isn't much of a difference-maker in fantasy, so JFYI here.
Sat, Dec 27, 2014 02:44:00 PM

With Michal Rozsival returning to the lineup, it looks like the Chicago Blackhawks will scratch David Rundblad instead of Trevor van Riemsdyk.

"TVR" has been averaging about three more minutes of ice time per game than Rundblad, so it's not a huge shock. Rozsival makes a difference in reality, but doesn't really get the prominent opportunities (PP or otherwise) to be a huge factor in fantasy.
