2018 Fantasy Outlook
Rutta was pretty good when healthy last campaign, picking up six goals and 20 points while averaging 19:15 of ice time in 57 appearances with Chicago. The 28-year-old blueliner appears poised to slot into a middle-pairing role with the Blackhawks in 2018-19, and if he's able to stay healthy, he could hit the 35-point mark, making him worth a look as a bench option in deeper formats. There's definitely a cap on Rutta's upside, but he'll warrant consideration as a late-round selection in drafts this season. Read Past Outlooks

March 8, 2019
The Lightning recalled Rutta from AHL Syracuse on Friday, Joe Smith of The Athletic reports.
ANALYSIS
Anton Stralman is dealing with a lower-body injury, but there's still six other healthy forwards so Rutta will likely just serve as insurance. He's used to that role, as he was called up in February and was a healthy scratch in all three games.
