2023 Fantasy Outlook
After breaking camp with the Flames, Ruzicka was scratched for 10 of the team's first 11 games. He then played in 35 straight, during which he racked up all 20 of his points on the year. That stretch included an unexpected stay on the top line. The magic wore out in January, and he was scratched again for all but eight of the last 36 contests. It's not all that uncommon of a development pattern for the Flames' young forwards, mirroring guys like Dillon Dube and Andrew Mangiapane in recent years. Ruzicka is far from guaranteed a spot in the lineup this fall, but he should have the inside edge for a bottom-six role under new head coach Ryan Huska, a bench boss more likely to trust young forwards than previous coach Darryl Sutter.

The Coyotes placed Ruzicka on unconditional waivers Friday, according to Chris Johnston of The Athletic.
ANALYSIS
Ruzicka will have his contract terminated once he passes through waivers. Ruzicka had three goals and nine points in 39 games with the Flames before he was claimed off waivers by Arizona, where he went pointless in three appearances.

Latest Fantasy Rumors
Set to be scratched
CCalgary Flames  Free Agent
November 20, 2023
Ruzicka appears to be on track to sit as a healthy scratch Monday against Seattle, Eric Francis of Sportsnet reports.
ANALYSIS
Ruzicka has appeared in six straight games for Calgary, but he's gone pointless while posting a minus-3 rating over that span, so it isn't surprising to see him likely heading to the press box Monday. Walker Duehr is expected to take Ruzicka's spot in the lineup versus the Kraken.
