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

January 11, 2019
Rutta and a 2019 seventh-pick were traded from the Blackhawks to the Lightning on Friday in exchange for Slater Koekkoek and a 2019 fifth-round pick.
ANALYSIS
Rutta had a brief run of success with the Blackhawks in 2017-18, compiling 20 points -- six goals and 14 assists -- over 57 games. He's added another six point in 23 games with the Blackhawks this season, but Rutta will now serve as depth on the back end for the Bolts. The 28-year-old will likely begin his service at AHL Syracuse, but he could join the Lightning at some point this season.
