Kruger (wrist) will return to the Blackhawks lineup on Saturday.
Kruger has been sidelined since December 17th after undergoing surgery to repaid a dislocated wrist. The fourth-line centre is a key member of the Blackhawks penalty kill but provides no fantasy help. He has just one assist in 33 games this season.
Coach Quenneville says they're going to try Kruger at second line center more; he will start there on Saturday.
Kruger has played on the second line sparingly this season and saw some time there last year. He has 18 points (4G / 14A) in 46 games. He receives a boost in fantasy value while he is skating with Patrick Kane and Kris Versteeg. He makes for an interesting choice in one-day fantasy leagues.
Quenneville elected to move Marcus Kruger to wing and play him with Dave Bolland and Andrew Shaw.
Kruger moves to the wing with the acquisition of Brendan Morrison. The rookie has three goals and 11 points through 40 games. He may have peaked offensively this season as his minutes are guaranteed to drop.
