Tyutin (lower-body) is expected to be back in the Colorado lineup on Thursday.
Tyutin has missed the last two games with a lower-body injury, but it looks like he will be back in tonight in Boston. There’s no word on who he will replace, but Tyson Barrie missed the morning skate with an illness, so it could be Barrie, Cody Goloubef or Eric Gelinas.
The Avalanche signed Fedor Tyutin to a one-year deal worth $2 million.
Tyutin, 32, has had some strong offensive years during his 12-year career, but he is coming off of his worst season, having recorded just three points (1G / 2A) in 61 games with the Blue Jackets. He was bought out by Columbus, but brings a lot of experience to a relatively young Avalanche blueline.
Tyutin served as a healthy scratch in the last two games, but will be back in the lineup tonight in San Jose. With Tyutin coming back in, Dalton Prout will become a healthy scratch. Tyutin has one assist a and minus-6 rating this season.
