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.
Tyutin (lower-body) has been activated from IR and will play Tuesday vs. Detroit.
Tyutin has been out with a lower-body injury since November 14th, but will be back in the lineup vs. Detroit. Tyutin has registered two assists in 16 games this season. Expect Kevin Connauton to take a seat.
Tyutin (lower-body) could return to the lineup on Tuesday.
Tyutin was a full participant in the Blue Jackets’ practice on Monday and could be back on the blue line tomorrow vs. the Red Wings. Tyutin has been sidelined with a lower-body injury since November 14th. If Tyutin returns, expect Kevin Connauton to take a seat.
Columbus’ Tyutin on IR, expected to miss 4-6 weeks
It appears as if the Columbus Blue Jackets did indeed trade for Jordan Leopold in part because of injury issues: Fedor Tyutin is headed to injured reserve and is expected to miss four-to-six weeks, the Columbus Dispatch’s Shawn Mitchell reports.
Tyutin appeared to hurt his left knee (officially a “lower-body injury”) in a collision with Philadelphia Flyers forward Jakub Voracek.
The 31-year-old has two assists in 16 games so far in 2014-15. He’s seen a drop in ice time lately; after averaging more than 24 minutes per contest in both 2011-12 and 2012-13, he slipped to 21:25 last season and is averaging 20:18 per night so far this year.
