Ruutu signed a one-year contract with HC Davos of Swiss National League A on Friday.

EDGE Analysis

The 33-year-old Finn moves on from the NHL after getting dropped from his PTO with the Canucks over two weeks ago. Ruutu played his best hockey as a member of the Hurricanes in the late 2000s, highlighted by a 57-point campaign in 2010-11. Fans of Ruutu know that he plays aggressively and tends to hit anything that moves.

Ruutu was let go from his PTO by the Canucks on Tuesday, Bob McKenzie of TSN reports.

EDGE Analysis

In five preseason contests, Ruutu managed just one point while averaging 13:32 of ice time per night. Over the past two years, the 33-year-old managed a meager 14 points in 110 contests. With numbers like that, the winger will be hard pressed to find a team willing to add him to the roster just before Opening Night.

Ruutu signed a professional tryout agreement with the Canucks on Tuesday.

EDGE Analysis

Ruutu has been with the Devils the past three seasons, but saw action in just 33 games this past year due to a fractured foot that kept him off the ice for an extended period of time. The 33-year-old veteran winger was only able to notch one assist and remained well off the fantasy radar. Ruutu isn't getting any younger and has dealt with his fair share of injuries, so it's tough to see him making a large impact with the Canucks.

Ruutu (lower body) was activated off injured reserve Thursday.

EDGE Analysis

Ruutu is set to draw into the lineup for just the 10th time this season, and is expected to play alongside Travis Zajac and Lee Stempniak on the second line. He'll provide some much needed depth with six other Devils forwards dealing with an injury, and will look to tally his first point after going without one in his first nine contests.

Ruutu (lower body) was on the ice for practice Monday, but didn't participate in line rushes, Tom Gulitti of The Record reports.

EDGE Analysis

Ruutu's first eligible to rejoin the lineup for Thursday's contest against the Avalanche, and his presence at practice Monday certainly bodes well for his chances of playing when first eligible. However, his progress at practice over the next couple days should provide a clearer picture of a potential timetable.

Ruutu (lower body) was placed on injured reserve Friday to allow the Devils to recall a trio of players from AHL Albany.

EDGE Analysis

Ruutu has been heavy hit by the injury bug this season, missing 32 contest thus far. In his nine outings, the 32-year-old has been a non-factor, recording zero points and a mere one shot on goal per game.

Ruutu will be a healthy scratch for Saturday's game against the Stars, Tom Gulitti of The Record reports.

EDGE Analysis

Ruutu missed the Devils' last two games due to an illness, but has apparently recovered from the ailment, and will simply be a healthy scratch for Saturday's matchup with Dallas. The 32-year-old winger has failed to tally a single point in eight games this season.

Ruutu (illness) stayed back in New Jersey ahead of Wednesday's road date with the Senators, Rich Chere of the Newark Star-Ledger reports.

EDGE Analysis

After Wednesday night, the Devils will head back home to prepare for their next game Saturday against the Stars. We believe the Devils will provide an update on his status ahead of that contest.

Ruutu is still dealing with an illness that will keep him out Tuesday night, when the Devils host the Hurricanes, Rich Chere of the Newark Star-Ledger reports.

EDGE Analysis

The Devils face the Hurricanes twice in as many days, and Ruutu should be considered day-to-day ahead of Wednesday's match. He's still looking for his first point this season as a fractured foot sustained in late October is largely the reason why he's been limited to eight games this campaign.

Ruutu did not practice Monday due to an illness, and his status for Tuesday remains unclear, Tom Gulitti of The Record reports.

EDGE Analysis

Ruutu's availability for Tuesday's game will depend on how he feels in the morning. As of now, he's likely questionable for the contest, but expect an update at some point Tuesday confirming his status.
