    News

    The Blackhawks placed Tootoo (upper body) on long-term injured reserve Tuesday, Tracey Myers of NBC Sports Chicago reports.

    Impact

    Tootoo could return to the big club later this season, but even if he's able to do so, he won't be stepping into a role that will make him a viable fantasy option. The gritty winger can be ignored in all formats.

    News

    The Blackhawks placed Tootoo (undisclosed) on long-term injured reserve Tuesday.

    Impact

    The nature of Tootoo's ailment remains a mystery, but it became clear that he wouldn't have a meaningful role with the Blackhawks this season after he was waived by the team Monday, so this move makes a lot of sense for Chicago financially. It wouldn't be surprising to see Tootoo announce his retirement after the 2017-18 campaign.

    News

    Tootoo was waived by Chicago on Monday, Rick Ralph of TSN 1290 Winnipeg reports.

    Impact

    Though Tootoo managed to score 30 points in 2011-12, he's been a grinding, energy guy for the entirety of his career. With the league trending towards youth, speed and skill, there isn't much room in the NHL for the 34-year-old. If the former Predator goes unclaimed, he'll likely be assigned to AHL Rockford for the start of the season.
