Mike Rupp, who tallied four points and 79 PIMs in 40 games during the 2012-13 season, should be ready for the start of the 2013-14 campaign. (Updated 5/11/13).
Mike Rupp tallied five points 60 games last year, but his career-high is 19, as Rupp has never been a big scorer. The 32-year-old winger's value primarily comes from his toughness, as evidenced by his average of 119.25 penalty minutes per-season over the past four years. An experienced checking forward, Rupp won't provide much scoring to owners in 2012-13, but he does serve a purpose for owners in leagues that count penalty minutes as a category. (Updated 8/14/12)
