Free Agent Tootoo Attending Devils' Training Camp

News: Jordin Tootoo will attend the Devils' training camp on a professional tryout basis, Rich Chere of the Newark Star-Ledger reports.
Analysis: While the odds of Jordin Tootoo landing a spot on an NHL roster are slim, Devils GM Lou Lamoriello apparently likes what he sees in him. "He's a different dimension type of player," Lamoriello said. "He's exciting, he bangs and hits. It's intriguing. He played against us and he got my attention when he played for Nashville." Even if he does manage to win himself a job this season, it will likely be as a third- or fourth-line agitator, which does not warrant much attention in most fantasy formats. Tootoo racked up just eight points in 53 games playing for Detroit over the past two seasons.

Free Agent Tootoo Still Looking For Work

News: Jordin Tootoo is unlikely to re-sign with the Predators, Joshua Cooper of The Tennessean reports.
Analysis: Jordin Tootoo, who became an unrestricted free agent in June when the Red Wings bought out his contract, is likely not a good fit to re-join the Preds, as the team has already made several free-agent pickups this summer to bolster depth. Tootoo recorded just a single assist in 11 games for Detroit last season, and spent most of his time in the AHL. His best days as an NHL forward - and viable fantasy option - are likely behind him at this point.

Red Wings Buy Out Tootoo

News: Jordin Tootoo's contract was officially bought out by the Red Wings on Friday, ESPN reports.
Analysis: Jordin Tootoo cleared waivers Thursday, enabling the team to officially buy him out of the $2 million he's owed next season. He appeared in only 11 NHL games last season, tallying one assist.

Red Wings' Tootoo Placed On Buyout Waivers

News: Jordin Tootoo was placed on waivers on Wednesday for the purposes of a buyout, Bob McKenzie of TSN reports.
Analysis: Jordin Tootoo played in just 11 games in 2013-14 for the Red Wings, recording just a single point (an assist). His contract with the Red Wings ran through next season, but they obviously felt he wasn't worth the money he was due to make. Once Tootoo clears waivers, the team will be able to buy out his contract, making him a free agent.

Red Wings Return Tootoo To AHL

News: Jordin Tootoo was reassigned to AHL Grand Rapids on Tuesday.
Analysis: The transaction would seem to suggest that Todd Bertuzzi (lower body) should be ready to play Tuesday vs. the Maple Leafs. Jordin Tootoo appeared in just one game after being recalled Mar. 15, logging 7:20 of ice time in Sunday's loss to the Blackhawks.

Wings' Tootoo Recalled From AHL

News: The Red Wings recalled Jordin Tootoo on Saturday to replace Todd Bertuzzi following his lower-body injury, Chuck Pleiness of the Macomb Daily reports.
Analysis: Jordin Tootoo will likely be a temporary replacement for Bertuzzi while he recovers from the injury. The 31-year-old has played 10 games with Detroit this season and only tallied one point.

Wings Reassign Tootoo

News: Jordin Tootoo was reassigned to AHL Grand Rapids on Monday, MLive.com's Ansar Khan reports.
Analysis: With the Red Wings gradually getting healthier at the forward spot, Jordin Tootoo will return to the minors to make way. The rough-and-tumble fourth-liner has only one point in 10 games, but has supplied 25 hits and five penalty minutes.

Wings' Tootoo Recalled From AHL

News: Jordin Tootoo was recalled from AHL Grand Rapids on Wednesday.
Analysis: With Justin Abdelkader (head) out indefinitely, the Wings added Jordin Tootoo for some depth along the wing. Tootoo recorded 30 points (6G, 24A) with the Predators in 2011-12, but he's notched just eight points (3G, 5A) in 50 games since joining Detroit.

Wings' Tootoo Send Down To AHL

News: Jordin Tootoo was reassigned to AHL Grand Rapids on Thursday, Ansar Khan of MLive.com reports.
Analysis: Jordin Tootoo is averaging just over seven minutes and hasn't recorded a point in eight games to this point, so his absence is unlikely to be felt in fantasy land. The team also sent down Xavier Ouellet, as it appears they're clearing room for the eventual returns of Jonathan Ericsson (shoulder) and Brendan Smith (shoulder).

Detroit's Tootoo Clears Waivers

News: Jordin Tootoo cleared waivers Thursday, but remains with the Red Wings for now, the Detroit Free Press reports.
Analysis: The Red Wings have 10 games or 30 days to send him down to the AHL to save cap room, but with a couple lingering injuries, they'll keep him up in the bigs for a few more games. He will head to Grand Rapids when Jonathan Ericsson returns, however.

Wings Waive Tootoo

News: The Red Wings placed Jordin Tootoo on waivers Wednesday, Bob McKenzie of TSN reports.
Analysis: Once he clears waivers, he'll be assigned to AHL Grand Rapids, where he'll continue to be a candidate for an in-season call up as the season moves forward.

Red Wings' Tootoo To Return Saturday

News: Jordin Tootoo (shoulder) will return to action Saturday against the Flyers, MLive.com's Ansar Khan reports.
Analysis: Jordin Tootoo has spent all four of the Red Wings' games in the press box with the shoulder injury, but it seems he's now ready to make his season debut. He'll work on the fourth line Saturday with Drew Miller and Luke Glendening.

Wings' Tootoo (Shoulder) Won't Be In Lineup Thursday

News: Jordin Tootoo (shoulder) has been cleared to play but will not be in the lineup Thursday against Phoenix, MLive.com reports.
Analysis: The team's medical staff gave Jordin Tootoo the green light to play Wednesday, but coach Mike Babcock said the only lineup change for Thursday's game will be along the fourth line, with Mikael Smauelsson replacing Tomas Tatar. At this point, there's really no telling when Tootoo will make his season debut.

Wings' Tootoo Cleared To Play

News: Jordin Tootoo (shoulder) was medically cleared to play Thursday, Helene St. James of the Detroit Free Press reports.
Analysis: Jordin Tootoo hasn't been activated off IR quite yet but there's certainly still time for the team to do so before Thursday's game against the Coyotes. The winger recorded three goals and five assists in 42 games last season, and should play a depth role once he returns.

Wings' Tootoo Skates Monday

News: Jordin Tootoo practiced with the team Monday, though he didn't have a spot on a line.
Analysis: Jordin Tootoo may or may not have a roster spot when he gets back, as the Red Wings have a glut of forwards and Darren Helm is a more likely candidate to stick around. The fact that Tootoo is getting healthy at least gives Detroit options, though.

Wings' Tootoo To IR

News: Jordin Tootoo (shoulder) will likely be placed on injured reserve retroactive to Sept. 19, Mlive.com's Ansar Khan reports.
Analysis: Jordin Tootoo has been working his way back from a shoulder injury, so the team will give him some extra time to recover by placing him on IR. Because it will be a retroactive transaction, he will be eligible to be activated at any time.

Wings' Tootoo (Shoulder) Gets More On-Ice Work Saturday

News: Jordin Tootoo (shoulder) was on the ice during Saturday's practice but did not participate in any drills, MLive.com reports.
Analysis: With Jordin Tootoo not yet cleared for full activities, it seems likely that he could start the season on injured reserve, although it likely wouldn't be for a lengthy term. Tootoo indicated prior to Saturday's session that he was feeling about 85 to 90 percent healthy, so it should only take a few more skates before the Red Wings feel comfortable bringing him onto the active roster.

Red Wings' Tootoo Returns To Practice

News: Jordin Tootoo (shoulder) returned to practice Friday, MLive.com reports.
Analysis: Jordin Tootoo has been sidelined since suffering the injury Sept. 19, but he was able to return to action Friday. Tootoo will be reevaluated Saturday to see where he stands in his recovery, and if he has a chance to play in next week's season opener.

Wings' Tootoo To Miss Rest Of Preseason

News: Jordin Tootoo is expected to miss the remainder of the preseason with a bruised shoulder, MLive.com reports.
Analysis: The Red Wings only have three remaining preseason games, but Jordin Tootoo is not expected to miss any time in the regular season. He will likely be battling for playing time as a reserve forward with the Red Wings.

Wings' Tootoo Returns Thursday

News: Jordin Tootoo is back in the lineup for the Wings on Thursday night, MLive.com reports.
Analysis: After a game in the press box against the Ducks on Monday, Jordin Tootoo is back in his usual depth role as the Wings wrap up their four-game road trip. Patrick Eaves will take a seat to accommodate Tootoo.

Tootoo A Healthy Scratch For Wings Wednesday

News: Jordin Tootoo was a healthy scratch in Calgary on Wednesday night, the Detroit Press Press reports.
Analysis: With Valtteri Filppula's return and the desire to have a more offense-laden lineup, Jordin Tootoo was sent to the press box. It's unclear if the move is simply a one-game adjustment, or if he'll need to push his way back into the mix on the fourth line in the coming days during practice.

Wings' Tootoo Picks Up A Point Thursday

News: Jordin Tootoo picked up an assist against the Blues on Thursday night, his first point through 10 games this season.
Analysis: With a plus-1 rating to this point along with 30 PIM, most of Jordin Tootoo's contributions on the fourth line are related to getting under the skin of the opposition and dropping the gloves. It doesn't appear as though he'll see nearly enough minutes to approach the 30-point level he reached during his final season with Nashville.

Motor City Welcome For Tootoo

News: Detroit has signed Jordin Tootoo to a three-year, $5.7 million contract according to TSN' Darren Dreger
Analysis: Jordin Tootoo is a solid checking forward who had a career-high 30 points in 77 games with Nashville this past season along with 92 penalty minutes. Expect him to find a steady role on Detroit's checking line.

Preds' Tootoo To Test Free Agent Waters

News: Jordin Tootoo is expected to become a free agent on July 1, according to the Tennessean.
Analysis: "I think it's pretty accurate, we talked to Nashville prior to the draft and it sounded like it wasn't going to be a fit," Jordin Tootoo's agent Kevin Epp said. "Jordin would have loved to stay there and play, but I don't think the opportunity was going to be there for him." Usually known for his ability to get under the opposition's skin, Tootoo showed more of a nose for the net this season, finishing with a career-high 30 points in 77 games. It shouldn't be hard to find a new home somewhere else in the NHL, but he will likely still be relegated to checking-line duty no matter where he plays.

Preds' Tootoo Returning Friday From Injury

News: Jordin Tootoo (upper body) practiced Thursday and is expected to play Friday against Detroit, The Tennessean reports.
Analysis: Jordin Tootoo was injured in a first period fight with Chicago's Brandon Bollig last Sunday and has missed the last two games. With a career-high 29 points already under his belt, he has a good shot of topping the 30-point plateau for the first time. He offers decent fantasy value in deeper formats.
