Top Rasmus Kupari News

  • Jets' Rasmus Kupari: Returns from assignment

    Kupari was recalled from his conditioning assignment with AHL Manitoba on Friday.

    Kupari suited up for the Moose in Wednesday's 4-0 defeat to AHL Belleville, registering two shots and a minus-2 rating. With his legs seemingly back under him and his shoulder injury behind him, Kupari could challenge for a spot in the Jets' lineup, especially with Mark Scheifele suffering a lower-body injury against Chicago on Thursday.

  • Jets' Rasmus Kupari: Activated off IR, loaned to AHL

    Kupari (shoulder) was activated off injured reserve and subsequently sent to AHL Manitoba on a conditioning loan Tuesday.

    Kupari will presumably get into a few games with Manitoba before returning to the big club. He's picked up one assist through 15 top-level appearances this year.

  • Jets' Rasmus Kupari: Could play during California trip

    Kupari (shoulder) might be available to return during the Jets' upcoming two-game California road trip, John Lu of TSN reports Friday.

    Kupari's timeline will see him out for at least the next three games, which will bring his number of games missed to 21 at a minimum. In his 15 appearances this season, the 23-year-old Finn has managed just one helper while logging just 9:01 of ice time per game.

  • Jets' Rasmus Kupari: Ruled out through break

    Kupari (shoulder) will not be available until after the Christmas break, despite getting on the ice with a non-contact jersey Tuesday, Ken Wiebe of The Winnipeg Free Press reports.

    Kupari notched just one point in 15 games prior to getting hurt, so few fantasy players will be impacted by his continued absence. Even once given the all-clear, Kupari is far from a lock for the lineup on a nightly basis and could struggle for regular minutes.

  • Jets' Rasmus Kupari: Goes on injured reserve

    Kupari (shoulder) was placed on injured reserve Wednesday.

    Kupari is set to miss 4-6 weeks after sustaining the injury Tuesday versus the Devils, so this move was expected. Axel Jonsson-Fjallby was called up from AHL Manitoba to replace Kupari on the active roster. Kupari's picked up just one assist through 15 games this season, so fantasy managers shouldn't need to track his status.

  • Jets' Rasmus Kupari: Will miss 4-6 weeks

    Kupari (shoulder) is facing a 4-6 week absence according to associate coach Scott Arniel, Ken Wiebe of The Winnipeg Free Press reports Wednesday.

    Kupari is currently mired in a 13-game pointless streak and has yet to find the back of the net this season. As such, his extended absence is unlikely to impact the majority of fantasy players. David Gustafsson figures to slot into a fourth-line role with Kupari on the shelf. Given his expected extended absence, Kupari will almost certainly find himself on injured reserve in the coming days.

  • Jets' Rasmus Kupari: Dealing with shoulder injury

    Kupari sustained a shoulder injury Tuesday versus the Devils, John Lu of TSN reports.

    The severity of Kupari's injury won't be known until he undergoes further testing Wednesday. David Gustafsson is the most likely player to replace him in the lineup.

  • Jets' Rasmus Kupari: Suffers upper-body injury

    Kupari (upper body) won't finish Tuesday's game versus the Devils.

    Kupari played just 1:18 in this contest before he appeared to hurt his right hand or wrist while crashing into the boards. The Jets dressed just 11 forwards Tuesday. If Kupari misses time, David Gustafsson will almost certainly return to the lineup, and the team could add another forward on a call-up. Kupari has struggled with one assist through 15 outings in a fourth-line role this season.

  • Jets' Rasmus Kupari: Agrees to two-year contract

    Kupari, who was a restricted free agent, signed a two-year, $2 million deal with the Jets on Wednesday.

    Kupari was acquired from LA on June 27 as part of the deal that sent Pierre-Luc Dubois to the Kings. Kupari had three goals, 15 points and 80 hits in 66 outings last season. The 23-year-old is likely to open the 2023-24 campaign on Winnipeg's fourth line.

  • Jets' Rasmus Kupari: Sent to Jets

    Winnipeg acquired Kupari, Alex Iafallo, Gabriel Vilardi and Montreal's second-round pick in the 2024 NHL Entry Draft from the Kings on Tuesday in exchange for Pierre-Luc Dubois.

    Kupari chipped in three goals, 80 hits and a career-high 15 points in 66 games last season. He averaged 10:06 of ice time, mostly playing on Los Angeles' fourth line. The 23-year-old forward should be penciled in for a similar role with the Jets in 2023-24.

  • Kings' Rasmus Kupari: Ends season on 11-game point slump

    Kupari didn't record a point over the Kings' final 11 regular-season games.

    Kupari finished the 2022-23 campaign with three goals and 15 points in 66 outings. He averaged just 10:06 of ice time, so it's not surprising that his offensive contributions were limited. Going into LA's first-round series against Edmonton, Kupari is projected to continue serving on the fourth line.

  • Kings' Rasmus Kupari: Sends two more helpers

    Kupari logged two assists and five shots on goal in Monday's 8-2 win over the Flames.

    Kupari has four helpers over his last three contests, riding the success of linemate Carl Grundstrom. The 23-year-old Kupari's three-game point streak is the longest of his young career. The center has three tallies, 12 assists, 42 shots on net, 68 hits, 28 blocked shots and a minus-2 rating through 55 outings this season.

  • Kings' Rasmus Kupari: Helpers in back-to-back games

    Kupari logged an assist and three hits in Saturday's 3-2 shootout loss to the Canucks.

    Kupari has an assist in each of his last two games, but he's earned just six helpers without a goal in 17 contests since the All-Star break. The 23-year-old fourth-liner has 13 points through 54 contests, matching his career-high point total from 57 games a year ago. He's added 37 shots on net, 68 hits and a minus-4 rating this season.

  • Kings' Rasmus Kupari: Contributes assist in win

    Kupari logged an assist and went plus-2 in Thursday's 4-1 win over the Blue Jackets.

    Kupari also impressed at the faceoff dot, winning nine of his 10 draws. The 23-year-old still hasn't scored in 28 games, adding just six helpers and a minus-5 rating over that span while logging fourth-line minutes. He's at 12 points -- one off his career high -- with 37 shots on net, 65 hits, 28 blocked shots and a minus-5 rating through 53 outings overall.

  • Kings' Rasmus Kupari: Draws helper Saturday

    Kupari supplied an assist and blocked two shots in Saturday's 4-2 win over the Blues.

    Kupari hasn't scored since Jan. 3, and he's managed just five helpers over 23 games since that date. The 22-year-old's fourth-line role has likely contributed to his scoring troubles, so fantasy managers shouldn't expect much consistency from the young center. He's at 11 points, 33 shots on net, 58 hits, 26 blocked shots and a minus-6 rating through 48 outings this season.

  • Kings' Rasmus Kupari: Summoned from AHL

    Kupari was recalled from AHL Ontario on Saturday.

    Kupari was temporarily loaned to the minors Friday to make him eligible for the AHL playoffs. He has 10 points, 33 shots on goal and 57 hits in 47 games this season. Kupari is slated to center the fourth line Saturday versus the Blues.

  • Kings' Rasmus Kupari: Sent to AHL

    Kupari was reassigned to AHL Ontario on Friday, CapFriendly reports.

    Kupari was likely demoted as a paper move to make him eligible for the AHL playoffs. The 22-year-old has 10 points in 47 top-level appearances this season and should be back with the big club for Saturday's game against St. Louis.

  • Kings' Rasmus Kupari: Contributes assist

    Kupari provided an assist in Friday's 3-2 win over the Islanders.

    Kupari ended a five-game point drought when he set up an Arthur Kaliyev goal in the second period. It's been 19 contests since Kupari scored a goal -- his chances on offense are limited since he plays on the fourth line, but at least he has a regular spot in the lineup. He's at 10 points, 30 shots on net, 54 hits and a minus-4 rating through 44 outings this season.

  • Kings' Rasmus Kupari: Manages two helpers

    Kupari produced two assists and went plus-2 in Saturday's 6-0 win over the Penguins.

    Kupari helped out on first-period tallies by Jaret Anderson-Dolan and Alex Iafallo. The pair of assists snapped a 10-game point drought for Kupari, who has struggled to do much scoring in a fourth-line role. The 22-year-old center is at nine points, 27 shots on net, 49 hits, 22 blocked shots and a minus-3 rating through 38 outings, so he can probably be left on the waiver wire in most redraft formats.
