Weight: 211

Born: 1989-2-14

Hometown: Naperville, IL

Drafted: 2007 2nd round 46th overall – Washington Capitals









March 2012 – Ruth is a stay-home, scrappy, and intense blue-liner trying to make his way through the many D-men prospects in the Blue Jackets system. Originally drafted in the second round to the Capitals, he developed his game in college at Notre Dame. He needs to improve his skating ability and develop a more solid defensive game in order to finally get his crack at the NHL. He is playing in his second season in the AHL for the Falcons.



Fantasy Outlook: D


Ruth is a hard-nosed defenseman that shows a lot of desire and grit, though ticket to NHL will be a tough road.
