Fedor Anatolievich Tyutin (Russian: Фёдор Анатольевич Тютин, Fjodor Tjutin; born 19 July 1983) is a Russian professional ice hockey defenceman currently an unrestricted free agent who most recently played for the Colorado Avalanche of the National Hockey League (NHL). Tyutin was drafted in the second round, 40th overall by the New York Rangers in the 2001 NHL Entry Draft.
After his first professional season in his native Russia, with SKA Saint Petersburg in the then Russian Superleague (RSL) in the 2000–01 season, Tyutin impressed as a rookie as was selected by the Rangers in the 2001 NHL Entry Draft. On the back of his selection, Tyutin opted to return to the junior level and play one major junior CHL season with the Guelph Storm of the Ontario Hockey League. In the 2001–02 season with the Storm, Tyutin was a standout on the blueline, earning rookie of the month honours in November and leading the club amongst defenseman in scoring with 59 points in just 53 games to earn selection to the OHL and CHL All-Rookie Teams.
After one season in the OHL, Tyutin opted to return to continue his development in the Russian Superleague with Saint Petersburg and later Ak Bars Kazan. Tyutin started his North American professional career with the Hartford Wolf Pack, the American Hockey League (AHL) affiliate of the New York Rangers at the start of the 2003–04 season.
Tyutin made his NHL debut with the New York Rangers on 12 February 2004 against the Philadelphia Flyers. He recorded his first point four days later with an assist in a game against the Ottawa Senators. Nearly a month later, on 13 March 2004, Tyutin scored his first NHL goal, a shorthanded goal, against Roberto Luongo of the Florida Panthers. On 21 March 2004, he had his first multi-point game with two assists against the Pittsburgh Penguins.
He began the 2004–05 season, during the NHL lockout, with the Hartford Wolfpack. In 13 games, he tallied two goals, one assist, and ten penalty minutes. After his brief stint with the Wolfpack, Tyutin returned to Russia to play in the Russian Superleague (RSL) for his old team, SKA Saint Petersburg.
Tyutin rejoined the Rangers for the start of the 2005–06 NHL season, he skated in 77 games with the Rangers, registering six goals and 19 assists for 25 points, along with 58 penalty minutes. Among team defensemen, he ranked first in power play goals (four), tied for first in goals (six) and was second in scoring with 25 points. On August 2, 2006, Tyutin signed a two-year contract extension with the New York Rangers.
On February 17, 2008, Tyutin signed a four-year contract extension with the Rangers worth $11.375 million. In the immediate off-season, on July 2, 2008, Tyutin was traded with Christian Bäckman to the Columbus Blue Jackets for Nikolai Zherdev and Dan Fritsche. He scored nine goals as well as adding 25 assists in his first season in Columbus.
On August 31, 2011, Tyutin signed a six-year contract extension with the Columbus Blue Jackets worth $27 million. During the 2012–13 NHL lockout, Tyutin played for Atlant Moscow of the Kontinental Hockey League.
After playing 8 seasons with the Blue Jackets, on June 29, 2016, the Blue Jackets bought out the remaining two-years of Tyutin's contract in order to clear salary cap space, as the team was pressed against the cap ceiling. He immediately became a free agent. On July 1, 2016, Tyutin was quickly signed on the opening day of free agency, agreeing to a one-year, $2 million contract to add a veteran presence for the Colorado Avalanche.
Signed with the intention of mentoring and playing alongside young countryman Nikita Zadorov, Tyutin began the 2016–17 season making his Avalanche debut in a 6-5 opening night victory over the Dallas Stars on October 15, 2016. He collected his first goal for the club, in a 3-1 defeat to the Florida Panthers on December 16, 2017. Tyutin played out the season with the bottom placed Avalanche, making 69 appearances with 12 assists to accompany his lone goal.
