On March 21, 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.

Tyutin skated in 77 games with the Rangers in the 2005–06 season, 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. In addition, Tyutin picked up one assist along with four penalty minutes in eight games for Team Russia at the 2006 Olympic Games in Turin, Italy.
