Blackhawks' Versteeg Likely Back In

News: Kris Versteeg will likely rejoin the lineup for Saturday's game in Dallas, Judd Sirott of 720 WGN reports.
Analysis: A healthy scratch for Wednesday's game against the Rangers, Kris Versteeg skated with Byran Bickell and Brad Richards on the third line at Friday's practice. Andrew Shaw will likely slide back to the fourth line, with Joakim Nordstrom a probable healthy scratch.

Hawks' Versteeg A Late Scratch

News: Kris Versteeg has been scratched for Wednesday's matchup against the Rangers, Mark Lazerus of the Chicago Sun-Times reports.
Analysis: Kris Versteeg will join Daniel Carcillo and Michal Rozsival on the Blackhawks' list of scratches. The 5-10 winger has recorded just one point in his last eight contests.

Blackhawks' Versteeg Rejoining Lineup

News: Kris Versteeg will rejoin the lineup for Tuesday's game against the Islanders, Mark Lazerus of the Chicago Sun-Times reports.
Analysis: It was expected that the slumping Kris Versteeg would be a healthy scratch, but he'll apparently stick in the lineup. If his struggles continue, it's possible he could still get a night off sometime soon.

Hawks' Versteeg Looks Like Healthy Scratch Tuesday

News: Kris Versteeg did not skate with the top lines at Monday's practice and is expected to be a healthy scratch for the Blackhawks' game on Tuesday against the Islanders, Chicago Tribune reports.
Analysis: Kris Versteeg has not scored a goal in seven games and struggled in the Blackhawks' last game on Saturday against the Sharks. This is probably another wake-up call by Hawks' coach Joel Quenneville. He recently benched Bryan Bickell so there is a good chance that Versteeg will be back on the ice on Wednesday against the Rangers. Despite the benching Versteeg's numbers are better than last season. He missed a big chunk of time this season with a hand injury, but still has 13 goals and 19 assists in 48 games. In 81 games last season between Chicago and Florida, Versteeg compiled 12 goals and 24 assists.

Hawks' Versteeg Assists On Man Advantage In Win

News: Kris Versteeg produced a power-play assist in Thursday's 2-1 over the Coyotes.
Analysis: Kris Versteeg connected with Brad Richards, who was parked directly in front of the net for the game-winning score. The assist was the first point from Versteeg since Feb. 24, but he's still enjoying a productive season with 32 points and a plus-13 rating through 47 games.

Hawks' Versteeg: Two Goals Since Returning

News: Kris Versteeg netted his 11th goal of the season in Wednesday's shootout loss to the Red Wings.
Analysis: Kris Versteeg, who returned from a broken hand last week, has tallied two goals in his first four games back. He's picked up ice time similar to what he received prior to the injury, but has yet to reclaim much involvement on the power play just yet. He should still provide enough scoring at even strength to help fantasy owners while he remains on a line with Brad Richards and the NHL's points leader, Patrick Kane.

Blackhawks Activate Versteeg For Wednesday's Game

News: Kris Versteeg (hand) was activated from long-term injured reserve and will play Wednesday against the Canucks, ESPN Chicago reports.
Analysis: Kris Versteeg skated on the third line with Andrew Shaw and Bryan Bickell during the Blackhawks' morning session, and figures to remain there for his first game since Jan. 1. Coach Joel Quenneville indicated that he's expecting Versteeg to contribute right away, so it wouldn't be unreasonable to see the forward log close to his usual 16 minutes of ice time immediately. In order to make room for Versteeg, who tallied nine goals and 18 assists in 34 games prior to the injury, the Blackhawks reassigned Joakim Nordstrom to AHL Rockford.

Chicago's Versteeg Eyeing Wednesday Return

News: Coach Joel Quenneville said Kris Versteeg (hand) will likely return to the lineup Wednesday against the Canucks, ESPN Chicago's Scott Powers reports.
Analysis: The Blackhawks are expected to formally activate Kris Versteeg, who has missed over a month with the injury, following Wednesday's morning skate. After he was able to resume practicing with the team last week, Versteeg appears to be back at full strength and should give the lineup a jolt upon his return. He notched nine goals and 18 assists over 34 games prior to going down with the injury.

Blackhawks' Versteeg Expected Back Next Week

News: Kris Versteeg (hand) will likely return for Wednesday's game against Vancouver or Friday's game against New Jersey, Chris Kuc of the Chicago Tribune reports.
Analysis: Kris Versteeg practiced in a non-contract jersey Thursday, and he's expected to resume contact work within the next few days. With 27 points in 34 games, he was having arguably the most productive season of his career before he broke his hand.

Hawks' Versteeg Practices With Team Thursday

News: Kris Versteeg (hand) practiced with the team in a non-contact jersey Thursday, Mark Lazerus of the Chicago Sun-Times reports.
Analysis: Kris Versteeg continues to target a return to action next week, so his involvement in Thursday's practice seemingly aligns with that goal. He'll likely attempt to get in some contact work over the weekend or early next week before a return is considered.

Blackhawks' Versteeg About A Week Away

News: Coach Joel Quenneville said he expects to have Kris Versteeg available early in the Blackhawks' homestand that begins Feb. 9, Tracey Myers of CSN Chicago reports.
Analysis: Kris Versteeg will miss the final three games of the team's current road trip, but he continues to skate on his own back in Chicago. He suffered the hand fracture back on Jan. 1 after absorbing a shot, but seems to be recovering well following a surgical procedure. The impending return would represent a boon for the Blackhawks, who had been using Versteeg as a top-six player at certain points this season. He's collected nine goals and 27 points over 34 games.

Blackhawks' Versteeg Not Expected For Road Trip

News: Kris Versteeg (hand) isn't expected to play during the Blackhawks' six-game road trip that kicks off Wednesday in Los Angeles, Eric Lear of Blackhawks TV reports.
Analysis: Kris Versteeg instead remained in Chicago, taking to the ice Wednesday morning for conditioning work. Because he's dealing with a fractured hand rather than a lower-body ailment, Versteeg's presence on the ice won't mean much until he's cleared to absorb contact.

Kris Versteeg

Blackhawks Place Versteeg (Hand) On LTIR

News: Kris Versteeg (hand) was placed on long-term injured reserve Sunday, ESPN Chicago reports.
Analysis: Kris Versteeg has been out with the fractured hand since Jan. 1 and doesn't appear to be close to a return just yet. Forward Dennis Rasmussen was recalled from AHL Rockford in a corresponding move.

Chicago's Versteeg Still Sidelined

News: Kris Versteeg, who underwent surgery after suffering a left hand injury back on Jan. 1, could miss more time than initially estimated, Chris Kuc of the Chicago Tribune reports.
Analysis: Originally, the estimate was that Kris Versteeg would be sidelined for about four weeks, but coach Joel Quenneville acknowledged Wednesday that "it's probably going to be a little bit more than that."

Blackhawks' Versteeg (Hand) Set To Miss A Month

News: Kris Versteeg is expected to miss about a month due to his left hand injury, Chris Kuc of the Chicago Tribune reports.
Analysis: The long-term nature of the injury prompted the team to promote top prospect Teuvo Teravainen from AHL Rockford, though it's likely that Patrick Sharp will get the first crack at filling in for Kris Versteeg on the second line. With nine goals and 18 assists across 34 games, Versteeg had been in the midst of a resurgent year with the Blackhawks, but this latest setback may prevent him from delivering a 50-point season.

Blackhawks Versteeg "Could Be Out For A Bit"

News: The Blackhawks will not fully evaluate Kris Versteeg (hand) until retuning to Chicago on Friday, but head coach Joel Quenneville said following Thursday's game that Versteeg "could be out a bit."
Analysis: Kris Versteeg was forced from Thursday's game in the third period after suffering a left hand injury, and it appears he may be facing an extended absence. Expect Versteeg's status to be updated after the Blackhawks' medical staff is able to examine his injury.

Blackhawks' Versteeg Suffers Hand Injury

News: Kris Versteeg exited Thursday's game with a left hand injury, Dan Rosen of NHL.com reports.
Analysis: Kris Versteeg was forced to leave Thursday's game in the third period with the injury. Expect an update on his status as more details become available.

Hawks' Versteeg Adds Assist In Win

News: Kris Versteeg registered an assist in Saturday's win over the Avalanche.
Analysis: It's just the fourth point in 10 games for Kris Versteeg, who seems to have lost some steam after racking up 15 points in November. For the moment, he's still been able to retain a role on the Blackhawks' second line with Patrick Kane, which presents enough upside for fantasy owners to stay patient with him.

Kris Versteeg

Hawks' Versteeg Picks Up Three More Points

News: Kris Versteeg racked up a goal and two assists in Wednesday's 4-1 win over the Blues.
Analysis: Kris Versteeg looks to have finally recovered from blowing out his knee a couple years ago, and has experienced a scoring Renaissance since being paired with Patrick Kane and Brad Richards. The winger has seven points in his last three games, and is now at a point-per-game pace for the season, with eight goals and 13 assists in 21 games.

Blackhawks' Versteeg Has Two Assists In Win

News: Kris Versteeg assisted on both of Brad Richards' goals in a 4-1 win over the Kings on Saturday.
Analysis: Kris Versteeg is a vastly-improved player in his second stint with Chicago. He now has four assists in his past two games and 11 points in his past seven games. He's struggled in the past few seasons, bouncing from team to team, but has finally re-discovered his scoring touch in Chicago and showing some real chemistry with Richards. He's on pace to score at least 60 points this season, which would be a career-high.

Blackhawks' Versteeg Sets Up Kane Twice

News: Kris Versteeg assisted on a pair of Patrick Kane goals and was a plus-3 in Friday's win over the Ducks.
Analysis: Kris Versteeg has found a home alongside Kane on the second line, recording four goals and nine points in his last six games. The 28-year-old now has 16 points in 19 games on the season, to go with a plus-8 rating. Given his current position on the Hawks' depth chart, Versteeg is definitely worth a look right now.

Kris Versteeg, RW, CHI Hawks' Versteeg Scores Seventh Goal

Hawks' Versteeg Scores Seventh Goal

News: Kris Versteeg scored for the third time in four games in Sunday's loss to Vancouver.
Analysis: Life alongside Patty Kane is pretty sweet. Kris Versteeg is thriving on the second line, collecting three goals and seven points in his last four games. He is also playing on the Hawks' top power-play unit, where he tipped in a Duncan Keith shot Sunday. With seven goals on the season, Versteeg is worth adding, at least until Patrick Sharp (leg) returns from injury.

Hawks' Versteeg Thriving In Second-Line Role

News: Kris Versteeg scored his sixth goal of the season and added an assist in Saturday's win over the Oilers.
Analysis: Kris Versteeg continues to produce on the second line with Patrick Kane, recording two goals and five points in his last three games. With Patrick Sharp (leg) sidelined, Versteeg is seeing plenty of quality ice time time at even strength and on the power play. With 13 points and a plus-7 rating in 16 games on the season, Versteeg is definitely worth a look right now.

Blackhawks' Versteeg Racks Up Three Points

News: Kris Versteeg scored a goal, had two assists, and was credited with seven shots on goal in Sunday's win over Dallas.
Analysis: With Patrick Sharp sidelined with a leg injury, Vertseeg has been making bank on the second line, netting two goals and five points in his last four games. The fact he has 10 points (five goals) in 14 games makes him worthy of a look, especially if you're in a deeper league. Kris Versteeg should continue to produce at even strength on the second line, but also on the power play, where he lines up on the second unit alongside Marian Hossa.

Hawks' Versteeg Credited With Sunday's Goal

News: Kris Versteeg has been given credit for a goal on Sunday against the Sharks that was initially credited to Trevor van Riemsdyk, CBS Sports reports.
Analysis: After a review, the NHL announced Monday that van Riemsdyk's slap shot hit Kris Versteeg, who was parked in front of Sharks goalie Antti Niemi, before going into the goal. Versteeg has four goals and two assists this season after the scoring change. With Patrick Sharp out for a couple more weeks, the Blackhawks are looking for Versteeg to pick up some of the scoring slack.
