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

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, RW, CHI Hawks' Versteeg Picks Up Three More Points

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.

11/29/2014

Kris Versteeg, RW, CHI Blackhawks' Versteeg Has Two Assists In Win

Kris Versteeg

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

Kris Versteeg

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.

Kris Versteeg

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.

Versteeg Racks Fantasy Stats As 'Hawks Roll

News: Kris Versteeg scored two goals on three shots, went plus-2 and collected two PIM in Tuesday's 5-0 rout against Montreal.
Analysis: Kris Versteeg hasn't been finding the scoresheet with regularity, as he's only pointed in three of his nine games this year. He's relevant only in deeper fantasy leagues while buried in the Hawks' bottom six.

Kris Versteeg

Chicago's Versteeg Nabs Two Points

News: Kris Versteeg registered a goal and assist in Thursday's shootout win over the Senators.
Analysis: Kris Versteeg helped give the Blackhawks a 2-1 lead in the first period, maneuvering around Erik Karlsson and a prone Craig Anderson before finding the back of the net. The winger has produced three points in six games for the Blackhawks since returning to the lineup last Tuesday after missing time with a lower-body injury.

Kris Versteeg

Blackhawks' Versteeg Scores First Of Season

News: Kris Versteeg netted his first goal of the season in Saturday's loss to St. Louis.
Analysis: It was a classic goal from Kris Versteeg, who took a pass from Patrick Sharp in the slot before beating Brian Elliott with a perfectly placed wrist shot. If he continues to skate on the second line, more points should start to follow. Take note, though, Versteeg isn't being used on the power play and is coming off a disappointment season where he managed just seven points in 18 games.

Blackhawks' Versteeg To Play Tuesday

News: Kris Versteeg (lower body) will play in Tuesday's game against the Flyers, ESPN Chicago reports.
Analysis: Kris Versteeg will make his season debut after recovering from a lower body injury that kept him sidelined the last two weeks. He will likely line up as part of the Blackhawks' second line Tuesday night.

Hawks' Versteeg Expected In Lineup Tuesday

News: Kris Versteeg (lower body) said that he expects to be in the lineup Tuesday at home against the Flyers, the Chicago Tribune reports.
Analysis: Kris Versteeg has not played in the Blackhawks' first four games, but is actually ahead of schedule. He skated with the second line on Monday, alongside Patrick Kane and center Andrew Shaw.

Hawks' Versteeg Skates

News: Kris Versteeg (lower body) practiced with the team Monday.
Analysis: The winger has yet to suit up this season, but will likely be back in action Tuesday against the Flyers. Kris Versteeg skated on the second line at Monday's practice alongside Andrew Shaw and Patrick Kane. If that is indeed how the lines shake out for Tuesday, expect Brandon Saad to be bumped down to the third line and Jeremy Morin to end up watching from the press box.

Chicago's Versteeg To Be Reevaluated Monday

News: Kris Versteeg (lower body) will be reevaluated by the Blackhawks' medical staff Monday, Tracey Myers of CSN Chicago reports.
Analysis: Kris Versteeg has been skating for the last few days and joined the Blackhawks for Saturday's morning session, but he's still awaiting clearance to participate in full practices. With coach Joel Quenneville suggesting that Versteeg is ahead of his recovery timetable, it's possible he could be given the go-ahead to practice immediately after Monday's checkup.

Hawks' Versteeg Resumes Skating

News: Kris Versteeg (lower body) was skating before Friday's practice and will be on the ice for morning skate Saturday, CSN Chicago reports.
Analysis: Kris Versteeg was injured during a practice Oct. 7 and was expected to be out for three weeks, which would put his return at the end of the month. "He skated well today and he feels real good," coach Joel Quenneville said. "He's made significant improvement." If you go by the original timetable, Versteeg would be back for the Oct. 28 game against the Ducks at home.

Blackhawks' Versteeg Could Skate This Weekend

News: Head coach Joel Quenneville hopes Kris Versteeg (lower body) will be able to resume skating this weekend, CSN's Tracey Myers reports.
Analysis: It's not clear what exactly is ailing Kris Versteeg, but if he is able to skate this weekend, he could suit up for the Blackhawks before the end of the month.

Kris Versteeg

Hawks' Versteeg Could Skate Soon

News: Kris Versteeg (lower body) is close to getting back on the ice, ESPN Chicago reports.
Analysis: If Kris Versteeg can return to the ice this week, that would probably mean that he's way ahead of schedule for a return. The winger is coming off a disappointing 2013-14 campaign, but had a solid preseason this year that he'll try to parlay into increased offensive production upon his return.

Hawks' Versteeg Reports Improvement

News: Kris Versteeg (lower body) reported Saturday that his condition is improving, but said he still remains a few weeks away from a return, ESPN Chicago reports.
Analysis: Kris Versteeg is expected to return to the ice at some point next week, when the Blackhawks will begin easing him back into a full workload. Ben Smith is expected to occupy Versteeg's spot in the lineup until he's deemed ready for a return.

Chicago's Versteeg To Miss Three Weeks

News: Kris Versteeg (lower body) will be sidelined for about three weeks, Chris Kuc of the Chicago Tribune reports.
Analysis: Coach Joel Quenneville said that Kris Versteeg wouldn't require surgery or spot on long-term injured reserve, but it's tough news to take after the veteran forward turned in a top-notch training camp. The Blackhawks value Versteeg for his versatility on the penalty-kill and at even strength, attributes that are often difficult to quantify in the fantasy game. With Versteeg out of the picture for multiple weeks, the Blackhawks will turn to Ben Smith to step in and fill the void in their bottom-six.

Chicago's Versteeg Nicked Up

News: Kris Versteeg has a lower-body injury and will be reevaluated Wednesday, Tracey Myers of CSNChicago.com reports.
Analysis: It's not known how the injury occurred at Tuesday's practice, but coach Joel Quenneville said that Kris Versteeg's ailment wasn't related to his surgically-repaired knee. Still, it's yet another ailment in what has been a rough-and-tumble training camp for Versteeg, who took a shot off his ankle and missed time due to an illness a few weeks back. Coach Joel Quenneville didn't provide much information on Versteeg's latest injury beyond suggesting that "it didn't look good," which wouldn't seem to create much optimism that he'll be available for Thursday's opener against the Stars.
