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.

Kris Versteeg

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.

Hawks' Versteeg Makes Hits Ice In Preseason

News: Kris Versteeg, who missed the first three exhibition games because of the flu, was on the ice on Sunday in the 5-0 exhibition victory over the Oilers, the Chicago Tribune reports.
Analysis: Kris Versteeg looked good with a goal and an assist against Edmonton. The Blackhawks are looking for more from Versteeg in 2014-15 after returning to the team last season. He had 12 goals and 24 assists in 81 games between Florida and Chicago for the 2013-14 season.

Blackhawks' Versteeg Returns To Ice

News: Kris Versteeg (illness) returned to practice Thursday, Tracey Myers of CSNChicago.com reports.
Analysis: Kris Versteeg had missed Wednesday's session with the flu, but doesn't look as though he'll face any further limitations in training camp.

Blackhawks' Versteeg Feeling Ill

News: Kris Versteeg is sick with the flu and will not play in Thursday's preseason game against the Red Wings, Chris Kuc of the Chicago Tribune reports.
Analysis: Coach Joel Quenneville noted that he doesn't expect Kris Versteeg to miss much practice time as a result of the illness, giving him plenty of time to get conditioning work in for the start of the regular season. Versteeg's role is in some question entering the season, as his poor showing in the playoffs has him fighting with a slew of players for a bottom-six role.

Blackhawks' Versteeg Active For Game 7

News: Kris Versteeg is active for Sunday's Game 7 against the Kings, WGN Radio reports.
Analysis: Kris Versteeg's time was limited during Game 6 after he committed a crucial error in the second period, and coach Joel Quenneville would not confirm whether or not he would be scratched for Game 7. It appears he's opted to keep Versteeg active, while Sheldon Brookbank sits out as a healthy scratch.

Hawks' Versteeg Could Be Healthy Scratch Friday

News: Kris Versteeg saw little to no ice time in Game 5 after he coughed up the puck in the Hawks' zone in the second period and could be a healthy scratch for Friday's Game 6, ESPN Chicago reports.
Analysis: Kris Versteeg's playoff return with the Hawks has been a bumpy one. He's minus-5 for the postseason, including minus-4 in the series against the Kings. Blackhawks coach Joel Quenneville was noncommittal about whether Versteeg would skate in Game 6. "It was a tough night, the one shift in particular," Quenneville said Thursday. "You just got to battle through it. It's a competitive game, not a lot of time, not a lot of space. You've got to do whatever you can to advance the puck and contribute."

Hawks' Versteeg Scores First Of Playoffs

News: Kris Versteeg scored the Blackhawks' only regulation goal in Tuesday's 2-1 series-clinching overtime win against the Wild.
Analysis: He'd only collected two points -- both assists -- in his eight games during this postseason entering Thursday, but Kris Versteeg's early-first-period unassisted tally proved to be a huge one for the Blackhawks.

Kris Versteeg

Versteeg Returns To Hawks' Lineup

News: Kris Versteeg is slated to return to the Hawks' lineup for Sunday's Game 5 against the Wild, csnchicago.com reports.
Analysis: Kris Versteeg, who last suited up for the Hawks on May 6, skated on a line with Bryan Bickell and Jonathan Toews on Sunday morning. He re-enters the team's forward mix with two assists in seven postseason contests.

Hawks' Versteeg Scratched For Game 4

News: Kris Versteeg will be a healthy scratch for Game 4 against the Wild on Friday, ESPN-AM 1000 in Chicago reports.
Analysis: While Kris Versteeg missed Game 2 because of an illness, this appears to be a healthy scratch as Hawks coach Joel Quenneville is toying with his lineup after the 4-0 loss on Tuesday in Game 3. Versteeg only saw a little more than eight minutes of ice time in Game 3 and one shot on goal. Versteeg had two goals and two assists in the first two games of the series against the Blues, but has been quiet since that time.

Chicago's Versteeg Officially In Sunday

News: Kris Versteeg (illness) is officially in the lineup for Sunday's Game 2 against the Wild, Mark Lazerus of the Chicago Sun-Times reports.
Analysis: The initial report during pregame warmups was that Kris Versteeg would be scratched Sunday, but it evidently proved erroneous. Versteeg will play for the first time in two games, with Brandon Bollig bowing out of the lineup to make room for him.

Blackhawks Scratch Versteeg For Game 2

News: Updating a previous report, Kris Versteeg (illness) will be a scratch for Sunday's Game 2 against the Wild, NHL.com reports.
Analysis: Coach Joel Quenneville indicated after morning skate that Kris Versteeg would "likely" be back in after missing the past two games, but it appears the illness is still robbing him of some of his energy. Jeremy Morin will enter the lineup in his place.

Chicago's Versteeg Rejoins Lineup For Game 2

News: Kris Versteeg (illness) will be back in the lineup for Sunday's Game 2 against the Wild, Tracey Myers of CSN Chicago reports.
Analysis: Kris Versteeg has been out of the lineup for the Blackhawks' previous two playoff games -- the first time as a healthy scratch, and the second time for the illness. Now that he's seemingly healthy, he'll slot back in on the wing for the Blackhawks, but will probably be relegated to a bottom-six role.

Hawks' Versteeg Late Scratch For Game 1

News: Kris Versteeg (illness) was a late scratch for Game 1 against the Wild on Friday and it was not known whether he would be in the lineup for Game 2 on Sunday, ESPN Chicago reports.
Analysis: Kris Versteeg was a healthy scratch in Game 6 against the Blues, but this time it was illness related. Joakim Nordstrom replaced Versteeg in the lineup on Friday. Versteeg has two assists, a zero rating and averaged 14:46 of ice time in five playoff games this season. He had 10 goals, 19 assists and a plus-9 rating for the Blackhawks during the regular season after being acquired from the Florida Panthers in November.

Blackhawks' Versteeg Back In Lineup Friday

News: Kris Versteeg will rejoin the lineup again on Friday after being a healthy scratch in Game 7 against the Blues, Tracey Myers of CSN Chicago reports.
Analysis: Kris Versteeg has been struggling for production as of late, failing to record a point in any of the final three games he participated in against the Blues in the first round. The Blackhawks have decided to give him a second chance in the lineup on Friday, and he will look to take advantage of his playing time.

Hawks Scratch Versteeg

News: Kris Versteeg was a scratch Sunday against the Blues, Chris Kuc of the Chicago Tribune reports.

Chicago's Versteeg On Scoreboard

News: Kris Versteeg scored one of Chicago's three goals in Friday's 3-2 win over Carolina, just his third goal since January 17.
Analysis: Kris Versteeg has a point in each of the last two games, but he's not one of the players regularly contributing for the Blackhawks. He's seeing 13:40 a night and has not been shooting the puck much, but has 26 points in 52 games since his early-season trade from Florida.
