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.

Kris Versteeg

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.

Kris Versteeg

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.

Kris Versteeg

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.

Kris Versteeg

Hawks' Versteeg Comfortable In Role

News: Kris Versteeg has nine goals and 19 assists in 59 games through the Olympic break.
Analysis: The winger has found a home on the Hawks third line, where much less offensive production is expected of him than with the Panthers earlier in the year. He had four points in the six games leading into the break, and could be a good source of secondary scoring as the season winds down.

Blackhawks' Versteeg Ready To Play Sunday

News: Kris Versteeg (upper body) has received clearance to play Sunday vs. the Bruins, Chris Kuc of the Chicago Tribune reports.
Analysis: Kris Versteeg was forced out of Friday's game after the second period following a collision with teammate Bryan Bickell, but he passed all concussion tests Saturday morning and was a full participant in practice. He'll man his usual spot on the third line with Bickell and Michal Handzus on Sunday.

Hawks' Versteeg Injured Friday

News: Kris Versteeg (upper-body) did not return to the Blackhawks' bench to start the third period, Chris Kuc of the Chicago Tribune reports.
Analysis: Kris Versteeg collided with teammate Bryan Bickell towards the end of the second period and was slow to get up. He did not return to the bench to start the third and Patrick Kane took his place on the third line. The exact nature of the injury is not yet known and he is considered day-to-day.

Hawks' Versteeg Provides Pair Of Points Friday

News: Kris Versteeg had a goal and assist in Friday's win over the Avalanche.
Analysis: Kris Versteeg's two points came after the Blackhawks were already leading 5-1 in the game, so his contributions weren't exactly difference-makers. Still, with five goals and six assists in 12 December contests, Versteeg is clearly thriving with the move from Florida to Chicago, as one might expect working with talented linemates like Michal Handzus and Patrick Kane.

Blackhawks' Versteeg Scores In Loss Friday

News: Kris Versteeg scored his seventh goal of the season during Friday's shootout loss to the Canucks.
Analysis: Kris Versteeg opened the scoring early in the first period and then registered another four shots on goal after that. He also missed the net completely late in the shootout. He did finish the night with a plus-1 rating and continues to play a stronng game for the Hawks. He has seven goals and 12 assists through 37 games this season.

Hawks' Versteeg Tallies Two In Win

News: Kris Versteeg tallied a goal and an assist in Wednesday's blowout win over the Flyers.
Analysis: After compiling only three points in his first 10 games with the Blackhawks after he was acquired in mid-November, Kris Versteeg appears to have finally found his niche on Chicago's second line of late. He's delivered six points in his last five contests.

Kris Versteeg

Two Points For Versteeg In Chicago Win

News: Kris Versteeg notched a goal and an assist in Friday's shootout loss to Anaheim, giving him three points in the last two games.
Analysis: Kris Versteeg was rescued from South Florida several weeks ago and has been solid in Chicago upon his return to the Second City with seven points through 12 games. Versteeg was a member of the 2010 Cup-winning side and should be a solid secondary scorer for the Blackhawks. Don't expect a point-per-game pace, but those in deeper leagues may want to employ his talents.

Blackhawks' Versteeg Tallies Two Points

News: Kris Versteeg scored his first goal since returning to Chicago, and he added an assist as well.
Analysis: Kris Versteeg has three points since rejoining the Blackhawks, and playing with better teammates could improve his numbers.

Hawks' Versteeg Makes Return Appearance

News: Kris Versteeg, who was reacquired on Thursday by the Blackhawks, made his Chicago return in Saturday's 7-2 loss to Nashville.
Analysis: With Marian Hossa out with a lower-body injury just before game time, Kris Versteeg saw time on the first line. He only skated for 14 minutes, but assisted on Brandon Pirri's third-period goal. Versteeg was in the dog house in Florida, so this move is looking like a great boost to his fantasy value. Versteeg should see his minutes increase over Saturday's modest total, particularly if Hossa misses significant time.

Versteeg Traded To Chicago

News: Kris Versteeg was traded from the Panthers to the Blackhawks on Thursday in exchange for Jimmy Hayes and Dylan Olsen, the Chicago Sun-Times' Mark Lazerus reports.
Analysis: Kris Versteeg was reportedly benched for a lack of effort earlier this season, and now he's been traded for a pair of prospects. The veteran wasn't a great fit on a rebuilding Florida squad. but may be rejuvenated by the move to a contender. Furthermore, Versteeg spent his first three NHL seasons in Chicago, so there should be some aspect of familiarity in his new home. With 212 points in 349 career games, Versteeg has the potential to be a valuable contributor for one of the better teams in the league.

Panthers' Versteeg Could Be Scratched Again

News: Kris Versteeg was not part of a regular line during Monday's practice, the Miami Herald reports.
Analysis: Although no official statement has been made, Kris Versteeg is apparently being disciplined by head coach Kevin Dineen for a lack of effort, and it's looking possible that he will be a healthy scratch for the second game in a row. Expect another update on Versteeg's status prior to the first puck being dropped Tuesday.

Panthers' Versteeg A Healthy Scratch

News: Kris Versteeg was a healthy scratch Saturday, the Miami Herald's George Richards reports.
Analysis: Coach Kevin Dineen said that he's making an example of Kris Versteeg, after the Panthers lost four consecutive games. Versteeg has five points through 13 contests, and will likely rejoin the lineup Tuesday against the Oilers. It doesn't sound like the veteran is in danger of losing any playing time beyond Saturday.

Panthers' Versteeg Cleared To Play

News: Kris Versteeg (knee) has been cleared to play, George Richards of the Miami Herald reports.
Analysis: Kris Versteeg will suit up Thursday against the Lightning for his first game since March 11. He only recorded two goals and two assists in 10 games for the Panthers last season before hurting his knee, so he hasn't exactly played much hockey recently. While he was certainly a valuable fantasy player in 2011-12, there's no telling how much effect the injury will have on his game for the upcoming season.
