Impressive Postseason Ends For Blackhawks' Saad

News: Brandon Saad registered a goal and an assist in a losing effort in Sunday's Game 7 against the Kings.
Analysis: Though the Blackhawks weren't able to repeat as NHL champions, the team has to feel good about the 21-year-old Brandon Saad's emergence as a core offensive player. With 16 points (six goals, 10 assists) in the postseason, Saad finished behind only Patrick Kane and Jonathan Toews in scoring for the Blackhawks, while his plus-10 rating ranked tops on the team. He should be ready to assume a more pivotal scoring role for the Blackhawks during the 2014-15 regular season.

Saad Powers Blackhawks To Game 5 Victory

News: Brandon Saad registered a goal, two assists and finished with a plus-4 rating in Wednesday's Game 5 win over the Kings.
Analysis: The trio of Brandon Saad, Andrew Shaw and Patrick Kane proved bothersome to the Kings throughout the contest, with the line combining for nine points and 15 shots on goal. Saad's second assist was the game's most vital, as he scanned the middle of the ice and found an open Michal Handzus, who potted the game-winning goal in double overtime. With five goals, eight assists and a plus-9 rating over 17 postseason games, the 21-year-old Saad has been invaluable for the Blackhawks in their pursuit of a second straight Stanley Cup.

Saad Delivers Two Points For Blackhawks In Game 1

News: Brandon Saad had a goal and an assist in Sunday's Game 1 victory over the Kings.
Analysis: Brandon Saad kicked off the game's scoring six minutes in, finishing off a power-play opportunity for his third goal of the postseason. The 21-year-old will need to show he can be a consistent offensive force throughout a series; he was held pointless in the final three games of the first round against the Blues and the final four games of the second-round series with the Wild.

Hawks' Saad: Three Helpers In Two Games

News: Brandon Saad set up two goals in Saturday's OT loss to St. Louis.
Analysis: He has three helpers in two postseason games. It sure looks like that recent healthy scratch has lit a fire under him.

Two Helpers For Hawks' Saad

News: Brandon Saad picked up two assists in Saturday's loss to the Predators. They are the first points he has scored in three games since his recent healthy scratch.
Analysis: He has 47 points on the season, but had been in a serious slump before the benching. Hopefully this bounce-back is a signal he's more focused and ready for the postseason.

Saad To Return To Hawks' Lineup Wednesday

News: Brandon Saad will return to the Chicago lineup Wednesday against Montreal, Mark Lazerus of the Chicago Sun-Times reports.
Analysis: Brandon Saad, who was a healthy scratch Sunday against the Blues, will check back into the Hawks' lineup with 45 points in 75 contests overall, but just one helper over his last nine outings.

Chicago Scratches Saad On Sunday

News: Brandon Saad will be a healthy scratch Sunday against the Blues, Mark Lazerus of the Chicago Sun-Times reports.
Analysis: Brandon Saad finds himself out of the lineup for a critical claim against Western Conference-leading St. Louis in light of his recent struggles. He has only one assist and a minus-6 rating over his last seven games.

Chicago's Saad Returns

News: Brandon Saad (upper body) is slated to play Sunday against the Predators, ESPNChicago.com reports.
Analysis: Brandon Saad, who last suited up on March 16, checks back into the Hawks' lineup with 44 points in 68 games to date.

Hawks' Saad (Upper Body) Out Friday Night

News: Brandon Saad (upper body) will not play Friday night against the Canes, CSN Chicago reports.
Analysis: Brandon Saad has already missed two consecutive games, and Friday night will make it a third. He's been a productive goal-scorer for the Hawks this season, so the team certainly misses his presence, despite scoring seven combined goals in the past two games without him.

Hawks' Saad To Sit Out Wednesday

News: Brandon Saad (upper body) will miss Wednesday's game vs. the Blues, ESPN Chicago reports.
Analysis: Brandon Saad entered morning skate questionable to play Wednesday, but coach Joel Quenneville ultimately decided the best course of action was to allow the forward to rest. Kris Versteeg will take his place as the left wing on the top line.

Brandon Saad

Hawks' Saad Could Play Wednesday

News: Coach Joel Quenneville indicated Tuesday that it's possible Brandon Saad (upper body) could play Wednesday against the Blues.
Analysis: Brandon Saad won't play Tuesday against the Flyers, but this nugget would appear to confirm that Saad is in the day-to-day category for the 'Hawks.

Blackhawks' Saad To Miss Tuesday's Game

News: Brandon Saad (upper body) will not play Tuesday vs. the Flyers, Mark Lazerus of the Chicago Sun-Times reports.
Analysis: The Blackhawks haven't offered much of a timetable for Brandon Saad beyond Tuesday's game, but coach Joel Quenneville previously indicated the injury wasn't overly serious. Expect the team to update Saad's status on a game-by-game basis unless he fails to make much progress in his recovery from the injury.

Hawks' Saad (Upper Body) Leaves Sunday's Game

News: Brandon Saad left Sunday's game against the Red Wings and did not return in what is being called an upper-body injury, WGN-AM Radio in Chicago reports.
Analysis: There will be more known on Monday on how long Brandon Saad will be out. After the game Hawks' coach Joel Quenneville said he did not think it was serious. Saad only skated for a little more than six minutes against the Red Wings and did not return for the third period. The Blackhawks though travel to Philadelphia on Tuesday so it will be known probably Monday on whether he will be traveling. Saad has had a strong sophomore season with 19 goals and 25 assists in 67 games. Ironically with Marian Hossa back on Sunday after an upper-body injury, Saad goes out with an upper-body injury.

Hawks' Saad Adds Goal Wednesday

News: Brandon Saad netted a goal in Wednesday's 3-2 loss to the Avalanche.
Analysis: The winger is proving to be a force in his second full season with the Hawks, and has now found the score sheet in four of his last five games. His hot streak may be short lived, though, as he's expected to be dropped back down to a lower line when Marian Hossa returns from an upper body injury.

Blackhawks' Saad To Get Shot On Top Line

News: Coach Joel Quenneville said that Brandon Saad will get the first opportunity to replace Marian Hossa (upper body) on the top line, Tracey Myers of CSN Chicago reports.
Analysis: With 41 points in 62 games, Brandon Saad has certainly been productive as a secondary scorer for the Blackhawks, but he could soon bolster those numbers even more skating alongside Patrick Sharp and Jonathan Toews. He's worth a speculative pickup in shallow or mid-sized leagues if he's still available on the waiver wire.

Hawks' Saad Could Move To Second Line Friday

News: Brandon Saad could replace Patrick Kane, who left the team to attend his grandfather's funeral, on the second line on Friday night against the Coyotes, Chicago Tribune reports.
Analysis: Brandon Saad practiced on the second line alongside Michal Handzus and Kris Versteeg in Thursday's skate. "We probably can move Saad up a little bit, see what he does in that situation," said Blackhawks coach Joel Quenneville after practice Thursday. "Whether he gets a little bit more ice time or not, we'll see." Saad, who was named to the All-Rookie Team last season, has developed nicely with 18 goals and 22 assists in 59 games.

Blackhawks Fall Despite Saad's Tally

News: Brandon Saad scored Chicago's lone goal in a 2-1 shootout loss at San Jose on Saturday.
Analysis: He's fortunate to be in a position to develop at age 21 while playing on a team with an explosive offense; the Hawks lead the league in goals per game, and Brandon Saad's fantasy value is getting a concomitant boost.

Hawks' Saad Adds Three Points In Win

News: Brandon Saad racked up two goals and an assist in Wednesday's 5-2 win over the Canucks.
Analysis: The winger's three point night helped the Hawks come back from an early two goal deficit, with Brandon Saad potting the empty netter to put the game on ice. The 21-year-old Saad is having a stellar season, with 17 goals, 22 assists, and a plus-22 rating through 56 games.

Blackhawks' Saad Notches Two Assists

News: Brandon Saad assisted on both Chicago goals in Tuesday's overtime loss to Colorado.
Analysis: He's got three helpers in his last two games after enduring a three-game pointless streak. Brandon Saad is having a very solid first full season, as he's on pace for 57 points and is carrying a plus-18 rating, providing him with fantasy relevance in a variety of formats.

Blackhawks' Saad Picks Up Two More Assists

News: Brandon Saad picked up a pair of assists in a win over the Devils on Monday.
Analysis: Brandon Saad is having himself quite the season, with 28 points in 39 games. He's also a remarkable plus-17 on the year and has been seeing more power-play time of late. All in all, he's been a key cog on a Chicago team that's stuffed with talent.

Brandon Saad, LW, CHI Hawks' Saad Happy On Four-Game Streak

Brandon Saad

Hawks' Saad Happy On Four-Game Streak

News: Brandon Saad's 12th goal of the season in Saturday's loss stretched his point streak to four games and six points, including four goals.
Analysis: He now has 25 points, just two shy of his career best of 27 last year. He's developing into a goal-scoring winger not unlike Patrick Sharp. There's huge value in that.

Saad Finds Twine Twice For 'Hawks

News: Brandon Saad scored a pair of goals in Tuesday's win over Dallas, giving him four markers and an assist in his last four contests.
Analysis: He's heating up again and continues to be a very valuable fantasy asset. Brandon Saad is on pace for an impressive 57 points in his first full NHL campaign.

Brandon Saad

Hawks' Saad Ends Goal Drought

News: Brandon Saad ended his six-game goal-less drought with an unassisted goal on Thursday night in the 4-3 loss to the Wild.
Analysis: Brandon Saad last scored on November 21 against the Jets, but he might be in line to score against Anaheim on Friday. The goal against the Jets was the second of back-to-back games where he scored. He has eight goals and 11 assists on the season and will surely pass his numbers in last season's lockout-shortened 2012-13 season (10 goals and 17 assists).

Hawks' Saad Scores Team's Lone Goal

News: Brandon Saad's third-period goal against the Avalanche was the lone highlight in the Blackhawks' 5-1 loss in Colorado on Tuesday night.
Analysis: With Tuesday's tally, Brandon Saad has six goals and eight assists, a pace that should send him flying past last year's lockout-shortened 27-point total.
