Anisimov scored on the power play in Friday's loss to the Flames. That's the eighth goal of the season for Anisimov, who continues to thrive on a line with Patrik Kane. Anisimov is riding a four-game point streak and now has 14 points in 20 games. The former 22-goal-scorer, who is sporting a plus-5 rating, should be in your lineup every game while he continues to play with the hottest player in the NHL.
Anisimov scored his sixth goal of the season and had an assist in Sunday's win over Edmonton. Anisimov only scored seven goals in 52 games with Columbus last season, but he's been lighting the lamp frequently through 15 games with Chicago. He's recorded nine points, a plus-4 rating and a league-high two shorthanded goals thus far, making him an all-around fantasy asset. The top-six forward is a former 22-goal-scorer and is worth looking at if he's available in your league.
Anisimov (lower body) will play Sunday against the Oilers, Tracey Myers of CSN Chicago reports. Anisimov was limited to just 7:34 of ice time Friday after suffering a lower-body issue, but it appears it won't cost him any time beyond that. He'll return to the lineup Sunday, and is expected to center the second line alongside Patrick Kane and Artemi Panarin.
Animisov (lower body) was part of morning lines for Sunday's game against the Oilers, Brian Hedger of NHL.com reports. Animisov was forced to leave Friday's game, but all signs point to that being the only time he misses. It still needs to be confirmed, but there's a strong chance he suits up on the second line Sunday.
Head coach Joel Quenneville hopes Anisimov (lower body) can play in the Blackhawks' next game Sunday, Mark Lazerus of the Chicago Sun-Times reports. Anisimov exited Friday's game with the lower body injury, but it sounds like there is a chance that could be the extent of his absence. Anisimov played just seven minutes and went without a point in Friday's game, but he tallied six points (4G, 2A) in his last 10 games after notching just one in the season's first four games.
