Desjardins hasn't tallied a single point in 31 games this season. Desjardins is a decent fourth-line grinder for the Blackhawks, but his non-existent offensive production keeps him from being a practical option in any fantasy format.
Desjardins will be a healthy scratch for Sunday's game against the Stars, Tracey Myers of CSN Chicago reports. Desjardins is now fine to play following a lower-body injury but head coach Joel Quenneville is opting not to tinker with his lineup. He's a fringe player at best and had just 13 points in 77 games last year, so even once he cracks the lineup for his season debut he's not likely to make much of a fantasy impact.
The Blackhawks activated Desjardins (lower body) from injured reserve Saturday. Desjardins has already been ruled out of Saturday's game against the Stars, but should be ready to return to the lineup for Sunday's matchup with Dallas. The veteran winger's limited offensive upside and bottom-six role keep him from being a viable option in most fantasy leagues, but his return to action should help improve Chicago's primary penalty killing-unit, which has struggled early on this season.
Coach Joel Quenneville told reporters Saturday he's hopeful Desjardins (lower body) will be able to play Sunday against the Stars, Tracey Myers of CSN Chicago reports. Desjardins' isn't a viable option in most fantasy leagues due to his limited offensive upside and bottom-six role, but his return to action should dramatically improve Chicago's primary penalty-killing unit, which has struggled early on this season. The Blackhawks should provide another update on Desjardins' status ahead of puck drop Sunday evening.
Desjardins (lower body) is hoping to rejoin the lineup for one of the games against Dallas either Saturday or Sunday, Tracey Myers of CSN Chicago reports. While it's no guarantee he will be available for either of the contests, at least a timeline has been placed on the blueliner. Desjardins can essentially be ruled out for the team's next to tilts and more updates should surface as the dates draw closer.
