      Hurricanes' Kris Versteeg: Dishes out two helpers

      Versteeg dished out a pair of assists in Sunday's win over the Kings. Versteeg had gone six straight games without a point, but he's now factored onto the scoresheet in consecutive games. The winger has just two goals though, and will likely need to pick up his current pace to reach the 50-point plateau for the third time in his career.

      Hurricanes' Kris Versteeg: Notches helper in loss to Red Wings

      Versteeg notched his first point as a Hurricane in Saturday's 4-3 loss to the Red Wings, assisting on Justin Faulk's power-play goal late in the third period. As long as the 29-year-old Versteeg can stay healthy this year, he has a shot at cracking the 40-point barrier - something he hasn't done in four seasons. For now, Versteeg continues to spend most of his time skating on the Canes' second line with Jordan Staal and Nathan Gerbe.

    • Hawks Ship Versteeg To Carolina

      News: The Blackhawks traded Kris Versteeg (knee) , Joakim Nordstrom, and a 2017 third-round pick to Carolina in exchange for Dennis Robertson, Jake Massie, and a 2017 fifth-round pick on Friday.
      Analysis: The Blackhawks needed to free up some cap space in order to re-sign Markus Kruger, so moving Kris Versteeg and his $2.2 million cap hit is a step in the right direction. Versteeg was a solid contributor for the Hawks in 2014-15, tallying 34 points (14 goals, 20 assists) in 61 games with the team. The 29-year-old winger is still recovering from a knee injury, but is expected to be ready for the start of the upcoming season. Versteeg will likely slot into a second or third line role with the Hurricanes in 2015-16.
    • Knee Surgery May Be Needed For Hawks' Versteeg

      News: Kris Versteeg said Tuesday that he'll likely require an offseason procedure on his right knee, ESPN Chicago's Scott Powers reports.
      Analysis: Kris Versteeg, who skated 11:14 in Monday's Game 6 Stanley Cup clincher, previously had the ACL in the same knee repaired in March 2013, but he likely won't require nearly as significant of a procedure this time around. Instead, Versteeg acknowledged that any operation would probably be of the clean-up variety, which should put him on track to return for the start of the 2015-16 campaign. Injuries interrupted what had been a solid start to the regular season for Versteeg, who was limited to 61 games and ended up finishing with 34 points. Versteeg saw his role diminish in the postseason, but with the Blackhawks running up against the salary cap and likely to explore trading away Patrick Sharp this summer, he could stick with the Blackhawks in a second- or third-line capacity in 2015-16.
    • Blackhawks' Versteeg Unlikely To Play In Game 3

      News: With Bryan Bickell (upper body) taking line rushes Monday morning, Kris Versteeg is unlikely to play in Monday's Game 3 against the Lightning, Mark Lazerus of the Chicago Sun-Times reports.
      Analysis: Kris Versteeg replaced Bickell on the second line for the first two games of the series, but all signs point to Bickell returning Monday night. Versteeg logged 9:32 and 11:55 of ice time in his two appearances, recording one shot on goal and two PIM.
    • Hawks' Versteeg Expected In Lineup For Game 2

      News: Kris Versteeg, who replaced Bryan Bickell (upper body) in Game 1 of the Stanley Cup Finals, is expected to stay in the lineup for Game 2 with Bickell remaining on the sidelines, CSN Chicago reports.
      Analysis: While Kris Versteeg is not the hitter like Bickell, he played well in only about 9 1/2 minutes in Game 1. The limited minutes for Versteeg might have been due to his wife recently delivering a child. He added that he felt much more rested heading into Game 2 after the Saturday morning skate. "Yeah, the last couple of days it was nice to get a rest, let the body heal and get ready to go for the next game," he said following Saturday morning's skate. "That was a lot of adrenaline pumping (on Wednesday), especially getting through that game. It'll be good to settle in, hopefully play a good game and help out the team any way I can."
    • Hawks' Versteeg Will Play Wednesday

      News: Kris Versteeg will replace Bryan Bickell (undisclosed) in the lineup for Game 1 of the Stanley Cup Finals against the Lightning on Wednesday, Chris Kuc of the Chicago Tribune reports.
      Analysis: Kris Versteeg has only made one appearance over the past 11 playoff games but Bickell's absence leaves a golden opportunity for the 29-year-old. The replacement was seen skating in the second line during pregame warmups and he'll most likely assume that role in Game 1.
    • Hawks' Versteeg Back In For Game 3

      News: Kris Versteeg was reinserted into the Chicago lineup for the first time in nearly a month Thursday. He skated 13:31 and didn't record a point in a Game 3 loss to Anaheim.
      Analysis: It was his first appearance since Game 6 of the first round against Nashville, way back on April 25. Kris Versteeg and Joakim Nordstrom were surprise additions to the Hawks' lineup, with Antoine Vermette and Teuvo Teravainen sitting out. We'll see whether Chicago redeploys Versteeg in Game 4, but he's not much of a fantasy option at this point.
