      Blackhawks' Artem Anisimov: Nets power-play goal in loss

      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.

      Blackhawks' Artem Anisimov: Collects two points in win

      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.

      Blackhawks' Artem Anisimov: Will play Sunday

      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.

      Blackhawks' Artem Anisimov: Part of morning lines Sunday

      Animisov (lower body) was part of morning lines for Sunday's game against the Oilers, Brian Hedger of 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.

      Blackhawks' Artem Anisimov: Could return 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.

      Blackhawks' Artem Anisimov: Exits Friday's game with injury

      Anisimov exited Friday's tilt against the Devils with a lower-body injury and has been ruled out of the remainder of the contest. The exact nature of the ailment remains unclear, but Anisimov was ruled out of the rest of Friday's game shortly after exiting the contest, indicating the injury could be relatively serious. The Blackhawks should provide an update on the 27-year-old center's status once they have an opportunity to evaluate him further.

    • Hawks' Anisimov Expected To Center Second Line

      News: Artem Anisimov is expected to center the Blackhawks' second line during the upcoming season, Scott Powers of ESPN Chicago reports.
      Analysis: After acquiring Artem Anisimov Monday in the Brandon Saad trade, the Blackhawks affirmed their commitment to carve out a bigger role for the 27-year-old pivot by signing him to a five-year, $22.75 million contract extension the following day while unrestricted free agents Brad Richards and Antoine Vermette signed with other clubs. The Blackhawks have had some instability at the second-line center spot for the last several seasons, but the team is hoping that Anisimov can finally end the carousel. It's unclear who Anisimov will skate next to in 2015-16, but coach Joel Quenneville's historical tendency to separate Jonathan Toews and Patrick Kane could allow Anisimov to ride shotgun with one of the league's most potent goal scorers.
    • Blackhawks, Anisimov Reach Five-Year Extension

      News: Artem Anisimov signed a five-year, $22.75 million contract extension with the Blackhawks on Wednesday, Darren Dreger of TSN reports.
      Analysis: Artem Anisimov, who was one of five players the Blackhawks received back in Tuesday's stunning deal that sent Brandon Saad to the Blue Jackets, is expected to slot in as the team's second or third-line center following the expected offseason departures of Brad Richards and Antoine Vermette. The 27-year-old hasn't tallied more than 45 points in any of his seven NHL seasons, but his steady play in all facets of the game should make him a useful piece in Chicago. Anisimov still has one year remaining on his previous deal with a cap hit of $3.28 million before the extension kicks in next summer and runs through the end of the 2020-21 campaign.
    • Anisimov, Blackhawks Working On Extension

      News: Artem Anisimov and the Blackhawks are close to agreeing to a contract extension, Chris Kuc of the Chicago Tribune reports.
      Analysis: After the Blackhawks weren't able to come to terms on a new deal with restricted free agent Brandon Saad, the team shipped him to Columbus earlier Tuesday, with Artem Anisimov representing one of the five pieces the team received in return. While Anisimov won't be expected to fill the offensive void created by Saad's departure, he should provide a decent impersonation of Antoine Vermette, an unrestricted free agent who the Stanley Cup champs weren't expected to retain. Look for Anisimov to center the Blackhawks' third line this season and offer solid contributions in most phases of the game, though nothing that will likely result in him becoming a high-end fantasy commodity.
    • Anisimov Traded From Jackets To Hawks

      News: Artem Anisimov was acquired by the Blackhawks on Tuesday along with forwards Marko Dano, Jeremy Morin, Corey Tropp, and a 2016 fourth-round draft pick. The Blue Jackets will receive forwards Brandon Saad and Alex Broadhurst and defenseman Michael Paliotta in return.
      Analysis: Like many of the Blue Jackets' forwards last season, Artem Anisimov was felled by the injury bug in 2014-15, appearing in only 52 games and providing seven points and 27 games. He offers some ability from the faceoff dot and is capable of producing in a depth-scoring role, not unlike soon-to-be free agent Antoine Vermette, who is not expected to be re-signed. The 27-year-old Anisimov carries a $3.283 million cap hit for the coming season, so it may be challenging for the Blackhawks to fit him under the cap.
