    Blackhawks' Andrew Desjardins: Posts two points in victory Sunday

    Desjardins scored an empty-net goal and had an assist in Sunday's win over the Senators. While he's only got six points on the season, Desjardins has scored in three straight games and has five points in that span. The 29-year-old has fired at least three shots on goal and logged over 15 minutes of ice time in each of those outings. While it's good to see him contributing for a hot Chicago team, Desjardins has never surpassed 17 points in his career and isn't known for his offensive contributions.

    Blackhawks' Andrew Desjardins: Strikes twice against Coyotes Tuesday

    Desjardins scored a pair of goals in Tuesday's win over the Coyotes. A solid effort for Desjardins, who logged 16:48 of ice time in a crazy game that saw the two teams combined for 12 goals. It was the first goal since Nov.25 for Desjardins, who isn't known for being a big offensive contributor. With three goals and no assists in 33 games on the year, the former 19-goal-scorer in the AHL only holds fantasy value in the very deepest of leagues.

  • Blackhawks' Desjardins Dishes Out Two In Win

    News: Andrew Desjardins supplied two assists in Wednesday's Game 6 win over the Ducks.
    Analysis: Andrew Desjardins' first assist required a particularly resilient effort, as he chased down a loose puck and dumped it over to Andrew Shaw, who would give the Blackhawks a two-goal advantage. Valued mostly for his steady, physical play on the back end, Desjardins typically doesn't see much involvement on the attack, and he has only three points across 14 postseason contests.

    Analysis: Dejardins has been averaging about 13 to 14 minutes when he has been in the lineup recently for the Blackhawks. He was a healthy scratch on Tuesday against the Wild. Dejardins has two assists in 11 games since being acquired from the San Jose Sharks on March 1. The trade was a change of scenery swap as the Blackhawks sent Ben Smith to the Sharks. Smith has been more productive with two goals and three assists for San Jose; but if Dejardins gives the Hawks some production in the Stanley Cup playoffs, it will be considered a useful swap.
