    • Blackhawks Re-Sign Desjardins

      News: Andrew Desjardins re-signed with the Blackhawks on Friday, ESPN reports.
      Analysis: Andrew Desjardins will return to Chicago on a two-year deal that will pay him an average of $800,000 per season. The 28-year-old came over at the trade deadline from San Jose last season and was a plus-1 in 13 regular season contests. In 21 playoff appearances, Desjardins notched a goal and three assists.
    • 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.
    • Blackhawks' Desjardins (Illness) Back At Practice

      News: Andrew Desjardins (illness) returned to practice Wednesday, Eric Lear of Blackhawks TV reports.
      Analysis: Andrew Desjardins had missed the last two practices while battling flu-like symptoms, but the ailment was never considered serious, and his presence on the ice Wednesday is an indication that he should be good to go going forward.
    • Hawks' Desjardins Misses Practice With Illness

      News: Andrew Desjardins missed Sunday's practice due to an illness, Tracey Myers of CSN Chicago reports.
      Analysis: Andrew Desjardins' illness isn't believed to be anything serious, so it shouldn't really cost him any time. Holding him out of practice was likely a precaution to prevent others from catching it, but he should have plenty of time to recover before the Blackhawks play again.
    • Hawks' Dejardins Fourth Line Center Thursday

      News: Dejardins will return to the lineup on Thursday as the fourth-line center in replacing Marcus Kruger who is out with an illness, ESPN Chicago reports.
      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.
    • Hawks' Desjardins To Face Old Teammates

      News: Andrew Desjardins will be in the lineup on Saturday against his old team, the Sharks, as the Blackhawks use him to fill the spot of Joakim Nordstrom, who was suspended for two games for an illegal hit in Thursday's contest, Chris Kuc of the Chicago Tribune reports.
      Analysis: Andrew Desjardins had been a healthy scratch for the previous two games after making his debut on March 6 for the Blackhawks after the trade with the Sharks.

      News: Andrew Desjardins saw just over nine minutes in his Blackhawks debut Friday, racking up seven hits in a shootout victory over the Oilers.
      Analysis: Andrew Desjardins also had two shots on goal in the victory. If Desjardins ends up finding himself as a regular skater in the Blackhawks' lineup, he could end up taking further ice time away from veteran Daniel Carcillo and rookie Teuvo Teravainen, both of whom were healthy scratches Friday.
    • Hawks' Desjardins Expected To Make Debut Friday

      News: Andrew Desjardins, who was acquired from the Sharks on Monday in a deadline deal, is expected to be on the ice for the Blackhawks on Friday against the Oilers, ESPN Chicago reports.
      Analysis: Andrew Desjardins will most likely be on the fourth line. With Desjardins expected to be in the lineup on Friday, Teuvo Teravainen would not suit up. The Blackhawks are hoping that a change of scenery will do the trick for Desjardins who had only eight points in 56 games for the Sharks.
    • Blackhawks Get Desjardins From Sharks In Deal

      News: Andrew Desjardins was acquired from the Sharks in exchange for forward Ben Smith and a conditional 2017 seventh-round draft pick, Mark Spector of Sportsnet reports.
      Analysis: The Sharks and Blackhawks will swap fourth-line centers in what amounts to a change-of-scenery deal for both players. Andrew Desjardins has only produced eight points in 56 games with the Sharks and shouldn't see much of a spike or dip in his already limited fantasy value with his new organization.
    • Sharks' Desjardins Scores Two

      News: Andrew Desjardins' two goals early in the second period Thursday helped chase opposing goalie Kari Lehtonen in an eventual 5-2 win over the Stars.
      Analysis: Andrew Desjardins doesn't contribute much offense, generally, as he's usually relied upon for his physical play. Thursday's four shots on goal represent his season high, and he only has eight points to show for 54 games this year.
