  • Blackhawks' Brandon Saad: Returning from Columbus

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (6/23/17) Saad was reacquired by the Blackhawks on Friday -- along with Anton Forsberg -- in a swap for Artemi Panarin and Tyler Motte, Pierre LeBrun of TSN reports.

    Saad won a pair of Stanley Cups with the Hawks and returns after a two-year stint with Columbus. The winger should have no problem recording a fourth straight 50-plus point season as he teams back up with Jonathan Toews and Patrick Kane. In addition to the players exchanged, Chicago also sent a 2017 sixth-round pick in return for a 2018 fifth-round selection.

    Blue Jackets' Brandon Saad: Protected from expansion draft

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (6/19/17) Saad is on the Blue Jackets' protected list for the upcoming expansion draft, Aaron Portzline of The Columbus Dispatch reports.

    The 24-year-old winger hasn't exactly taken his game to another level since heading to Columbus two seasons ago, but Saad has provided the Jackets with a solid scoring presence, potting 24 goals and tying his career high with 53 points in 2016-17. As the talent level around him continues to improve, the 2011 second-round pick could be poised for a breakthrough.

    Blue Jackets' Brandon Saad: Two helpers in Game 4

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (4/19/17) Saad dished out two assists in Tuesday's Game 4 win over the Penguins.

    Saad's second helper came on Boone Jenner's game-winner as Columbus stayed alive with a 5-4 victory. The former Blackhawks winger had been kept off the board since Game 1, and his even rating in this one was a step up after he'd finished at minus-1 in each of the previous three contests. He's one of many Blue Jackets that will have to step up if they want to continue staving off elimination.

    Blue Jackets' Brandon Saad: Responds to benching with goal

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (4/14/17) Saad scored Columbus' only goal during Friday's Game 2 loss to Pittsburgh.

    The Blue Jackets have scored just two goals through two games, and Saad was the only Jacket to beat Marc-Andre Fleury on Friday. Home ice might help, but the defending champions are a tough matchup. At least Saad bounced back after being benched during the third period of Game 1, but it's worth nothing that it isn't the first time he's been in head coach John Tortorella's doghouse.

    Blue Jackets' Brandon Saad: Benched at end of Game 1

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (4/14/17) Saad didn't get on the ice for the final 15 minutes of the third period during Wednesday's Game 1 loss to the Penguins, Tom Reed of The Columbus Dispatch reports.

    The winger is one of the few Blue Jackets with much playoff experience from his time with the Blackhawks, but he suffered the wrath of coach John Tortorella after a poor second period and a turnover early in the third, getting nailed to the bench to close out Game 1. Saad was back on the top line with Alexander Wennberg and Nick Foligno during practice Thursday, however, so it doesn't look like Saad's punishment will extend into Game 2, at least initially.
