  • Blackhawks' Sam Lafferty: Inks two-year extension

    Lafferty signed a two-year, $2.3 million extension with the Blackhawks on Friday.

    Lafferty will stick in Chicago for two more seasons rather than becoming a free agent. The 27-year-old forward has five goals and eight assists heading into Friday's season finale against the Sabres.

  • Blackhawks' Sam Lafferty: Ends slump with assist

    Lafferty recorded an assist, four PIM and two hits in Monday's 3-1 win over the Flyers.

    Lafferty entered Monday on a seven-game point drought that ended with his assist on a Jonathan Toews tally in the first period. While he's been a regular in the Blackhawks' lineup since he was traded from the Penguins in January, he hasn't always shown much consistency on offense. The 27-year-old winger is up to 11 points, 78 shots on net, 133 hits and 31 PIM through 54 contests overall.

  • Blackhawks' Sam Lafferty: Generates helper

    Lafferty logged an assist and two hits in Sunday's 6-4 loss to the Stars.

    Lafferty set up Kirby Dach's third-period tally, but it was too little too late with the Blackhawks facing a three-goal deficit. The 27-year-old Lafferty ended a four-game point drought with the assist. He's earned 10 points, 67 shots on net, 116 hits and a minus-11 rating in 46 games between the Blackhawks and the Penguins this season.

  • Blackhawks' Sam Lafferty: Finds twine Monday

    Lafferty scored a goal on two shots and added four hits in Monday's 6-5 loss to the Sabres.

    Lafferty led Blackhawks forwards with 18:31 of ice time, a surprising achievement for a player that's mainly been a fourth-liner. He's scored twice in his last three outings and clearly has built trust with head coach Derek King with strong two-way play lately. The winger is up to nine points, 63 shots on net, 102 hits and a minus-7 rating through 41 appearances overall. He's notched five of his points in his last 13 games.

  • Blackhawks' Sam Lafferty: Lights lamp Thursday

    Lafferty scored a goal on four shots and added two hits in Thursday's 4-3 shootout win over the Kings.

    Lafferty has picked up two goals and a helper in his last six games. The 27-year-old continues to look solid in a middle-six role -- he saw just 14:26 of ice time Thursday, but he's been over the 15-minute mark twice in his last four outings. For the season, the American forward has eight points, 61 shots on net, 93 hits, 22 PIM and a minus-6 rating in 39 appearances between the Blackhawks and the Penguins.

  • Blackhawks' Sam Lafferty: Solid effort in loss

    Lafferty posted an assist, three shots on goal, three hits, two blocked shots and two PIM in Sunday's 6-4 loss to the Jets.

    Lafferty has been just an occasional contributor on offense from a bottom-six role this season. He's picked up four of his seven points in his last 11 outings. The 27-year-old has added 53 shots on net, 89 hits, 22 PIM and a minus-6 rating in 37 contests between the Blackhawks and the Penguins.

  • Blackhawks' Sam Lafferty: Nets first goal of season

    Lafferty scored a goal on two shots and added two hits in Wednesday's 8-5 win over the Red Wings.

    Lafferty converted on a Dylan Strome pass late in the first period to give the Blackhawks a 4-0 lead. The goal was Lafferty's first point in seven games with his new team after he was flipped from the Penguins on Jan. 5. The forward has three points, 21 shots on net, 48 hits, 12 PIM and a minus-1 rating in 17 contests overall this season -- those numbers are hardly worth much attention in fantasy.

  • Blackhawks' Sam Lafferty: Exits virus protocols

    Lafferty has cleared the NHL's COVID-19 protocols ahead of Thursday night's matchup with Montreal, Charlie Roumeliotis of NBC Sports Chicago reports.

    Although he's cleared the league's virus protocols, at this point it isn't clear if Lafferty will make his Blackhawks debut against the Canadiens. The 26-year-old forward picked up two helpers through 10 games with the Penguins before being traded to Chicago on Jan. 5.

  • Blackhawks' Sam Lafferty: Lands in virus protocols

    Lafferty was placed in the NHL's COVID-19 protocols Thursday, Carter Baum of the Blackhawks' official site reports.

    Lafferty was just brought in via trade from the Penguins, so it's unclear if he's going through intake testing or has tested positive upon arrival with his new team. He wasn't going to play Thursday versus the Coyotes anyway, as head coach Derek King wants the winger to get in some practices before entering the lineup.

  • Blackhawks' Sam Lafferty: Brought in via trade

    Lafferty was acquired by the Blackhawks from the Penguins on Wednesday in exchange for Alex Nylander.

    Lafferty has appeared in 10 games this season in which he registered two assists, nine shots and 34 hits while averaging just 8:43 of ice time. With the Hawks, the winger should be in the mix for a roster spot but may have to spend some time on either the taxi squad or in the minors this year.

  • Penguins' Sam Lafferty: Battling non-COVID illness

    Lafferty missed Wednesday's practice due to a non-COVID illness.

    Pittsburgh's next scheduled game is Sunday against San Jose, so Lafferty figures to recover from his illness in time for that contest. The 26-year-old has tallied one assist while averaging 8:37 of ice time through nine games this season.

  • Penguins' Sam Lafferty: Emerges with helper

    Lafferty registered an assist Saturday in a 3-1 win over the Devils.

    The native Pennsylvanian was the primary distributor on Zach Aston-Reese's second-period tally. Lafferty is a prime candidate for the taxi squad should the opportunity present itself, but the helper is a major boon to the second-year winger's confidence as he adjusts to top-level competition.

  • Penguins' Sam Lafferty: Elevated from taxi squad

    Lafferty was promoted to the NHL roster Thursday.

    The move to elevate Lafferty comes on the heels of an injury to Evan Rodrigues (lower body), one that will keep Rodrigues out until at least mid-February. Whether Lafferty can break into the lineup will depend on his ability to outwork Drew O'Connor at practice, though for now, it appears O'Connor has the inside track to minutes.

  • Penguins' Sam Lafferty: Drops to taxi squad

    Lafferty was assigned to the taxi squad Monday, Mike DeFabo of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports.

    Lafferty will need to be recalled before he can play his next NHL game. The 25-year-old forward suited up in each of the first three games of the year, but he logged just 3:08 of ice time in Sunday's win over the Capitals.

  • Penguins' Sam Lafferty: Staying in Pittsburgh

    Lafferty agreed to terms on a two-year, $1.5 million contract with the Penguins on Thursday.

    Lafferty has spent his entire career with the Penguins since being drafted in the fourth-round in 2014. The 25-year-old finally got a taste of NHL action last season, supplying six goals and 13 points across 50 games. Lafferty will likely start next season with the big club, but don't be surprised if he sees some more action in the AHL for Wilkes-Barre/Scranton.

  • Penguins' Sam Lafferty: Draws into Game 3

    Lafferty is in the lineup for Wednesday's Game 3 against Montreal.

    Lafferty will make his playoff debut centering the third line between a pair of grizzled veterans in Patrick Marleau and Patric Hornqvist. At the NHL level, Lafferty managed a modest 13 points in 50 games as a rookie this year after putting up 49 in 70 with AHL Wilkes-Barre/Scranton in 2018-19. The 24-year-old was inserted into the lineup Wednesday in place of Jared McCann.

  • Penguins' Sam Lafferty: Brought up from minors

    The Penguins recalled Lafferty on an emergency basis from AHL Wilkes-Barre/Scranton on Tuesday.

    Lafferty was demoted Monday to make him eligible for AHL playoffs, but he's expected to draw in against the Kings on Wednesday. The 24-year-old winger brings a physical element to the lineup with 91 hits over 46 games, but he's tacked on 13 points as well.

  • Penguins' Sam Lafferty: Sent down Monday

    Lafferty was demoted to AHL Wilkes-Barre/Scranton on Monday.

    Lafferty has been a solid contributor at the NHL level this season after filling in for various injuries. The rookie forward has six goals and 13 points in 46 NHL games. After the Penguins added some forward depth before the trade deadline, Lafferty and Anthony Angello were moved back to the minors.

  • Penguins' Sam Lafferty: Scores goal in rout

    Lafferty scored a goal on two shots in Sunday's 5-1 victory over Detroit.

    Lafferty is putting together a solid rookie campaign, as he has tallied six goals, six assists and 50 shots in 42 contests while logging 9:44 of ice time per game. The winger should benefit by having veteran Patric Hornqvist on his line and could see an uptick in offensive production down the stretch.

  • Penguins' Sam Lafferty: Gets first goal in two months

    Lafferty scored a goal on three shots and provided two hits Sunday in a 4-3 win over Washington.

    The rookie got the Penguins on the board 11:46 into the first period, wiring a snap shot from the left faceoff dot. It was his fifth goal of the year and his first since Nov. 30, putting an end to a 16-game goal drought. Lafferty centered the Penguins' fourth line Sunday and saw just 5:41 of ice time, all of it at even strength.
