Senators' Artem Anisimov: Traded to Ottawa
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Blackhawks traded Anisimov to the Senators in exchange for Zack Smith on Tuesday.

Both players involved in this deal are signed through 2020-21, but Anisimov carries a cap hit of $4.55 million on an annual basis, whereas Smith's cap hit is somewhat more reasonable at $3.25 million, so this appears to be a financially motivated move for Chicago, particularly when considering Anisimov has been significantly more productive than Smith over the past two seasons. The Russian pivot will likely slot into a middle-six role for the Senators in 2019-20, and should be able to put up 15-plus goals and at least 30 points for a fifth consecutive season.

Blackhawks' Artem Anisimov: Garners assist
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Anisimov generated an assist and four shots in Saturday's 3-2 overtime loss to the Kings.

Anisimov is up to 36 points (14 goals, 22 helpers) in 74 games this season, as well as 134 shots. Unfortunately, he's only picked up four points on the man advantage after posting 12 power-play points last year.

Blackhawks' Artem Anisimov: Plucks apple
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Anisimov collected an assist and two blocked shots while earning a plus-2 rating in Thursday's 5-4 win over the Sharks.

Anisimov has wrangled 35 points (14 goals, 21 helpers) in 73 games this season, better than the 31 he had in 2017-18. He's not likely to return to the 40-point threshold, but fantasy owners in deeper formats have likely found the Russian center a productive depth option.

Blackhawks' Artem Anisimov: Snaps goal drought
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Anisimov potted a power-play goal in Sunday's 2-1 overtime win against the Avalanche.

Anisimov won a faceoff early in the third period back to Brent Seabrook, and then deflected the defender's shot by Avs goalie Philipp Grubauer. Anisimov is up to 14 goals and 34 points in 71 games this year, primarily functioning as a middle-six forward. Anisimov had three shots and a blocked shot in the contest as well.

Blackhawks' Artem Anisimov: Scores twice in high-scoring affair
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Anisimov scored his 12th and 13th goals of the season in Thursday's 5-4 shootout win over Buffalo.

Anisimov's second goal of the night tied the game after Buffalo managed to score three times in the middle frame, erasing a 2-0 deficit in the process. Thursday marked Anisimov's first multi-goal game of 2018-19 and moved him up to 31 points through 63 appearances.

Blackhawks' Artem Anisimov: Buries shorthanded goal
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Anisimov's 11th goal of the year came down a man in a 4-3 win over the Ducks on Wednesday.

The shorty was his first of the season. The Russian winger has 29 points in 60 games this season. Anisimov doesn't typically play a heavy game, and with 108 shots on goal, he's only worth a look in deeper formats.

Blackhawks' Artem Anisimov: Two points in home win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Anisimov scored a goal and added an assist in Thursday's 5-2 win over New Jersey.

Anisimov drew the secondary assist on Patrick Kane's 34th goal of the season, before adding to Chicago's lead later in the game with his ninth of the year. Prior to Thursday, the Blackhawks forward last scored Jan. 9. Anisimov is up to 25 points in 54 games in 2018-19.

Blackhawks' Artem Anisimov: Dishes helper in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Anisimov tallied an assist while logging 14:31 of ice time during Thursday's 4-3 overtime win over the Canucks.

Anisimov has been a steady source of depth scoring for the Blackhawks this season, notching eight goals and 24 points in 51 appearances, but his inconsistency and lack of upside keep him safely off the radar in most fantasy formats. He'll look to extend his scoring streak to three games when Chicago faces Detroit on Sunday.

Blackhawks' Artem Anisimov: Bags two apples
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Anisimov sent out two assists in Monday's loss to the Flames.

This was Anisimov's fourth multi-point game of the season and his first since November. Anisimov now has 13 assists, surpassing last year's total already while adding seven goals as well. Lining up on a unit with Patrick Kane makes Anisimov due for some points by default, but the Blackhawks would like to see the veteran bump up from his 9.5 shooting percentage.

Blackhawks' Artem Anisimov: Tallies seventh goal of 2018-19
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Anisimov scored the game-winning goal in a 2-1 victory against the Avalanche on Friday.

The 30-year-old missed four games in the middle of December because of a concussion, but he has a goal and an assist in three contests since returning. With seven goals in 34 games, Anisimov isn't on pace to score at least 20 goals for the fourth straight season, but he is on track to surpass his 31 points from last season, and his plus-minus is much improved compared to what it was in 2017-18. There's also room for Anisimov to improve his 10.4 shooting percentage considering he boasted a 15.4 conversion rate last season.

Blackhawks' Artem Anisimov: Activated off IR
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Blackhawks activated Anisimov (concussion) off injured reserve Tuesday.

Anisimov has missed Chicago's last four games due to a concussion, but he should be good to go for Tuesday's matchup with Nashville now that he's no longer on the injured list. The 30-year-old pivot has notched six goals and 15 points in 31 appearances this season.

Blackhawks' Artem Anisimov: Lands on IR
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Blackhawks placed Anisimov (concussion) on injured reserve retroactive to Dec. 9 on Wednesday.

Anisimov will be eligible to return Tuesday against the Predators, but at this juncture there's no telling if he'll be cleared to play in time for that contest. David Kampf and Dylan Strome will both likely take on larger roles during Anisimov's absence.

Blackhawks' Artem Anisimov: Not playing Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Anisimov (head) is still in concussion protocol and will not travel with the team to Winnipeg for Tuesday's game, Scott Powers of The Athletic reports.

Given this news, it also seems unlikely that Anisimov will play Wednesday's game against the Penguins either. The Blackhawks haven't been without the Russian yet this season, but this will likely lead to some more playing time for Dylan Strome, who still carries the potential of being a third-overall pick.

Blackhawks' Artem Anisimov: Enters concussion protocol
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Anisimov is in concussion protocol, having absorbed a heavy hit from Shea Weber in Sunday's 3-2 home loss to the Canadiens, Tracey Myers of NHL.com reports.

This news was relayed to Myers from coach Jeremy Colliton, as the Blackhawks have been making a concerted effort to be more transparent with player injuries this season. If you've been depending on Anisimov in fantasy hockey, it will be worth checking back to see if he's going to travel to Winnipeg for Tuesday's game, but the initial fear that he's dealing with a concussion doesn't lend much hope that he's dealing with a minor injury.

Blackhawks' Artem Anisimov: Suffers apparent injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Anisimov required an early trip to the locker room due to injury in Sunday's 3-2 home loss to the Canadiens, Tracey Myers of NHL.com reports.

As noted by Myers, Anisimov absorbed a huge hit from Habs defenseman Shea Weber, and the official game log shows the top-six forward taking only that first shift in the third period before leaving the contest for good. We won't speculate on the severity of the injury, but Anisimov is bound to be reevaluated ahead of Tuesday's road game against the Jets.

Blackhawks' Artem Anisimov: Records one of each in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Anisimov notched a goal and an assist in Thursday's 6-5 loss to Winnipeg.

The 30-year-old now has four goals and 13 points in 26 games this season. Despite the fact his team allowed six goals Thursday, Anisimov finished the game with a plus-2 rating.

Blackhawks' Artem Anisimov: Will play after missing practice
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Anisimov was excused from practice Thursday morning for the birth of his child, but will be in the lineup against Carolina on Thursday, Eric Lear of the Blackhawks' official site reports.

Anisimov won't miss the beginning of the Jeremy Colliton era in Chicago and will no doubt also be looking to shake off a four-game goal drought. Considering the Russian is averaging 17:08 of ice time -- including 2:21 with the man advantage -- he should have plenty of opportunities to find the back of the net.

Blackhawks' Artem Anisimov: Plays role in all three goals
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Anisimov scored a goal and had two helpers during Saturday's 7-3 loss to St. Louis.

Anisimov had a hand in all three goals to tie Patrick Kane for the team-high point total. The goal was Anisimov's second of the year, while his assist was the fifth. It's been a slow star overall for Anisimov, but fantasy owners will hope that Saturday's big performance will jumpstart the center's campaign.

Blackhawks' Artem Anisimov: Breaks drought
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Anisimov scored a goal and earned a helper on Alex DeBrincat's winner in a 4-3 overtime victory over St. Louis on Saturday

Anisimov's owners have to be breathing a sigh of relief that he's finally on the score sheet. The question is whether he can build on this effort, as he took a step back last year and hasn't shown yet that 2017-18 was an aberration. Be cautious on playing him at this point until he shows that he's back to form.

Blackhawks' Artem Anisimov: Slow start to season
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Anisimov has gone scoreless through the first three games of the campaign.

Anisimov has yet to find his scoring touch, but he's still averaging over 16 minutes of ice time per game while getting looks on the second power-play unit, so his scoreless streak should be snapped soon enough. His next chance to crack the scoresheet will come Thursday in Minnesota.
