  • Blackhawks' Brandon Saad: Posts 35 points back with Chicago

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (4/30/18) Saad put up 35 points (18 goals, 17 assists) while playing in all 82 games, firing off 237 shots on goal and averaging 17:30 of ice time.

    Much like his teammates, Saad saw a decrease in points throughout the season, and the 35 total was his lowest amount since the lockout shortened 2012-13. That doesn't mean the fault was all on the 25-year-old though, as he set a new career high in shots on goal (237) but was victimized by a career low 7.6 shooting percentage -- he'd never posted a mark below 10 prior -- and helped drive play which was evidenced by his 56.6 corsi percentage. Saad also saw 2:07 of power-play time per game but remarkably only had one point on the man advantage, which also dragged down his total. Saad is due back in Chicago for 2018-19, and should stay in the top six and retain a power-play role.

    Blackhawks' Brandon Saad: Notches assist in loss

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (3/23/18) Saad tallied an assist and fired seven shots on goal in Thursday's 5-2 loss to the Canucks.

    Saad has been moved up and down in the lineup in an attempt to get him going throughout the season, but that hasn't translated into increased production, as he'll almost certainly finish the year with his lowest point total since the abbreviated 2012-13 campaign. The 25-year-old winger's season has undoubtedly been a disappointment, but the same can be said for the Blackhawks as a whole, so it wouldn't be surprising to see him rebound and surpass the 50-point threshold in 2018-19. Saad will be a player savvy fantasy owners will want to keep an eye on in the later rounds of their drafts as a potential value pick next campaign.

    Blackhawks' Brandon Saad: Has points in back-to-back games

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (2/17/18) Saad recorded a goal and an assist in Saturday's 7-1 blowout win over the Capitals.

    It's been a disappointing reunion campaign for Saad after being brought back to Chicago in the Artemi Panarin trade over the summer, as he has just 15 goals and 27 points in 59 contests. With two goals and an assist in his last two games, the Blackhawks can only hope the two-time Stanley Cup winner is rounding into form late in the season, so fantasy owners should pick him up if still available before he's back on the radar again.

    Blackhawks' Brandon Saad: Model for puck control

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (1/27/18) Saad is leading all skaters who've played at least 25 games this season in Corsi For percentage with a value of 59.0.

    This proves that the Blackhawks dominate possession when Saad is on the ice during five-on-five situations. He's been averaging 2:42 of power-play ice time and 1:49 on the penalty kill, but hasn't etched the scoresheet on special teams save for a lone man-advantage goal. Saad needs to do more than produce at even strength to enthrall a larger fantasy audience, and with 13 goals and 10 helpers through 49 games, he needs to go on a nice run to finish with at least 52 points for the fourth straight season.

    Blackhawks' Brandon Saad: Production finally picking up

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (1/7/18) Saad scored a goal Sunday in Chicago's 4-1 win over Edmonton and extended his current scoring streak to four games.

    The streak has come at a much-needed time. Saad has six points (two goals, four assists) in those four games, but he still has just 23 points in 41 games. He's at risk of missing the 50-point mark for the first time since 2013-14. Saad, Jonathan Toews and Vinnie Hinostroza seem to have developed some real chemistry of late, so let's hope this results in continued production.
