Saad dished a pair of helpers in Thursday's 5-4 win over the Sharks.
Saad is up to 45 points (23 goals, 22 assists) in 75 games this season, rebounding from posting only 35 points last year. With 186 shots on goal, Saad may come up short of 200 shots for the first time since 2013-14. The point production makes him a serviceable winger in many fantasy formats.
Saad provided a helper in Sunday's 2-1 overtime win against the Avalanche.
Saad was able to set up Duncan Keith quickly to help the Blackhawks get revenge against the Avalanche for a loss on Saturday. Saad has 43 points (23 goals, 20 assists) in 73 games with a minus-8 rating this season, easily topping last year's mark of 35 points.
Saad scored a goal and an assist in Wednesday's 5-4 win over the Maple Leafs.
He also chipped in three shots, two hits and a plus-1 rating. Saad had only managed two points (a goal and an assist) with a minus-6 rating in his prior eight games, so this performance was a welcome sight, but the 26-year-old will still need to pick up the pace down the stretch if he's going to reach the 50-point plateau for the fourth time in his career.
Saad registered an assist in Wednesday's 4-3 win over the Ducks.
This was anything but an ordinary apple, as Saad ended up as the primary distributor on Patrick Kane's game-winning goal. Consistently deployed in both special teams situations, Saad has accrued 38 points (21 goals, 17 assists) through 62 games -- including three shorthanded tallies and six total points on the man advantage. He might not be doing enough for owners in shallow leagues, though.
Saad picked up an assist and a goal during Thursday's 5-2 comeback victory over the Devils.
Saad's scoring has been a bit sporadic this season, but he's been pretty consistent in the month of February, picking up four goals and seven points in seven contests. The American winger will look to keep rolling Saturday against Columbus.
Saad tallied two assists during Tuesday's 6-2 win over the Oilers.
Saad has played well over the past few weeks, notching five goals and seven points in his last seven contests. The 26-year-old American will look to continue his streak of strong play when Chicago faces Vancouver on Thursday.
Saad potted two goals in Friday's 7-3 win over the Sabres.
He's now got five goals in his last five games and 17 tallies on the season, but helpers have been a little tougher to come by for Saad -- his last assist came almost a month ago, and he has only 12 in 50 games.
Saad has scored a goal in three of the Blackhawks' last four games.
Saad's scoring has been a bit sporadic this season, but it appears as though the Blackhawks' vastly improved power play under new coach Jeremy Colliton will likely lead to additional opportunities for the 26-year-old winger in the second half of the campaign. The Pittsburgh native will look to stay hot when Chicago returns to action next Friday against the Sabres.
Saad registered a pair of goals -- including a power-play tally -- in a 5-2 win over the Wild on Thursday.
Thursday's two-goal effort put a stop to Saad's point drought that spanned five games. The Blackhawks forward has 22 points in 38 games, posting 11 goals and 11 assists in what's been a streaky season for the 26-year-old. Saad should be scoring more than he has to this point based on the fact that he logs close to two minutes of power-play time each game.
Saad tallied two assists and fired three shots on goal in Friday's 4-3 loss to the Jets.
Saad has found his scoring touch recently, notching one goal and four points in his last two contests after tallying just one helper in his previous five appearances. The American winger will look to extend his scoring streak to three games Sunday against the Sharks.
Saad fashioned a shorthanded goal Saturday in a 5-2 road loss to the Predators.
The Predators took a 3-0 lead in the first period, but Saad at least threatened a comeback after he blew past defenseman Ryan Ellis and potted a nifty shorthanded goal for his eighth career goal against Nashville. Saad is valuable to Blackhawks as a top-line contributor who is deployed on the power play and in shorthanded situations. Oh, and we'd be remiss to leave out the fact that he's a two-time Stanley Cup winner with the Original Six franchise -- hoisting Lord Stanley in 2013 and 2015.
Saad scored his fifth goal of the season in Friday's 2-1 shootout loss to the Kings.
It was his first tally in two games since Saad returned from a brief two-game absence due to an arm injury. The 26-year-old winger now has a modest five goals and nine points in 18 games, and while he does have three consecutive 50-point campaigns on his resume, Saad's limited power-play time and current placement on the third line at even strength won't give him many opportunities to improve on that pace.
Saad (arm) will return to the lineup for Wednesday's game against the Blues, NHL.com's Scott King reports.
Saad will return to a bottom-six role against St. Louis, skating with Artem Anisimov and John Hayden on the Blackhawks' third line. The 26-year-old winger will be looking to pick up where he left off prior to his injury, as he had just begun to heat up before missing two games due to an arm issue, notching four goals and six points in his last eight appearances.
Saad (arm) won't play against the Hurricanes on Monday, Mark Lazerus of The Athletic reports.
This will the be the second game missed with this injury for the wing. Saad struggled last season in his return to the Blackhawks, although a 7.6 shooting percentage played a big role in that. This year, he has four goals in 16 games with an 11.1 shooting percentage, so at least his puck luck, if not his injury luck, has returned to normal.
Saad didn't play Saturday against Philadelphia due to an arm injury, but he could return to action as soon as Monday against Carolina, Adam Kimelman of NHL.com reports.
The good news is Saad's injury clearly isn't overly serious, so if he's unable to go against the Hurricanes, he should definitely be back for Wednesday's game against the Blues. The 26-year-old winger has started to pick up his play recently, notching four goals and six points in his last eight games.
Saad will miss Saturday's matinee against the Flyers due to a right arm injury, Tracey Myers of NHL.com reports.
Saad will be reevaluated ahead of Monday's road contest against the Hurricanes, but this is an unfortunate development for a guy with a pair of goals and an assist over his last five contests.
Saad (mouth) said he will play Thursday against the Hurricanes, Chris Wescott of the Blackhawks' official site reports.
Saad basically ate a puck in practice Wednesday, but it appears that he'll tough out the injury for the next contest, adding, "I'll wear a bubble tonight just for protection." The third-line winger has four goals and three assists over 15 games this season, but his lack of power-play production remains a glaring weakness in his game. After all, Saad only has two power-play points since the start of the 2017-18 campaign, despite averaging close to two minutes per game in that special teams situation.
Saad is considered questionable for Thursday's game against the Hurricanes after taking a puck to the face during Wednesday's practice, Scott Powers of The Athletic reports.
Saad will head to a dentist for repairs Wednesday, but it remains to be seen if he'll be able to tough it out and suit up against Carolina. The 26-year-old winger, who's collected four goals and seven points in 15 appearances this season, may ultimately be deemed a game-time decision for Thursday's contest.
Saad scored two goals and recorded seven shots in a 3-1 victory over the Ducks on Tuesday.
This ends a bit of a rough start to the season for Saad, who had just two assists and no goals in the first eight games. Owners don't need to be too overly concerned, though, as not only is it still early, but Saad has never been a great starter in October. He has 37 points in 64 career October games; his points per game average is better in both November and December.
Saad was not part of Chicago's top four lines at Monday's practice, Mark Lazerus of The Athletic reports.
This is an intriguing development, considering Saad has tallied two assists in five games to start the season. Chicago's next game is still three days away Thursday versus the Coyotes, and a lot can change between now and puck drop. The 25-year-old American is healthy and has averaged 17:03 of ice time, fifth most among Blackhawks forwards, so this will be a story worth monitoring over the next few days.
