Blackhawks' Brandon Saad: Finds twine in Game 4
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Saad scored a goal in Friday's 3-2 win over the Oilers in Game 4 of the Stanley Cup Qualifiers.

Saad scored the Blackhawks' first goal of the game, tying the score at one in the first period. It was the winger's second goal and third point of the series. He added a plus-2 rating and eight shots on net while working alongside Jonathan Toews and Dominik Kubalik, a trio that should be capable of putting up big numbers during the playoffs. Saad had 21 goals and 33 points in 58 regular-season games.

Blackhawks' Brandon Saad: Reaches 20-goal plateau again
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Saad found twine 21 times and chipped in 12 assists in 58 games prior to the league going on hiatus in mid-March.

The veteran has officially reached the 20-goal plateau for the fifth time in his NHL career. Saad has actually scored at a better clip than last season's 23-goal output over 80 games (0.36 goals per contest compared to 0.29), so the 27-year-old still makes for a nice complementary piece of offense behind stars Patrick Kane and Jonathan Toews and the younger Dominik Kubalik and Alex DeBrincat.

Blackhawks' Brandon Saad: Tallies go-ahead goal
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Saad scored a goal on two shots in Wednesday's 6-2 victory over San Jose.

Saad put the Blackhawks on top 3-1 with 2:02 left in the second period, a goal that held up as the game-winner. It was his first goal in the last six games and his 21st on the year. The 27-year-old is a dependable 20-goal scorer at the NHL level, although he's yet to reach the 50-point plateau since returning to Chicago three years ago.

Blackhawks' Brandon Saad: On scoresheet with assist
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Saad managed an assist in Friday's 2-1 loss to the Red Wings.

The helper on Patrick Kane's second-period goal snapped a three-game drought for Saad. The 27-year-old winger has been more of a finisher this year -- he has 20 goals and 12 assists through 56 appearances this season.

Blackhawks' Brandon Saad: Finds twine on power play
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Saad scored a power-play goal on a team-leading six shots Tuesday in a 6-5 loss to the Blues.

Saad gave the Blackhawks a 5-4 lead with 11:44 left in the third period, although the advantage would last for just over a minute. It was Saad's 19th goal of the season but, incredibly, his first all year with the man advantage. He has 29 points in 51 games and is about to hit 20 goals for the fourth time in the last six years.

Blackhawks' Brandon Saad: Lights lamp Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Saad scored a goal on four shots in Saturday's 8-4 win over the Flames.

Saad has managed seven goals and two assists in his last 10 games -- that's quite the hot streak for the 27-year-old winger. He's up to 28 points (18 tallies, 10 helpers) through 46 contests. Saad is likely to continue seeing top-six minutes, but he's stuck on zero power-play points.

Blackhawks' Brandon Saad: Collects two points in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Saad scored a goal and supplied an assist in Tuesday's 5-3 loss to the Oilers.

Saad tallied in the first period and then had the secondary helper on Adam Boqvist's second-period goal. In his last eight games, Saad has six goals and two helpers with a plus-2 rating. He's at 17 markers and 27 points in 44 contests overall.

Blackhawks' Brandon Saad: Buries 16th goal
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Saad scored a goal in Sunday's 5-2 loss to the Jets.

Saad converted on a Patrick Kane set-up at 10:58 of the first period. Offense has come in spades for Saad since he returned from an ankle injury -- he's posted five markers and an assist in his last seven games. The winger is at 25 points and 100 shots in 43 appearances this season.

Blackhawks' Brandon Saad: Stays hot with assist
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Saad picked up an assist in Tuesday's 3-2 overtime loss to the Wild.

Saad now has four goals and a helper in five games since returning from an ankle injury. The 27-year-old winger is at 24 points and 99 shots on net in 41 contests. It's worth a look to see if Saad was left on the waiver wire while he was injured -- he's reached 47 points in five of the last six campaigns, which suggests he could sustain his hot run a little longer.

Blackhawks' Brandon Saad: Leads offense for Chicago
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Saad scored twice on five shots and was plus-2 in Saturday's 3-2 shootout win over Arizona.

Saad staked the Blackhawks to a 2-0 lead with his 14th and 15th goals of the season. After a middling opening two months of the season, Saad has found his touch since mid-December, amassing seven goals in his last eight games. A resurgent Saad is a critical development for a Blackhawks squad making a push for the playoffs. The 27-year old is a proven 20-goal scorer and is worth considering as a waiver pickup while he's on this heater.

Blackhawks' Brandon Saad: Nets insurance tally
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Saad scored a goal in Sunday's 5-2 win over the Jets.

Saad's tally will be remembered as the goal Patrick Kane picked up his 1,000th point on -- the latter had the secondary assist. Saad has scored in consecutive games since returning from an ankle injury. He's up to 13 markers and 21 points in 38 contests, used mostly in a top-six role.

Blackhawks' Brandon Saad: Set to return Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Saad (ankle) will be in the lineup for Saturday's tilt in Toronto, Mark Lazerus of The Athletic reports.

Saad hasn't suited up since Dec. 19, missing the last 12 contests with an ankle injury. Prior to that, he had racked up 11 goals and 19 points in 36 games. Expect the 27-year-old winger to join the Blackhawks' top-six.

Blackhawks' Brandon Saad: Possible for Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Saad (ankle) could join the Blackhawks in Toronto in time for Saturday's game, Eric Lear of the Blackhawks' official site reports.

Coach Jeremy Colliton suggested Saad and Dylan Strome are getting closer to returning from their respective ankle injuries. It's probably no better than a 50/50 chance for either of them against the Maple Leafs -- Sunday's home game versus the Jets should be considered the more likely return date.

Blackhawks' Brandon Saad: Still without timetable
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Saad (ankle) has resumed skating but remains without a timetable, Mark Lazerus of The Athletic reports.

Saad skating is good news, but he doesn't appear particularly close to a return. The Pittsburgh native hasn't dressed since Dec. 19.

Blackhawks' Brandon Saad: Facing three-week absence
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Saad (ankle) is expected to be sidelined for three weeks.

Saad has already missed the Blackhawks' last two games, and it looks like he'll miss at least 10 more due to the ankle injury he sustained last Thursday against Winnipeg. John Quenneville is expected to get the first crack at replacing Saad on Chicago's top line Friday against the Islanders.

Blackhawks' Brandon Saad: Shifts to IR
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Saad (ankle) was placed on injured reserve retroactive to Dec. 19.

This move was expected since Saad wasn't likely to return until Dec. 27 at the earliest. The 27-year-old forward has compiled 11 goals and eight assists over 36 games this year, and Ryan Carpenter appears in line to play in the top six in Saad's stead.

Blackhawks' Brandon Saad: No firm timeline
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Coach Jeremy Colliton said following Thursday's game against Winnipeg that Saad (ankle) will be out "around a couple weeks," Eric Lear of the Blackhawks' official site reports.

Saad suffered the injury on a hit from Luca Sbisa on Thursday in the second period and didn't return. Although there isn't a firm timetable yet regarding Saad's absence, a two-week absence would hold him out for six games. With the veteran sidelined, the only healthy depth forward on the roster currently is Dylan Sikura, and he'll likely get the first crack to join the lineup Saturday against Colorado.

Blackhawks' Brandon Saad: Suffers scary injury Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Saad left Thursday's game against Winnipeg and won't return due to a right ankle injury.

Saad was on the receiving end of a hard check from Winnipeg's Luca Sbisa and couldn't put any weight on his right leg. It's likely that Saad could be facing an extended absence, but expect the team to comment on his status in the coming days. Look for Dominik Kubalik to get a bump up to the second power-play unit for the remainder of Thursday's game.

Blackhawks' Brandon Saad: Shows touch for quick goals
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Saad scored twice in Saturday's 4-3 loss to the Blues.

Saad struck at 19 seconds of the second period and 30 seconds of the third for the first two scores in the game. The pair of goals snapped a six-game point drought for the winger. He's up to 10 goals and 18 points through 33 contests this season. While somewhat streaky, the 27-year-old could be a boost to fantasy owners in deeper formats when he's scoring.

Blackhawks' Brandon Saad: Opens scoring shorthanded
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Saad potted a shorthanded goal on three shots in Saturday's 7-3 loss to the Avalanche.

Saad struck at 1:37 of the first period to give the Blackhawks a short-lived 1-0 lead. The Avalanche would run away with the game by scoring the next seven. The 27-year-old winger is on a modest three-game point streak with two goals and a helper. For the year, he's at 16 points in 26 appearances.
