  • 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.

    Blackhawks' Brandon Saad: Registers two helpers in loss

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (1/6/18) Saad had two assists in a 5-4 loss to the Golden Knights on Friday.

    With the help of Saad's two assists, the Blackhawks screamed back from a two-goal deficit twice to take the lead in the third period, but the Golden Knights responded with the final two goals of the night. Near the midway point of the season, Saad is on pace to match his 24 goals from last season, but he only has 10 assists. The lack of helpers in 2017-18 could mean he doesn't reach the 50-point total for the first time since 2013-14. However, Saad is improving in that category -- he has four assists in the last three games.

    Blackhawks' Brandon Saad: Secures two points in narrow win

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (12/13/17) Saad compiled two points -- a goal and an assist -- in Tuesday night's 3-2 overtime win over the Panthers at home.

    Rookie Alex DeBrincat danced around the net and delivered a one-timer to Saad for the game's first goal, and then Saad -- who now has 11 goals and six assists through 31 games -- was the primary setup man on Jonathan Toews' game-tying tally in the third period.
