Blackhawks' Erik Gustafsson: Posts 20th assist
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gustafsson produced an assist and two shots on goal in Saturday's 8-4 loss to the Flames.

Gustafsson snapped a four-game point drought with the helper. The Swede is at 26 points, 94 shots, 79 hits and 25 PIM through 57 appearances this season.

Blackhawks' Erik Gustafsson: Offers helper
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gustafsson recorded an assist and two hits in Tuesday's 3-2 overtime loss to the Wild.

The Swede has found his scoring touch lately, with a goal and six helpers over his last five games. Gustafsson is at 25 points, 87 shots and 73 hits in 52 appearances this season. While he's way off of last year's 60-point pace, he could still cobble together a 40-point campaign in 2019-20 if he can sustain his recent success.

Blackhawks' Erik Gustafsson: Dishes two assists
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gustafsson picked up two assists in Tuesday's 4-3 loss to the Panthers.

Both helpers came in the third period, and the first one was on the power play. Gustafsson has produced three straight multi-point outings -- he has a goal and five helpers in that span. The Swede is up to 24 points, 83 shots on goal, 69 hits and 43 blocked shots in 50 games.

Blackhawks' Erik Gustafsson: Two points in Sunday's win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gustafsson scored a goal, dished an assist and blocked two shots in Sunday's 5-2 win over the Jets.

The Swedish blueliner had a hand in both of the Blackhawks' first-period tallies. Gustafsson has produced back-to-back multi-point outings. He's at 22 points, 83 shots on goal, 68 hits and 42 blocks through 49 games.

Blackhawks' Erik Gustafsson: Picks up assist in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gustafsson recorded an assist, two shots on goal and three hits in Sunday's 4-2 win over the Red Wings.

The Swede now has a goal and two assists in his last four games. Gustafsson has compiled 18 points, 74 shots and 57 hits through 42 appearances this season. If he picks up the pace, a 40-point campaign is doable, but that's still far less than the breakout 60-point effort he had in 2018-19.

Blackhawks' Erik Gustafsson: Adds helper Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gustafsson recorded an assist in Thursday's 7-5 loss to the Canucks.

Gustafsson has six points in his last 10 games, looking much more like the 60-point breakout star from last year than his cold start to 2019-20. The Swede is at 17 points, 72 shots on goal and 54 hits through 41 contests. Fantasy owners should still be cautious with the 27-year-old.

Blackhawks' Erik Gustafsson: Scores with man advantage
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gustafsson picked up a power-play goal in Sunday's 3-2 shootout victory over the Blue Jackets.

Gustaffson has scored only five times this season but twice he's tickled twine on Chicago power plays. Averaging over three minutes of power-play ice time per night, he has not been lacking for opportunities, yet Gustaffson only has 16 points through 39 games. He hasn't been the same player that we saw a year ago when Gustafsson finished with 60 points, 100 hits and 115 blocked shots.

Blackhawks' Erik Gustafsson: Registers assist
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gustafsson picked up an assist and two shots on goal in Saturday's 5-3 win over the Avalanche.

Gustafsson found Kirby Dach for the game-tying goal at 11:50 of the third period, the second of four tallies for the Blackhawks in the final 20 minutes. The Swedish blueliner has points in five of his last six games, which has him at 15 points, 62 shots and 52 hits through 36 contests for the year.

Blackhawks' Erik Gustafsson: Contributes power-play goal
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gustafsson scored on the power play and had three shots Thursday in a 4-1 victory over Winnipeg.

Gustafsson provided the Blackhawks with some insurance midway through the third period when his power-play goal gave Chicago a 3-1 lead. It was his fourth goal of the season but first since Nov. 19, a stretch of 14 games without one. Gustafsson exploded for 17 goals and 60 points in 2018-19, but he hasn't yet been able to replicate that magic. He has 14 points in 35 games so far.

Blackhawks' Erik Gustafsson: Generates helper in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gustafsson supplied an assist and three shots on goal in Saturday's 4-3 loss to the Blues.

Gustafsson had the secondary helper on Brandon Saad's opening goal 19 seconds into the middle frame. The Swedish defenseman has recorded assists in consecutive games, and he now has 12 points through 32 outings this season. Gustafsson has added 44 hits, 55 shots and 19 PIM.

Blackhawks' Erik Gustafsson: Picks up power-play assist
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gustafsson recorded a power-play assist and two PIM in Saturday's 7-3 loss to the Avalanche.

Gustafsson set up Patrick Kane for the tally in the third period. The Swedish defenseman is up to nine points (three on the power play) in 25 games this season. Gustafsson has added 38 shots on goal and 31 hits, but his offense is far shy of the 60-point campaign he assembled in 2018-19.

Blackhawks' Erik Gustafsson: Climbing out of offensive doldrums
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gustafsson scored a goal on two shots and had three blocks in Tuesday's 4-2 loss to Carolina.

Gustafsson got the Blackhawks on the board in the third period with his third goal of the season, all of which have come over the last four games. The 27-year-old broke through last year with 17 goals and 60 points in 79 games, but slumped out of the gate this season with just four points in his first 16 contests. His current goal-scoring run might indicate he's finally turning the corner offensively.

Blackhawks' Erik Gustafsson: Second goal in as many games
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gustafsson scored a goal on two shots and had a pair of hits in Saturday's 7-2 win over the Predators.

Gustafsson suddenly has goals in back-to-back games after being held without one in his first 16 outings. With just six points in 18 games this season, Gustafsson hasn't come close to replicating the production rate that allowed him to rack up a career-high 60 points a season ago. It's entirely possible his 2018-19 will ultimately prove to be an outlier, but he did have a combined 30 points in 76 games over his first two seasons. Even if he can settle in somewhere in between, that still makes him a useful fantasy commodity.

Blackhawks' Erik Gustafsson: Breaks point drought with tally
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gustafsson scored a goal, went plus-2 and delivered four hits in Wednesday's 5-3 win over the Golden Knights.

Gustafsson had gone 11 games without a point, and had even served as a healthy scratch once in that span. The Swedish defenseman still has only a goal and four helpers in 17 appearances this season, making a repeat of last year's 60-point performance highly unlikely.

Blackhawks' Erik Gustafsson: Healthy scratch Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gustafsson will be a healthy scratch for Saturday's game against L.A.

It's been a frustrating start to the season for Gustafsson, who has only picked up four assists through his first 11 games after breaking out with 17 goals and 60 points in 79 games last campaign. The 27-year-old Swede likely won't be out of the lineup for long, but it's starting to look like last year's performance was an anomaly rather than a sign of things to come.

Blackhawks' Erik Gustafsson: Two assists in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gustafsson assisted on a pair of goals and had two shots in Chicago's 4-3 loss to Philadelphia on Friday.

The 27-year-old defenseman assisted on Alex DeBrincat's power-play goal in the second period and later set up Patrick Kane in the third period. Gustafsson was one of the NHL's breakout players in 2018-19, amassing 17 goals and 60 points in 79 games after having combined for just five goals and 30 points in 76 games over his first two NHL seasons.

Blackhawks' Erik Gustafsson: Monster effort in OT loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gustafsson registered three assists, six hits, four PIM and a plus-2 rating in a 4-3 overtime loss to the Jets.

Imagine what he could have done in a win. Gustafsson is up to 59 points (17 tallies, 42 helpers) in 76 games, with 98 hits and 110 blocked shots. He hasn't been known for time in the sin bin with only 34 PIM, but he's done enough scoring to have widespread fantasy relevance this year.

Blackhawks' Erik Gustafsson: Lights lamp Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gustafsson netted his 17th goal of the season in Saturday's 3-2 overtime loss to the Kings.

Gustafsson finishes March with five goals and four helpers in 14 games, giving him 56 points in 75 appearances this season. It's an unexpected emergence for the 27-year-old blueliner. Gustafsson's added 92 hits, 108 blocked shots and 150 shots on goal to make him useful across most fantasy formats.

Blackhawks' Erik Gustafsson: Picks pair of apples
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gustafsson notched two assists, two hits and two blocked shots in Thursday's 5-4 win over the Sharks.

Gustafsson reached 55 points in 74 games, easily the best of his three campaigns with the Blackhawks. The Swedish blueliner also has 147 shots and 108 blocked shots in his breakout campaign.

Blackhawks' Erik Gustafsson: Lights lamp Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gustafsson netted a goal on seven shots in Monday's 3-2 overtime loss to the Canucks.

Gustafsson also added three hits and three blocked shots in a well-rounded outing. The Swedish blueliner is up to 51 points in 69 games (14 goals, 37 assists), although the goal Monday was just his fourth point in eight games in March. He's been a revelation in the fantasy realm for those who can stomach his minus-11 rating.
