Kurashev registered a power-play assist, three hits and two shots on goal in Saturday's 5-4 loss to the Panthers.
Kurashev set up Kirby Dach's tally at 12:28 of the third period. The assist ended a six-game point drought for Kurashev. The Swiss forward has cooled off to close out 2020-21. He's at 15 points (five on the power play), 59 shots on net, 22 hits and a minus-9 rating through 49 contests.
Kurashev recorded an assist and two shots on net in Thursday's 5-1 loss to the Stars.
Kurashev had the secondary helper on Dominik Kubalik's tally, which was set up by Vinnie Hinostroza. That trio has been the Blackhawks' second line for the last two games, and they've been effective together. For the year, Kurashev has 13 points, 50 shots and a minus-10 rating. The Swiss forward could potentially move down the lineup if head coach Jeremy Colliton shuffles his lines.
Kurashev was promoted to the active roster and played in Saturday's 3-0 loss to the Predators.
Kurashev recorded one shot on goal in 14:33 of ice time. The 21-year-old forward is expected to fill a middle-six role. He has 12 points, 47 shots on net and a minus-11 rating through 38 games.
Kurashev was assigned to the taxi squad Friday, per CapFriendly.
Kurashev only missed Opening Night this season. Since then, he has 12 points in 37 games in a middle-six role. He's gone six contests without a point, so perhaps head coach Jeremy Colliton wants to mix up his forwards Saturday versus the Predators.
Kurashev tallied a goal on two shots Monday in a 6-3 loss to Florida.
Kurashev broke a 1-1 tie midway through the second period, one-timing a Mattias Janmark feed in front of the net for his seventh goal of the year. Offense has been tougher to come by as of late for the 21-year-old, who had collected just one goal in his previous 11 games entering the night.
Kurashev scored a power-play goal on two shots in Wednesday's 2-0 win over the Red Wings.
Kurashev made a difficult play look easy, receiving a pass from Duncan Keith and then splitting the Red Wings' penalty-killing defenders right down the middle before scoring on Jonathan Bernier in the second period. The 21-year-old Kurashev is up to five goals, nine points, 22 shots on net and four power-play points in 17 appearances. He often sees sheltered minutes -- his 10:07 was lowest among Blackhawks skaters Wednesday, but his production is at least worth a look in deeper formats.
Kurashev recorded a power-play assist and two shots on goal in Thursday's 6-4 win over the Hurricanes.
Kurashev earned the secondary assist on Mattias Janmark's first-period marker. The 21-year-old Kurashev skated just 6:56 in Thursday's contest, compared to an average of 12:39 per game in 11 total outings this year, which includes Thursday. The Swiss forward has six points, 16 shots on goal and a minus-3 rating.
Kurashev scored a goal on his only shot in Tuesday's 4-3 shootout loss to Carolina.
The 21-year-old finished off a pretty passing play with the man advantage to get the Blackhawks on the board with 2:02 left in the first period. It was Kurashev's second straight game with a goal and gave him four in his first 10 NHL contests. He's worth at least keeping on your radar as long as he's centering a line with Patrick Kane.
Kurashev potted a goal and an assist with two shots in Sunday's 3-1 win over the Blue Jackets.
Kurashev opened the scoring in the first period with a tap-in to finish an odd-man rush, his third goal of the season. He later set up Patrick Kane's insurance marker with 6:20 left in regulation. It was the first two-point game of the season for the 21-year-old rookie, who centered Chicago's top line between Kane and Mattias Janmark.
The Blackhawks have loaned Kurashev to HC Lugano of Switzerland's NLA.
Kurashev spent the entirety of the 2019-20 campaign in the minors, notching seven goals and 19 points in 36 games with AHL Rockford. The 2018 fourth-round pick will begin the 2020-21 season in Switzerland, but he'll likely be recalled by the Blackhawks ahead of next season's training camp.
Kurashev picked up a goal and added two assists in AHL Rockford's 4-2 win over Toronto on Sunday.
Kursahev has been playing much better of late following a slow start to the season. He has points in four of his past eight games and registered at least three shots on goal in four of those contests, as well. For the season, Kurashev has four goals and 13 points in 24 games. The numbers won't blow anyone away, but they're solid totals for a 20-year-old first-year Swiss pro.
Kurashev scored his first goal of the season in AHL Rockford's 3-1 win over Toronto on Wednesday.
It took nine games, but Kurashev is finally on the board. The Swiss import has found the transition to professional hockey difficult, as evidenced by the fact he has just 13 shots on goal in those nine contests, but Kurashev was a productive offensive player in the QMJHL and dominant for his home country at last year's World Juniors, so he remains a target for dynasty owners. Kurashev turned just 20 years of age last month.
Kurashev (knee/shoulder) practiced with the team Saturday, Charlie Roumeliotis of NBC Sports Chicago reports.
Kurashev sat out of Friday's practice after arriving at camp hurt, but his absence didn't last long. Expect the 19-year-old to play in Monday's preseason game versus Washington as he competes for a bottom-six spot with the Blackhawks.
Kurashev won't practice Friday due to knee and shoulder contusions.
Kurashev's injury doesn't sound overly serious, so at this point it'd be surprising to see him miss Monday's preseason matchup with Washington. The 19-year-old forward will compete for a bottom-six spot on the big club's roster during training camp, but he'll almost certainly spend the majority of the 2019-20 campaign with AHL Rockford.
Kurashev made his professional debut in AHL Rockford's 2-1 loss to Texas on Friday.
He finished the contest scoreless to go along with a minus-1 rating. A fourth-round selection of Chicago in 2018, Kurashev had a breakout season. He played brilliantly for his native Switzerland at the World Junior Championship and was equally effective (29 goals, 65 points in 59 games) for his QMJHL club in Quebec. Kurashev signed his entry-level contract with the Blackhawks in early March.
Kurashev signed a three-year, entry-level contract with the Blackhawks on Tuesday, Mark Lazerus of The Athletic reports.
Kurashev has been highly productive in the QMJHL this season, racking up 28 goals and 62 points in 57 games. The 2018 fourth-round pick will remain in the juniors for the rest of the campaign, but he'll likely make the jump to the AHL in 2019-20.
Kurashev picked up a hat trick to lead Switzerland to a 4-0 win over Denmark at the 2019 IIHF World Junior Championship on Saturday.
In a tournament that features some of the very best prospects the NHL has to offer and the most talented under-20 players in the world, Kurashev has been arguably the tournament's most surprising player in the early going. His five goals are tied with Canada's Max Comtois for the tournament lead and he is also tied with Comtois for second in scoring with six points in three games. To say that Kurashev doesn't have the supporting cast Comtois does would be the understatement of the century. A fourth-round pick of Chicago in 2018, Kurashev has always been long on talent and short on production. With 43 points in 33 games for QMJHL Quebec this season, it seems as if the light bulb has finally gone off for Kurashev.
