The Chicago Blackhawks have re-acquired Kris Versteeg from the Florida Panthers in exchange for Jimmy Hayes and Dylan Olsen.

Versteeg was a valuable member of the Blackhawks during their Cup winning run in 2010 but was dealt to Toronto during that off-season as Chicago faced severe cap issues for the next season. He was then dealt to Philadelphia from Toronto and made his way to Florida as the Flyers dealt him for a draft pick in the 2011 off-season. "We're really excited," Blackhawks general manager Stan Bowman said. "Looking at our team this year, we're off to a really good start. I think we've come out of the gates the way we wanted to, [but] we're always trying to improve. I think just the experience and versatility he brings to the table [are key], on top of the fact that he's a player our coaches know well and our players are familiar with. He has a lot of energy and competitiveness and he's got great skill level to complement our players, so we think it's a great fit." Look for Versteeg to see third line duty the rest of the way in Chicago.

Tyler Seguin (knee) skated with his teammates on Thursday for the first time.

He appears to be ahead of schedule in his recovery. "Tyler is really closing in on 'day to day' for us," coach Lindy Ruff said. "So I would say probably within a week...or sooner. It depends on how he responds to some heavy workouts here today and tomorrow." Seguin is feeling better but he knows he still has work to do. Still, it's encouraging to see that he's moving in the right direction.

Trevor Daley will be out of action for two-to-four weeks, according to coach Lindy Ruff.

He was injured on a knee-on-knee hit by Islanders winger Matt Martin on Tuesday. Martin received a one-game suspension on the play.
Mar 5 - 1:20 PM

Alex Ovechkin is listed as a game-time decision for Thursday's match against Minnesota because of a lower-body injury.

He didn't take part in the morning skate and his status will be determined during the pregame warmup. Ovechkin leads the league with 43 goals and he's tied with linemate Nicklas Backstrom for the most points in the NHL with 67 in 65 games.

Brandon Dubinsky (concussion) will be back in the lineup on Friday.

That's a quick recovery after he suffered a concussion last Thursday against Montreal. Dubinsky has eight goals, 22 points and 112 hits in 34 games this season.
Mar 5 - 12:14 PM

Roberto Luongo (shoulder) won't be available for Florida's next two games.

That means he is out for Thursday and Saturday, but the Panthers hope to have him back next Thursday when they host Winnipeg. Consider Luongo day-to-day for now, which is good news for Florida.

Dan Ellis will get the nod for Florida on Thursday against Dallas.

In an interesting twist it was a year ago today that Florida acquired Ellis in a trade with the Stars for Tim Thomas. Ellis hasn't seen any NHL action this season.

Dustin Byfuglien exited Wednesday's game against Ottawa in the second period with an upper-body injury.

The Jets have an off-day Thursday, but the coach Paul Maurice said they should know more about Byfuglien's status. Hopefully, for the Jets and his fantasy owners it isn't anything serious.

John Gibson made 38 saves in a 3-1 Anaheim win over Montreal on Wednesday.

Gibson was very close to the shutout in this game but the Canadiens scored with less than two minutes left in the game. Nevertheless, he was outstanding on this night as he calmly out-played Carey Price on the other end. Frederik Andersen was very good in his first start back from injury last night in Arizona so it will be interesting to see how the Ducks spread out the starts for the rest of the season. Gibson is 9-5 with a 2.41 goals-against-average and .924 save percentage in 15 appearances. He is a great start whenever Andersen is unable to go or needs a rest.
Mar 5 - 1:52 AM

Evgeni Malkin scored the lone goal for the Penguins in a 3-1 loss to Colorado on Wednesday.

It was his third goal in two games and fifth in four as he stays red hot. The Russian stud has 12 points during a six game points streak. Malkin has 27 goals and 65 points in 58 games this season. He is one of the top fantasy players in all of hockey and everyone should know that he must be started in all formats every night.
Mar 5 - 1:28 AM

Gabriel Landeskog scored and added two helpers in Colorado's 3-1 win over Pittsburgh on Wednesday.

He was named the first star of the game and definitely deserved it. The Avalanche captain has been on a heck of streak lately with seven goals in his last 10 games. He has 12 total points over that stretch. After a slow start to the season, he has 17 goals and 43 points in 64 games this year. Jarome Iginla and Nathan MacKinnon added the other goals for Colorado.
Mar 5 - 1:18 AM

Semyon Varlamov turned aside 28-of-29 shots in a 3-1 win over Pittsburgh on Wednesday.

Overall it has been a difficult season but Varlamov now has six wins in this last nine starts as the Avs are trying to finish this season strong. He carries a 20-17-7 record to go with a 2.65 GAA and .918 save percentage into his next start.
