Antoine Vermette has returned to the Arizona Coyotes on a two-year contract worth $7.5M which includes a No-Movement Clause.
Sometimes there's no place like home. Other than his foray with Chicago, Vermette has been with the Coyotes franchise since 2011-12 when he was acquired in a trade from Columbus. Vermette has produced 53 goals and 111 points in 215 career games with the Coyotes, and his signing helps alleviate very different cap problems with Arizona and Chicago respectively. Jul 1 - 8:02 PM

While there are many Chicago Blackhawks that had won the Stanley Cup before, this was Antoine Vermette's first championship.

Chicago acquired Vermette from Arizona in February to provide the Blackhawks with some depth. He had four goals and seven points in 20 contests while averaging 13:07 minutes of ice time. "It's surreal," said Vermette after winning the Cup. "It's probably something you've heard in the past from different players but it's tough to describe exactly what's going on right now. At the end of the day you want it to sink in and enjoy every moment." He's scheduled to become an unrestricted free agent this summer and Chicago will likely have to let him go due to their cap situation.

With the Chicago Blackhawks just one win away from another Stanley Cup win, Antoine Vermette admitted he's having fun now.

"Right off the get-go was very [tough] for me," Vermette said. "This is a good group, obviously a special team, you have to come here and try to help the team. This is a lot of fun right now, but there’s a lot of work still ahead." Vermette struggled when he first got to Chicago but he has been clutch this postseason. The Hawks paid a first-round pick to get him in February and they can now safely say that the acquisition has paid off.

Antoine Vermette continues to be "clutch" for the Chicago Blackhawks, as he scored the decisive tally in a 2-1 win in Game 5 against the Tampa Bay Lightning.

Vermette only has four goals in this postseason, yet three of them have been GWGs. It really hasn't been that great of a playoff run (Kris Versteeg probably deserves the most credit for Saturday's tally), but his big tallies may make him marketable on the UFA market nonetheless.

Antoine Vermette found the back of the net for the eventual Game 1 winner of Wednesday's Stanley Cup Final.

Vermette had just one shot on goal, and made the most of it to be sure. He has Teuvo Teravainen to thank for the set-up, as the youngster stripped JT Brown to set up the turnover and shot. Vermette now has two goals and four points over his last five games, and has three goals and six points across 15 postseason games.

Antoine Vermette admitted that it was difficult to be a healthy scratch in Game 3, but he's glad he was able to bounce back and help his team win in Game 4.

Vermette scored the double overtime winner in Game 4 on Saturday night after being scratched in Game 3. "Yeah, [but] at the same time, at this time of the year you don’t want to make [it about] the individual or a personal story," said Vermette, "That main focus is about the team’s success and that’s all that matters. I’m glad we won tonight."

Antoine Vermette scored the game-winning goal in the Blackhawks’ 5-4 double-overtime triumph against the Ducks on Saturday night.

A healthy scratch in Game 3, Vermette is the reason the Western Conference final is shifting to Anaheim tied up at two. His gaffe, along with Kimmo Timonen’s, also led to a Ducks goal in the third period, but he atoned for that mistake big time. Brandon Saad (goal, two assists), Jonathan Toews (goal, assist), Brent Seabrook and Patrick Kane notched the other goals for Chicago. At one point in the third period, Chicago had a 3-1 lead … however, that ended up being short-lived and it went down 4-3 after giving up three goals in 37 seconds, before tying the game on Kane's power-play goal.

Antoine Vermette will be back in the Chicago lineup for Game 4 against the Ducks Saturday night.

He was a healthy scratch for Game 3 but will be back centering the Hawks' third line alongside Teuvo Teravainen and Patrick Sharp.

Antoine Vermette will be a healthy scratch in Thursday's game against the Anaheim Ducks.

Joining Vermette in the press box will be Teuvo Teravainen, David Rundblad, Daniel Carcillo, Michael Paliotta and Antti Raanta. Vermette was acquired from the Coyotes right around the trade deadline but he hasn't produced as much as Chicago would have hoped. It's still surprising to see him be a scratch at this point in the playoffs. The 32-year-old has one goal and one assist in 10 postseason games in 2015.
May 21 - 8:02 PM

Antoine Vermette and the Blackhawks have been dominating Minnesota on faceoffs during Round 2 of the postseason.

After the first three games of the series, Chicago has won 57 percent of the draws and Vermette has emerged victorious on 69 percent of his puck drops. In seven appearances, he has a 63 percent success rate on 94 total faceoffs to go with a goal and an assist.
May 7 - 6:27 PM

Antoine Vermette potted his first goal of the postseason on Tuesday night.

He tied at the game at 1-1 shortly after Nashville opened the scoring in Game 4. Vermette didn't play in the first two games of the series, but he's dressed in both games for the Blackhawks back in Chicago to help his team go up 3-1 in the series.
Apr 22 - 10:34 AM

Antoine Vermette will play in game three of Chicago's best-of-seven series against the Nashville Predators.

Vermette was a healthy scratch in games one and two, so he will be making his 2015 playoff debut. The Hawks paid a big price to acquire Vermette before the trade deadline but he has yet to deliver for them. It will be interesting to see if he could develop some chemistry with his new teammates before the playoffs end for Chicago.
Apr 19 - 1:23 PM

Don't be surprised if Antoine Vermette draws back into the Chicago lineup for Game 3 against the Predators Sunday.

He has been a healthy scratch for the first two games of the series but may get a chance to suit up as the Hawks need a spark for Game 3 after falling flat in a 6-2 loss to Nashville Friday night.
Apr 18 - 11:32 AM

Antoine Vermette will probably be a healthy scratch again in Game 2 versus Nashville.

Coach Joel Quenneville said it's "not likely, but something we'll look at" when he was asked if there would be changes to the lineup going into Friday's match. He joined David Rundblad, Andrew Desjardins, Kyle Cumiskey, Daniel Carcillo, Michael Paliotta and Antti Raanta as the team scratches.
Apr 17 - 10:33 AM

Antoine Vermette will be a healthy scratch Wednesday in Game 1 at Nashville.

He contributed just three assists in 19 games with Chicago after he was acquired from Arizona. Vermette's ice time dwindled down the stretch and he'll be in the press box when the playoffs begin,
