Patrick Sharp (lower body) is on the long-term injured reserve list.

A player put on the LTIR has to miss at least 10 games and 24 days. Sharp hasn't played since Nov. 4 and he's already been sidelined for six contests, so the decision to put him on the long-term list shouldn't be regarded as a grim indicator. Sharp was originally projected to miss three-to-four weeks, so based on that timetable, he wasn't expected to return for at least another week anyways.

Patrick Sharp (lower body) is close to getting back on the ice.

He might join the Blackhawks on their road trip at some point, but he is "doubtful" to play. When Sharp is able to resume skating it may not be long before he is back in the lineup.

Chicago coach Joel Quenneville said that Patrick Sharp is slated to miss three-to-four weeks with a leg injury.

Sharp was hurt this past Tuesday against Montreal when he was hit by Alexei Emelin in the third period. He has three goals and nine points in 13 games, which ties him with Patrick Kane for second on the team in scoring. Sharp will also be missed on the power play, where he leads Chicago in average ice time (4:15) per game.

Reports surfacing on Tuesday that Blackhawks' star Patrick Sharp could miss at least month of action.

Joel Quenneville did hint strongly of significant time being missed by his star player yesterday and this helps to confirm that. It likely means players like Brad Richards and Kris Versteeg will see more quality scoring ice-time. "It’s never easy, but we’ve been through it before," captain Jonathan Toews said. "He’s a big part of our offense. Whenever you have an injury to a key player, it’s in a way an opportunity for some other guys. (They) will try to step in and make up for that as much as they can." Sharp had nine points in 13 games before the injury.

Patrick Sharp suffered a lower-body injury in Tuesday's win over Montreal.

He had to be helped off the ice after he was in the corner by Alexei Emelin during the third period. "Sharp is probably going to be out for a bit," coach Joel Quenneville said. "We'll know more in the next day or so. We'll see."

Patrick Sharp’s two-point night wasn’t enough in the Blackhawks’ 3-2 loss to the Blues on Saturday.

Sharp began the scoring, with a power-play tally 1:02 into the game. Chicago was unable to beat Brian Elliott again until 2:37 into the third period, when Kris Versteeg did so, with help from Sharp and Brad Richards. Sharp has three goals and eight points this season. Marian Hossa and Patrick Kane picked up the other assists.

Patrick Sharp had two helpers in a 4-0 win over the Philadelphia Flyers Tuesday.

He had assists on both of Patrick Kane's power-play goals. Sharp has registered six points in six games this campaign. If there's one complaint about his start to the 2014-15 season it's that Sharp has two goals on a whopping 29 shots. However, fantasy owners probably aren't concerned with that right now.

Patrick Sharp will be in the Chicago lineup Saturday night against Buffalo.

He didn't practice on Friday but it was just a maintenance day off. Look for Sharp to line up in his usual spot alongside Jonathan Toews and Marian Hossa on the Hawks' first line against Buffalo Saturday night.

Patrick Sharp buried a goal and an assist in the Blackhawks' 3-2 shootout victory over Central Division rival Dallas on Thursday night.

Patrick Sharp's agent, Rick Curran, has received multiple assurances from Chicago GM Stan Bowman that his client won't be traded.

"There's no truth to any rumor that Patrick Sharp is available to trade," Curran said. "He absolutely is not available. I had a meeting with Stan Bowman a week ago to ask him what was going to happen. He said, 'I don't know what's going to happen, but I can tell you that Patrick Sharp is not available right now.' When the Sportsnet guy, Nick Kypreos, erroneously made a statement and everyone went crazy, I called Stan again. I asked, 'Has anything changed?' He said, 'absolutely not.' He's full of [expletive]." The Blackhawks have been linked to Ryan Kesler and Jason Spezza in trade rumors and Sharp's name surfaced as a trade candidate, but those reports appear to be false.

If the Blackhawks re-sign stars Jonathan Toews and Patrick Kane to large extended contracts this month, there is a chance Patrick Sharp may have to be moved to deal with cap issues.

The Hawks have made no secret about their desire to ink Toews and Kane to lucrative long-term deals before July 1st. If they do, the team may not be able to afford to keep Sharp, who would fetch a good haul of young players in the trade market. Stay tuned, this could get interesting.

Patrick Sharp did not say when asked if he was hurt during the Stanley Cup playoffs.

Sharp was at Wrigley Field taking batting practice on Friday and hit one to the warning track. He had taken batting practice once before at U.S. Cellular Field, the home of the White Sox, where he homered, so playing at Wrigley was another honor. Getting back to hockey, Sharp would not say if he was hurt as he struggled in the Conference final. "Everyone has something going on at this time of year," Sharp said. "To bring that kind of stuff up sounds like I'm making excuses. I'm not going to talk about that kind of stuff."

Patrick Sharp skated on the third line with Marcus Kruger and Ben Smith in Game 7 versus Los Angeles.

"Over the years, I've played a little bit with (Kruger)," Sharp said. "I've played with him the last couple of games. We know how to support each other and what makes us successful." Kruger picked up an assist on one of Sharp's two goals in Chicago's 5-4 overtime loss to the Kings. Sharp spent most the regular season on the top unit with Jonathan Toews and Marian Hossa, but coach Joel Quenneville is never timid about mixing his combinations.
