Patrick Sharp scored the only goal in Chicago's 1-0 win over the Boston Bruins.

Sharp is back with the Blackhawks after spending the last two seasons with the Dallas Stars. The veteran forward has had issues with his hip in the last year, but the Hawks are hoping he'll be healthy enough to contribute on a regular basis in 2017-18. Sharp had eight goals and 10 assists in 48 games with Dallas last season.

If Alex DeBrincat and Nick Schmaltz nail down second-line jobs alongside Patrick Kane, Patrick Sharp will team with Artem Anisimov on what could be a very good third line.

The Hawks' first unit will likely feature Jonathan Toews, Brandon Saad and Richard Panik. If DeBrincat, Schmaltz and Kane are the team's second line, then Sharp and Anisimov will team up with another winger to form the club's third unit. Of course this is not an ideal situation for Sharp, but Anisimov is a good player and Sharp should get power-play ice time making him draft worthy.

Patrick Sharp has looked good in Blackhawks' camp thus far.

He performed very well in the fitness testing at the start of camp and has looked fast skating after hip surgery this past March. It is unlcear if Sharp will line up on the Hawks' second line alongside Patrick Kane, or as a third-line center. Much will depend on Nick Schmultz's performance and whether he is capable of holding down a second-line role. Stay tuned.

Patrick Sharp (hip) expects to be ready for training camp.

Sharp anticipates getting into some preseason action after he had hip surgery near the end of the 2016-17 campaign. He could line up alongside Patrick Kane this year, which could give him a significant boost if he can stay healthy.
Sep 11 - 3:33 PM

Blackhawks coach Joel Quenneville raised the possibility of Patrick Sharp playing with Patrick Kane.

Sharp is coming off a terrible season with the Dallas Stars where he scored eight goals and 18 points in 48 contests. He's campaign was brought to an end due to hip surgery, but he should be fine by training camp. He signed a one-year contract with Chicago and that reunion might do him some good. Playing alongside a talent like Kane would certainly help him substantially too. Sharp is a risk as at the age of 35 he might simply be entering the twilight of his career, but if the Blackhawks intend to use him as a top-six forward then there's also bounce back potential there.

Patrick Sharp, whose 2016-17 campaign ended due to hip surgery, should be ready for training camp.

"I know where I have to be physically and mentally to start the season," Sharp said. "And the hip surgery, the time I've given myself for that surgery is plenty. I'm pushing it pretty hard in the gym, I've been on the ice in full equipment skating, so I don't anticipate any problems. I still have a ton of time to be ready for day one and be ready for training camp." The Blackhawks inked Sharp to a one-year, $800,000 contract that could balloon to $1 million with games played bonuses. Sharp is coming off a rough campaign where he was limited to eight goals and 18 points in 48 contests.
Jul 3 - 4:26 AM

Patrick Sharp has signed a one-year contract with a base salary of $800,000.

Sharps can boost the value of this contract another $200,000 if he reaches a games played bonus. This is the second time around for Sharp in Chicago as he was a very productive winger for most of the 10 years he was with the Hawks from 2005-2104. Although Sharp had a terrible injury-filled 2016-17 season (18 points in 48 games with Dallas), he can still be an effective top-six NHL forward and will likely earn many of the bonuses in his contract. If he lines up alongside Patrick Kane and Artem Anisimov as projected, Sharp could once again score 30 goals making him a very nice bounce-back pick.

According to Mark Lazerus of the Chicago Sun Times, Patrick Sharp will be signing with the Chicago Blackhawks when free agency opens at noon ET.

Sharp spent 10 seasons with the Blackhawks between 2005 and 2015 before being traded to the Dallas Stars. The 35-year-old had eight goals and 18 points in 48 games with Dallas in 2016-17. Sharp underwent hip surgery in March, but he could still be a good pick up at the right price. He'll definitely be taking a pay cut from the $5.9 million he had been making over the last few years.

Patrick Sharp could rejoin the Chicago Blackhawks when he becomes a free agent tomorrow, per TSN's Bob McKenzie.

Sharp spent parts of 10 seasons with the Blackhawks between 2005 and 2015. He'll need to take a significant pay cut from the $5.9 million per season he had been making over the last five years if he wants to return to Chicago. The 35-year-old eight goals and 18 points in 48 games with the Stars last season.
Jun 30 - 9:09 PM

TSN's Bob McKenzie is reporting that at least nine teams have reached out to pending UFA Patrick Sharp so far.

Our last report on Sharp had him linked to a return to Chicago. Considering his three Stanley Cups, we are not surprised to see a number of teams interested in him. He finished the season with only eight goals and 18 points in 48 games, but he was bothered by injuries for most of the season. He still has the capabilities to be a solid contributor to any team, and his playoff experience would be welcome in any locker room around the league. He is only one season removed from a 20 goal and 55 point season.

At the NHL Draft, Stars GM Jim Nill said he "would like to sit down" with pending unrestricted free agent Patrick Sharp.

Sharp had 18 points in 48 games last season before was shut down in late March for hip surgery. The 35-year-old is coming off of a five year contract worth $5.9 million per season, and will certainly receive significantly less money or term. The Blackhawks' tendency to reacquire old players was reaffirmed last week in the Brandon Saad trade and perhaps heading back to Chicago could be a fit for Sharp if he can't come to an agreement with the Stars.

Patrick Sharp will undergo hip surgery on Tuesday.

Sharp has eight goals and 18 points in 48 games this season. The surgery will end Sharp's season, or at least keep him out for what little remains. This has been a very difficult season for Sharp, who had suffered two concussions and has played through his hip issue. On top of that, his father is battling leukemia. "It's been tough," Sharp said. "I knew it was going to be a challenging year with my father and what he has been going through. Looking back on the season, I probably could have handled my emotions a little better maybe."

Patrick Sharp will probably have surgery on his undisclosed injury when the season is over.

"Eventually, you probably have to get something fixed up, it's just a matter of time, really," Sharp said. "But in the meantime, I can skate and I can play, and I'm going to go out there and help any way I can." He had five shots on goal against his former Chicago teammates on Thursday night. Sharp hasn't recorded a point in seven straight games and he has only 18 points in 47 outings this year. It makes you wonder if Dallas should step in and just shut him down.
Mar 24 - 10:45 AM

Patrick Sharp produced two points in the Dallas Stars' 4-2 upset victory over the Capitals in Washington Monday night.

Sharp, who will eventually need surgery on an ailment that he and the Stars have kept quiet for weeks, scored his eighth goal of the season late in the third period and notched his 10th assist early in the first period. He assisted on Devin Shore's 11th goal. The Stars handed the caps their first home loss in 16 games, dating back to Dec. 29. Also scoring goals for Dallas were Radek Faksa (10th) and Jason Spezza (11th). The Stars had a 3-0 lead 15 minutes into the first period.
