Date:

Patrick Sharp will continue to play alongside Andrew Shaw and Bryan Bickell.

The Hawks will ice the same lineup against the Islanders as they did against Boston. Jonathan Toews, who is just fine after being boarded Thursday night, will skate between Brandon Saad and Marian Hossa, while Brad Richards will center Patrick Kane and Kris Versteeg. Although Sharp is a very skilled hockey player and can create his own offence, he would have more fantasy value if he played with either Toews or Kane as he has done in the past.

Patrick Sharp picked up an assist in his return to the lineup Tuesday night.

He was also credited with five shots on goal in 17:22 of ice time. Sharp was playing in his first game since Nov. 4 because of a knee injury. "The first couple of periods were a little shaky but I don't think that was from missing hockey, that was just playing the opposite side," said Sharp, who played right wing even though he has spent most of his career on the left side. "By the third period I felt back to normal. I know I can get better but it was fine for the first game." Sharp set up a goal by linemate Bryan Bickell in a 3-2 shootout win over New Jersey.

The Chicago Blackhawks will get Patrick Sharp (knee) back Tuesday night.

Sharp hasn't played since Nov. 4. He was off to a somewhat slow start with nine points in 13 contests, but Sharp is nevertheless one of the Blackhawks' best goal scorers. Just keep in mind that it might take him a few games to shake off the rust after his prolonged absence.

Patrick Sharp (knee) skated with Andrew Shaw and Bryan Bickell during Monday's practice.

"The team's been playing great, no question about that," Sharp said. "I'm just trying to come back and find a role, play the way I know I can, and try to help the team even more. ... If I get in the lineup, then I'll do whatever I'm told." The Blackhawks have posted an 11-3-0 record while he's been sidelined with a knee injury. Sharp is expected to be back in the lineup on Tuesday night.

Coach Joel Quenneville said Patrick Sharp (knee) is likely to play Tuesday against New Jersey.

He missed his 14th straight game Saturday, but skated in the morning. Quenneville said afterward that there's "a good chance (Sharp) is going to play on that trip and likely ... the first game."
Dec 8 - 11:47 AM

Patrick Sharp's long awaited return may finally come to an end on Tuesday night against New Jersey.

Sharp has hasn't played since Nov. 4th, or about five weeks if he returns as expected. He scored nine points in his first 13 games prior to the injury, though.
Dec 6 - 7:25 PM

Patrick Sharp's return to action could lead to a line shuffle in Chicago.

Sharp is scheduled to re-join the Blackhawk lineup sometime next week after missing over a month with a knee injury. The question is where will he play? Sharp has been a staple in the Hawks' top six for a few seasons but the team has played well with Kris Versteeg on the second unit alongside Brad Richards and Patrick Kane and Brandon Saad on the first unit alongside Jonathan Toews and Marian Hossa. That alignement would leave Sharp on the third line. We suspect that Versteeg ultimately will be demoted down a line but it may take a few games after Sharp's return before that happens.
Dec 6 - 12:51 PM

Patrick Sharp (knee) should rejoin the Blackhawks' lineup early next week.

"I'm feeling pretty good, the body's responding well. I'm just trying to get myself ready for game shape," Sharp said. "It's just a matter of getting out there with practices with a group of guys. I've been out there mostly by myself, skating and shooting. So it's nice to receive passes and fine-tune the timing." There's a chance that Sharp's return will happen on Tuesday against New Jersey, but it's too early to count on that. He has three goals and nine points in 13 contests in 2014-15.

Patrick Sharp (knee) won't play Friday night.

It's looking like he won't be available to return until next week during Chicago's road trip. Sharp resumed contact drills on Wednesday and he's very close to playing again.
Dec 4 - 2:12 PM

Patrick Sharp (knee) took part in contact drills on Wednesday.

Blackhawks coach Joel Quenneville thinks it "might be pressing it" to pencil Sharp in for Friday's game though. Chicago has had to get by without Sharp since Nov. 4.

Patrick Sharp (knee) joined his teammates for Tuesday's practice.

Coach Joel Quenneville said Sharp is listed as day-to-day for now, but the team will have a better idea of his status "over the next day or so." Sharp might be ready to return on Friday or Saturday when the Blackhawks play Montreal and Nashville, respectively. He has been out of action since Nov. 4 with a knee injury.
Dec 3 - 9:26 AM

Patrick Sharp (lower body) will remain in Chicago when the team wraps up their road trip this weekend with games in Anaheim and Los Angeles.

That shouldn't come as a surprise. He's been working out back home while recovering from a knee injury. "(Sharp) is skating but he's not going to come on this trip," coach Joel Quenneville confirmed. "We'll see how he does when we get back."
Nov 27 - 11:44 AM

Patrick Sharp skated on his own in Chicago while his teammates are on a west coast road trip.

Sharp is on the long-term injury list with a leg injury and is just starting to get back to hockey activities. Chicago coach Joel Quenneville indicated that Sharp did OK in his first twirl on the ice since sustaining his injury. The hope is that Sharp will be able to join practices sometime next week with a view of returning to action the first week in December.

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.
