The Dallas Stars are not among the suitors for Blackhawks forward Patrick Sharp, according to a source.
"He's a great player, but he's not what we need right now," said a Stars official who asked to be listed as a source. "It's that simple." Dallas already has four forwards under big contracts. The team also expects Valeri Nichushkin and Brett Ritchie to compete for top-six minutes, so there doesn't appear to be interest in Sharp. Jun 25 - 3:01 PM

The Detroit Red Wings could be interested in acquiring Blackhawks forward Patrick Sharp.

The Blackhawks cap issues have been well-documented and they will have to find salary cap relief by trading a player like Sharp. Detroit has a young team and could use another goal scorer in their lineup. The fact that he is a right-handed shooter would also fill a need for the Red Wings.

The New York Post’s Larry Brooks expects the Penguins to try to trade for Blackhawks forward Patrick Sharp this offseason.

Penguins general manager Jim Rutherford wants to add a top-six, goal-scoring winger to pair with either Sidney Crosby or Evgeni Malkin. The Blackhawks will likely have to move a few key pieces in order to free up cap space this offseason, and Sharp, who has two years left on a contract with a $5.9 million cap hit, could be one shipped out of town. It remains to be seen whether the Penguins have what it takes to pull off a move like this, especially because they have several important pieces potentially leaving as well.

The Chicago Blackhawks demands for Patrick Sharp are reportedly sky high.

Chicago reportedly wants a first round pick, top-tier prospect, and a top-six forward on an entry-level contract. There's nothing wrong with them putting up a high price now so that they have something to work down from, but it would be shocking to see a team meet those demands. It is worth noting though that the weak UFA market might lead to Chicago getting more for him than some might suspect, even if they won't end up with everything they're demanding. Sharp had 16 goals and 43 points in 68 contests in 2014-15 and will turn 34 in December. He has two years left on his deal with a $5.9 million annual cap hit.

Patrick Sharp could be a trade candidate for the Blackhawks in the off-season.

He has a $5.9 million cap hit and two seasons left on his contract. "I haven't really put much thought into it," said Sharp. "It's been a whirlwind couple days. To win a third Stanley Cup in this city is something that I'll always remember. It's pretty special. It's a huge accomplishment and these last couple days have been crazy. I'm sure the next few days, when things wind down a little bit, that will be more of a topic of conversation." Predictably, GM Stan Bowman isn't thinking about moves just yet after winning the Stanley Cup, but once the new salary cap is announced the Blackhawks may be forced to make some tough decisions.

Patrick Sharp scored a goal in Saturday's 2-1 Game 5 win over Tampa in the Stanley Cup Final.

Antoine Vermette scored the game-winning goal in the third period, but it was Sharp who opened the scoring in the first period. Lightning goalie Ben Bishop came out of his net to play the puck, but he collided with defenseman Victor Hedman and Sharp was there to bury the loose puck into an open cage. "I just knew there was a collision and I found myself with a heck of an opportunity," Sharp said. "So make sure you put that one in." The 33-year-old now has five goals and 15 points in 22 games this postseason. The Blackhawks are one game away from winning the Stanley Cup.
Jun 14 - 9:34 AM

Patrick Sharp again appears set to play on the Blackhawks’ top line.

Take it for what it’s worth, as coaches will often show something in practice and tweak the lines at the start of the game. Sharp has spent a bunch of time on the third line, and now it seems he’ll get his second game in a row with Jonathan Toews in a role more suited for his skill set. Sharp has two assists and nine shots in the Stanley Cup Final. He has not scored since Game 2 of their second-round series, a span of 13 games without a goal. Sharp has four goals and 14 points in the playoffs.

Patrick Sharp was buzzing Wednesday night in Game 4 against Tampa Bay.

He wasn't able to end his goalless slump, which reached 13 straight playoff games, but he did earn an assist on a goal by Jonathan Toews shortly after he hit the post. Sharp skated with Toews and Marian Hossa in the match during his five-on-five playing time, as coach Joel Quenneville shook up his line combinations.

Patrick Sharp was apologetic after he took two bad penalties in the third period of Saturday's 4-3 loss to Tampa Bay.

"I take responsibility and apologize to our penalty killers for putting them under such stress," said Sharp. "We were battling and I guess my stick came up and clipped him. I didn’t mean to do it. It happens. I’ll take responsibility." Chicago was able to kill the first penalty, but Lightning defenseman Jason Garrison scored the game-winning goal while Sharp was in the box the second time.

Patrick Sharp took the high-sticking penalty that led to Tampa Bay's game-winning goal in Game 2 of the Stanley Cup Final.

It was a tough couple of minutes for Sharp, who took a slashing penalty at the 4:59 mark of the third frame (which Chicago was able to kill), and the high-sticking infraction at the 7:17 mark. Lightning defenseman Jason Garrison scored on the ensuing power play to take a 4-3 lead in the game. "Tough timing," coach Quenneville said of the penalties. "We just got the big goal [and] then we had to kill four minutes. Maybe [we were] a little tired on the kill the latter part of it. We did an outstanding job the first one; almost got through the second one."
Jun 7 - 9:15 AM

Patrick Sharp spoke about Chicago's confidence even when they down after the Blackhawks rallied in the third to beat Tampa Bay 2-1 in Game 1 of the Stanley Cup Final.

"We certainly believe in ourselves in our locker room, and we're never out of any game despite the score or how it looks out there," Sharp said. "Two big goals at the end to get the win." He talked about "trusting the process" and the win probably softened the blow after he logged a 2015 playoff-low of 10:58 of ice time. Sharp was credited with two shots and four hits in the match.
Jun 4 - 10:29 AM

The Blackhawks will look to lean on their experience in Game 7 of the Western Conference Final.

"It's very similar to just playing overtime, to be honest with you. Right from the drop of the puck in the first period, every shift is important like it always is," Patrick Sharp said. "It's magnified that much more in a Game 7. Our group has played plenty of overtimes, also Game 7s to draw experience from. I like the guys in our locker room; we get excited for opportunities like that [and] we don't shy away. We want the puck, want to score goals, play as well as we can." In some ways the Blackhawks are facing the potential end of an era as they will have significant cap challenges this summer. There will likely be one or more cost cutting trades as a result. So as dominant as Chicago has been, this year and therefore this game is of particular importance.

Patrick Sharp posted two assists in Game 5, but Chicago lost to Anaheim by a score of 5-4 in overtime.

He also had a game-high six shots on goal even tough his ice time dropped to 14:44. Sharp has averaged 16:34 of playing time in the playoffs and he has 12 points in 15 games.

Patrick Sharp will likely be a key player in the Western Conference finals.

The Blackhawks and Ducks have strong home records and both Chicago coach Joel Quenneville and Duck bench boss Bruce Boudreau like to line match. Although the Ducks can play Ryan Kesler's unit opposite Jonathan Toews' line and Ryan Getzlaf's unit opposite Patrick Kane's line, they don't have the depth to match up against Sharp's third unit. That will give Sharp and linemates Antoine Vermette and Teuvo Teravainen a distinct scoring advantage. Keep an eye on the Hawks third unit in this series. It may be the difference.
May 16 - 12:33 PM

The Chicago Blackhawks are trying to stay sharp during their lengthy gap between series.

Chicago completed its sweep of Minnesota on May 7 and won't resume its quest for the Stanley Cup until Sunday. In the meantime the Blackhawks have been occupying themselves with practices. "You want to have a good mix of competitive drills but you also want to be safe out there and make sure you're not injuring your teammates or yourself," Patrick Sharp said. "This time of year we're all professionals, we know what it takes to get ourselves ready to play. Our coach has done a good job of preparing us but at the same time we're pros and hopefully we'll be ready to go." Rust might be a bit of a factor in Game 1, but it probably won't be that big of a disadvantage for Chicago. Anaheim won its series on May 10, so it's in largely the same boat.
