Kris Versteeg (hand) could be sidelined for more time than the Blackhawks originally thought.

He has been out of action since Jan. 1 and was expected to miss four weeks, but coach Joel Quenneville said Wednesday that, "It's probably going to be a little bit more than that." Versteeg has nine goals and 27 points in 34 games this year. He was a great fit alongside Patrick Kane and Brad Richards, but fantasy owners will have to wait a little longer to get him back in the lineup.

The Chicago Blackhawks will be without forward Kris Versteeg for about one month.

On the bright side, it doesn't sound like Versteeg will need surgery on his injured hand. This is a really tough setback for the 28-year-old, as Versteeg almost had more points (27) in 34 games with Chicago in 2014-15 than he did with the Blackhawks (29) in the 63 games he played with them following a trade from Florida in 2013-14.

Don't be surprised if Kris Versteeg is out for a few weeks at least.

He sustained a hand injury in Thursday's Winter Classic and will need at least a few weeks to recover. Highly-regarded youngsterTeuvo Teravianen will get a chance to replace Versteeg in the lineup. Versteeg is hoping this isn't a Wally Pip/Lou Gehrig situation.

Kris Versteeg exited Thursday's game with a hand injury.

He blocked a shot by Washington's Eric Fehr and didn't return. Coach Joel Quenneville said Versteeg could out for a while and more information should be known on Friday.

Kris Versteeg registered a goal and two assists in Wednesday's 4-1 win over St. Louis.

He earned the primary assist on both of Patrick Kane's markers in the contest. Versteeg has been scorching hot since being placed on the same line as Kane and Brad Richards. He has racked up four goals and 10 assists in eight matches.

Kris Versteeg continues to play well on the Blackhawks' second line alongside Patrick Kane and Brad Richards.

He has scored three goals and registered seven points in the Hawks' last five games. The team's first unit is comprised of Jonathan Toews, Marian Hossa and Brandon Saad. Despite his recent production, Versteeg or Saad are likely to be demoted to the third line once Patrick Sharp returns to action. As Sharp is getting close, the Hawks will be forced to shuffle their lines as early as late next week.

Kris Versteeg scored Chicago's only goal in their 4-1 loss to Vancouver on Sunday night.

Versteeg tied the game at one in the second period before the Canucks exploded offensively in the third period. The 28-year-old has collected a point in each of his last four games. He has seven goals and 14 points in 17 games this season. Duncan Keith and Brent Seabrook collected the assists on Versteeg's goal.

Kris Versteeg scored a goal and two assists in Chicago's 6-2 win over Dallas.

Versteeg now has seven points in his last six games. The 28-year-old has five goals and 10 points in 14 games for the Hawks this season. He should surpass the 20-goal and 50-point mark if he stays healthy.

Kris Versteeg made a terrible pass through his own crease that directly resulted in a Detroit goal in the 4-1 loss Friday night.

The errant pass went right onto Luke Glendening's stick who stuffed it behind Corey Crawford. Hawk coach Joel Quenneville was justifiably not very forgiving about this type of mistake and benched Versteeg for the balance of the period. "There are mistakes, and there are cardinal sins," Quenneville said. "The purists of hockey wouldn't tolerate that kind of play." Ouch! We wouldn't be surprised if Versteeg sat in the press box Sunday against Dallas for his transgression.

The Blackhawks had some interesting combinations in Saturday morning's rushes.

Kris Versteeg skated with Patrick Kane and Jonathan Toews while Andrew Shaw skated with Brandon Saad and Bryan Bickell. Ben Smith, Marian Hossa and Marcus Kruger formed a unit as did Peter Regin, Brad Richards and Jerremy Morin. Hmmm! Wonder if they will stick for Sunday's game against San Jose.

Kris Versteeg had a goal and an assist in Thursday's 5-4 shootout victory against Ottawa.

He had contributed just one assist in his previous five appearances. Versteeg picked up a helper on Marian Hossa's 1,000th career point and he scored a beautiful goal in the first period.

Kris Versteeg is projected to play Tuesday against Philadelphia.

He hasn't played in any games during the 2014-15 campaign because of a lower-body injury. Versteeg skated with Andrew Shaw and Patrick Kane in Monday's line rushes.

Kris Versteeg (lower body) is reportedly ahead of schedule.

He was originally slated to return in late October, but now it appears as though he'll be ready to come back sooner. Versteeg won't play Saturday, though.
Fri, Oct 17, 2014 04:36:00 PM

Kris Versteeg (lower body) should be able to resume skating in the near future.

Versteeg's overall timetable hasn't changed, which means he probably won't be back in the Stars' lineup until late October. He had 12 goals and 36 points in 81 games last season.
