Kris Versteeg netted his 100th career goal in Saturday's 5-1 win over Pittsburgh at Soldier Field.
Versteeg went on an 11-game goal scoring drought between his 99th and 100th markers. "That was something maybe I've been pressing for a little while now, people asking you about it all the time and family members. It was really nice to get it here," Versteeg said. "You try to take positives every game and that's one you can take and hopefully build confidence for myself." Versteeg also scored during the Blackhawks' outdoor game in 2009. Mar 2 - 9:22 AM

It looks as if Kris Versteeg will play against Boston Sunday afternoon.

He collided with teammate Bryan Bickell in Friday's game and missed the thrid period but skated Saturday and appears good to go against the Bruins. Keep Versteeg active if you need him.

Kris Versteeg left Friday night's game against Anaheim in the third period with an upper-body injury.

He seemed to injure his right arm when he collided with teammate Bryan Bickell behind the Mighty Duck net as the second period ended. Versteeg will be re-evaluated Saturday and his status for Sunday's game against Boston is unclear. Consider him day-to-day for now.

Kris Versteeg hasn't scored a goal in eight straight games.

Kris Versteeg had a goal and an assist Friday night, but it was not enough to lift the Hawks over the Ducks.

Versteeg now has 14 points on the year, seven with Chicago and seven from when he was a Panther. The speedy winger though has played just 12 games with the Hawks, whereas it took him 18 games to reach seven points with Florida.

Kris Versteeg notched a goal and an assist in Sunday's 5-1 victory over San Jose.

Versteeg was playing in his first game back at the United Center since being reacquired by Chicago from the Florida Panthers. "It was emotional, obviously, coming back," he said. "Tonight was special. Best fans in the world here. It was exciting." Brandon Pirri, who also had a goal and a helper in the contest, was in on both of Versteeg's points.

Kris Versteeg registered an assist in his return to the Chicago Blackhawks on Saturday.

The Florida Panthers dealt Versteeg to Chicago, but his reunion was overshadowed by the Blackhawks' brutal 7-2 loss to the Nashville Predators. Versteeg's fantasy value is likely to be limited in Chicago as he's projected to spend a lot of time on the team's third line.

Kris Versteeg played mostly alongside Andrew Shaw and Bryan Bickell on the third line on Saturday night while picking up an assist in his effort.

Versteeg went from a "top dog" situation in Florida to more of a role playing situation in Chicago. He spent the majority of his ice-time alongside Bickell and Shaw (66.1 percent of his shifts), but also saw a couple of shifts alongside Patrick Sharp and Jonathan Toews (11.7 percent of his time on ice). He did garner some second unit power-play time (2:38) alongside Brandon Pirri and Brandon Saad, so that's a little bit of a positive, but it probably won't be enough to ensure that he's entirely fantasy relevant anymore.

Newly-acquired Kris Versteeg will play on Chicago's third line alongside Andrew Shaw and Bryan Bickell.

That should be a fun line to watch. All three players, at their best, are physical and have offensive ability. That said, Versteeg will have limited upside as he will likely not receive meaningful power-play time on a stacked Hawks' squad.

Kris Versteeg is thrilled to be back with the Chicago Blackhawks.

"I'm really excited about it," Versteeg said. "I'm still young. I've got hopefully a lot of years ahead of me and hopefully (they're) as a Blackhawk, because it’s where my heart is." Versteeg played for Toronto, Philadelphia, and Florida between stints with Chicago. He won the Stanley Cup with the Blackhawks in 2010, but the team needed to free up cap space at the time, so trading him made sense.

Kris Versteeg will play on the Chicago Blackhawks' third line in his first game back on Saturday.

Chicago reacquired Versteeg from Florida on Thursday. He has some fantasy value if he can consistently get top-six minutes, but we wouldn't count on that with the Blackhawks.

The Chicago Blackhawks have re-acquired Kris Versteeg from the Florida Panthers in exchange for Jimmy Hayes and Dylan Olsen.

Versteeg was a valuable member of the Blackhawks during their Cup winning run in 2010 but was dealt to Toronto during that off-season as Chicago faced severe cap issues for the next season. He was then dealt to Philadelphia from Toronto and made his way to Florida as the Flyers dealt him for a draft pick in the 2011 off-season. "We're really excited," Blackhawks general manager Stan Bowman said. "Looking at our team this year, we're off to a really good start. I think we've come out of the gates the way we wanted to, [but] we're always trying to improve. I think just the experience and versatility he brings to the table [are key], on top of the fact that he's a player our coaches know well and our players are familiar with. He has a lot of energy and competitiveness and he's got great skill level to complement our players, so we think it's a great fit." Look for Versteeg to see third line duty the rest of the way in Chicago.
