Blackhawks coach Joel Quenneville suggested that part of the reason Kris Versteeg played on Thursday was so that he could get some fresh legs in there.
That makes sense given Chicago's triple-overtime game on Tuesday. Versteeg ended up logging 13:31 minutes in Chicago's 2-1 loss to Anaheim. "The first two shifts it was like I was standing in the speedway," said Versteeg after the contest. "It was going pretty quick. Once the game progressed, I thought I settled in nicely. Obviously would have liked to tuck one away for the guys to help them out. All in all, I felt pretty good tonight." May 22 - 10:33 AM

Kris Versteeg will play in Game 3 of the Western Conference Final against Anaheim.

The 29-year-old hasn't played a playoff game since the first round against Nashville. The Hawks are making some interesting changes ahead of Game 3, as both Antoine Vermette and Teuvo Teravainen will be healthy scratches. Versteeg has one goal in six postseason games in 2015.
May 21 - 8:06 PM

Kris Versteeg has been told by coach Joel Quenneville that he will get into the lineup at some point against Anaheim.

Versteeg skated in all six games against Nashville during the opening round of the playoffs, but he hasn't played since. Some of that was because of a lower-body issue, but he has also been made a healthy scratch.
May 21 - 12:17 PM

Kris Vertsteeg, Daniel Carcillo, Kyle Cumiskey, Joakim Nordstrom and Antti Raanta will be healthy scratches in Game One of the Western Conference Final on Sunday.

Versteeg is the most notable name on the list, but it isn't a surprise to anyone that he is a healthy scratch for this game. This should be a long and entertaining series between two elite teams.
May 17 - 3:15 PM

It is likely that Kris Versteeg will continue to be a healthy scratch.

He will almost certainly sit in the press box for Sunday's Game One of the Western Conference finals as he has been practicing on the Hawks' fifth line all week.
May 16 - 12:36 PM

Kris Versteeg skated on Chicago's fifth line at Wednesday's practice.

That means he could be scratched when the Blackhawks open the Western Conference Finals against Anaheim. Versteeg had been dealing with a lower-body injury, but it's believed that he is healthy enough to play.
May 13 - 12:35 PM

Kris Versteeg is ready to play after recovering from his lower-body injury.

However, it doesn't appear as he will suit up in Game 4 on Thursday night. When coach Joel Quenneville was asked if Versteeg will play at some point he said, "We'll see. We like options."
May 6 - 2:04 PM

There will not be any lineup changes for Chicago for Game Three on Tuesday night against Minnesota.

Kris Versteeg is still day-to-day with a lower body injury, which leaves him to join Joakim Nordstrom, Daniel Carcillo, David Rundblad, Kyle Cumiskey, Michael Paliotta and Antti Raanta in the press box.

Kris Versteeg (lower body) isn't participating in Chicago's morning skate on Sunday.

The Hawks forward said he felt better and hoped to skate today, but that doesn't look like it's going to happen. Versteeg missed game one because of the injury, and it looks like it will cost him a second game in the series.
May 3 - 11:32 AM

Chicago Blackhawks winger Kris Versteeg is "feeling better" and hopes to at least skate on Sunday.

That doesn't mean Versteeg will be able to get back in on the action, but it would at least be a step in the right direction.
May 2 - 2:25 PM

Kris Versteeg will indeed sit out Game One against the Minnesota Wild due to a lower body injury.

However fantasy owners shouldn't fret. Versteeg had just one point during the six-game first round series with Nashville. And he's posted just 15 points over his last 39 playoff games.
May 1 - 9:20 PM

Kris Versteeg missed Thursday's practice because of a lower-body injury.

He is listed as day-to-day. It was suspected that Versteeg would be scratched when the second round begins Friday against Minnesota anyway because he skated on the fifth line at Monday's practice.
Apr 30 - 1:33 PM

Kris Versteeg may be a healthy scratch when the second round begins.

He skated on the fifth line with Joakim Nordstrom and Daniel Carcillo during Monday's practice. Bryan Bickell took Versteeg's spot on the second line and Teuvo Teravainen moved into the fold on the third unit. Versteeg had one goal and 15 shots in six games versus Nashville in the first round of the postseason.
Apr 27 - 4:15 PM

Kris Versteeg will now play on Chicago's second line.

He skated alongside Brad Richards and Patrick Kane during scrimmages Saturday morning while Patrick Sharp flanked Antoine Vermette on the third unit along with Bryan Bickell, who had previously skated on the Hawks' second unit. Chicago's first line features Jonathan Toews between Marian Hossa and Bradon Saad. Adjust your roster accordingly.
Apr 25 - 12:18 PM

Kris Versteeg was the beneficiary of Patrick Kane's spin-o-rama pass to make it 4-2 Nashville late in the third period on Thursday night.

However it wasn't enough as the Predators would take Game Five 5-2. Regardless, it was a gorgeous individual effort by Kane and you really should find a highlight. The goal was Versteeg's first point of the postseason, and the 16th goal and 41st point of his playoff career over 77 games.
