Kris Versteeg scored with just 1:23 remaining in regulation to get Chicago a point in the standings against Detroit on Wednesday.

Detroit went on to win in a shootout. He has two goals in his last three games. Versteeg was rusty in his first outing back following a hand injury, but he's settled back in again since then. He has 29 points in 38 games and he's back on the Blackhawks' second line.

Kris Versteeg (hand) will not be reunited with Patrick Kane in his return to the Blackhawks' lineup.

Instead Versteeg will play on the third line with Bryan Bickell and Andrew Shaw. You should temper your expectations for Versteeg accordingly, but this might only be a short-term arrangement. Once Versteeg shakes off the rust that comes with missing roughly a month and a half of playing time, he might find himself back on the Kane line. For now, Versteeg's return means Teuvo Teravainen will go from playing on the third line to being removed from the lineup entirely.

Kris Versteeg will return from a hand injury on Wednesday night.

He has nine goals and 27 points in 34 games this season. If he gets back on a line with Patrick Kane then he's worth getting back into the lineup, but if he slides down the lineup and stays out of the top-six group then his fantasy value takes a serious hit.

Kris Versteeg (hand) may be ready for Wednesday.

He has been out for more than a month with a hand injury. If he's not ready to go on Wednesday then Friday's game against New Jersey is a very good possibility.
Feb 9 - 6:42 PM

Kris Versteeg (hand) is likely to return next Wednesday or Friday.

He has sat out 13 games with a hand injury and Friday's match against Winnipeg will be his 14th on the sidelines. Versteeg returned to practice on Thursday.
Feb 6 - 1:36 PM

Kris Versteeg (hand) practiced with his teammates on Thursday.

It was his first session since he blocked a shot with his left hand during the Winter Classic on Jan. 1. Versteeg is slated to return to the lineup next week when the Blackhawks open an eight-game homestand.
Feb 6 - 12:38 PM

While the Blackhawks are on the road, Kris Versteeg has been skating in Chicago.

Versteeg hasn't played since Jan. 1. The hope is that he'll be ready shortly after the Blackhawks return from their current road trip. Chicago will play in three more away games before returning on Monday.
Feb 3 - 4:04 PM

The Chicago Blackhawks have placed Kris Versteeg on injured reserve.

Versteeg has been out with a hand injury since January 1st. The Hawks' forward was originally supposed to miss four weeks, but Chicago head coach Joel Quenneville hinted that Versteeg could be out longer.
Jan 25 - 7:04 PM

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.
Jan 22 - 1:51 PM

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.
Jan 3 - 3:04 PM

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.
Jan 1 - 5:05 PM

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.
