Anisimov has now scored in back-to-back games and in three of his last four. He's up to 17 goals and 24 points in 52 games this season. Don't expect him to carry much value in standard fantasy leagues. Nick Schmaltz and Jan Rutta also scored for the Blackhawks on Friday night.

Artem Anisimov netted his 16th goal of the season in Wednesday's 3-2 shootout win over Ottawa.

Anisimov has found the back of the net in two of the last three games, but he has produced a mere 23 points in 51 total appearances this season. He isn't worthy of your consideration for a possible pickup until he shows more consistency.
Feb 22 - 11:02 AM

Artem Anisimov has been promoted to the Blackhawks second line with Patrick Kane and Nick Schmaltz.

Anisimov is taking Brandon Saad, who's struggled for most of the season, on that line. "He’s got the willingness, but he’s got the art, as well," head coach Joel Quenneville said. "He’s got a quick stick. His positioning is good, whether he’s tipping pucks or finding them. He’s got a real good knack about it. He’s got a quality opportunity not just playing with Kaner, but you get on the power play. There’s good ice time when you fill that niche." Anisimov has 13 goals and 19 points in 41 games this season. This "promotion" should give him a short-term fantasy boost.

Ansismov has been hot this month with seven goals and one assist in eight November contests. "My start of the season was not great," he said. "But I keep working hard and be focused and say, 'OK, November. I'm going to step up in November and forward.'" It has certainly helped that he's been back playing alongside Patrick Kane of late.
