Patrick Kane thinks he and Artem Anisimov could become a good combination.
With no clear No. 2 center on the Blackhawks, Anisimov is likely to get a chance to seize the opportunity. It would obviously benefit his value tremendously, as would playing with Kane. "He’s a big, smart, two-way centerman, a left-handed shot," Kane said. "That’s kind of the ideal center for someone like myself. He’s also got the skill, too. He could be a really dangerous fit on our team. So I’m looking forward to the chance of playing with him, if that’s the case." Anisimov had seven goals and 27 points in 52 games last year.

Artem Anisimov took a maintenance day on Wednesday.

That's just an FYI as Anisimov is still expected to play on Friday. Most of the time, when a player takes a maintenance day it proves to be innocent enough, but if Anisimov isn't available to skate on Thursday either, then this will start to look more suspicious.

It was Anisimov's first game since Nov. 29 due to a torn tricep. He logged 15:30 minutes, including time in shorthanded and power-play situations. His fantasy value is limited in standard leagues as he typically averages around 0.5 points per game.

"We know what he can bring to this team," coach Todd Richards said. "He can bring some offensive skill, good penalty killer, lots of different things. Plays the game smart positionally, so he's a guy that's relied upon."
