Artem Anisimov has potted five goals in his last three games.
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.

Artem Anisimov scored the game-winning goal in Chicago's 2-0 win over Minnesota on Saturday.

Anisimov scored the first goal of the game at the 14:18 mark of the third period while the 'Hawks were on the power play. Teammates Alex DeBrincat made it 2-0 late in the game with an empty-netter.

Nov 5 - 12:28 AM

Artem Anisimov had to re-learn the center position after head coach Joel Quenneville shook up the lines and took Patrick Kane off his wing.

Kane was usually the one dominating the puck and leading the rush, a task usually assigned to the center ice position. Anisimov let Kane do his thing and focused mostly on banging in rebounds and being defensively responsible. "I feel much better because I have the puck more, and I make more plays and feel confident," Anisimov said. "I carry the puck more through the neutral zone [now] and just try to make plays and be responsible in all zones." Understandably, Anisimov's point total has dropped since Kane was removed from his wing, but the talented Russian center has still managed to pick up six points in 13 games this season playing alongside Patrick Sharp and John Hayden. Anisimov would only warrant fantasy consideration if he is placed on a line with Kane again.

He also picked up an assist on Alex DeBrincat's empty-netter in the final two minutes of regulation. Anisimov finished the game with a plus-1 rating and five shots on goal in 16:48 of ice time. The Blackhawks forward has four goals and two assists in 13 games this season.
