Andrew Desjardins now has four goals this season.
Desjardins doesn't hit the score board much, this being just the fourth time all season. That's right, he has no assists either. Unfortunately given that he doesn't hit or take as many penalties as he did with San Jose, he doesn't have much fantasy value. Thu, Dec 31, 2015 11:10:00 PM

Andrew Desjardins has inked a two-year, $1.6 million contract with the Chicago Blackhawks.

Desjardins had 10 points and 57 penalty minutes in 69 games with San Jose and Chicago in 2014-15. That's pretty good value for Desjardins and a sign that he was willing to take less money in order to stick with the Blackhawks despite their cap situation.

The Chicago Blackhawks are interested in re-signing Andrew Desjardins.

The Blackhawks acquired Desjardins from the Sharks in March in exchange for Ben Smith and a conditional seventh round selection. He's eligible to become an unrestricted free agent and Chicago has some cap issues this summer, so re-signing him might be a bit tricky. That being said, the bottom-six forward likely won't be too expensive.

Andrew Desjardins is celebrating his first Stanley Cup championship.

Chicago picked up Desjardins from San Jose in March in exchange for Ben Smith and a conditional seventh round pick. Desjardins went on to score a goal and four points in 21 playoff contests. He also averaged 13:55 minutes per game. "The amount of work that’s put in to getting to this is just hard to imagine," said Desjardins. "When you've never done it, you don't even understand how much work it is to get here. It feels amazing right now." He's eligible to become an unrestricted free agent this summer and he might end up walking given Chicago's difficult cap situation.

Andrew Desjardins, Michael Paliotta, and Antti Raanta are each expected to sit out Friday's Game Two against the Nashville Predators.

Coach Quenneville has already noted that there won't be any lineup changes from Game One, which includes benching trade deadline acquisition Antoine Vermette. But should Desjardins find his way into the lineup, he could provide quality tough guy stats even as a spot-start.

Andrew Desjardins will be listed as a healthy scratch for Game 1 against the Predators Wednesday night.

Desjardins was unable to generate any offense since being acquired by the Blackhawks at this year’s trade deadline as he tallied just two assists in 13 games.
