Andrew Desjardins (undisclosed) has been placed on the injured reserve list.

Desjardins sustained the injury on Saturday when he blocked a shot. We don't know exactly how bad his condition is, but the fact that he'll start the 2016-17 campaign on the injured reserve obviously isn't encouraging.

Blackhawks head coach Joel Quenneville likes the way Andrew Desjardins has been playing in training camp.

Desjardins hasn't guaranteed himself a spot on the roster, but his coach appreciates the way he plays. "The decision is probably not clear for us right now exactly who's going to be here and who's not," Quenneville said. "But the one thing is you appreciate the way he competes. He's coming off a really good game (on Tuesday) and he gives us some versatility in all three forward positions. He can kill penalties. We like the way he competes and he's got some physicality to his game."

Andrew Desjardins will get back into the lineup for Game 4 on Tuesday night.

Andrew Desjardins will be scratched in Game 3 against the Blues on Sunday.

His last shift was during the second period of Game 2, so it's no surprise that he'll be missing Game 3. A veteran of 49 career playoff games, Desjardins has posted eight points, 47 PIMs, and 94 hit in that time.

Andrew Desjardins netted his eighth goal of season during Tuesday's 6-2 win over Arizona.

After Marian Hossa was injured in Saturday's game against Anaheim, Andrew Desjardins replaced him on the top line.

Desjardins took advantage of his opportunity, as he helped set up Brent Seabrook's third period goal. It's unclear how long Hossa will be out. Even if he's gone for a while, there's no guarantee that Desjardins will continue skating on the top line. Don't rush to add him from the waiver wire just yet.
Feb 14 - 11:21 AM

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.

Andrew Desjardins is a healthy scratch in Thursday's game against Ottawa.

Andrew Desjardins, David Rundblad, and Viktor Tikhonov will be scratched from Tuesday's match with Minnesota.

Through 21 games thus far Desjardins has a goal, four PIMs, and 23 hits on the season. Which should suggest that he's no longer the supplier of tough guy stats as he was with San Jose.

Andrew Desjardins will slot on the third line in Friday's tilt with Calgary.

If you're in a reverse league, Desjardins returning to the lineup may sound exciting but we wouldn't advise getting your hopes up. Despite his reputations has a gnarly player, he's been well behaved since joining Chicago. Through 29 games he has but nine PIMs (one fight) and 52 hits. Quite the change from his San Jose days.
