Brandon Saad and Jonathan Toews each had a goal and an assist Sunday.

Saad is not having the year the Blackhawks thought he would have after re-acquiring him from Columbus in the off-season. He has 12 goals and 19 points in 38 games and has been a disaster on the power play with only one power play point (a goal) in 118:58. That is bad.
Jan 1 - 7:32 AM

Brandon Saad notched a goal and an assist in Tuesday's 3-2 OT win against Florida.

Saad opened the scoring with his 11th marker of the season and he had a helper on a goal by Jonathan Toews. The trio of Sadd, Toews and Alex DeBricat combined for six points in the contest.

Brandon Saad skated on a line with Patrick Kane and Artem Anisimov at Tuesday's practice.

Saad and Jonathan Toews have combined for only five 5-on-5 goals over their last 24 games. Toews was flanked by Ryan Hartman and John Hayden during Tuesday's session. It will be interesting to see if these new combinations remain intact for Wednesday's matchup against Washington.

Brandon Saad scored the game-tying goal with less than a minute remaining in regulation in Chicago's 3-2 shootout loss to Dallas.

Connor Murphy threw the puck on net and it took a deflection in off Saad before finding its way to the back of the net. Saad has picked up four points in his last four games, bringing his total to 10 goals and 14 points in 26 games this season. More was expected from the 25-year-old when he returned to the Blackhawks.

Brandon Saad took an amazing seven shots on goal in the first period of Saturday night's 4-1 win over the Panthers.

Yes, you read that right. Some whole teams often don't take seven shots in a period. The Hawks first line, comprised of Jonathan Toews, Saad and Richard Panik, was dominant against Florida as it directed 19 shots on net with zero against in its first six shifts. Toews registered a goal and two assists, while Saad had a goal and a marker. If this unit gets cooking, Chicago will be dangerous as Patrick Kane has also started to heat up with four goals in his last five games.

Brandon Saad scored the overtime winner in Chicago's 4-3 victory against Carolina on Saturday.

Saad was denied on a penalty shot earlier in the game so his goal was a bit of redemption. It also marked the end of a long drought as he hadn't found the back of the net since Oct. 14. He has seven goals and 10 points in 17 contests.

Brandon Saad is currently riding a 10-game goalless drought.

Goals have been hard to come by in Chicago lately, as the entire team has scored just 12 times in their last seven games. Saad had six goals in his first six contests of the season, but he's gone ice cold lately. Expect him to break out of this funk soon. "A few games there I went without chances, it was definitely frustrating," Saad said. "But lately I’ve had some more chances, more looks. I think that helps with getting your swagger back and your confidence back. (Thursday) I had some looks, too. They’re going to go in. You’ve just got to stick with it."

Brandon Saad replaced Patrick Sharp on the top line, with Jonathan Toews and Patrick Kane, after 20 minutes on Thursday night.

Saad concluded the contest with a game-high 13 shot attempts, including eight on target, but he didn't post a point in a 3-1 loss to Philadelphia. He has posted one assist and no goals in his last 10 outings.

Brandon Saad skated alongside Patrick Kane at Tuesday's practice.

Coach Joel Quenneville has been changing up his combinations frequently lately and he chastised his players during the session. Chicago has lost five of six games and they will look to bounce back on Wednesday versus Philadelphia.

Brandon Saad scores his sixth goal of the season 3:05 into overtime as the Chicago Blackhawks defeated the Nashville Predators 2-1.

It was a little bit of revenge for the Blackhawks, who were swept by the Predators in last year's Stanley Cup Playoffs. Patrick Sharp tied the game up with less than six minutes to play to send it to overtime. Saad continues to make the most of his return to Chicago, with six goals and eight points in six games. He is on the right track for a solid fantasy year.

Brandon Saad potted his fifth goal of the year in Tuesday's 3-1 win over Montreal.

Saad was credited with his third game-winning goal and his seventh point in four games. It's been a productive return to Chicago for the 24-year-old so far and this is shaping up to be a breakout performance.
Wed, Oct 11, 2017 09:09:00 AM

Brandon Saad scored a goal and registered an assist in the Blackhawks' 5-1 win against Columbus on Saturday.

Saad now has four goals and five points in just two games this season. "His quickness is the thing that's been very noticeable," Blackhawks coach Joel Quenneville said of Saad. "Quick to pucks, quick to beating the guy to the net. That line was excellent again tonight." Saad obviously can't keep up this pace, but he should be a significant part of the Blackhawks' offense this season. Expecting him to get 50-60 points would be reasonable.
Sun, Oct 8, 2017 05:48:00 AM

Brandon Saad tallied a hat trick in Chicago's 10-1 annihilation of Pittsburgh on Thursday night.

It was a big opening night for several Blackhawks and Saad's first regular-season game back with the team since April 2016 couldn't have gone much better. He was credited with the game winner and posted five shots in the contest.
Fri, Oct 6, 2017 09:49:00 AM

Brandon Saad scored a goal in Chicago's 4-2 loss to the Boston Bruins on Monday night.

Saad has been solid for the Blackhawks this preseason, as he scored a hat trick during an exhibition game against the Red Wings last week. Saad is back with the Hawks after they acquired him from the Columbus Blue Jackets. The 24-year-old had 24 goals and 53 points in 82 games with Columbus last season. Don't be surprised if he surpasses those totals now that he's back in Chicago.
