Ryan Garbutt (illness) returned to action on Saturday.

Garbutt played 9:01 and had a shot on goal. It has not been a good fantasy season for Garbutt, his first with the Blackhawks after coming over in an off-season deal from Dallas. He has two assists in 14 games with a minus-five rating. The chippy player does have 15 penalty minutes so there is some hope in fantasy pools.

Ryan Garbutt wasn't part of the four lines during Sunady's morning skate, which means he's unlikely to play against the Oilers.

Garbutt has but two points this season, but he also has 15 PIMs and 40 hits through 13 games. If you're in a league that rewards hitters, keep him in mind for your next one-day fill-in necessity.

It's Ryan Garbutt's lucky night as he'll skate with Patrick Kane and Jonathan Toews against the Devils on Friday night.

Through a dozen games thus far Garbutt has two assists, 13 PIMs, and an astonishing 40 hits while skating an average of 12 minutes per. He has 72 points in 210 career games, so his point total may tick upwards but Garbutt is a hitting machine. Consider his time with the big boys that extra scoop of ice cream on top.

Ryan Garbutt is skating on Chicago's top line alongside Jonathan Toews and Marian Hossa.

Coach Joel Quenneville has already tried Marko Dano, Andrew Shaw and Teuvo Teravainen with Toews and Hossa. Garbutt probably won't last on the combination either, but for now the Blackhawks coach likes Garbutt's "speed, directness."

Stan Bowman believes that acquiring Trevor Daley and Ryan Garbutt helps his team right away.

The Hawks sent Patrick Sharp to Dallas, but Bowman still feels that his team will be fine going forward. "Sometimes when you make trades of players who make a lot of money, you’re trying to get picks or prospects back. The key is to make our team better," Bowman said. "Obviously we’re trading away a good player. But this wasn’t trying to just get things that would help us down the road. We like our team as it is. We think we have a strong group of guys coming back that led us to the Cup a month ago. That was really the thing we talked about when in discussions with Dallas, trying to get something that could help us now."

The Chicago Blackhawks have acquired Ryan Garbutt in the Patrick Sharp trade with Dallas.

Garbutt comes with a $1.8 million annual cap hit through 2016-17 and Dallas is reportedly retaining half of that, so he's an inexpensive option for a Blackhawks' squad that's constantly struggling to stay under the ceiling. Garbutt won't come close to replacing the offense lost by trading away Sharp, but he does play with a physical edge and could be a valuable addition to their third line.
Jul 10 - 9:29 PM

Mar 23 - 6:07 PM

Ryan Garbutt will likely be a healthy scratch Saturday night against Chicago.
