After a tumultuous off-season, Chicago Blackhawks GM Stan Bowman is exalting the virtues of change.
Bowman told " I think we're really going to fall in love with some of these guys." Few, if any, teams have seen the sort of dramatic changes the defending champions experienced this summer, so they'll need to see the likes of Marko Dano contribute in 2015-16. Aug 30 - 2:19 PM

Marko Dano could be a useful later-round gamble in fantasy leagues this coming season.

Dano was acquired by the Blackhawks as part of the trade that sent Brandon Saad to the Blue Jackets on June 30. Dano tallied 21 points in 35 NHL games last year. The 20-year-old was the 27th-overall pick by the Blue Jackets in 2013. "I'm a two-way player with good hockey sense," Dano said. "I can protect the puck in the corners and make those little plays in there. Every player is different, but I like to play a hard game and Marian Hossa plays kind of the [same] style of game as me, but he's a different level. I'm trying to catch him with that." Dano figures to be a great player to own in dynasty leagues, too.

Marko Dano is a member of the Chicago Blackhawks following a seven-player swap with Columbus.

The deal helped the Blue Jackets land Brandon Saad. Dano had eight goals and 21 points in 35 games during his first taste of NHL action. He'll get to develop with the Hawks now and if he can land a top-six role then he will be an interesting player to watch.

Marko Dano suffered a partially torn MCL in his right knee at the World Hockey Championships.

Dano will obviously miss the rest of the tournament, but he said that the injury will not require surgery. He should be back to full health in four to five weeks and shouldn't be in danger of missing the start of training camp in September.
May 10 - 11:10 AM

Marko Dano found the back of the net in Columbus' 4-3 overtime loss to the New York Rangers.

Dano has scored eight goals this season and remarkably three of them have come against the Rangers. The 20-year-old forward has 19 points in 32 games and another 18 points in 37 AHL contests in 2014-15.
Apr 7 - 9:21 AM

Marko Dano will be a healthy scratch in Thursday's game against the New York Islanders.

Justin Falk and Corey Tropp are also expected to watch Thursday's game from the press box. Dano, 20, was Columbus' first round pick in 2013. He has seven goals and 16 points in 30 games this season. He does have some good long-term upside and he is worth owning in dynasty leagues. "You can learn a lot by watching," Richards said. "It’s a chance for him to sit and watch. He worked hard today, we’ll have a practice tomorrow and he’ll work tomorrow, and we’ll see about Saturday. To me, it’s part of the process."
Apr 2 - 6:54 PM

Marko Dano recorded his now fourth career multi-point game, and his first career three-point game during Thursday's 6-2 win over the Canucks.

The 20 year old rookie has been hot of late, scoring four goals and seven points over his last 10 games. All in the month of March. Dano's work came from the dots-downward as he slammed home two pucks from atop the crease, and set up Scott Hartnell for a tap-in of his own. Dano now has seven goals and 14 points through his first 25 games of his career.
Mar 20 - 2:16 AM

Marko Dano is on a three-game point streak.

Dano had an assist in a 3-2 loss to Carolina on Sunday. He has five goals and 11 points in 23 contests in 2014-15.
Mar 16 - 9:26 AM

Marko Dano scored a goal and an assist in Friday's 5-4 shootout win over Edmonton.

Dano opened the scoring just 43 seconds into the game. He registered an assist on Scott Hartnell's game-tying goal with under five minutes remaining in the contest. Dano hasn't been a big point producer in his first NHL season, but he has registered two multi-point games in under a month. The 20-year-old has five goals and 10 points in 22 games this season. You should consider adding Dano in keeper or dynasty leagues.
Mar 14 - 12:15 AM

Marko Dano scored a goal and an assist in Sunday's 4-3 shootout loss to the New York Rangers.

Dano got the Jackets on the board when they were trailing 3-0 in the second period and he picked up an assist on Artem Anisimov's goal that cut the deficit to 3-2. The Blue Jackets eventually forced overtime but they couldn't get the job done in the shootout. Dano, 20, was Columbus' first round pick (27th overall) in 2013. He has two goals and five points in 12 games.
Feb 22 - 10:23 PM

Marko Dano has been called up by the Columbus Blue Jackets.

Dano has a goal and an assist in eight games with Columbus in 2014-15. He isn't expected to have much fantasy value in standard leagues for the rest of the season.
Feb 17 - 10:46 AM

The Columbus Blue Jackets have sent Marko Dano to the minors.

Dano had played in eight games for the Blue Jackets this season with a goal and an assist, both coming on October 11. He suffered an undisclosed injury the following week and needs to play at this juncture of his career. The 19-year-old will go to Springfield of the AHL. "I need more ice time," Dano said. "It’s a good move. I really appreciated being here. Now, I have to keep working."

Marko Dano (undisclosed) returned to action on Sunday October 26.

It was Dano's first game since Oct. 14. He had six hits in 15:26 minutes of ice time.

Marko Dano skated hard on Saturday.

Dano is 'banged up' according to himself and has missed the last two games. "I’m getting better," Dano said. "I skated, and I feel good. That was pretty tough after two days off. It was intense." Consider the rookie day-to-day. He was selected in the first round of the 2013 draft and is only 19. The offensively gifted forward could be a nice sleeper candidate but he still deserves to be on the waiver wire at this time.

Marko Dano is not in Columbus' lineup on Friday night.

The Blue Jackets are taking on the Flames, and it's believed that Dano is dealing with an undisclosed injury. He should be considered day-to-day.
