Marko Dano is okay with Chicago's decision to send him to the minors.
"I didn’t get too much ice time so I was talking to Coach and Stan about that and I think it’s a good move," Dano said. "I’m going to get a lot of ice-time opportunities on the power play and penalty kill here. I can get better in what I was doing there. If I would be sitting in the stands it wouldn’t help me at all. I’m glad I can be here and can play some hockey again." Dano had played in just 13 games with the Blackhawks and was only averaging 9:41 minutes per contest when he did dress. He has the potential to develop into a solid top-six forward. It makes sense for Chicago to be patient with him by giving him a chance to develop in the minors and it's good that Dano seems to have a positive attitude about it. Thu, Dec 24, 2015 04:13:00 PM

The Blackhawks sent Marko Dano to the minors this week for more playing time.

With the Hawks (when he dressed) Dano was averaging 9:41 minutes of playing time per game. That is far too low for a developing player. "We want him playing," Hawks' coach Joel Quenneville said. "He wasn’t playing enough minutes. He wasn’t playing enough games. We feel that’s got to be part of his improvement — getting neater with the puck and more consistent." Dano has too much talent and the Hawks have too much invested in him for him not to be back in Chicago at some point this season. Hold him on your bench for now if you are in a deep or legacy pool.

Marko Dano has been sent to the minors by the Chicago Blackhawks.

Dano has a goal and an assist in 13 games with the Blackhawks in 2015-16. He also has eight points in nine AHL contests.

Marko Dano and Brandon Mashinter will probably watch Thursday's game against Nashville from the press box.

Neither player skated on a line during the morning skate which would indicate that they won't suit up. Information like this could change throughout the day, so we'll let you know if either player suits up.

Marko Dano and Brandon Mashinter will be scratched from Tuesday's match with Nashville.

Unfortunately, neither Dano nor Mashinter boast much fantasy value. Dano has but two points and 15 shots in 13 games, while Mashinter has less than that through 11 games.
Tue, Dec 8, 2015 08:00:00 PM

Marko Dano, David Rundblad, and Brandon Mashinter will each be scratched for Sunday's match with Winnipeg.

Unfortunately there isn't much present fantasy value between Rundblad and Mashinter. But what's more troubling, at least for the moment, is that phenom Dano is still struggling with Chicago at the NHL level. He has two points and 15 shots in 13 games this season so far, so until he gets hot you may want to leave him on the waiver wire.

Marko Dano is slated to play Tuesday night against Minnesota.

He was scratched Saturday in Los Angeles, but skated with Marcus Kruger and Marian Hossa during Tuesday's morning session.
Tue, Dec 1, 2015 04:25:00 PM

Marko Dano, Viktor Tikhonov, and David Rundblad will be scratched for Friday's match with the Kings.

Of the three, only Dano has any expectation of contributing to your fantasy squad. Unfortunately, he has just two points and little else through 11 games thus far. The 21-year-old has a world of talent, but we might back off until he finds some chemistry in Chicago.

Marko Dano will be back in the Blackhawks lineup on Saturday night against the Canucks.

Dano has but two points, nine shots, and 13 hits to show for his efforts through eight games this season. Not the kind of production expected out of the young phenom, but you should probably stick with him so long as he's in Chicago's top-six.

Marko Dano will be scratched from Friday's match with the Flames.

Through eight games with the Blackhawks so far Dano has a pair of points, nine shots, and 13 hits. Not exactly the production one was hoping for from the young phenom.

Marko Dano is still adjusting to the Blackhawks.

He was benched for about 15 minutes of play from the second and third periods against Edmonton on Wednesday. Dano has been out of sync while playing alongside Jonathan Toews and Marian Hossa and it's unclear if he'll play on that line Friday night. "I haven't played as well as I'd like to," Dano said. "Now if I get the chance again, I've got to just find a way to be better." He has one goal and an assist in his first eight games with Chicago.

Mark Dano will line up on Chicago's top line Saturday night against St. Louis.

Finally! This is where Dano belongs--alongside Jonathan Toews and Marian Hossa. It was what the Hawks envisaged when they made the Brandon Saad trade with Columbus. Now is the time to pick up Dano. Don't wait a second as he will be scooped up fast. We wouldn't be surprised if Dano flourishes immediately on the Hawks' top unit.

Marko Dano said he learned some valuable lessons from his recent stint in the minors.

"Just be strong on the puck, move my feet and those chances will come if I do the hard work. That’s the key: if you’re going hard to the net those rebounds are going to be there. I have to be in the right spot at the right moment," Dano said. "Just keep working hard and maybe at some point they’ll come toward me." The 20-year-old has one goal in three games since being called up by the 'Hawks.

Marko Dano was on the third line at Monday's practice.

He skated with Tanner Kero and Ryan Hartman after getting called up from the minors. Dano has plenty of potential and is still viewed as a good fit to play alongside Jonathan Toews and Marian Hossa. If that happens then he will be worth using in fantasy hockey, but right now it appears to be a wait-and-see approach.

Marko Dano has been summoned from the minors by Chicago.

It was surprising when he was sent down before the start of the season, but the Blackhawks have done some roster shuffling following Marian Hossa's lower-body injury. Bryan Bickell has been assigned to AHL Rockford to make room for Dano.
