Kevyn Adams will go to camp with the Chicago Blackhawks.

Adams is coming off of major knee surgery and is going to camp without a contract. Should he make the Blackhawks it will be as a fourth line player at best, so he is not worth considering in fantasy pools.

Unrestricted free agent Kevyn Adams is still without a gig for the upcoming season.

Even with a Stanley Cup to stare at, "It has been a little unsettling," Adams said of his current unemployment. The 34 year old had major knee surgery and no goals last season. Adams is a great character guy whom the Hawks had mentoring Jonathan Toews and Patrick Kane. Unfortunately for Adams, the salary cap mentality no longer allows financial wiggle room for personality without putting up points. According to Blackhawks assitant GM Rick Dudley, coaching could be in the cards, "The truth is, if he decides he's not going to play anymore, there's a place in the game for Kevyn Adams - without any question."

Kevyn Adams would like to re-sign with the Chicago Blackhawks.

Adams is an unrestricted free agents this summer. "I know it's been a tough year for me in terms of having this big injury, but hopefully I've proved that I'm back and I've shown them that I'm committed to this team," Adams said. "It's just a matter of hoping we're on the same page when the season is over and hopefully they value what I bring to the table every day. Then I'll definitely express to them that I want to be here and that I appreciate what they've done for me." GM Dale Tallon has contacted Adams' agent about re-signing with the Blackhawks.

Kevyn Adams is expected to be in the Blackhawk lineup against the Oilers on Sunday.

He has missed most of the season while recovering from major knee surgery and has had trouble breaking into the Chicago lineup. We applaud Adams' determination to play, but can't recommend him as a fantasy start.

Kevyn Adams was a healthy scratch on Friday.

While this is not really noteworthy on a day-to-day basis, Adams is finally healthy enough to return to the Chicago lineup after recovering from major knee surgery on Nov. 8. "It's a tough call, [Adams is] one of my leaders," coach Denis Savard said. "He really has worked hard to get back. He understands. He's ready. Day by day we'll see what happens." He has no fantasy value.

Kevyn Adams could return to the Chicago lineup on Friday.

Adams has been recovering from major knee surgery and he hasn't played since November 8th. He's made a remarkable recovery and he's about five to six weeks ahead of schedule.

Kevyn Adams has proven to be a fast healer, as he draws very close to returning to the Chicago lineup.

He may be able to play as soon as this Friday against the Sharks. "He's at least a month and a half ahead of schedule," said coach Denis Savard. "That tells you something about his dedication."

Kevyn Adams practised with his teammates for the first time Saturday since he underwent major reconstructive surgery on his left knee in December.

Adams could return to action for a game against the Oilers on March 9th. However, we can't imagine why anyone would want to put him in their fantasy lineup.

Kevyn Adams could return to action in approximately three weeks.

He has resumed skating and is recovering nicely following major reconstructive knee surgery. Adams is not a fantasy factor so his eventual return to game action is of little consequence to those in hockey pools.

Kevyn Adams is busy rehabbing his surgically repaired knee.

Adams is doing strength exercises on his quadriceps muscle and working hard to keep the swelling down. "The first six weeks are pretty minimal in terms of how much I'm allowed to do," he said. "But they're critical to keeping that strength up because then you're able to bounce back if your quad can stay strong." He still hopes to be able to return to the Blackhawks lineup by the playoffs, should the team be a part of the Stanley Cup tournament.

Kevyn Adams is expected to have surgery once the swelling in his knee goes down in roughly seven to ten days.

After that it will take five to six months for him to fully recovery after tearing his ACL and MCL in his left knee last Wednesday. "He could be back for the first round of the playoffs," coach Denis Savard said hopefully.

Kevyn Adams believes he can make a return to the Blackhawks lineup should the team make the playoffs.

Adams suffered a season-ending injury on Wednesday after tearing his ACL and MCL in his left knee. "The standard treatment for this is six months, but I've always been a quick healer, so I'm going to try and push the envelope a little and hopefully get back before then," he said. "If you have a positive attitude and you realize that it's just a bump in the road, then you get back and you get through it quicker."

Newly acquired defensive specialist Kevyn Adams will likely miss the rest of the season, and possibly longer, after he tore both his anterior cruciate and medial collateral ligaments.

Adams was on the receiving end of a punishing check into the boards by one of the Blue Jackets' numerous bruising blueliners, Ole-Kristian Tollefsen, was forced to leave the game with the aid of his teammates. This is a tough pill to swallow for the Blackhawks as he was an integral piece to their recent resurgence, as a strong penalty killer and shut-down forward. This may open the door for rookie sensations, Jonathan Toews and Patrick Kane, to step up and earn some hard minutes on the PK.

The Blackhawks have acquired defensive and faceoff specialist Kevyn Adams from the Coyotes in exchange for Radim Vrbata.

This is a very quiet but good acquisition on the part of Chicago. Adams will certainly from part of a shutdown unit and will provide the Hawks with excellent penalty killing. He is not a fantasy asset but is a fine "real hockey" addition to the Windy City squad.
