Vinnie Hinostroza registered two assists in Chicago's 7-1 win against Washington on Saturday.

Hinostroza has six goals and 18 points in 28 contests this season. His strong play with Chicago has been one of the silver linings in what has been shaping up to be a disappointing season for the franchise. It also might be enough to land him a permanent role with the club.

Alex DeBrincat is on a four-game point streak.

DeBrincat kept that run going with a goal in the Blackhawks' 7-1 win over Washington on Saturday. That was his third goal in the span of four games and pushed him to 22 markers this season. He's tied for second place with Yanni Gourde in the rookie goal scoring race. The only rookie with more markers is Brock Boeser (27).

Patrick Kane has reached the 500 assists milestone.

With that, Kane is the seventh US-born player in NHL history to record at least 300 goals and 500 assists in his career. The others are Mike Modano, Jeremy Roenick, Keith Tkachuk, Joe Mullen, Pat LaFontaine, and Phil Housley. Not a bad list to be a part of, and given that Kane is still just 29-years-old it's reasonable to believe he has quite a few more milestones left in him. "You think about the amount of great Americans that have played the game, how many players actually play hockey in the United States... Growing up all I wanted to do was play hockey," Kane said of being part of that list. "That means a lot, especially when you talk about American-born players."

Jonathan Toews posted a goal and two assists in a 7-1 win over the Washington Capitals on Saturday night.

Toews registered his second three-point effort of the season Saturday, scoring the opening goal of the game before assisting on Brandon Saad and Patrick Kane's goals in the victory. Toews now has 16 goals and 40 points in 59 games this season.

Anton Forsberg won his first start since Jan. 30, making 19 saves in a 7-1 blowout win over the Washington Capitals on Saturday night.

Prior to Saturday night, Forsberg had lost four straight starts for the 'Hawks. The goaltender's record improves to 6-11-3 with a 2.95 GAA and a .908 save percentage.

Anthony Duclair will be a healthy scratch in Saturday's game against the Washington Capitals.

It's the second time in three games that Duclair will serve as a healthy scratch. He has 11 goals and 20 points in 47 games this season. Tomas Jurco and Erik Gustafsson will also watch the game from the press box.

Alex DeBrincat has picked up 10 points in his last 10 games.

Sure, four of those 10 points came in one game, but the youngster is on a pretty respectable run considering how badly his team is struggling right now. He's up to 21 goals and 38 points in 58 games this season.
Feb 17 - 10:22 AM

Patrick Kane has scored just one goal in his last 12 games.

Kane also hasn't found the back of the net in each of his last five games. The Blackhawks have been struggling mightily of late, as they've dropped eight games in a row. Kane has 21 goals and 53 points in 58 games this season. The 'Hawks probably won't be able to turn their season around, but expect Kane to start producing with a little more regularity down the stretch. "It obviously hurts when you’re not producing offensively and the team’s losing," Kane said. "You feel like you could help out in certain situations. I felt like if I could have come up with something the past couple of games, maybe it could have been different."

Anton Forsberg will start for the Blackhawks on Saturday.

Forsberg will be going for his first win since Jan. 30. He has a 5-11-3 record, 3.05 GAA, and .907 save percentage in 22 contests this season.
Feb 16 - 3:41 PM

Brandon Saad scored his first goal in 17 games Thursday night.

Saad only had one assist during his 16-game goalless drought. He gave the Blackhawks a 2-0 lead at the time, but the Anaheim Ducks rallied to win the contest by a score of 3-2. Saad has 14 goals and 25 points in 58 matches this season.
Feb 16 - 10:52 AM

Anton Forsberg allowed three goals on 32 shots in Thursday's 3-2 loss to the Anaheim Ducks.

The Blackhawks went up 2-0 midway through the second period, but they ended up allowing the Ducks to score three unanswered goals in the second half of the game. Forsberg has now lost each of his last four decisions. He has a 5-11-3 record with a 3.05 goals-against-average and a .907 save percentage this season. Forsberg shouldn't pop up on your fantasy radar.
Feb 16 - 12:28 AM

Duncan Keith scored a goal in Thursday's 3-2 loss to the Anaheim Ducks.

Keith's power play goal at the 1:45 mark of the second period gave the Blackhawks a 1-0 at the time. The goal was the veteran's first tally of the 2017-18 season. Keith finished the night with four shots on goal and three blocked shots in 26:58 of ice time. He has 26 points and a minus-13 rating in 58 games this season. Brandon Saad also found the back of the net in Thursday's loss.

The Chicago Blackhawks have acquired Christopher DiDomenico from Ottawa in exchange for Ville Pokka.
