Saad tallied a shorthanded goal and a pair of assists in Saturday's Game 4 double-overtime win over the Ducks.

Saad notched the shortie when Ducks defenseman Francois Beauchemin got tied up with a referee during his team's first-period power play, allowing the Blackhawks winger to break away unmarked to the net. It went down as his first goal since Game 1 of the second-round matchup with the Wild, but that wouldn't be where his night would stop. Saad had a hand in each of the Blackhawks' next two goals to finish with a game-high plus-3 rating.

Saad netted the game-tying goal in Tuesday's 3-2 overtime win over the Predators for Game 4.

Saad has scored in consecutive games in this series, with his Game 3 deposit Sunday counting as the game-winning goal. The winger has been quite accurate shooting the puck, lighting the lamp on 25% of his shots in the quarterfinal round. He's a sneaky fantasy play skating on a team with a handful of more recognizable names, such as Jonathan Toews and Marian Hossa, to name a few.

Saad recorded two assists in Friday's win over the Sabres.

That's six points in six games for Saad, who hit the 50-point barrier for the first time in his young career. With 22 goals and 192 shots on goal, the 22-year-old, who plays on the power play with Jonathan Toews, has become a trusted fantasy option in most leagues.

Saad registered a power-play assist in Sunday's 4-3 win over the Jets.

Saad has points in three straight games, and perhaps more notably, saw 3:27 of power-play time Sunday, second on the Blackhawks only to Duncan Keith. With a top-six role at even strength also in hand, Saad might make for a quality roster addition in medium-sized or deeper formats for the final two weeks of the season.

Saad scored his 21st goal of the season and dished out an assist in Saturday's 6-2 win over over the Sharks.

The career year continues for the 22-year-old, who has reached (and now surpassed) the 20-goal plateau for the first time in his career. Saad also needs just three more points to eclipse his career high of 47 in that department as well, something that should come sooner than later skating for a potent Chicago offense.

Saad snapped a three-game scoreless slump Thursday with a goal and an empty-net assist in a win over Florida.

Saad continues to post solid numbers, as he's matched last year's 19 goals and is now just five shy of last year's 47 points. But the big breakout fantasy owners may have been banking on simply hasn't arrived this year.

Saad potted his 18th goal of the season in Wednesday's 3-2 shootout loss to the Red Wings.The winger has five points on his current four game point streak, and he now has 40 through 58 games on the season. He's on pace to easily eclipse his career high of 47 points set last season, and has the potential to emerge as an elite fantasy winger over the next couple years.

Saad notched a goal and assist -- with both coming on the power play -- in Wednesday's 5-4 loss to the Canucks.With roughly two months to play, Saad is quickly encroaching on last season's total of 47 points. With two goals and three assists over his last four games, Saad has been able to accelerate his scoring pace and atone for a rather slow start to the season. As a result of Saad's uptick in production, coach Joel Quenneville has bestowed the winger with more ice time. He's exceeded his season average TOI in four of the last five contests.

Saad dished out a pair of assists in Sunday's 4-2 win over the Blues.

Saad broke out of a personal slump on Friday with his first goal in six games, and kept his play up with a multi-point effort to follow it up. The 22-year-old has slowed off of his pace a little bit, but with 35 points through 53 contests, he should be able to top his career-high of 47 from last season.

Saad buried the overtime winner Friday, notching his 16th of the year as the Blackhawks downed the Jets 2-1.

The snipe snaps a six-game goalless drought for Saad, who picked up just a measly single assist during that span. He's set to surpass his career-best goal total of 19 set last year, and if he can record 15 more points in the season's final 30 games, he'll outdo his personal best of 47 from last year in that department, as well.
