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.

Saad netted a pair of goals in Sunday's 6-3 loss to the Stars.

Saad is on a four game point streak now, having potted five goals and adding an assist in that span. The 22-year-old is on pace to top the 50-point barrier for the first time of his career, and could be worthy of fantasy consideration if available.

Saad put home the only goals of the night for the Blackhawks in a 5-2 loss to the Oilers on Friday.

Both tallies were set up at even strength by linemates Marian Hossa and Jonathan Toews, who helped Saad to his 11th and 12th goals of the season. The Pittsburgh-native is up to 27 points in 42 games this season, putting him on pace to slightly best his career mark of 19 goals and 47 points set last year.

Saad potted one of five Chicago goals in a narrow win over the Stars on Sunday.

Saad hasn't quite submitted the star-making season some might have had him pegged for after a 47-point showing as a 21-year-old, but he certainly hasn't qualified as a disappointment. With a goal in three of his last four games, Saad is on track to surpass the 50-point mark while sitting on a plus-7 rating. There's value to be had in that outside of shallow formats.
