Sharp tallied a goal and an assist in Monday's 3-1 win over the Hurricanes.

Sharp ended a 19-game goalless slump on March 14, and didn't have to wait quite as long for the next one as he found the back of the net yet again four games later. The 33-year-old has turned in eight pointless performances in his last 11 outings, but each of the three times he managed to get on the scoresheet were multi-point efforts. The winger is having one of the worst seasons of his career, but he's still capable of providing enough to make him worth keeping around.

Sharp broke out of his 19-game goalless slump in a big way Saturday, sniping a pair of goals and skating to a plus-3 in a 6-2 win over the Sharks.

Sharp got the party started 6:03 into the first, and added a second snipe for good measure with just under five minutes remaining in the third. His recent goal-scoring woes have been well documented, but he hasn't even been contributing in the assist department either, having recorded just two helpers in the aforementioned 19 games. It's hard not to consider him an elite fantasy option given his recent success (34 goals, 78 points, 313 SOG, plus-13 last year), but with just 12 goals and 22 assists this season, he remains one of the biggest fantasy disappointments of 2014-15.

Sharp is looking to end a goal drought on Saturday that has lasted since Jan. 28, CSN Chicago reports.

Sharp has eight goals and 14 assists in his career against Saturday's opponent, the Sharks. While Sharp missed some time with a leg injury, his 10 goals and 22 assists is probably his worst season since 2008-09 where he collected 26 goals and 18 assists in 61 games. In 2012-13 he missed extensive time with a wrist injury and compiled six goals and 14 assists in 28 games. The Blackhawks' mix this season on offense has definitely not helped Sharp this season.
