Brandon Saad LW CHI 11 Days

Brandon Saad will draw back into the Blackhawks' lineup on Wednesday.

Saad spent Sunday's game in the press box, but Chicago still has high hopes for him. "He's a big part of our team; I liked how he practiced today," Blackhawks coach Joel Quenneville said on Tuesday. "He gives us a lot of intangibles. He brings skill to our lineup, has speed, he's dangerous off the rush, and heavy in the puck area. We can use him on both sides of the ice. He'll be useful as we go along here and it's one game, so let's move on and be excited about tomorrow's game." Saad has 45 points and 20 penalty minutes in 75 games in 2013-14.

Brandon Saad has taken it upon himself to help out Chicago newcomer Teuvo Teravainen.

"Any questions he has, I'm young, but I've been through it," said Saad. "Rooming with him is definitely going to help out, especially playing on the same line to get some of that chemistry off the ice." Saad is only 21 years of age but he already has 119 games of NHL experience under his belt.

He's unlikely to play Tuesday night against the Flyers as a result. Saad sustained an upper-body injury in Sunday's game Detroit, but coach Joel Quenneville didn't think the ailment was "too serious."

Brandon Saad will apparently stay on Chicago's top line even after Marian Hossa returns from an upper-body injury.

Saad and Jonathan Toews have exhibited excellent chemsitry and Chicago coach Joel Quenneville has indicated that when Hossa returns he will play the three of them together and move Patrick Sharp permantly to a line with Patrick Kane and Michal Handzus. The latter unit had tremendous success last season. "[Saad is] a big-bodied guy, kind of like Jonny - strong on the puck," Quenneville said. "They have a lot of similar traits, but their strength and controlling and containing and sustaining pucks is as good as there is in the game." High praise for Saad and great news for Saad owners.
