Desjardins (lower-body) is expected to return this weekend.
Desjardins has not appeared in a game this season, but is expected to return in one of the Blackhawks’ back-to-back games this weekend. Desjardins will likely take Vince Hinostroza or Dennis Rasmussen’s spot in the lineup.
The Blackhawks have acquired Andrew Desjardins from the Sharks for Ben Smith.
Desjardins, 27, switches places with Ben Smith and should slot right in on the Blackhawks fourth line. He has just eight points (5G / 3A) in 56 games, so moving to Chicago is not going to bump up his fantasy value.
