Sharp was back on the ice Tuesday night at Minnesota, skating on the second line with Patrick Kane and Marcus Kruger. The 31-year-old Sharp last played on March 6 when he was hurt against Colorado on a hit along the boards by Avalanche defenceman Ryan O'Byrne.
Sharp led the Blackhawks with 33 goals last season, to go with 36 assists. He has five goals and 13 assists in 24 games this year.
Obviously a lot happened in a short period of time. At the end of the day, considering everything I went through, I really felt close to my teammates and I really feel like what we accomplished, I know we didn't win it all. ... I'm really proud of how we got there and what we did once we got there.
