Chicago Blackhawks scratch F Kris Versteeg for Game 6 against St. Louis Blues

CHICAGO - The Blackhawks have scratched forward Kris Versteeg for Game 6 of their first-round playoff series against the St. Louis Blues.

Versteeg played in each of the first five playoff games, compiling two assists. He also warmed up before Sunday's game.

Forward Joakim Nordstrom was active for the first time in the post-season.

Blackhawks defenceman Brent Seabrook also returned after he was suspended for the previous three games. With Seabrook active, defenceman Sheldon Brookbank was scratched.

Quote of the Day

He seemed to thrive on his own and didn't really need any push from me. I certainly don't want to get in the way of the coaches. You see how that goes sometimes. I never really worried about it and just enjoyed the ride.
