Blackhawks' Saad injured, will be checked Monday

Sunday, 03.16.2014 / 10:34 PM / News

Brian Hedger - NHL.com Correspondent

CHICAGO -- Chicago Blackhawks forward Brandon Saad has an undisclosed upper-body injury and will be re-assessed Monday.

Saad, who’s versatile enough to play either wing on any line, left Chicago’s 4-1 victory against the Detroit Red Wings on Sunday night at United Center with 7:39 remaining in the second period.

He didn’t return, and Blackhawks coach Joel Quenneville said he will be re-assessed Monday.

“He seemed all right here [after the game]," Quenneville said. "I don't think it's too serious, but we'll have a better idea [Monday]."

Blackhawks consider adding Teravainen down stretch

Sunday, 03.16.2014 / 7:16 PM / News

Brian Hedger - NHL.com Correspondent

CHICAGO -- The Chicago Blackhawks will discuss adding 19-year-old forward Teuvo Teravainen, whose season has ended in Finland, coach Joel Quenneville said Sunday.

Teravainen's team in the Finnish Liiga, Jokerit, was eliminated from the playoffs Sunday. That means the 2012 first-round pick could join the Blackhawks soon, depending on internal conversations Quenneville said would take place following Chicago's game Sunday at United Center against the Detroit Red Wings (7:30 p.m. ET; TSN2, NBCSN).

Teravainen, the 18th pick in the 2012 NHL Draft, participated in Chicago's training camp and left an impression on Quenneville prior to heading back to Finland. He continued to impress by helping Finland win the gold medal at the 2014 IIHF World Junior Championship.

"That's something we'll talk about," Quenneville said of Teravainen's arrival. "We saw what he's capable of in camp, and I guess there was some real good progression to his season, as well, so you know, it could happen at some point."

Letang will practice with Penguins on Monday

Sunday, 03.16.2014 / 4:36 PM / News

Wes Crosby - NHL.com Correspondent

PITTSBURGH -- Pittsburgh Penguins defenseman Kris Letang will return to full practice Monday, less than two months since suffering a stroke, coach Dan Bylsma said Sunday.

Doctors ruled Letang, who has not played since Jan. 27, is well enough to return after not practicing with the Penguins in six weeks. Bylsma said the team knew there was a chance he could return to practice at this point, but the 2013 Norris Trophy finalist "still has some other things to go through."

Bylsma said the date of Letang's full return is to be determined.

"He's been working out. He's been skating on his own, doing quite a bit on his own," Bylsma said. "It's not a complete surprise."

Quote of the Day

I think I'm lucky to be here and you definitely don't take very many things for granted, if you take anything for granted. I definitely put my family and my wife and my close family in perspective, that they're the most important thing in the world. I want to do whatever I can to play hockey, but like I said, under the right circumstances.

— Stars forward Rich Peverley to "The Musers" radio show on The Ticket 1310 AM in Dallas
