Description: Kris Versteeg has scored two goals with five assists and 22 SOG in 12 games since Florida traded him to Chicago.
Insight: Versteeg, who is in his second stint with the Blackhawks, had the same exact goal and assist total in 18 games with the Panthers, but he was a -9 compared to a +2 with Chicago. He's not a good fantasy option in most leagues.

Insight: Versteeg had 54 points last season but only played 10 games this year due to injuries. The Panthers have lost two potential veteran trade chips in Stephen Weiss and Versteeg for the season. Youngsters Jonathan Huberdeau (19), Peter Mueller (24) and Drew Shore (22) should continue to skate on the top line while Tomas Kopecky will resume skating on the second line with Marcel Goc and Tomas Fleischmann.

Description: Kris Versteeg and Stephen Weiss each scored two goals along with two assists in the Panthers' 7-4 win over Tampa Bay on Monday. Yahoo Sports

3/3/2011 11:54:00 PM
Description: Kris Versteeg scored two goals with a +2 in the Flyers' 3-2 loss to Toronto on Thursday. TSN
Insight: Versteeg was traded by the Leafs to the Flyers just over two weeks ago and was facing his former team for the first time since the trade. He had scored just an empty-net goal and an assist in his previous seven games as a Flyer, so he clearly saved his best game thus far for his former team.
 
2/14/2011 10:02:00 PM
Description: The Flyers picked up Versteeg from Toronto on Monday in exchange for first- and third-round picks.
Insight: According to NHL.com, Flyers GM Paul Holmgren said of Versteeg: "He's a quality forward that can play in a lot of different roles for our hockey team. He can move up and down our lineup. He can kill penalties. He can play on the power play. We think he's a guy that over the last few years, particularly in Chicago, has really blossomed into a good forward and we think he's going to be a really good addition to our team." Versteeg has 14 goals and 35 points for the season. (RapidDraft.com)
 
2/14/2011 7:12:00 PM
Description: The Toronto Maple Leafs have traded forward Kris Versteeg to the Philadelphia Flyers for a first-round pick and a third-round pick in the 2011 draft. TSN
Insight: Versteeg's time as a Leaf lasted only 53 games, although he scored a respectable 35 points (14g-21a) this season. He should be able to improve on his (-13) with the Flyers, but don't expect him to see any more icetime than he was with the Leafs, as the Flyers are much more well-stocked at forward than the Leafs.
 
1/15/2011 1:29:00 PM
Description: Kris Versteeg will miss Saturday's game against Calgary with an upper-body injury. AM 640
Insight: Versteeg (six points in last four games) and the entire Leafs' offense has been on fire recently, but you'll unfortunately need to bench Versteeg on Saturday. Consider him day-to-day for now.
