Blackhawks' Andreas Athanasiou: Inks two-year deal
Athanasiou signed a two-year, $8.5 million contract with the Blackhawks on Wednesday, per PuckPedia.
Athanasiou was able to turn his second-best season into a two-year deal after logging 20 goals and 20 helpers in 81 contests in 2022-23. The 28-year-old forward was often playing in a top-six role for Chicago, especially later in the season after trades decimated the team's forward depth. He's a natural center but may fit better on the wing, and the potential that he could end up playing with Connor Bedard makes Athanasiou slightly more interesting for fantasy managers....

Athanasiou registered two assists, four shots on goal, a plus-3 rating, two blocked shots and two PIM in Monday's 5-0 win over the Senators.
Outside of scoring a goal himself, Athanasiou played a large role Monday.

Blackhawks' Andreas Athanasiou: Plays hero role Friday
Athanasiou secured the game-winning goal in Friday's 4-3 overtime win over the Senators.
Athanasiou's fourth shot was the charm, as he crashed the net and earned his third game-winning goal of the season. Double A can be tough to contain in open space, hence why he's deployed in 3-on-3 situations, but he hasn't been much of a factor on the man advantage over the years. In fact, he's tacked on just four power-play points in the last three seasons between the Kings and Blackhawks, respectively.... See More ... See Less
Blackhawks' Andreas Athanasiou: Leads offense with three points
Athanasiou scored a goal on eight shots, dished two assists and went plus-2 in Friday's 4-3 overtime win over the Coyotes.

Athanasiou hadn't produced a multi-point effort since Nov. 16, but he's been fairly steady for a middle-six forward in a weak offense. He's at 11 goals, eight helpers, 92 shots on net, a minus-14 rating and 32 blocked shots through 49 appearances this season.... See More ... See Less
Blackhawks' Andreas Athanasiou: Logs helper

Blackhawks' Andreas Athanasiou: Picks up assist
Athanasiou logged an assist and three hits in Sunday's 2-1 loss to the Kings.
Athanasiou helped out on an Ian Mitchell goal in the third period. With Tyler Johnson (ankle) unlikely to travel with the Blackhawks during their three-game swing through western Canada, Athanasiou could soon find himself back in a top-six role.

Blackhawks' Andreas Athanasiou: Tallies in Thursday's win
Athanasiou scored a goal on four shots and added four PIM in Thursday's 3-2 win over the Avalanche.
Athanasiou ended a three-game point drought with his second-period tally. The four shots also represented his most in a game since Dec. 21. The 28-year-old forward has been inconsistent on offense with nine goals, 13 points, 74 shots, 26 PIM and a minus-15 rating through 39 appearances this season. He's lost his spot in the top six, and playing on a low-scoring team means there are likely better options than Athanasiou that are available to fantasy managers.... See More ... See Less

Blackhawks' Andreas Athanasiou: Picks up helper in loss
Athanasiou registered an assist and went minus-2 in Sunday's 5-2 loss to the Sharks.
Athanasiou set up a Sam Lafferty goal in the second period. The helper was Athanasiou's first since Nov. 3, though he managed to score five goals in that span. The 28-year-old's inconsistent offense has seen him bumped down to the third line lately, which gives him little fantasy appeal on a weak team. He has eight goals, four assists, 66 shots on net, 27 blocked shots, 22 PIM and a minus-14 rating through 35 outings.... See More ... See Less
Blackhawks' Andreas Athanasiou: Lights lamp in loss
Athanasiou scored his eighth goal of the season in Saturday's 4-1 loss to the Blue Jackets.
He gave Chicago a 1-0 lead midway through the first period, taking advantage of a failed Columbus clearing attempt and ripping the puck past Joonas Korpisalo through a partial screen, but that was all the offense Athanasiou's squad could muster. It's the 28-year-old's second goal in the last four games, but those are his only points in the last 15 as he remains far from the fantasy radar.... See More ... See Less
