.5 PPG in the AHL as a 20 yr old is not bad at all, especially with the competitiveness of the AHL this year due to the lockout.

The stats are subject to change, but Brandon Saad had a goal and 3 assists tonight in a Rockford 5-2 win. Now up to 18 points in 30 games.

Really played great tonight against the Griffins, skated hard and was dangerous almost all night. Very impressive performance, tip of the cap even as a rival fan.

I'd be surprised if he doesn't get some NHL time this year. He's always been a bit of a hot and cold player, but when he's hot he's blazing.

I've watched most Icehogs games this year and Saad is the one that has the most potential to me. He may have worse stats than guys like Jeremy Morin, Ben Smith, Brandon Pirri, Marcus Kruger, ect but they don't have the tools that he does either. I predict by the end of the year he will be racking up the points on Rockford...especially now that the forward depth isn't so crowded. No need to rush him on the NHL roster this season. I'd like to wait until next year and I'll bet he makes the team out of camp.
Speaking of which....1 goal, 3 assists, 4 points, 5 shots for Brandon Saad tonight. Deserved a night like tonight after being one of the few to play hard on Wednesday.

Another goal and assist tonight, including a great OT winner. 6 points in his last 2 games. He wants to be in the NHL.

The guy just keeps playing his ass off every shift. If you love hockey and the way it is supposed to be played, watch a Hawks game and keep an eye on this guy. Determination all the time, fits this team like a glove.

Looks real good out there. Unfortunately for him, with 4 quality forwards on Chicago, racking up pts will not be easy.

Yeah, he looks great out there. It's a shame he hasn't gotten the production on paper but it's out there on the ice and the fact that Q continues to play him with Toews and Hossa despite minimal production (stats wise) shows it.

I like his game quite a bit. He impressed me in the game against the Canucks, he is very strong and works very hard on the boards. The hands look very quick and soft for a big guy too. Should be a good top six winger in the near future IMO, great pick for Chicago. Which kind of pisses me off.

Brian Burke's the one who traded the pick used to take him so the Leafs could threaten Kessel with an offer sheet.

The points aren't there yet, but he's playing like an NHL veteran. Commited on the back-check, draws sooo many penalties with his speed and determination and plays a 200 ft. game. He's doing all the little things well and he's getting/creating chances.. a bit more luck (like against ANA last night) and the points should start coming a little more consistently.

The points are coming, look out, wouldn't be surprised to see him end up in the Calder discussion near the end of the season. He'll get more PP time now with Sharp out.
