Kris Versteeg is a Canadian right winger on the Chicago Blackhawks.

Versteeg was drafted in 2004 by Boston, but was dealt to Chicago before ever playing in the NHL. He played 13 games in the 2007-08 season, scoring 2 goals and 4 points. In 2008-09, he saw an increase in playing time, and responded impressively, finishing the year with 22 goals and 53 points in his first full NHL season. In 2009-10, he helped the Blackhawks win the Stanley Cup, scoring 20 goals for the 2nd time in his short career, and finishing with 44 points. In the 2010 offseason, the Blackhawks were forced to shed salary, and Versteeg was traded to the Toronto Maple Leafs for prospect Viktor Stalberg in a package deal. He will be expected to play top six minutes with the Leafs and could have the potential for an even bigger breakout season.
