Many Blackhawks fans weren’t happy when the team traded Patrick Sharp to Dallas in July, and the forward’s recent play isn’t doing anything to ease the pain.

Sharp’s first-period goal against Detroit on Sunday was his sixth goal in his past eight games.

Sharp’s departure stings even worse when considering Chicago’s recent struggles coupled with Sharp’s recent quote saying he hasn’t had this much fun playing hockey in a “long time.”

A Blackhawk from 2005-2015, Sharp was part of three Stanley-Cup winning teams in Chicago. He had 511 points in 679 career games with the Blackhawks.

The Stars are 11-3 and winners of five of their past six. Chicago, meanwhile, has lost four of its past five.
