Instead, look for Peter Regin or Joakim Nordstrom to join the club ahead of Fridays game against the Capitals. On the ice, Regin makes the most sense. He can effectively play center or wing and can also contribute on both special teams units. However, the Hawks would risk losing Regin on a waiver claim if/when they did decide to send him back to Rockford later. With that, I expect it will indeed be Nordstrom who gets the call. Yes, Regin has cleared waivers before, but with the recent rash of league-wide injuries, a cheap, experienced veteran like Regin could be too good for other teams to pass us. Nordstrom was recently named captain of the Rockford IceHogs, where he has six points in 11 games. He had a tremendous training camp before last season and unexpectedly made the opening night roster. The speed and size of the NHL game quickly caught up with him, however, and he didnt stick. When all was said and done, Nordstrom played a total of 16 games, adding a goal and two assists in those contests. He was used primarily in a defensive role with Brandon Bollig and Marcus Kruger on the fourth line, and he has the zone starts to show it 82.4 percent of his shifts began in the defensive or neutral zones. He wasnt on the roster to score, and I doubt that will change this year if he is indeed called up. source:

Youngstown News, NHL roundup

Its definitely cool. Im proud to wear this jersey and represent Chicago and hockey players. Its pretty exciting. Starting off the season with the Rockford IceHogs of the AHL, Darling received his opportunity when Blackhawks starting goalie Corey Crawford went down with an upper-body injury. We were in Toronto at the time, Darling said. When I got off the ice after practice, the coaches pulled me aside and told me the situation, that I was going to Chicago. I hopped in a cab from the rink and went to the airport and was on a place an hour after I got off the ice. I didnt know if it was going to be just for a night, I wasnt really sure. But I was super excited for my first call-up. I called my girlfriend and my parents and those were the only calls I was able to make before I got on a plane. Darling was the back-up to Antii Raanta for three games before getting the start against the Ottawa Senators, making 32 saves and leading the Blackhawks to the 2-1 win, his first victory in an NHL sweater. I was pretty nervous during the day while I was waiting to go to the rink, he said. I was thinking about the game and also reminiscing about the path that led me there, just looking back on everything. By the time I got to the rink, I tried to treat it like another hockey game. source:


The Wild were the last team in the NHL to lose at home this season. They nearly pulled within one with 3:05 remaining when Mikko Koivus rebound shot slipped past Greiss, but the goal was waved off and the call was upheld by replay review due to goaltender interference on Mikael Granlund. Patric Hornqvist added an empty-netter to seal it for the Penguins, who were outshot 34-22. The Wild have outshot every opponent this season. All but one team theyve faced made the playoffs last season. Hurricanes 4, Blue Jackets 2 COLUMBUS Zach Boychuk, Riley Nash, Justin Faulk and Eric Staal scored in the Hurricanes win over the Blue Jackets. The Hurricanes, who started 0-6-2, have won three in a row. Cam Ward made 17 saves. Nick Foligno scored twice for the injury-riddled Blue Jackets, who have lost six in a row. His jam shot with 5:23 left cut the lead to 3-2. Columbus threatened to tie it, but Ward stopped Scott Hartnells point-blank shot and Ryan Johansens rush. source:

Reimer made the save to keep it scoreless. At 14:10 of the first, Kadri gave the Maple Leafs a 1-0 lead. Phil Kessel passed the puck to Daniel Winnik, who got it to Kadri in front for the goal, his fourth of the season. With Sam Carrick – in his NHL debut – in the penalty box for hooking Trevor van Riemsdyk, the Blackhawks tied it. Richards blasted a slap shot from the left faceoff circle short side on Reimer to make it 1-1 at 16:28. A hooking call on Bozak early in the second led to Chicago’s second power-play goal. Off a pass from Kane, Seabrook fired a one-timer glove side at 4:18 to give the Blackhawks the 2-1 lead. Sixty-four seconds later at 5:22 of the second, James van Riemsdyk took advantage of a turnover from Johnny Oduya and fired past Crawford to tie it again. It was van Riemsdyk’s 100th goal and 100th point with the Leafs. Early in the third period, Toronto’s third line took advantage of a strong shift in the offensive zone. source:

Maple Leafs edge Blackhawks 3-2

It was the first shutout of the season for Crawford, a Montreal native. The Canadiens (8-4-1), winless in three games and 1-3-1 in their last five, absorbed a second straight lopsided defeat at home, following a 6-2 loss to Calgary on Sunday. Carey Price made 27 saves. Montreal’s P.A. Parenteau, David Desharnais and Brendan Gallagher all missed early chances before Toews put Chicago ahead with a power-play goal at 11:19. The Blackhawks captain deflected in Duncan Keith’s point shot. The Blackhawks scored 9:56 into the second when Versteeg’s pass from the corner went off Rene Bourque’s leg and in on the short side. Richards was at the doorstep to deflect Patrick Sharp’s pass into the top corner 2:22 into the third period to make it 3-0. Four minutes later, Sharp was helped off the ice after a check into the boards by Alexei Emelin. There was no immediate word on his condition. Kane fought off a check from Dale Weise to finish a feed from Toews at 12:31. Versteeg scored his second of the night into an open side off of Bryan Bickell’s pass. source:
