Chicago Blackhawks assign Auburn native Jeremy Morin to AHL Rockford

We’re expecting him to play,” Quenneville said. “It gives us some options, helps our power play and it’s good to get him back playing as well.” Sharp, who led the Blackhawks with 34 goals and a career-high 78 points last season, has three goals and six assists in 13 games in 2014-15. Sharp’s timing couldn’t be any better since he scored half of Chicago’s 10 goals last season during a two-game season sweep of the Devils. That includes his fourth career hat trick in a 5-3 win in Newark on Jan. 3. Duncan Keith had three assists in that matchup, and he’s totaled eight points in his past 10 games overall. Brandon Saad has three goals and two assists in four games, tallying one of each against Nashville. The left wing had three points against New Jersey (11-13-4) last season. With Corey Crawford still out with an injured leg, the Blackhawks will again turn to rookie Scott Darling in net. He made 32 saves Saturday after being recalled from Rockford of the AHL for the third time this season last week, improving to 3-1 with a 1.73 goals-against average on the season. source: http://sports.yahoo.com/news/blackhawks-devils-preview-055929008–nhl.html

I don’t think it was our best game, but we hung in there until the end and we were able to do it in the shootout.” It appeared that Stephen Gionta’s goal on a baseball swing at 2:31 of the third period was going to be the winner. Defenseman Damon Severson took a shot from the right point that Darling stopped. Blackhawks defenseman Klas Dahlbeck used his glove to swat the rebound away, but Gionta lined it right into the net. Havlat nearly gave the Devils a two-goal lead later in the period but his breakaway drive hit off the post and crossbar with 9:30 left. Kinkaid had stopped Patrick Sharp on a breakaway just about 30 seconds before Gionta’s second goal of the season. Chicago was a little off its game in the first period, but it dominated the second, outshooting New Jersey 17-7. Bickell got the only goal with a shot from the right circle after he carried the puck into the Devils zone leading a 3-on-1 break. Sharp, playing for the first time since Nov. 4 because of a lower-body injury, got the only assist on the play set up by a Devils turnover. New Jersey’s goal also was the result of a turnover. source: http://www.foxsports.com/nhl/story/blackhawks-edge-devils-in-shootout-win-120914

This special evening Arleo Eye Associates More Deals Chicago Blackhawks assign Auburn native Jeremy Morin to AHL Rockford Saved (0) Comments The Chicago Blackhawks announced Auburn native Jeremy Morin has been sent to the American Hockey League’s Rockford IceHogs on a conditioning assignment Tuesday. Morin tallied 28 shots and 15 penalty minutes in 15 games with the Blackhawks this season. The 23-year-old was held to 10:13 of ice time or less in each contest, and didn’t register a point. Morin was a healthy scratch in each of the last eight games to prompt the conditioning stint, which can last up to two weeks. According to the Chicago Sun-Times, Morin was unhappy with his situation and asked to be traded if he wasn’t going to be played. Morin, a 2009 second-round pick of the Atlanta Thrashers who was traded to the Blackhawks in 2010, has eight goals and eight assists in 54 career regular season NHL games. Last year with Rockford, he had 24 goals and 23 assists for 47 points in 47 games. Copyright 2014 Auburn Citizen. source: http://auburnpub.com/sports/local/f0a11a89-f3a2-5e69-b8c4-1ab6726cf9c0.html

Its a big six points for them. The Blackhawks have found their offense in recent weeks, and that’s a big part of the reason why the team has been so hot and moved to within one point of the St. Louis Blues in the Central Division. They have scored 19 goals in their last five games and are playing their best hockey of the season. But could confidence be misguided? Crawford was playing sensationally before he suffered his injury while attending a concert in Chicago , and he was one of the main reasons the Blackhawks were keeping their heads above water before their recent hot streak. The goaltender is likely to be out another two weeks. Crawford has a 12-5-1 record with a 1.87 goals-against average and a .929 save percentage, and he has performed much better this season than he did last year, when he regularly gave up goals that he should have been able to stop. Crawford was the subject of a lot of fan criticism last season, and Quenneville would occasionally point out his flaws while maintaining public confidence in his No. 1 goalie. There has been nothing but praise for his play this season from the coaching staff and the fans. source: http://bleacherreport.com/articles/2294179-will-the-loss-of-corey-crawford-halt-the-chicago-blackhawks-recent-turnaround
