Chicago Blackhawks assign Auburn native Jeremy Morin to AHL Rockford

(AP) New Jersey Devils rookie Keith Kinkaid has never been a fan of the shootout, and that was long before he faced Jonathan Toews and Patrick Kane in his first NHL start. Toews and Kane scored on the Blackhawks’ first two chances, and Chicago rallied late and earned its seventh straight victory, 3-2 over the Devils on Tuesday night. ”They are top guys in the NHL,” Kinkaid said after his outstanding 37-save performance ended in a loss. ”Obviously I was a little too far out on the Toews one, I wanted to get the leg out, and then Kane has a great set of hands. You never know what he is going to do.” Chicago had to work to get the best of the 25-year old Kinkaid, who was called up from Albany earlier Tuesday with the Devils playing the second game of a back-to-back set. New Jersey had the better of play for almost the first 25 minutes before the Blackhawks started showing why they are one of the NHL’s top teams. ”Early on, he was playing pretty well,” Toews said of Kinkaid. ”We threw some shots at him and I think, if anything, we built his confidence up a little bit throughout the game. Nowadays, even backups are strong, and you have to make their job as tough as you can.” Bryan Bickell and Duncan Keith had goals in regulation for Chicago, whose winning streak matches the NHL high for this season. Scott Darling made 22 saves, including two stops in the shootout. Jordin Tootoo and Stephen Gionta scored for New Jersey. source: http://www.cbssports.com/nhl/gametracker/recap/NHL_20141209_CHI@NJ

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. source: http://auburnpub.com/sports/local/f0a11a89-f3a2-5e69-b8c4-1ab6726cf9c0.html
