, , Leave a comment

Morin has no points in 15 NHL games this season. The winger was assigned to Rockford of the AHL for a conditioning assignment Tuesday because he wasnt playing at all with the loaded Blackhawks. Its a good chance for Mo to play and for Timmy to join our organization, Blackhawks coach Joel Quenneville said before Sunday nights game against Calgary. The 23-year-old Erixon is looking to get established in that continued rotation and show he can play at our level, Quenneville continued. Well get to find out a little bit more about him tonight in joining our team, and complement our team game as well. Morin, 23, has eight goals and eight assists in 54 career regular-season games, all with Chicago. He also played in two postseason games in May. The Blue Jackets next game is Tuesday night in Detroit. Erixon had one goal and five assists in 19 games with Columbus this season. He scored his first NHL goal on Oct. 26 at Los Angeles. Its exciting for me, Erixon said. Its a classy team and theyve got a great history. The Blackhawks lost rookie defenseman Trevor van Riemsdyk to a broken left kneecap last month. source: http://www.washingtontimes.com/news/2014/dec/14/blackhawks-send-morin-to-blue-jackets-for-erixon/?utm_source=RSS_Feed&utm_medium=RSS

Louis to the road win. Kevin Shattenkirk had a goal and an assist and defenseman Alex Pietrangelo also scored for the Blues , who have won four straight and gave Paul Stastny a victory in his return to Denver. Stastny was back for the first time since signing a four-year deal with St. Louis in the offseason. He spent his first eight seasons in Colorado. Stastny was booed when he stepped on the ice for his first shift and the first few times he touched the puck. He didn’t register a point. Erik Johnson scored twice and Gabriel Landeskog had two assists for the slumping Avalanche , who have lost five of six. BLUE JACKETS 4, PENGUINS 3, SO COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) – Cam Atkinson and Ryan Johansen scored in the shootout to lift Columbus to its sixth straight win. Sergei Bobrovsky had 33 saves through overtime, and then stopped Evgeni Malkin and Brandon Sutter in the tiebreaker to preserve the win.

NHL gets it right with no hearing for Seidenberg on Jonathan Toews hit | Puck Daddy – Yahoo Sports

Weve seen dozens of suspensions for boarding. Many involve an element of charging this doesnt. Nearly all involve the he should have never delivered the hit if he saw his numbers mantra that players are taught from the time theyre first able to grip a stick. The first time Seidenberg sees Toews numbers is when the Blackhawks captain is rolling on the ground. Again: Its a battle for a loose puck. Claude Julien came off as unfeeling in his postgame comments, but hes sorta correct: I certainly dont like seeing those kinds of things, but this is where its important to take care of ourselves. So, I view that five-on-three were going to close a gap quickly, and Dennis [Seidenberg] is a strong individual, said Julien. Is he supposed to get weak because of that situation? Or he just plays to his strength. I wasnt happy. I looked at it, and it could be arguable, but from my end of it I think its what it is. Our guys need to finish their checks and sure, youve got to be careful, but Im sure he knew that [Seidenberg] was coming. Thats code for Toews turned his back to the play, which is a bit much. source: http://sports.yahoo.com/blogs/nhl-puck-daddy/nhl-gets-it-right-with-no-hearing-for-seidenberg-on-jonathan-toews-hit-163034029.html

(USATSI) The Chicago Blackhawks have traded Jeremy Morin to the Columbus Blue Jackets for defenseman Tim Erixon . Morin had reportedly been frustrated about his playing time and gave a play me or trade me ultimatum. It appears he got his wish. Morin had struggled to find his way in the Blackhawks lineup and never seemed to gain the trust of head coach Joel Quenneville. He had zero points in 15 games this season, which led to a lot of healthy scratches and he was later sent to the AHL on a conditioning assignment. All of those factors, plus the ultimatum, made a big dent in the once-promising prospect’s trade value. The 23-year-old, who was a second-round selection of the Atlanta Thrashers in the 2009 NHL Entry Draft and acquired by Chicago in the trade for Dustin Byfuglien , has been a victim of trying to find a spot on a star-laden team. Though Morin has seen stints in five seasons, he’s never played more than 24 games in a single campaign. That came last season, during which he registered 11 points. Despite the lack of NHL work, Morin has been extremely productive at the AHL level. Last season, Morin had 47 points in 47 games. source: http://www.cbssports.com/nhl/eye-on-hockey/24887001/blackhawks-trade-jeremy-morin-to-blue-jackets-for-tim-erixon
