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 wasn’t playing at all with the loaded Blackhawks. The 23-year-old Morin has eight goals and eight assists in 54 career regular-season games, all with Chicago. He also played in two postseason games in May. Erixon, 23, 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. The Blackhawks lost rookie defenseman Trevor van Riemsdyk to a broken left kneecap last month. They reassigned defenseman Klas Dahlbeck to Rockford on Sunday.

Kane leads Blackhawks past Maple Leafs 4-0 – Yahoo Sports

Toronto Maple Leafs at Chicago Blackhawks - 12/21/2014

According to a DuPage County coroner statement, Reif was found unresponsive in his Lombard home, where he was pronounced dead at 8:32 a.m. The death still is under investigation by the coroners office and Lombard police, officials said. The above photo is a decal players wore for Reif on their helmets in Sunday’s game against Toronto. The Blackhawks held a moment of silence prior to the contest For all these guys who spend a lot of time together, it’s like losing a family member. Reif was in his ninth season with the Blackhawks, according to the team’s website. Following the game, a 4-0 win by the Blackhawks, there was clearly a sullen mood amongst the players. From the Chicago Tribune: Asked what made Reif so special, Patrick Sharp began to answer but then apologized and walked out of the dressing room. Duncan Keith, who was perhaps the player closest to Reif, said: “It was tough. To lose a close friend and have to try to play a hockey game on that same day, it wasn’t easy.” From CSN Chicago: “It’s tough to describe,” (Jonathan) Toews said, pausing between each sentence. “I think a lot of people, whether guys in this locker room or anyone else, other athletes, who have lost someone close to them and have to find ways to get their minds together and go out there any play as a team … It’s really tough to describe, something that still hasn’t sunk in for most of us yet. But we were definitely playing with heavy hearts out there. source: http://sports.yahoo.com/blogs/nhl-puck-daddy/blackhawks-assistant-equipment-manager-passes-away-sunday-morning-225437738.html
