  • Hjalmarsson (personal) is back with the team following the birth of his child, Eric Lear of Blackhawks TV reports. As expected, Hjalmarsson will be ready and available for Game 1 against the Predators after sitting out the final three games of the season. The blueliner figures to slot back into the Hawks' second pairing alongside Brian Campbell and should continue seeing around 21 minutes of ice time per contest.

  • Hjalmarsson (personal) isn't travelling with the Blackhawks for their current three-game road trip, Mark Lazerus of the Chicago Sun-Times reports. Hjalmarsson remained in Chicago to be with his wife for the birth of their child, which means he could realistically miss the final three games of the regular season. Either way, the Swedish blueliner will be ready to go for Game 1 of the playoffs. With Hjalmarsson unavailable, Michal Rozsival or Michal Kempny will likely draw into the lineup for Tuesday's game against Colorado.

  • Hjalmarsson will get the night off Friday when the Blackhawks take on the Red Wings, Mark Lazerus of the Chicago Sun-Times reports. Coach Joel Quenneville noted that he wanted to give Hjalmarsson and Johnny Oduya the night off in order to ease them back into action. The pair will almost certainly be available for Sunday's game against the Wild, but in the meantime, Michal Kempny and Michal Rozsival figure to draw into the lineup Friday.

  • Blackhawks' Niklas Hjalmarsson: Taken off IR
    By RotoWire Staff

    Hjalmarsson (upper body) was activated from injured reserve Wednesday, Eric Lear of Blackhawks TV reports. The shot-blocking extraordinaire will be ready for Thursday's home tilt with the Ducks, bolstering the blue line in conjunction with Johnny Oduya being welcomed back following last Tuesday's trade from the Stars. With 14 points (five goals, nine assists) and a plus-12 rating to complement 156 blocked shots in 60 games, Hjalmarsson will be worth plugging back into starting lineups in certain leagues.

  • Hjalmarsson (upper body) is hoping to be ready for Thursday's clash with Anaheim, Mark Lazerus of the Chicago Sun-Times reports. Hjalmarsson has been sidelined for the Hawks' last four outings with this ailment. Prior to getting hurt, the blueliner was averaging 21:41 of ice time per game -- third highest on the team. Despite logging big minutes, the 29-year-old has had minimal fantasy numbers -- five goals and nine helpers -- and remains a mid-range fantasy option at best. If he is cleared in time, Hjalmarsson will need to be activated off injured reserve, with Michal Rozsival the leading candidate to be heading down to the minors.
