      Blackhawks' Brandon Mashinter: Recalled by Blackhawks

      Mashinter was recalled by the Blackhawks on Monday. Mashinter's last NHL action came with the Rangers in 2013-14 when he went without a point in six games. He's collected seven points through the first 12 games for AHL Rockford so far this season, and it has earned him a promotion to the NHL squad. The 27-year-old winger has appeared in 23 total NHL games over the course of his career, but has yet to notch a point. He could make his season debut with the Blackhawks as soon as Thursday against the Devils.

However, he suffered an injury late in the preseason, prompting the Blackhawks to re-sign Daniel Carcillo and drop Brandon Mashinter once he returned to full health. Mashinter could get a call to come up to the Blackhawks at some point later in the season if Carcillo falls victim to injury.
