  • Blackhawks' Brett Connolly: Waived Wednesday

    The Blackhawks placed Connolly on waivers Wednesday, Charlie Roumeliotis of NBC Sports Chicago reports.

    It's unlikely Connolly, who has six points in 35 games over the last two season, is claimed off waivers. Thus, the 29-year-old will likely head to AHL Rockford.

  • Blackhawks' Brett Connolly: Departs COVID-19 protocols

    Connolly cleared the NHL's COVID-19 protocols Friday, Carter Baum of the Blackhawks' official site reports.

    Connolly was absent from the last three games while in the virus protocols. The 29-year-old has averaged 10:51 of ice time and been held without a point over two appearances since being elevated to the active roster Jan.6.

  • Blackhawks' Brett Connolly: Added to COVID-19 protocols

    Connolly was designated for the NHL's COVID-19 protocols Saturday, Ben Pope of the Chicago Sun-Times reports.

    Connolly has averaged 8:25 of ice time and has been held pointless over his four NHL appearances this season. He recently completed his suspension sentence on Jan. 8 and has played in just two NHL contests since Dec. 18. Due to his entry into protocols, the 29-year-old will miss Saturday's game against Anaheim at a minimum.

  • Blackhawks' Brett Connolly: Activated from suspension

    Connolly has served his suspension, per CapFriendly. Therefore, he will be eligible to play against the Golden Knights on Saturday,

    Connolly was hit with a four-game suspension for interference against Tanner Kero of the Stars in a Dec. 18 contest. He was subsequently sent to the taxi squad and shuffled between that designation and the active roster. Connoly has appeared in just two NHL games this season.

  • Blackhawks' Brett Connolly: Added to active roster

    Connolly has been recalled to the Blackhawks' active roster and will serve the final game of his four-game suspension Thursday against Arizona, source reports.

    Connolly will be eligible to play Saturday versus Vegas after serving the final game of his four-game suspension Thursday, but it wouldn't be surprising to see him return to the taxi squad prior to that contest. He's gone scoreless through two top-level appearances this season.

  • Blackhawks' Brett Connolly: Shifted to taxi squad

    Connolly (suspension) was demoted to the taxi squad Wednesday, Charlie Roumeliotis of NBC Sports Chicago reports.

    Connolly still has one game remaining on his four-game suspension, which won't count unless he is elevated to the active roster for Thursday's matchup with Arizona. Even once his ban is over, the 29-year-old winger figures to remain a fringe roster player moving forward. As such, the British Columbia native shouldn't be expected to offer much in the way of fantasy value.

  • Blackhawks' Brett Connolly: Rises to active roster

    Connolly (suspension) was promoted from the taxi squad on Saturday, per CapFriendly.

    Connolly has yet to serve his four-game suspension, although the NHL's scheduling shuffle during the holiday break makes it unclear when the winger will be eligible to return.

  • Blackhawks' Brett Connolly: On taxi squad

    The Blackhawks added Connolly (suspension) to their taxi squad Monday.

    Connolly has yet to begin serving his four-game suspension.

  • Blackhawks' Brett Connolly: Sent down Tuesday

    Connolly (suspension) was sent down to AHL Rockford on Tuesday, per CapFriendly.

    Connolly wasn't going to be in the Blackhawks' lineup before the new year anyway after he received a four-game suspension for interference against the Stars' Tanner Kero. It's unclear if the 29-year-old Connolly will be allowed to play in the minors.

  • Blackhawks' Brett Connolly: Handed four-game suspension

    Connolly was suspended four games for interference against the Stars' Tanner Kero (upper body) in Saturday's game.

    Connolly leveled Kero near the boards in the first period. Since Kero never had possession, he was not in an eligible position to be hit, hence the lengthy suspension for interference on Connolly. He did not have a history of supplemental discipline prior to this instance. Connolly will be eligible to return Jan. 1 versus the Predators.

  • Blackhawks' Brett Connolly: Recalled Sunday

    Connolly was recalled from AHL Rockford on Sunday.

    The 29-year-old and one-time 22-goal-scorer (2018-19) has yet to set foot on NHL ice this season. Connolly has been reasonably productive with the IceHogs to the tune of 11 points in 16 games, so he should provide a nice bit of veteran depth with the Blackhawks if he's indeed pressed into action.

  • Blackhawks' Brett Connolly: Hits waivers

    Chicago waived Connolly on Tuesday, Scott Powers of The Athletic reports.

    Connolly picked up 19 goals and 33 points in 69 games with Florida in 2019-20 before experiencing a steep decline with just six points in 31 contests split between the Panthers and the Blackhawks in 2021-22, so he could get plucked off waivers by a forward-needy team. If not, the 29-year-old winger will likely be assigned to AHL Rockford.

  • Blackhawks' Brett Connolly: Practices Friday

    Connolly (concussion) is on the ice for Friday's training camp practice, Ben Pope of the Chicago Sun-Times reports.

    Connolly missed time late last season with a concussion, but it appears as though he has made a full recovery from that injury. The 29-year-old winger tallied three goals and six points in 31 games split between the Panthers and the Blackhawks last season and will likely have to settle for a rotational, bottom-six role with Chicago this year.

  • Blackhawks' Brett Connolly: Done for year

    Connolly (concussion) will miss Chicago's last two games of the season, Charlie Roumeliotis of NBC Sports Chicago reports.

    Connolly will finish the season having totaled just six points in 31 games split between the Blackhawks and Panthers. He'll likely be a regular in Chicago's bottom six in 2021-22.

  • Blackhawks' Brett Connolly: Dealing with concussion

    Connolly was diagnosed with a concussion after Thursday's game versus the Hurricanes, Ben Pope of the Chicago Sun-Times reports.

    Connolly was hurt in a second-period collision with the Hurricanes' Steven Lorentz, and head contact was made on the play. With the concussion diagnosis, the Blackhawks will likely take caution, which likely means Connolly's season is done. He produced six points in 31 appearances between the Blackhawks and the Panthers.

  • Blackhawks' Brett Connolly: Gathers helper

    Connolly recorded a power-play assist, two shots on goal and two hits in Saturday's 5-4 loss to the Panthers.

    Connolly set up Connor Murphy's goal in the second period. The 28-year-old Connolly hasn't done much since joining the Blackhawks, with just a goal and an assist in nine games for his new team. He has six points in 30 outings overall when his production with the Panthers is factored in.

  • Blackhawks' Brett Connolly: Making team debut

    Connolly (COVID-19 protocols) will be in the lineup against Columbus on Monday, Mark Scheig of The Hockey Writers reports.

    Connolly was acquired from the Panthers on Thursday and will make his first appearance with the Blackhawks on Monday. The 28-year-old tallied two goals and four points while averaging 12:36 of ice time in 24 games with the Panthers. He'll start his Chicago career in a fourth-line role.

  • Blackhawks' Brett Connolly: Traded to Chicago

    The Panthers traded Connolly, Riley Stillman, Henrik Borgstrom and a seventh-round pick to the Blackhawks in exchange for Lucas Carlsson and Lucas Wallmark on Thursday, Pierre LeBrun of The Athletic reports.

    This is primarily a cap dump for the Panthers, who are likely hoping to make additional moves now that Connolly's $3.5 million annual salary is off the books. Connolly has only appeared in 21 games with Florida this season, picking up just four points over that span, but he racked up 19 goals and 33 points in 69 games last campaign, so he could round back into form as a solid bottom-six option for Chicago. Connolly has two seasons remaining on his four-year, $14 million contract. He'll need to quarantine before joining his new team.
