  • Blackhawks' Alex Vlasic: Sent down

  • Blackhawks' Alex Vlasic: Garners assist Saturday

    Vlasic logged an assist in Saturday's 7-3 loss to the Kraken.

    Vlasic set up Lukas Reichel's tally in the second period. Both players are expected to rejoin AHL Rockford soon for that team's playoff push. The assist was Vlasic's first point in six NHL games this season. He's added four shots on net, five hits, nine blocked shots and a minus-1 rating while playing in a fairly sheltered role. The 21-year-old should contend for a roster spot in training camp next fall.

  • Blackhawks' Alex Vlasic: Rises to top level

    Vlasic was recalled by the Blackhawks on Tuesday.

    Although Vlasic's been promoted, at this point it isn't clear if he'll be in the lineup for Tuesday's game versus the Stars. The 21-year-old defender has yet to appear in an NHL contest this season, but he's picked up two goals and 17 points through 52 games with AHL Rockford.

  • Blackhawks' Alex Vlasic: Sent to minors

    Chicago has sent Vlasic (undisclosed) to AHL Rockford, Charlie Roumeliotis of NBC Sports Chicago.

    Vlasic hasn't played yet this season due to the injury, but his reassignment is an indicator that he's healthy now. He'll get a chance to get back up to speed in the minors and gain some valuable experience. It wouldn't be surprising if Chicago calls him up at some point during the 2022-23 campaign.

  • Blackhawks' Alex Vlasic: Not expected to play

    Vlasic (undisclosed) isn't expected to play Wednesday versus Colorado, Charlie Roumeliotis of NBC Sports Chicago reports.

    Vlasic is evidently still feeling the effects of a shot he blocked during practice. With Vlasic unavailable, look for Filip Roos to jump into the lineup against the Avalanche.

  • Blackhawks' Alex Vlasic: Scores first career goal

    Vlasic scored a goal in 14:04 of ice time in Wednesday's 4-3 win over the Coyotes.

    Vlasic's shot bounced off a defender's skate and past Karel Vejmelka to give him his first NHL goal. A second-round pick in 2019, the 6-foot-6 defenseman isn't likely to put up a lot of points at the NHL level anytime soon after posting just eight in 32 games with Boston University this season. The Blackhawks are hopeful that the Illinois native can become a valuable, defensive-minded blueliner.
