Blackhawks' Matthew Highmore: Lands extension with Chicago
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Highmore penned a two-year contract extension with the Blackhawks on Thursday. The first year of the extension is a two-way deal, but it transitions into a one-way agreement for the 2021-22 season.

Highmore has appeared in 36 games with the big club this campaign, totaling two goals and six points while averaging 9:49 of ice time per contest. The 24-year-old forward may continue to bounce between leagues in 2020-21, but it wouldn't be surprising to see him carve out a full-time role in the Blackhawks' bottom six in 2021-22.

Blackhawks' Matthew Highmore: Pots second goal of year
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Highmore scored a goal on his lone shot and had two PIM in Tuesday's 6-5 loss to St. Louis.

Highmore's goal at 5:16 of the third period tied the game at 4-4. It was the first time finding the net since Dec. 27, a span of 18 games without a goal. The 23-year-old has five points in 29 games this season and has mustered just 27 shots on goal.

Blackhawks' Matthew Highmore: Adds helper in road win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Highmore generated an assist in Saturday's 8-4 win over the Flames.

Highmore had the lone helper on Alexander Nylander's second goal of the game. In 24 contests, Highmore is at four points, 22 shots and 24 hits. He's likely to remain in a limited, bottom-six role that probably won't yield enough production for fantasy owners.

Blackhawks' Matthew Highmore: Records assist in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Highmore notched an assist, two blocked shots and a plus-2 rating in Sunday's 5-2 win over the Jets.

Highmore had an assist on Erik Gustafsson's first-period tally. The helper snapped a nine-game point drought for the 23-year-old forward. He's up to three points, 19 shots on goal and 22 hits through 20 appearances. With a limited fourth-line role, Highmore isn't worth adding outside the deepest of fantasy formats.

Blackhawks' Matthew Highmore: Deposits first goal of 2019-20
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Highmore scored a goal on four shots and added two PIM in Friday's 5-2 win over the Islanders.

Highmore scored the Blackhawks' fifth and final goal, converting on a pass from David Kampf at 3:03 of the third period. Both of the 23-year-old's points have come in the last two games. Highmore has added 11 shots on goal and eight hits in 10 contests. His limited fourth-line role isn't likely to lead to much offense.

Blackhawks' Matthew Highmore: Earns helper
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Highmore posted an assist in Monday's 7-1 blowout loss to the Devils.

Highmore's first point of the year came on a Zack Smith goal early in the first period. The 23-year-old has just seven shots on goal and eight hits through nine appearances. A bottom-six role with the lowly Blackhawks will likely keep Highmore as a non-factor in fantasy play.

Blackhawks' Matthew Highmore: Packs bags for NHL
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Blackhawks recalled Highmore from AHL Rockford on Monday.

The Blackhawks need depth at forward since Andrew Shaw and Drake Caggiula are on IR with concussions, so Highmore gets the call after posting 14 points over 21 AHL games this season. The 23-year-old is the 13th forward on the roster, so there's no guarantee he draws in during the team's upcoming three-game road trip, starting Tuesday in Vegas.

Blackhawks' Matthew Highmore: Drops down to AHL
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Highmore was reassigned to AHL Rockford on Friday.

Highmore's demotion opened up a spot for defenseman Ian McCoshen on the roster after Duncan Keith suffered a groin injury in Friday's game versus the Avalanche. Highmore didn't get on the scoresheet in two appearances during his most recent stint with the parent club.

Blackhawks' Matthew Highmore: Called up from minors
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Highmore was recalled from AHL Rockford on Monday.

Highmore's promotion may just be a reward for his strong start to the season, as he's racked up 10 points in 17 minor-league games, though the Blackhawks faithful will no doubt be eager to see if everybody is on the ice for Monday's practice session. If the 23-year-old Highmore jumps into the lineup against Dallas on Tuesday, it would likely be in favor of Zach Smith or Kirby Dach.

Blackhawks' Matthew Highmore: In action Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Highmore (shoulder) will suit up versus Washington on Monday, Tracey Myers of reports.

Highmore will get his first taste of NHL action after undergoing shoulder surgery in November. The center will need to put together a strong training camp showing, starting with Monday's preseason tilt, in order to secure a spot on the 23-man roster for Opening Night versus the Flyers on Oct. 4.

Blackhawks' Matthew Highmore: Undergoes surgery
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Highmore underwent shoulder surgery Tuesday and will be sidelined for 4-to-6 months.

It appears that Highmore's season is almost certainly over, so he'll now set his sights on getting back to 100 percent ahead of the 2019-20 campaign. The 22-year-old forward notched three goals and seven points in eight AHL appearances prior to his injury.

Blackhawks' Matthew Highmore: Returns to developmental affiliate
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Highmore was reassigned to AHL Rockford on Monday.

The rookie from Halifax, Novia Scotia had been filling in with Jonathan Toews (upper body) tending to a lower-body injury, but the captain has two more days to rest up before the next game. As for the AHL's IceHogs, they'll go to work -- presumably with Highmore in tow -- facing the Moose on the road Wednesday.

Blackhawks' Matthew Highmore: Slated to play Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Highmore (undisclosed) is expected to be in the lineup for Thursday's game against the Canucks.

Highmore missed Tuesday's game against Colorado due to an undisclosed injury, but his absence will be limited to just one game. The 22-year-old forward, who's potted one goal in 10 contests with the Blackhawks this campaign, will skate with Vinnie Hinostroza and Brandon Saad on Chicago's third line against Vancouver.

Blackhawks' Matthew Highmore: Considered day-to-day
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Highmore (undisclosed) is considered day-to-day ahead of Tuesday's game against the Avalanche, Eric Lear of the Blackhawks' official site reports.

Highmore has all but been ruled out against Colorado, so Andreas Martinsen will almost certainly round out Chicago's depth up front Tuesday evening. Highmore, who's notched one goal in 10 games with the big club this campaign, will likely be reevaluated ahead of Thursday's matchup with the Canucks.

Blackhawks' Matthew Highmore: Sustains injury during Sunday's game
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Highmore left Sunday's game against St. Louis after awkwardly colliding with the boards and won't return.

This was Highmore's ninth career game in the NHL, and although he's only logged one assist, he was recently skating on the second line with Nick Schmaltz and Vinnie Hinostroza. If the 22-year-old isn't able to go Tuesday against Colorado, the Blackhawks might need to recall someone from AHL Chicago, as Anthony Duclair (knee) remains sidelined.

Blackhawks' Matthew Highmore: Ascends to big club
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Highmore was recalled from AHL Rockford on Monday.

After the Blackhawks dished Tommy Wingels to Boston and Ryan Hartman to Nashville, they were in need of offensive depth for their upcoming West Coast road trip, so they naturally picked Rockford's best scorer. Highmore has a team-high 21 goals and 35 points through 56 minor-league games, but he has yet to make his NHL debut.
