Blackhawks' Mike Hardman: Returned to minors
Hardman was reassigned to AHL Rockford on Wednesday, Charlie Roumeliotis of NBC Sports Chicago reports.
Hardman has appeared in eight games this season in which he recorded 25 hits, seven shots and six blocks but failed to register a point. Hardman's demotion to the minors would seem to indicate that Jujhar Khaira (illness) will be available against the Blues on Thursday.... See More ... See Less
Blackhawks' Brett Seney: Grabs one-year extension
Seney signed a one-year, two-way contract extension with the Blackhawks on Wednesday.
Seney has played exclusively in the minors for AHL Rockford this season, racking up an impressive 19 goals and 29 assists in 50 contests. The 27-year-old Ontario native has 14 points in 62 NHL games over the course of his four-year NHL career and will likely serve primarily as an AHL player for the organization moving forward....

Blackhawks' Petr Mrazek: Makes three saves in relief
Mrazek saved the three shots he faced in relief in Chicago's 4-1 loss to Dallas on Tuesday.
Typically when a goaltender enters a contest in relief, it's because the starter was either injured or pulled due to his play. This is a rare exception because Alex Stalock received a game misconduct late in the third period, which forced him to vacate the net. Chicago was already down 4-1 at that point, so Mrazek won't be charged with the loss. The 31-year-old goaltender is 8-20-3 with a 3.61 GAA and an .896 save percentage in 35 outings this season....

Blackhawks' Alex Stalock: Suffers loss, gets game misconduct
Stalock turned aside 26 of 30 shots before being ejected from Tuesday's 4-1 loss to Dallas.
Stalock first received a two-minute minor for unsportsmanlike conduct midway through the third period after arguing with the official, per Charlie Roumeliotis of NBC Sports Chicago. He later was handed a game misconduct, forcing Petr Mrazek to replace him in net. Chicago was already down 4-1 at that point, and Stalock was charged with the loss, bringing him down to 9-12-1 with a 2.86 GAA and a .913 save percentage in 23 appearances this season. The 35-year-old has lost his last four contests and has surrendered 14 goals in that span.... See More ... See Less
Blackhawks' Tyler Johnson: Snaps 14-game goal-scoring drought
Johnson collected a goal in a 4-1 loss to Dallas on Tuesday.
Johnson found the back of the net midway through the third period, but that only served to narrow the Stars' lead to 4-1. He has nine goals and 27 points in 48 appearances in 2022-23. Johnson registered five assists and didn't net a goal over his previous 14 games.... See More ... See Less
Blackhawks' Alex Stalock: Facing Stars
Stalock will guard the home goal Tuesday versus the Stars, Tracey Myers of NHL.com reports.
Stalock enters a tough matchup on a three-game losing streak. He's allowed 10 goals on 76 shots over that span, though all of those contests were on the road.... See More ... See Less
Blackhawks' Antti Saarela: Grabs two-year pact
Saarela inked a two-year, entry-level contract with Chicago on Tuesday.
Saarela recorded seven goals and 11 assists in 41 games for Swedish side Lukko Pauma this season. With his contract in hand, the 21-year-old Finn could make the jump to North America next season and link up with AHL Rockford. Selected by the organization in the fourth round of the 2019 NHL Draft, Saarela will likely need a few years to develop before getting a chance to crack the 23-man roster.... See More ... See Less
Blackhawks' Austin Wagner: Medically cleared
Wagner's hand infection has cleared, and he's been given the green light from a medical standpoint, but he'll need to participate in a few practices before potentially seeing game action, Ben Pope of the Chicago Sun-Times reports.
Although he's now healthy, it remains unclear when Wagner will make his Blackhawks debut. The 25-year-old winger hasn't appeared in an NHL contest since 2020-21, when he picked up eight points through 44 games with the Kings.... See More ... See Less
Blackhawks' Jarred Tinordi: Deemed day-to-day
Tinordi is considered day-to-day with a hip injury, Ben Pope of the Chicago Sun-Times reports.
Tinordi is expected to miss a few games with his nagging hip issue. He's picked up only eight points through 42 contests this campaign, so most fantasy managers shouldn't need to track his status.... See More ... See Less
Blackhawks' Philipp Kurashev: Done for the year
Kurashev (shoulder) has been shut down for the remainder of the season, Charlie Roumeliotis of NBC Sports Chicago reports.
Kurashev's shoulder injury won't require surgery, but with the Blackhawks out of playoff contention, the team has decided to shut him down for the final nine games of the regular season. The 23-year-old winger will finish the campaign having picked up nine goals, 25 points and an ugly minus-32 rating while averaging 17:25 of ice time through 70 contests.... See More ... See Less
Blackhawks' Jujhar Khaira: Under the weather
Khaira (illness) won't play Tuesday versus the Stars, Ben Pope of the Chicago Sun-Times reports.
With Khaira, Philipp Kurashev (upper body) and Austin Wagner (undisclosed) all dealing with injuries, the Blackhawks may have to deploy 11 forwards and seven defensemen against Dallas. Khaira will be reevaluated ahead of Thursday's matchup with St. Louis.... See More ... See Less
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.... See More ... See Less
Blackhawks' Lukas Reichel: Scores in loss
Reichel scored a goal on five shots in Sunday's 4-2 loss to the Canucks.
Reichel cut Chicago's deficit to 3-2 late in the third period, stuffing a loose puck past Collin Delia. The 20-year-old Reichel now has five goals and nine points in 17 games this season. While he hasn't provided consistent scoring, the 2020 first-round pick should continue to see first-line usage in Chicago down the stretch.... See More ... See Less
Blackhawks' Connor Murphy: Tallies in loss
Murphy scored a shorthanded goal in Sunday's 4-2 loss to Vancouver.
Murphy opened the scoring in the first period Sunday, beating Collin Delia with a wrister from the point while the Blackhawks were shorthanded. The goal is Murphy's first since Jan. 26, a stretch of 24 games, and just his fifth point in that span. The 30-year-old blueliner has six goals and 11 points through 71 games this season....

Blackhawks' Petr Mrazek: Falls to Vancouver
Mrazek allowed three goals on 30 shots in Sunday's 4-2 loss to the Blackhawks.
Mrazek, making his first start since a groin injury sidelined him for six games, held the Canucks scoreless until Phil Di Giuseppe's goal 19:43 into the second period. However, Vancouver would beat Mrazek twice in the third before adding an empty-netter, handing Chicago a 4-2 defeat. The 31-year-old netminder has gone over a month without a win as he falls to 8-20-3 with an .895 save percentage on the season.... See More ... See Less
Blackhawks' Jarred Tinordi: Could miss multiple games
Tinordi is dealing with a nagging hip issue and could miss "a few" games, Charlie Roumeliotis of NBC Sports Chicago reports.
Coach Luke Richardson noted that the team will know more before Tuesday's game against the Stars. Tinordi has been limited to 42 games played this season due to multiple injuries.... See More ... See Less
