Blackhawks Assign David Rundblad To Rockford

On Friday, the Blackhawks assigned defenseman David Rundblad to the Rockford IceHogs. He had been on loan to the ZSC Lions (Switzerland), but their postseason has come to an end.

Rundblad, 25, had two goals and 11 assists in 11 games with Zurich. He was credited with one assist in four playoff games.

  1. Ladd-Toews–Hossa
    Panarin–Anisimov–Kane
    Fleischmann–Shaw–Weise
    Desjardins–Rasmussen–Panik

    I believe these are the projected forward lines tonight, which I would argue is the best arrangement we’ve seen so far, most notably rasmussen and panik over mashinter. Hopefully this provides a good result against a relatively harmless opponent.

  2. Interesting that Rundblad simply did not go home after his season ended in Switzerland.

    I guess he still wants to be part of the Hawks organization.

  3. The NHL of the next 15 years will be built on the backs and skills of smart, agile defensemen like Dunk and Shayne Gostisbehere both smaller 5′ 11″but quick, great pivots, great moving laterally, good stick and hard to stick! Meaning hard to pin, always moving. Torey Krug of Boston I see a lot, he is like 5 foot 9 is also a great defensemen. Hawks are in big trouble in the back, it will be exposed in the playoffs. hence all those lame “behind the net” flip passes for prime scoring attempts.
